A staple among military and law enforcement personnel, Revision protective eyewear systems are acclaimed for their versatility and durability. Those same products are also available to the civilian market, and the Stingerhawk Shooter’s Kit is a good example of a package specifically designed to meet the needs of today’s firearm enthusiasts. The kit includes the durable molded frame, three interchangeable polycarbonate lenses that exceed the military’s ballistics impact ratings—clear, smoke and vermillion—a retention strap, microfiber pouch and reusable anti-fog cloth, all in a protective carrying case. Despite superior impact-resistant characteristics, the glasses weigh just more than 1 oz. and, like most Revision products, are prescription-ready via specially designed Rx lenses and a replacement nosepiece/lens carrier. Price: $125. Contact: Revision, 7 Corporate Drive, Essex Junction, VT 05452; (800) 383-6049; revisionmilitary.com.
