Based on soldier trials, technical compliance and best value pricing, Revision Eyewear
, leading developer of protective eyewear for militaries worldwide, has secured a UK Ministry of Defence
contract for Protective Combat Eyewear. Following tender evaluation and user trials, Revision was selected for providing the best value and for being the most technically compliant bidder. The estimated contract value is £3.4 million to provide the UK MoD with Revision’s Sawfly®
Military Eyewear System and Bullet Ant®
The Revision Sawfly Military Eyewear System is an all-purpose spectacle designed to provide protection on a 24-hour, all-weather continuum. Maximizing fit, function and comfort, the Sawfly Military Eyewear System exceeds the rigorous optical and ballistic testing standards in use today; it is the most widely used military spectacle in service.
The Bullet Ant Goggle System provides powerful ballistic protection against medium-energy fragmentation while protecting against the environment: sand, wind and dust. The goggle system features interchangeable OcuMax® coated lenses for high-performance anti-fog and anti-scratch capabilities and provides flawless optics for unprecedented visual clarity. The Bullet Ant Goggle also exceeds the rigorous testing standards in use today.
Both products are prescription capable with a single insert-the Revision Rx Carrier.
The Combat Protective Eyewear Tender (number DC4/4055) is the UK MoD’s first competition for protective eyewear since 2005. In addition to securing this procurement, Revision is the major supplier of protective eyewear for numerous NATO countries including the USA, Canada, Germany, the Netherlands, Denmark and Belgium; Revision also fulfills the protective eyewear needs of 40 other countries around the world.
Revision, leading developer of protective eyewear for military and law enforcement forces worldwide, introduces the completely redesigned Sawfly Military Eyewear System. The new Sawfly Eyewear features a redesigned frame, Comms Compatible arms, new Comfort Nosepiece, an extended lens and new retention system. The result is a superior eye protection product that provides optimal comfort, fit and gear compatibility without compromising ballistic performance, optics or durability.
The system’s multiple changes provide significant end-user gains; the Sawfly Eyewear’s redesigned frame not only features an aggressive new look but it facilitates lens changing with the new quick-change lens system. New Comms Compatible arms are leaner and longer for the utmost comfort, equipment compatibility and retention; their overmolded undercarriage provides shock absorption and grip while their thinner profile ensures that hearing protection works as designed. The eyewear’s new Comfort Nosepiece has been reengineered for enhanced comfort, retention and durability; it features a softer durometer nosepad which provides added grip and cushioning. The Sawfly’s new extended lens provides greater lateral lens coverage for full side-impact protection-without compromising airflow and anti-fog performance. Finally, the system’s new Secure-Snap retention band clips firmly into the frame, keeping eyewear in place, even during high activity missions.
Like its predecessor, the new Sawfly Military Eyewear System provides the same superior ballistics, exceeding ANSI Z87.1-2010 and military ballistic impact requirements MIL-PRF-31013, clause 22.214.171.124 and MIL-DTL-43511D, clause 3.5.10; the same flawless optics for distortion-free vision; and the same rugged durability to protect and perform through all the rigors of combat.
The two-lens Sawfly U.S. Military Eyewear System makes its debut at the 2010 AUSA Annual Meeting with a retail price tag of $89.99 MSRP-the same best-value price as the previous model. The three-lens Sawfly Eyewear Deluxe Kit retails for $119.99 MSRP, also with no price increase. Available December 1, 2010.
