If you're seeing troops from the Bundeswehr in Afghanistan sporting some sick shades, they're probably going to be made by Revision.
That's because the Vermont-based ballistic eyewear company just announced they've won a contract with the German armed forces to be an exclusive supplier of ballistic glasses for that country's army, navy and air force.
In pursuit of this business Revision developed a Germany-specific version of their flagship product, the Sawfly Military Eyewear System. For it, a new lens shape was designed and two specialty lens tints were developed: one for specific-wavelength laser eye protection and the second for high altitude mountain operations. The 256,000 standard issue kits, available in three sizes – small, medium and large, will include clear, solar and vermillion lenses.It's a big win for the US company and demonstrates their growing share of the now international tactical eyewear market.
