SHADES OF SUMMER - Find Your Zeal
To create something truly meaningful, we each must become proficient explorers - prodding and pulling at the mystery until the thing that we had set out to find unravels before our very eyes. Mishaps and misadventure are simply a sign leading us ever closer on our quest to discover, and the only currency called for is time.

Zeal Optics Ellume Challenge
Zeal set out to put our ellume lenses to the test in our backyard of Boulder, CO. A quick stop on Pearl Street Mall and Chautauqua Park proved to be the perfect sun-drenched testing grounds to demonstrate the color-enhancing clarity and craftsmanship in our plant-based, polarized lenses. Don't take our word for it; see for yourself.

High quality, and durable
- I've put it through the wringer
- True to size
I have had these sunglasses for 7 months now and have taken them far and wide. I have dropped them more than a few times, a couple times in a river and the lenses are still perfectly fine. I prefer these over a pair of smith chroma-pop sunglasses because they seem to be more durable (I had some lens problems with my Smiths but I think it was because I left them on my dashboard) and I prefer the lens. I have dark grey lens and it is a more subtle, less instagram like filter than something like the chroma pops I had. I have loved these glasses in every condition I have worn them in. Plus eco-friendly!

- I've put it through the wringer
This is my 2nd pair of Zeals and I love them! I own the Brewer as well and both of them are great in different ways. Optical quality wise, both are top notch. The only main different between these two are how they fit on my face, and the fact that the Carson Copper lens has a blue finish that really makes colors pop and adds contrast. The fit on these is not as perfect as my Brewers, but how can you beat perfection? I would recommend these to someone with a more medium sized face as they are some of the widest in the Zeal line. If you want durable, stylish, and performance based sunglasses, look no further than the Carsons. Couldnt ask for a better pair of sunnies for helping me spot hogs on the river
