Popticals Sunglasses: New Styles for 2017

by • May 3, 2017 • Accessories, Press Releases, Product ReviewsComments (0)358

Popticals sunglasses first popped on the scene during last year’s ICAST show. With a unique ability to store out of the way to eliminate getting scratched or broken, Popticals sunglasses are sure to become a fan favorite.

Award-winning travel and action sports eyewear company Popticals is adding three new sunglasses, the Popair, Popstorm, and PopH20, to its line next month. Popticals eyewear solves the problem of how to store wrap-around style sunglasses when not worn. Typically, sunglasses are pushed to the top of the head, hung from a shirt collar, or set down somewhere where they could be scratched or broken. With the company’s patented FL2 Micro-Rail System®, Popticals performance eyewear quickly and easily fold up to half their size for storage in a compact carrying case.

Popticals: Portable Sports Sunglasses
Built into Popticals frames is the patented FL2 Micro-Rail System® which allows the frame to separate at the bridge, and the lenses to slide parallel and nest on top of each other. About midway on each arm is a small hinge, which allows it to be collapsed as well. Once fully collapsed, Popticals eyewear fit into a small easy-to-pack case. The system consists of high-quality magnets and stainless steel components to ensure durable, long-lasting functionality. Fitted with crystal-clear Carl Zeiss Vision NYDEF™ lenses, Popticals performance eyewear are available in multiple styles for travel and any sport.
