Fear and Loading: Revision Military Branches Out

posted on November 13, 2018

Revision Military systems has expanded to create a more stylish brand tailored for civilian sportsmen, which still remains true to the protection mission that has made it a mainstay with the United States Armed Forces. The new Revision Outdoor performance-focused eyewear remains designed and assembled in the U.S., and harnesses the same state-of-the-art facilities and technology that have made the company a legend among demanding shooters.

There are three major lines available already, each crafted specifically for hunters, fishermen and “everyday adventurers.” Even the latter defies its mild-mannered billing by meeting ANSI Z87.1 general requirements, ANSI Z87.1 high-impact testing standards, EN166 clause 7.3.2 resistance guidelines and CE certified resistant to fogging in compliance with Regulation (EU) 2016/425. Four polarized lens tints are available, each treated with the company’s proprietary OcuMax AF lens-coating technology to provide anti-fog, anti-scratch and smudge-resistant performance. In addition, each lens meets military ballistic impact requirements. Custom prescription lenses are also available.

“As we talked to members of the hunting community, we discovered a need for technical eyewear built for the modern hunter,” said Jonathan Blanshay, CEO of Revision. “We set out to fill that need using our military experience and insight from expert hunters and anglers to build the most protective and high-performance eyewear available for use in the extreme outdoors.”

The Revision Pursuer is made for the high-elevation hunt, while the Revision Caller is more at home on the water. All the lenses are paired with durable, ultra-light frames that weigh just over an ounce to ensure all-day comfort. A choice of three frame colors and three lens options allows users to fully customize each pair for their specific styles, needs and preferences. Every model comes with a custom retention strap and an innovative storage system, that includes an eyewear pouch with a microfiber cloth and a protective dry-bag. All models also offer a limited lifetime warranty. For more information, check out revisionoutdoor.com
