info

In 1980 Ray-Ban introduced the Ambermatic Mirror lens,

described at the time as the, "...pre-eminent skiing lens.".

(The plain Ambermatic All Weather lens had already been

out a few years before this pair was made - here's an ad

from 1978, which shows them in a Vagabond.) But the

mirrored version were specifically for sports, our pair a

double gradient mirror, better for water/ski sports.

(See this pair with full mirror lenses in the 1980 ad, above.)

Like Ray-Ban's Timberline from the same period, these

are named after a well known US mountain ski resort -

Powderhorn is in beautiful Colorado. Not a large pair

so could suit sportsman or sportswoman.
