Overlord Kit

In Edge Tactical Eyewear's Overlord Kit, the flexible and durable rubberized frame is equipped with a soft thermoplastic rubber nosepiece and temple arms to create a comfortable, nonslip fit. The four blade-style lenses can be easily and quickly interchanged with one gloved hand. All non-polarized lenses feature Vapor Shield, a built-in "military grade" anti-fog technology to completely resist fog, no sprays or wipes needed. The Overlord Kit includes the soft-touch matte black frame, four interchangeable lenses (clear vapor shield, tiger’s eye vapor shield, G-15 vapor shield, and polarized gradient smoke), collapsing MOLLE-compatible case, microfiber lens cleaning bag, chamois cleaning cloth, and noose and neoprene strap eyewear-retaining leashes. http://edgeeyewear.com/site_tactical/

Gargoyles Performance Eyewear


Gargoyles Rucker glasses are built to provide military-grade protection and performance in a wearable style. Rucker is made to meet MIL-PRF-32432(GL) for high-velocity and high-mass impact, and to exceed all ANSI Z87+1 protection specifications. The teardrop lens shape offers 180-degree wrap protection. Lens vents promote better airflow to prevent fogging, and a built-in brow bar helps keep sweat out of your eyes. Gargoyles says TR90-NZZ frames and the Gargoyles G-Loc hinges are 11 times stronger than industry standard TR90. Rucker's temples are flexible and thin for maximum comfort under ear pro or helmets. Individually adjustable nose pads help ensure a custom fit and are ribbed to help airflow and provide extra grip. With anti-reflective and Tri-Tech oleophobic treatments on the lenses, the company says you'll notice light control in any environment and ease of cleaning. https://gargoyleseyewear.com/eyewear/rucker
