Pit Viper is here to party.
Sunrise to sunset, reef breaks to ridge lines, holeshots to holy shit, we build the functional, fun-loving gear that is serious about taking things less seriously.
Our foundation is creating eyewear that can take a beating. Our goal is building quality gear for the activities we love. We are bold. We take chances. We will always deliver the optimal blend of style and performance.
So, where’s the party at? It’s anywhere. It’s a mindset. It’s an “everyone come along”, “let’s have a good time”, “we take care of each other” attitude that encourages you to fly your flag and share the stage with other people that fly theirs. We call these people Key Players.
Big deal if you didn’t “make varsity,” so what if you weren’t “prom royalty,” who cares that you don’t “own a toothbrush”. Key Players come from all backgrounds to take life by the horns, bring home the bacon, throw you a curveball, put all their eggs in one basket, tickle your funny bone, ham it up, break the ice and the glass ceiling, and always lay out the welcome mat.
Whatever your definition of party, that is where Pit Viper aims to be.
Pit Viper was founded on a simple principle - sunglasses that can take a beating.
In the spring of 2012, Chuck Mumford felt a disturbance in the force. He had come to realize after years of skiing, partying, and living it up, there were no high-end sport sunglasses out there that could hold up to his lifestyle. It was then that he started to develop a rugged product that could be shot at, sat on, shoved in pockets, run over, and still maintain their sun and wind bucking ability. He painted his creations to match his extreme lifestyle, and damn did they look good. Chuck teamed up with professional champagne popper Chris Garcin and together they brought Pit Vipers from the Rocky Mountains to the world stage.
We’ve been selling these highly functional and fashionable sunglasses for 10 years now, always stepping up to the plate to bring out the optimal blend of style and performance.
