“I am super excited to start this adventure with TGR. I’ve always loved watching TGR films, so it’s a dream come true to be able to be part of the production and the TGR Optics team.”

Teton Gravity Research’s optics line has evolved and developed over the years to feature some of the most high-performing, innovative, and durable eyewear in the outdoor industry while also including creative collaborations along the way.
Made with world-renowned Zeiss lenses, the Jackson Hole-based company has solidified itself in the collaboration space with Grateful Dead designs and a plethora of other artists. The athletes who rock this eyewear have also gone on some of the wildest expeditions, such as Griffin Post and his discovery of Bradford Washburn’s old artifacts in the Yukon Territory and wild ski lines with Kai Jones in the British Columbia backcountry.
“We live our lives behind the lens, so we wanted to set the standard with TGR Optics. Carl Zeiss knows how important vision and optics are to what we do, so it was an easy decision to work with Zeiss on our polarized lens technology. The Italians know lenses and sunglasses better than anyone, so we were incredibly stoked to partner with one of the most reputable and sustainable factories in the world. Quality and sustainability are core values of TGR, so we couldn’t be more stoked to release these into the wild and see the world through our lens.”
