MONTGOMERY, Ala. – Eight months ago, The Powell Group and Solar Bat Sunglasses tapped in to Hank Parker’s decades of experience as an outdoorsman to design best-in-class outdoor eyewear for anglers and hunters. The initial offering to come from the relationship is the HP1.

“The initial entry into the polarized fishing market is the HP1 in Solar Bat’s Pro Signature Series,” Gary Nesty, O.D., owner of Solar Bat Sunglasses,

said. “Solar Bat welcomes Hank’s vast experience in the outdoors to produce the very best sunglass designs in outdoor performance eyewear. I have known Hank for more than fifteen years, and the timing was right for us to work together to design sunglasses that meet the demands of serious outdoorsmen.”

The HP1 is the first sunglass designed as a result of the partnership. Soon to follow will be an entry-level sunglass model for anglers. Then, the partnership will turn its attention to hunting and shooting eyewear.

“Developing quality products with Gary Nesty for Solar Bat Sunglasses has been a breath of fresh air,” Parker said.

“Gary is an optometrist and outdoorsman so he knows the science behind what it takes to develop high performance sunglasses. Our combined efforts and his medical knowledge resulted in an awesome product. Plus, Solar Bat products are made in the U.S.A.”
