Magpul catches eyes with new eyewear line (VIDEO)

Magpul, in an effort to outdo all the summer slackers, has announced even more products entering its accessories lineup. This time the accessory powerhouse is introducing an all new eyewear line.

Boasting Magpul worthy names like Terrain, Summit and Explorer the series is designed to give consumers robust, ballistic rated eyewear designed for real world activities. Utilizing a TR90NZZ design, the strongest thermoplastic material for eyewear, the eyewear is impact resistant and flexible while also providing a lightweight construction.

The glasses boast oleophobic treated lenses that protect from water, sweat or chemical degradation. The design is rounded out by an eight-base wrap paired with an over-molded anti-slip rubber nose and temple pads which prevent the glasses from slipping while in use.

“We’ve created lenses that meet demanding standards for resolution, clarity and contrast to support a whole range of outdoor activities, ensuring they stay functional when you need them most,” Magpul said in a statement. “Our lens and mirror selections are designed to enhance your visual perception across a variety of changing environments and light conditions, and we offer polarized options throughout our eyewear line to decrease glare while you’re outdoors.”

The Terrain is best suited for medium to large faces while the Summit pairs with small to medium faces. The Explorer is the company’s casual design, designed for users who want the protection of ballistic impact protection but don’t wish to sacrifice style in doing so. All three glasses feature three frame colors for users to choose — black, gray or tortoise — in addition to a range of colored, polarized and non-polarized lenses.

Magpul says a limited number of the eyewear will go on sale on the site immediately with the full lineup available in stores and online in the coming weeks. The Magpul Explorer glass retail for $139 while the Terrain and Summit offer a price tag of $149.
