With an overall finish that belies its midrange price, the Sterling looks and feels way more expensive than it is - there's even a useful ‘Eyewear Dock' for safe spec storage.

The strong, flexible cradle and large, easy-to-use dial adjuster ensure a snug but comfortable fit while the Bug Stop inner liner should mean fewer creepy crawlies find their way through the 18 vents.
