Essex Junction, Vermont (December 16, 2021) – Revision Military, world leader in ballistic and laser protective eyewear systems, announces improved fit and performance for SnowHawk Cold Weather Goggle and Balaclava systems. Improvements include migrating from a single size balaclava to two sizes - better accommodating a wide range of end users while ensuring secure and comfortable fit - and also expanding the available balaclava line to include additional U.S. Berry compliant and Aclima® wool options.
“SnowHawk continues to be a unique product in the military and tactical market, and we’re excited to evolve the product line and it’s performance,” said Revision CEO Amy Coyne. “Revision recognizes the growing need for cold weather equipment designed not only to protect in extreme climates and conditions, but also optimize the performance of end-users. Revision is continuing to expand our capabilities for protective eyewear systems thoughtfully tailored to specific environments.”
Cold climate operations have become an essential tactical focus for militaries around the world, with many dedicating more resources and training to maneuvers in the Arctic and other cold weather regions. This shift has generated a growing demand for gear that can withstand harsh conditions and function in extreme environments. Extensive time, attention, and resources were dedicated to ensuring the breathability of this cold weather system: Mesh over the mouth and nose directs breath away from the goggle; the dual-pane thermal gasket lens creates an insulated barrier; built-in top and lateral forced-air vents provide constant airflow; and, Revision’s leading OcuMax© Plus coating is applied on the inside of the lens to prevent fogging, plus a hard-coat is applied to the outside of the lens to resist scratching. The SnowHawk system’s balaclava features Anon’s Magnetic Facemask Integration (MFI®) technology to seamlessly integrate the goggle and balaclava, ensuring stabilization and seal, with no skin exposed. The system achieves total face and head coverage, but is also intuitively designed for ease of use and swift removal when necessary.
Revision developed this goggle system in collaboration with Anon Optics, a leader in goggle design for snow sports and a brand owned by Burton Snowboards, one of the world’s premier snowsports companies. The SnowHawk Cold Weather System is the first-ever fully integrated ballistic goggle and balaclava system offering complete face coverage, superior anti-fog performance, and ballistic protection.
Select SnowHawk google kits are on the U.S. Army Authorized Protective Eyewear List (APEL), and multiple goggle and balaclava combinations have National Stock Numbers (NSNs). Visit revisionmilitary.com for more information.
