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.
