Just wanted to let you know that I have a very good friend who started the [MFF Parachutist Basic Course YPGAZ] on Monday; when he asked me if I had any equipment recommendations for him to take to the course, I handed him my ExoShields. Since we last spoke, I have held a couple of Polaris MRZR driver training courses (I am a Master Driver/Trainer for our unit), and the ExoShields have performed flawlessly! Again, no fogging, and to this day they are scratch-free.

I have been wearing the ExoShields during battalion jump operations and think they are great. Dirt and wind stayed out and the fog shielding is excellent. I also appreciate the simplicity of the design, especially the lack of ridges for dirt to get stuck in and the simple retaining strap.
Overall, the Exoshield Extreme Low-Profile Eyewear functioned exceptionally well. The wide retention band is secure and comfortable, while the wind resistance easily stood up to rotor wash and fixed wing cruising speeds for airborne insertions. As a result, I noticed an instant increase in situational awareness, which is a significant advantage in non-permissive environments where I need to be worried about things. These are my go-to eyepro for rotary and fixed wing operations.
I used the Revision Exoshield Extreme Low-Profile Eyewear for a few days at AT. The field of view was superb. I had no obstructions whatsoever. Although it took two hands to put the eyepro on, the fit and feel was very comfortable. I received a great deal of complement on the style of the glasses.

I have been part of the United States Army for almost 11 years. I have had the opportunity to use and try many different forms of eye protection over the years. With the new headsets in the vehicles, wearing a normal type of eye protection with arms on it tends to cause headaches and pressure on my temples. Using full sized goggles with an elastic band is too bulky and limits my field of vision; I don't like either of those options. I did some searching to find some way around this problem and landed my solution with Revision. The Revision Exoshield eye protection has the best of both worlds: a low profile lens that fits to your face and allows air to flow to prevent fogging up and an elastic, adjustable band to keep pressure off the temples and a full seal of the headsets over the ears. The hook and latch straps allow easy removal and putting on of the eye protection. After several missions using the Exoshields, I experienced no headaches or any uncomfortable effects. I was wearing them when our vehicle was struck by an IED. I was the only person wearing the Exoshields with the headsets. After the explosion everyone in my truck crew was experiencing ringing of the ears and headaches. My eye protection fit so well that my headset was fully sealed; and even though the IED detonated 3 meters from me, I didn't even realize we had been hit from the sound. The headset sealed so well, the only way I knew we had been hit was from the obvious damage from it. I would recommend the Exoshields to anyone in the military or otherwise. They work and they exceed military standards for goggles and regular protective eye glasses.
During free-fall the Exoshield Extreme Low-Profile Eyewear make it easy to move your head, stay stable and not fight the eyewear like you do with other products. Used during SL, the Jumpaster Teams love them, especially now, because they keep the cold air out of your eyes, which allows you to spot. All in all, a stable product that really promotes safety of the air, eye protection, and allows jumpers to be safe as well as concentrate on the jump and not fighting with the eyewear.
I would highly recommend the Exoshield Extreme Low-Profile Eyewear for use with NVGs. They are amazing! Very comfortable and highly recommend!! Revision Exoshield leads the way! Wooooah!!!!
