About this project
Why We Need Your Contribution:
All kidding aside, we truly believe in our product and need your help. Pit Viper began when founder, Chuck Mumford, bought a handful of military surplus sunglasses and began painting them in his garage. From there with his co-founder, Chris Garcin, they have poured their hearts, souls, money, time & energy into building a company that promotes an awesome product with a fun loving message. The original military surplus from where we made Pit Vipers has run dry and we are trying to put them back into production. The production run Pit Vipers will also be upgraded in a handful of ways to help us continue to improve our product.
What Your Money Will Go Toward:
- Creation of the Pit Viper production mold.
- A first run of about 5,000 pairs (the minimum quantity required to produce them).
- Some modest administrative cost (like rent for our warehouse).
We believe in a fun loving, light hearted company that is just as much about loving the Pit Viper fans as it is about making an awesome product.
Pit Vipers Are:
- Z87 Safety Rated
- 100% UV Protecting
- Float Resistant
- Party Enhancing
Gifts for Contributions:
The one that counts, of course, is a pair of the first ever production run Pit Vipers. This will be the first and the cheapest place you will ever get to demand respect & authority.
We are now offering a mirrored lens option with every pair of Pit Vipers! Any contribution level that includes a pair will have the option to get the first ever mirrored lens Pit Vipers.
We are making 5 colorways to launch into production:
PIT VIPER - A SHORT HISTORY:
An original military design that has found its way into the hands of 90s inspired sports enthusiasts, Pit Vipers combine all of the functionality required by our troops with all of the style required by our beloved founder, Chuck Mumford.
Pit Viper was founded in 2012 when Chuck Mumford had enough of his "trendy" sports sunglasses and took one small step into the future. Now with the help of his co-founder, Chris Garcin, Pit Viper is ready to make the world a more fun place.
Why Everyone Needs a Pair of Pit Vipers:
Pit Vipers have 3 Adjustment Points:
Turbo is a temple adjustment that will tilt the lenses to your liking and will give your Pit Vipers the face grip you need for the correct level of intensity. Need to turn it up? Go Full Turbo. Time for relaxing in a hot tub? Op-Turbo is the setting of choice.
E-Spot, also known as Ear Piece Spot, is ideal for dialing in the perfect wrap around your ear holes. Never thought about how far back your ears are on your head? Neither have most people. But it matters. Get the right fit and decide how deep you want it in.
The form fitting nose piece dubbed "The Nose Bender" will match your bridge and give you the comfort and performance you deserve. Nose Bender, it has a memory.

Risks and challenges
The full funding of this project will allow Pit Viper to place the production order that has been prototyped and thoroughly inspected. Unexpected delays are possible if our new product does not meet our rigorous standards. However, we do not anticipate further delays. We have partnered with a crack team of sourcing experts to guarantee our product meets 100% of our criteria.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
