Jack Carr and GATORZ Eyewear Unveil Limited-Edition Specter Collaboration

CARLSBAD, CA – July 9, 2024: GATORZ Eyewear is excited to announce its latest collaboration with best-selling author and former Navy SEAL Jack Carr. The limited-edition Jack Carr Specter x GATORZ eyewear will launch on July 9, 2024, coinciding with the release of Carr's highly anticipated seventh James Reece novel, Red Sky Mourning.
Jack Carr's illustrious 20-year career in Naval Special Warfare saw him lead special operations teams as a Team Leader, Platoon Commander, Troop Commander, and Task Unit Commander. From an enlisted SEAL sniper to commanding a Special Operations Task Unit in Iraq, Carr's leadership and expertise are well-recognized. His extensive experience is reflected in his best-selling novels and popular podcast, which have earned him a dedicated following.
Carr's history with GATORZ sunglasses dates back to the late 1990s when he was part of SEAL Team FIVE. Known for their slim fit, adjustability, durability, and wrap-around protection, GATORZ became a staple in his gear, accompanying him on every deployment. Carr's affinity for GATORZ has continued, with the eyewear making appearances in his novels and the Terminal List TV series.
"We are beyond excited to partner with Jack Carr once again for this special edition of our Specter eyewear," said Scott Sorensen, Head of Marketing for GATORZ Eyewear. "Jack's commitment to quality and performance aligns perfectly with our brand values. This collaboration is a testament to our shared dedication to providing top-notch gear for those who demand the best."
The initial eyewear collaboration between Jack Carr and GATORZ Eyewear launched on July 4, 2023, and sold out within two hours. This overwhelming success led to the development of a new collaborative style to celebrate the release of Carr's latest book. The new Jack Carr Specter x GATORZ features Carr's signature cross tomahawks on the popular Specter model, a performance eyewear piece designed and built in the USA to handle any challenge.
"Working with GATORZ has been an incredible journey," said Devin Gillette, Vice President of E-commerce & Merchandising for Jack Carr. "Jack's personal connection to the brand and his insistence on authenticity in his gear make this collaboration truly special. The new Specter model not only celebrates the release of Red Sky Mourning but also pays homage to the enduring legacy of excellence that GATORZ represents."
The Jack Carr Specter x GATORZ limited-edition eyewear will be available for purchase starting July 9, 2024. Given the rapid sell-out of the previous collaboration, fans and customers are encouraged to act quickly to secure their pair.
