Wiley X Saber

These advanced sunglasses from Wiley X come with interchangeable lenses in matte black, smoke grey, light rust and vermillion. This allows the wearer to adapt to varying light conditions quickly. The 3mm lenses are ballistic approved. This means they are not only approved through ANSI tests but also by the Military Fragment Test (MIL-PRF-31013) which involves having projectiles shot at the lenses to prove their level of protection. The lenses also offer 100% UV protection.

RRP: £63.95 but offered at £57.99 through RX Sport

Pilla Vigilante: 3 glasses for the price of 1

If you’re looking for a top-end model, you’ll no doubt be familiar with the Pilla range. The all-new Pilla Zeiss Vigilante model is a three lens set with a difference: it’s not one frame and three lenses, but three individual frames – perfect for the UK’s notoriously changeable weather.

The Vigilante has seven base curve Zeiss lenses for maximum eye protection and it features temple tips that are easily adjusted to customise fit and provide optimal comfort. The temple tip is made of a high grade performance rubber and has a titanium inner core.

RRP: £560 or call 01256 472064

Deben clear glasses

We’ve all got to start somewhere when it comes to buying shooting kit and a pair of glasses are a must if you’re clay shooting. These entry level PT4000 Shooting Glasses from Deben provide the protection you need for all types of shooting, without breaking the bank.

Made from lightweight polycarbonate, the lenses are CE Approved (EN166:2001) and impact resistant. The arms are adjustable for both angle and length and the wrap-around design offers maximum protection from falling clay fragments.

RRP: £8.95

Rudy Project Airblast

Featuring three interchangeable lenses and vented frame, the Airblast has been designed by Italian eyewear specialists Rudy Project specifically for shooting. A large lens maximises vertical coverage, while the frame’s rimless shape provides the greatest possible peripheral vision. Lenses in matte black, racing red, transparent and laser copper.

RRP: £208.99

Sportviz XTS sunglasses

If you require a prescription, this flexible system is ideal: you get a lightweight but tough and fog-proofed prescription insert (or ‘Inzert’) that clips behind the glasses. The inserts are interchangeable between a range of products from skiing to snorkelling.

The XTS sunglass has interchangeable lenses – these are polarised, but clear and yellow are available, too – lightweight frames with Hydragrip nose and earpieces. It also come with a tough hard case. Best of all is the price: single vision Inzerts are just £40, while the XTS glasses are just £49.95.


At the other end of the prescription spectrum is Optilabs, the prescription sports glasses specialists. These glasses offer Zeiss frames with stunning Ultra 2000 (Drivewear) polarised lenses which provide outstanding results in all light conditions. If the performance of sponsored shooter Brett Winstanley is anything to go by, these glasses are top notch.
