Essex Junction, VT –-(Ammoland.com)- Revision, leading developer of protective eyewear for militaries worldwide, introduces the Tan 499 Desert Locust Goggle Kit with enhanced camouflage for the warfighter.
The new color configuration is designed to better integrate with the U.S. MultiCam uniforms currently in service in Afghanistan.
The new kit features a Tan 499 frame and strap with MultiCam anti-reflective sleeve and carrying case. The Desert Locust Goggle is the first and only MultiCam eyewear on the U.S. Army Authorized Protective Eyewear List (APEL).
“Revision is committed to meeting the specific needs of soldiers through innovative, custom eyewear solutions,” says Dan Packard, Senior Vice President of Military Sales for Revision. “That’s why we’re proud to deliver the Tan 499 Desert Locust Goggle Kit. This new kit has all the same ballistic features of the original Desert Locust Goggle, but with the added benefit of better camouflage – something that soldiers in today’s hostile environments require and deserve.”
The Tan 499 Desert Locust Goggle combines the best ballistic protection and widest field-of-view with optimal fit and superior camouflage making this the ultimate goggle for extended use. Its high-performance OcuMax coated lenses protect against fogging and scratching while the filtered ventilated frame keeps sand, wind and dust at bay.
The goggle exceeds ANSI Z87.1-2010 and military ballistic impact requirements (MIL-DTL-43511D, clause 3.5.10); ensures flawless optics for distortion-free vision; and provides rugged durability to protect and perform through all the rigors of combat.
