About UsWho we are. The short story.
Tommy “the Bomber” Bonacci founded Bomber Eyewear back in 1997. The six-time World Champion Jet Ski Racer made his first pair of floating sunglasses from torn off pieces of foam padding from jet skis. Now, our family-run company uses this patented foam lining technology to offer water sports enthusiasts, fishermen and everyone in between eyewear that is comfortable, durable, stylish and able to float.
Tommy “the Bomber” Bonacci is a World Champion Jet Ski Racer, winning the world championship in 1989, 1990, 1995 and most recently making his comeback with back to back wins in 2014, 2015, and 2016.
In 1997, Tommy decided he was tired of having his eyewear slip off, bounce around or completely disappear into the ocean. It was then that Bomber Eyewear was born. Since then, our company has developed an eyewear line that uses patented foam lining to allow our sport sunglasses to float and provide a snug, comfortable “Soft Fit.”
We offer our shades in several varieties. With categories including polarized, paddling, fishing, and kid's sunglasses - something for everyone. All of our eyewear comes with our patented snug-fit floating technology and hard coatings to protect them from scratches.
We also offer a Safety Line of shades that meet ANSI Z87+ and impact-resistant standards and feature polycarbonate lenses. Our flexible frames, coupled with Bomber’s patented foam lining technology is what makes our eyewear ideal for comfort while keeping them lightweight. We also have wrap-around styles that provide protection against debris, wind and glare. Polarized options, bifocal lenses and a large variety of custom lenses are available.
We're pretty much just a mesh of fun, function, safety, and water.MORE THAN JUST A SUNGLASS
We know everyone has their favorite pricey sunglasses from some hot designer brand. We are not here to replace those favorites. Instead of risking your faves when fishing, cycling, boating, paddling, doing construction – pretty much anything that requires thrashing around in - put ours on. It's kind of like 'insurance' against both eye injury and breaking or losing your favorite pair of sunglasses in the water. Just saying.
