Mountaineering is the ultimate test of your physical and mental fortitude, as you climb treacherous peaks to earn the reward of breathtaking views. To ensure your eyes drink in all the visual glory atop the mountain, Oakley created the Clifden sunglasses.

The Oakley Clifden Sunglasses are marvelous mountaineering shades with a functional athletic design for intrepid adventurers tackling outdoor mounds. They have Unobtainium nose pads for excellent grip even when you sweat, a removable bridge blocker, and Unobtainium (a proprietary material developed by the brand) side shields to block glare and protect your eyes. For pristine views, the sunglasses feature a category 4 Prizm lens, offering unmatched protection in extreme light scenarios. And it has a lightweight 20-inch woven stainless steel leash, ensuring the shades won’t fall off on difficult parts of your descent. There’s no word on price or release date yet, but expect the Clifden sunglasses to be available soon.
