ESS Cross Series

I was able to spend a few minutes with Lindy from ESS  before heading out to the range at the TTPOA Conference. She took a few minutes to go over their "Cross Series", a multi-lens kit with the Crossbow and Crossbow Suppressor. I have not personally done much with this particular breed of ESS goggle other than throw them on the counter in a steam-filled bathroom after a shower to check on the anti-fog properties (which work surprisingly well). I did wear them just a short period of time (they were comfortable, but I didn't have the chance to wear them under a helmet or on the range) however it was by no means long enough to provide a proper review.

That said, I like ESS products (never cared much for the Wiley-X gear I've worn myself) and I think these have a lot of potential. I've been wearing a pair of the ESS black CDIs ever since my previous pair of sunglasses suffered a grisly fate at the hands of my 4-year old nephew Mongo. (That was a pair of 5.11 Climbs, in the interest of full disclosure, and I was very happy with how they held up, and for how long). When I lose these black CDIs (and those of you who know me know that I WILL lose them, and soon) I'll be trying a pair of their Copper 5Bs and will let you know how they are.
