Redesigned and Better Than Ever
The resilient, battle-hardened CDI™ sunglass has a long track record of saving eyes and lives in hostile situations. Following a series of comprehensive overhauls, the redesigned CDI™ has never been better.
The ESS CDI's U.S. MIL SPEC* high-impact lenses can be easily exchanged for quick adaptation to your environment. Its high-speed low-drag frame and shatter-resistant lenses make the CDI™ comfortable and cool enough for downtime yet functional and rugged enough for the battlefield. Medium fit.
The CDI's Lateral Exchange System™ makes interchanging any of the seven available lens colors quick and easy:
New Improvements Include:
- New cam-hinge temples feature SmartTension™ engineering for enhanced retention and a more comfortable fit.
- New co-molded nosepiece and full-wrap temple sleeves feature advanced no-slip rubber that provides maximum slip resistance, even when moist.
- Redesigned strap attachment system provides more secure engagement of strap and frame.
- Now includes a zippered hard case and a micro-fiber pouch/cleaning cloth.
Frame Now Also Available in Desert Tan.
Lenses are available in: Clear, Smoke Gray, Hi-Def Yellow, Mirrored Copper, Mirrored Gray, Mirrored Silver and Polarized Mirrored Gray.
CDI Kit Includes: A Black CDI frame, two sets of 2.2mm high-impact lenses (Clear and Smoke Gray), an elastic retention strap, a micro-fiber pouch/cleaning cloth, and a zippered hard case.
CDI Rx Inserts are also available.
* U.S. Mil Spec MIL-PRF-31013 (Clause 22.214.171.124), ANSI Z87.1-2010, CE EN 166 and U.S. Federal OSHA compliant (when not used in conjunction with Rx Inserts). All ESS lenses provide 100% UVA/UVB protection.
Important safety note for CDI™ Rx Insert users operating in proximity to fragmentation hazards:
ESS strongly recommends the use of high-impact polycarbonate prescription lenses to optimize impact resistance in the CDI™ sunglass. High-impact polycarbonate prescription lens material will maximize the impact resistance of the system well beyond that offered by CR-39 resin or other common materials used in prescription lens manufacturing.

For the past 10 years, I have worn a pair of these (with the provided clear lenses) while driving at night. The rubber on the temple area has finally broken down. I got a replacement pair, this time with the yellow lenses, which l really like. They are very light weight and they don’t cause any discomfort. Nobody tells you this, but your eyes should always be protected while driving, day and night. These do the job.
