Aviator

Originally designed for U.S. Aviators in 1937, Ray-Ban Aviator sunglasses offer iconic styling with exceptional quality, performance and comfort.

RAY-BAN AVIATOR 1937

The Aviator, Born of Ambition

The story starts with John A. Macready: a daring pilot and a legend in the making. Determined to fly higher than those before him, he approached the optics company making equipment for the US military in search of goggles that would protect pilots from light at high altitudes. They developed the perfect tool. An innovation in aviation. Lenses that would keep pilots’ vision free of glare. Distinctive teardrop lenses that fit around their oxygen masks. The Aviator was born.

Flight and Fight

In the 1930s, Aviators were first introduced into the military. Strong. Bold. Brave. Later made standard-issue, the frames took on the characteristics of the heroes associated with them. In 1937, Anti-Glare Sunglasses – as they were called – were released to the public and soon renamed. Ray-Ban became the first sunglasses brand in history.

Shooter

Ray-Ban Shooter

Changing Elements

Ray-Ban Aviator came back down to earth with Shooter. The first reinvention, switching attention from the pilot to the hunter. Designed for shooting. Meanwhile the Aviator's curved bridge is replaced with a ring: said to be used to hold the hunter’s cigarette, freeing his hands for his gun.

New Frontiers

Hot on the heels of the Shooter came the Outdoorsman. Designed for outdoor leisure activities like fishing and shooting, the bold brow bar was originally added to stop sweat running into the wearer’s eyes. Today it’s a bold style statement.

Ray-Ban Leather Craft

The World Through Gold-Tinted Glasses

The Aviator continued its journey of reinvention with colour-changing Ambermatic lenses. Reminiscent of California road tripping in the haze of summer, these amber-tinted lenses react to the light – darkening from golden yellow to rich brown to block out glare. Today the Classic Ambermatic is relaunched for a new era. Ambermatic Craft celebrates the historical design but adds genuine leather details.
