Leupold & Stevens, Inc., has announced it will launch a Performance Eyewear product line, which will be available to consumers in early 2020. Designed, machined and assembled in the United States, the entire Performance Eyewear line is made from lightweight, ballistic-rated materials and ships with scratch-resistant polarized lenses as rugged and clear as the company’s award-winning sporting optics.
Designed with hunters and shooters in mind, five styles will be available at launch. “Leupold users expect the highest-quality optics in the world,” said Tim Lesser, Vice President of Product Development at Leupold & Stevens, Inc. “When we chose to enter the eyewear market, we spent two years making sure the final product lived up to our exacting standards. The result is a product line which takes full advantage of the 112 years of optics manufacturing expertise only Leupold can offer.”
All five styles share top-of-the-line features like infused polarized lenses, which eliminate glare and keep eyes fresh whether on the water or in the field. Leupold’s Guard-ion hydrophobic coating sheds dirt, water and fingerprints for a clear, crisp image, while Diamondcoat-hardened lenses reduce surface scratches. Daylight Max technology, meanwhile, provides UV protection for optimal performance in bright conditions. Each style is compatible with prescription lens requirements.
Built for the range—and beyond—three of the five designs go a step further by offering an ANSI Ballistic Rating. Translation: they meet or exceed ANSI high-velocity-impact standards for eye protection.
“We designed this eyewear for every possibility,” said Zach Bird, Product Line Manager for Leupold & Stevens, Inc. “Whether you’re on the range each weekend, hiking a ridge looking for a trophy bull, or just driving to work every day, our Performance Eyewear line has something for you—and every model is designed, machined, and assembled right here in the USA.”
