Military Sunglasses are designed to save your eyes and possibly your life in extreme environments. The potential for high velocity impacts from flying debris and shrapnel requires the use of Military Sunglasses that meet or exceed Military Ballistic Standards for eyewear. Several brands such as ESS, Oakley, Revision, Smith Optics Elite and Wiley-X produce excellent Military Sunglasses that are specifically designed to withstand the higher velocity threats Military and Law Enforcement personnel are exposed to.
The eyewear listed in this section meets or exceed the U.S. Military Ballistic Standard MIL-PRF-31013. This standard subjects the eyewear to impacts of four times the velocity (650 fps +/- 10 fps) of the industrial ANSI Z87.1-2010 standard! Several models are available with prescription inserts.
