ZEAL Optics was recently honored with an award for our ecological awareness and use of Beetlekill wood by Choose Outdoors. Beetle infestation has devastated millions of acres of Colorado forests, and ZEAL has found a way to use this wood that would otherwise go to waste. From our headquarters in Boulder, Colorado to our new displays in stores all over the globe, you will notice that we are actively incorporating the use of this wood into all facets of the brand.

The Get Out More tour rolled through Knoxville, Tennessee this week and ZEAL rep, Morgan Jones, was there to get in on the action!

Included in their gear essentials are ZEAL sunglasses because they protect from UV-A, -B and -C and HEV light, are lightweight, include ProFlex rubber so that they stay on your face and are polarized to reduce glare.
