The USA Vise is HERE.

It's been a long time coming, so it is with great pride that we are releasing Heat Wave Visual's first pair of sunglasses produced in the United States. It has always been a goal for us to manufacture products domestically, so when the time came we partnered with the most prominent domestic eyewear injection molding facility right here in California. Working closely with their team of heritage engineers and designers we sought to take our best selling Vise frame and achieve the perfect balance of premium materials, lightweight comfortable fit, and affordable price point all while being produced in the USA.

The USA Vise builds upon the legacy of the Vise by adding a glossy finish, a first for Heat Wave, two high-quality traditional 5 barrel hinges in a custom gold plating, and utilizing a Grilamid TR90 premium thermoplastic frame assembly. The USA Vise is more flexible, more resistant to chemicals and heat, all while being lighter and more comfortable to wear. The USA Vise also meets ANSI z87 requirements and includes custom embossed markings on the inside of the temples.

Those look great and i love the bringing production to the USA part, it looks as though they are not compatible with the existing vise arms the ability to change the pieces up on these was and is a major selling point to me. I have around 3 pairs ive broken 1 pair of the import ones.

what is the plan going forward on the USA ones?
