This Insanely Happy SPY Crew Loves Supporting Your Mission


These folks just won’t stop smiling.

And that’s what we love about them.

We met up with three members of the SPY crew at their appropriately named Happy Camp in Leucadia, CA. As one of the first brands to join up with our site, we’ve got a special place in our hearts for these guys. They’re the makers of best-selling performance eyewear for people who like to move, rock, and play.

Plus, many of you know, they’re hugely reliable for uniform-compliant, ballistic-certified eyewear. This week, SPY is hooking up GovX members with an all-new, exclusive line of American flag-ornamented frames. Check these out. I feel a little extra freedom coming my way right now, don’t you?

Looking like proud devotees to the coastal California culture, SPY crew members Todd, Maddy, and Charlie strolled into the Happy Camp—a hip, meet-up venue with a bar, stage area, and cool industrial feel. The late afternoon Sprinter train raced by on the cliff-side tracks as we got a tour of the storefront social club. Which you should definitely visit one of these days.

All first responders need quality eyewear to allow them to focus on the duties at hand. We build our frames with the best materials and put innovative technology into our lenses because the last thing you want to worry about while you’re on the job is the quality of your eyewear.

As one of the first supporters of GovX, we’re happy our partnership allows us to get our product into the hands of those who serve both at home and abroad. That's what it's all about.

Charlie Ninegar

A few years ago, we started to notice a lot of military personnel were searching for protective eyewear and sunglasses. This triggered our expansion of our ANSI-certified line, and reconfirmed how important it was for SPY. Right now, we offer three frames that meet that standard—Quanta, Bounty, and General—and we’ve got more in the pipeline.

We've also found ANSI level protective eyewear to be highly sought after for those working construction, and even oil drilling. When it comes to safety, eyewear like this can really make a difference.

Maddy Isbell

From day one, we've offered a civil servant program, but unfortunately it was limited to local firefighters, police officers, military personnel and others near our company headquarters. By partnering with GovX, we're able to reach this audience nationwide. It's important for us to be able to provide protective eyewear and fashion to all civil servants who love SPY, and we're happy GovX has made that possible.
