Check out these innovative sunglasses from Veyes. They’re flip-up sunglasses that don’t use traditional temple bars and instead attach to the visor of a baseball hat. The lenses are interchangeable and are made of polycarbonate with UV400 protection and are available in 5 different colors. They’re currently running a Kickstarter campaign with pledges starting at $30 for a set. As someone who wears glasses these seem like a pretty convenient way to be able to wear yellow-tinted shooting glasses in front of my prescription lenses.

Flip-up sunglasses that attach to the visor of your hat

How often do you wear sunglasses with a hat during your favorite sporting activity? Have you ever noticed how uncomfortable and inconvenient they are? Let’s face it, sunglasses and hats weren’t designed to be worn together – until now.

Introducing VEYES, the 21st century version of flip-up sunglasses. VEYES eliminates the annoying temple bars associated with conventional sunglasses and attaches the lens directly to the visor of your hat. And, the lens flips up and down.

These aren’t your grandpa’s flip-up sunglasses!

PRODUCT OVERVIEW

VEYES is unlike anything you’ve seen before. The VEYES frame attaches to a curved visor and pivots the lens between a down (operative) position and an up (inoperative) position. The frame contains a hidden spring that keeps the lens in the up position and automates movement of the lens from the down position to the up position.

Easily attaches to most curved visors

VEYES is designed to fit most curved visors. Believe it or not, most curved visors have the exact same dimensions and curvature. To attach VEYES to a curved visor, you simply slide the front clip of the VEYES frame onto the front of the visor, and then insert the sides of the visor into the two side clips on the VEYES frame, making sure they are evenly aligned.

High quality, interchangeable lenses

VEYES uses high quality polycarbonate lenses complete with UV400 protection, which blocks harmful UVA and UVB radiation. VEYES comes with 5 interchangeable lenses:

Dark gray polarized
Clear
Yellow tint
Blue tint
Multi-colored mirrored

    Neat. Wonder what the weight is? Also only talks about UVA/B protection, wonder what type of impact they are rated for… Kind of the point, besides looking cool AF

  • Plumbiphilious

    I wear glasses and hate having to put on uncomfortable goggles when shooting anything larger than .22 (I can’t afford prescription shooting glasses at the moment but I’m in that weird salary range where I can at least buy .22LR or 9mm) to keep my eyes safe.

    I think this is brilliant. I’d love to see some blast tests though, to see that an impact just doesn’t knock them off the hat and still let shrapnel blast into eyes.

    I can’t tell if this is really cool or really lame

    • Zachary marrs

      Depends, are you a dad?

  • Cal S.

    This would come in handy when you don’t want your glass’s ear supports being pushed relentlessly into your temples under electronic ear pro.

    • Bill

      I am not affiliated with the company, but the Smith Aegis comes in a flat temple version that makes this a non-issue. Revision has a similar model. Both are highly recommended – I seldom wear that that other brand anymore

      • Squirreltakular

        I just took the ear socks off of my M Frames and it’s way more comfortable.

  • TheNotoriousIUD

    This is a rip off of my glasses mounted hat idea.

    • Post some photos of yours and the other readers can give you some feedback.

      • TheNotoriousIUD

        Im too depressed to continue development.

  • Bill

    If, and only if, this meet ANSI or ARPEL Impact standards, it could be brilliant. Many, many trainers require shooters to wear a baseball cap as a safety measure, to prevent the possibility of hot brass flipping behind eyepro. Now add ear pro, and you’d almost have a logging helmet.

    I hate wearing hats, but could get behind this. The same principle has worked on helmets with NVG for years.

  • Nicholas Chen

    Doesn’t work if you like to wear your hat backwards when using a scoped rifle.

    • John

      It also poses some problems to those of us who move their cap around to, you know, block the sun with the bill. I’m always tilting my cap up, or bringing it down, or moving it to the side a tad. I use it like a tool, not as a pretty piece of jewelry.

  • Squirreltakular

    But… But… What am I going to do with all of my Notch hats??

  • Don Ward

    * Flip up collar sold separately.

  • Grindstone50k

    I’m sure this’ll catch on like wildfire…

  • Captain Obvious

    Baseball players have been using flip up sunglasses for decades. They cost about $15.

    • Captain Obvious

      I meant to say, clip on flip ups. Do the google.

  • Cm

    i went through the whole d*mn KS site page and nothing mentioned if you have to wear prescription eyeglasses. nor does it look like there is any type of compatibility. as for using them as shooting or safety glasses they are only going to be as rugged and secure as your BB cap. he originally designed them for golfing and in that vid they are shown being used flipped up anyway. also what happens when your cap blows off? tighten it down? oh, wait! that’s what this is supposed to alleviate.
