What are the dimensions of the Hellfly Ballistic Sunglasses?

Our Hellfly Ballistic Sunglasses are 135 mm wide (temple to temple). Each lens is approximately 65 mm wide and 35 mm tall. The nosepiece at its widest point is 25 mm and at the narrowest point it is 10 mm wide. The nosepiece on the Hellfly is adjustable, making it easier to fit on the bridge of your nose comfortably. If you do find that they don't fit, we would be happy to issue a 100% refund within 30 days of purchase.

How do I know what size Sawfly I need?

Our Sawfly Eyewear System comes in sizes small, regular and large. We recommend the size small to people who have a hat size between 6 1/2 and 6 7/8. The regular is recommended for people who have a hat size between 6 3/4 and 7 3/8 and the large is recommended for people with a hat size between 7 1/4 and 7 1/2. To view our Sawfly Sizing Guideline click here.

How do I know what size Sawfly I own?

Backed by a 3 year limited warranty, Revision products are built to last. Should however, you require replacements parts or accessories for your Sawfly Eyewear System, you will need to know what size you own. You can also determine the correct size by looking at the lens itself. Here's how:

Remove the nosepiece from the lens. Look at the area where the nosepiece fits.


On the regular size Sawfly there are two sets of notches - like a Christmas tree.


On the large size Sawfly there is only one set of notches.

There are also markings on each lens to determine if it’s a regular or small lens. The small Sawfly Lens has an “+SH” on the inside of the lens above the nosepiece. The regular has only “+S”.

Will a Sawfly regular size lens fit into a large Sawfly frame?

The Sawfly small and regular size lenses are only compatible with the regular size Sawfly frame. The size large lenses are only compatible with the size large frame.

What are the key attributes to the new Stingerhawk Spectacle?

Designed to complement a variety of Armed Forces' helmets, the Revision StingerHawk, an ultra-lightweight spectacle features a compact, low-profile design that delivers on comfort without compromising performance. It features a lightweight, sleek wrap-around style that says powerful and aggressive. The lenses are made of indestructible, optical grade polycarbonate that can be interchanged quickly for various light conditions and provide 100% protection from harmful UV-A, UV-B and UV-C rays. It is compatible with the Revision Rx Insert when used with the StingerHawk Rx nosepiece. The lenses exceed military ballistic impact requirements for spectacles and goggles.

Are polarized or photochromic lenses available in any other products besides the Sawfly Spectacle and Hellfly Ballistic Sunglasses?

At this time, the polarized and photochromic lenses are only available with the Sawfly Eyewear System and Hellfly Ballistic Sunglasses. For additional product lines and accessories, there are no immediate dates as to when these options may be available. Please check our website for the most up to date product offerings.

Is there anything I can do to prevent my lenses from fogging?

Revision lenses are manufactured with a coating that helps fight both fogging and scratching. However, another great tool is our Anti-Fog Cloths. The Revision Anti-Fog Cloths use advanced nanotechnology to help keep the lenses from fogging up. They are sold in a carton of 3 on our website and each cloth can be re-used up to 25 times.

What is the best way to clean my lenses?

Besides using our lens cleaner, we also recommend using a diluted solution of warm water and dish soap. Wash, rinse and let air dry.

batlskin

BACK TO TOP

With which helmets do the Batlskin components work?

The Batlskin Viper components have been designed to work with two specific helmets: 1) Standard issue ACH helmets and 2) Revision Viper A1 (Aramid) and Viper P2 (composite) helmets. The Batlskin Cobra components have been designed to fit the Revision Cobra P2 (composite) helmets.

Currently, the Batlskin components (front mounts, visors, and mandible guards) are available for all four size helmets, S, M, L, and XL.

Is the Batlskin Helmet Line available to the military? Law enforcement?

Yes. The Batlskin Helmet Line is available for military and law enforcement unit level buys. It is also available for individual military/law enforcement purchase through the Revision online store.

Is Batlskin Helmet Line available for civilian purchase?

At this time the Batlskin helmet accessories (front mount, visor, rails and mandible guards) are available for civilian purchase.

How much do the Batlskin helmets and accessories cost?

The manufacturer's suggested retail price (MSRP – USD) is below.

  • Standard Front Mount - $89.99
  • Visor with Attachment Arm - $279.99
  • Ballistic Mandible Guard - $529.99
  • Wire Mandible Guard - $179.99
  • 3-Piece Kit (above components) - $899.99

Does the Batlskin Head Protection System protect against blunt force, blast and ballistic trauma?

Yes. In order to help reduce brain injuries, the Batlskin Head Protection System has been designed not only to mitigate ballistic threats, but also to protect against blast waves, deflecting energy around the system. With regards to ballistics, the High-Threat Mandible Guard offers the same level of protection as the ACH helmet. As injury models include both ballistic and non-ballistic injuries, the Batlskin Head Protection System provides protection against blunt impacts to the face and jaw caused by collision with vehicle interiors and weapons.

What is the balance between fragmentation protection and weight?

Together, the Front Mount and Mandible Guard weigh only 1 pound and provide the same level of protection as the ACH helmet. This trade off of weight versus protection is commensurate with U.S. Army ballistic requirements and the operational reality of today's battlefield.

Is the Batlskin Head Protection System compatible with NVGs?

Yes. The Front Mount component of the Batlskin Head Protection System is compatible with standard NVG arms and either an NVG or a Ballistic Visor can be worn with the system. When NVGs are worn, we recommend using clear ballistic eye protection such as the Sawfly. Watch the Video

Are the ARC rails compatible with Revision helmets?

Revision has designed a rail-ready cut of the ACH-shaped helmet that is meant to work with current ARC rail systems. Revision has also designed a mini-rail system that allows for easy installation of cameras, flashlight, and other head borne accessories onto helmets. This system works on swivels, allowing the wearer to position accessories as desired. Please contact customer service for availability dates of these items.

How do you use weapons with the Batlskin Head Protection System? Can you achieve a proper cheek weld while sighting weapons? If not, how do you overcome this?

The Batlskin Head Protection System is intended to be used with current weapon optics. Most standard red dot, holographic sights and scopes are capable of being used with this system. For use during limited visibility operations, standard IR lasers can be utilized without a cheek-to-stock weld. As a contingency, the ballistic mandible is easily removed for use with traditional iron sights. Watch the Video

What kind of field-of-view is possible when wearing the Batlskin Head Protection System?

The optically correct ballistic Visor provides the same field-of-view as the ACH helmet and is manufactured to ensure distortion-free vision across the whole panoramic surface of the lens. When the Mandible Guard is in use, inferior (lower) field-of-view is comparable to that of ballistic goggles. If additional field-of-view is required, the Mandible Guard can be easily removed.

Can the M50 gas mask be worn with the Batlskin Head Protection System?

When wearing an ACH helmet fitted with Revision’s Front Mount, it is possible to wear the M50 CBRN mask with the Visor closed. The Mandible Guard is not designed to be worn with the CBRN mask in use. Watch the Video

When wearing the Batlskin Head Protection System, how easily can you communicate with others; are face-to-face conversations clear? Is communication with communications gear possible?

The Batlskin Head Protection System has been specifically designed for use with over-the-ear communication headsets. The Mandible Guard provides sufficient clearance for communication headsets, boom microphones as well as the headset earpiece. The Mandible Guard is on a pivot that simply lifts up, allowing easy verbal communication at long range.  Short range verbal communication is not affected by the Batlskin System. Watch the Video

How breathable is this system?

The bottom of the Mandible Guard is all open, unlike a gas mask, which allows for proper ventilation.  In severe environments, the Visor can be articulated to the ‘vent’ position to increase ventilation. Additionally, the Ballistic Visor has an anti-fog coating, similar to ballistic goggles issued for today's military.

How hot does the system get?

The Batlskin Head Protection System was designed with thermal mitigation in mind. Each component of the system is modular, allowing for wear in varying threat environments. The Visor's ‘up’ and ‘vent’ positions allow for the dissipation of heat. For extra ventilation, you can also wear the Visor without the Mandible Guard.

When wearing the Batlskin Head Protection System, will the visor fog?

The Ballistic Visor has an anti-fog coating on the inside of the lens, similar to ballistic goggles issued for today's military. In severe environments, the Visor can be articulated to the ‘vent’ position to further reduce fogging. In an emergency, the Ballistic Visor can be removed in seconds should an obscurant prevent the proper field-of-view. Watch the Video

How do you drink when wearing the Batlskin Head Protection System?

The Mandible Guard has been specifically designed for use with a hydration pack system. To accommodate water bottles, the Mandible Guard is on a pivot that simply lifts up while remaining attached to the helmet, allowing you to take a drink from traditional water bottles. Watch the Video

rx

BACK TO TOP

What is the difference between the Rx carrier and the StingerHawk Rx carrier?

The Rx carrier is compatible with the Sawfly and StingerHawk Eyewear Systems, and the Desert Locust, Asian Locust, and Bullet Ant Goggles. However, the StingerHawk Eyewear System requires a specific Rx carrier nosepiece. The StingerHawk Prescription Rx Carrier Kit includes a carrier and two Rx nosepieces (clear and black).

What are your prescription options, and what are their limitations?

The Rx Carrier can accommodate a single vision prescription that is +11 through -11, and is compatible with our Sawfly Spectacle, StingerHawk Spectacle, Desert Locust Goggle, Bullet Ant Goggle, and Wolfspider Goggle. The Hellfly Ballistic Sunglasses can accommodate a single vision prescription that is +1 through -4.

How do I fill my Rx Carrier with my prescription?

We suggest the following 3 options:

  1. Have your prescription filled by any licensed optician. To do this you will need to purchase one of the Rx Carrier Kits from one of our licensed dealers or directly through Revision, and take the frame to your optician for fulfillment.
  2. Have your prescription filled by Revision. Simply complete the Rx Fulfillment Form and fax it back to us. The $99.99 USD flat rate includes the prescription & Carrier. It takes approximately 2 weeks from the time we receive your order until it is shipped.
  3. If you are active military, please visit your on-base optometry clinic, where you can obtain a filled Rx Carrier through the SERTS Program. Active, Reserve, and National Guard members can also have their prescription filled for free through the Naval Ophthalmic Support & Training Activity (NOSTRA). http://www.med.navy.mil/sites/nostra/Pages/default.aspx

Are you able to fill a bifocal prescription?

We are unable to fill a bifocal lens as you would need to be onsite for the measurements that these prescriptions require. We are able to fill a single vision prescription only. You can certainly purchase the blank prescription carrier frame and bring it to your local optometrist where they can take your measurements and fill your bifocal lens prescription on site. The cost to purchase the blank prescription carrier would be $24.99 USD (+S/H). This can be purchased directly from our website, www.revisionmilitary.com, or by contacting customer service toll free at 1-800-383-6049.

What is the difference between the APEL Rx carrier and the 2011 Rx carrier?

The 2011 Rx carrier is optimized for a more universal fit. Both carriers are compatible with the Sawfly Eyewear System, StingerHawk Eyewear System, Desert Locust Goggle, Asian Locust Goggle and Bullet Ant Tactical Goggle. Additionally, the 2011 Rx Carrier does not require a “correction factor” when being filled by an optometrist.

Can I wear your eyewear over my eyeglasses?

We recommend that you do NOT wear eyeglasses under your Revision Eyepro. We go to great lengths to ensure the ballistic capabilities of our eyewear. Wearing regular eyeglasses under your Revision eyewear puts your safety at risk. Because, while Revision frames and lenses are able to withstand ballistic impact, your regular eyeglasses very probably cannot, and could shatter, potentially causing serious eye injury, blindness or even death.   Please see the information above regarding our Revision prescription options.

Does the military or law enforcement discount apply to prescriptions?

We do offer a discounted price on our Rx carriers to military and law enforcement personnel. The discounted price is $49.99 USD (+$9.95 S&H).  We also offer discounted prices on the Hellfly prescriptions, but those vary depending on which lens/frame combination you purchase. When filling out the Rx order form, please make a note anywhere on the form that you would like to take advantage of the military/LE discount and we will be sure to apply it to your order.

Does the $99.99 cost to fill the carrier include the carrier itself or is that additional?

The $99.99 USD cost includes the prescription lenses as well as the Rx carrier vision correction system itself. You will receive your order with the lenses already in the carrier.
