Revision Sawfly® Small-Size Eyewear System Earns Spot on U.S. Army APEL List
Revision, a world leader in protective soldier solutions, has earned an unprecedented third spot on the U.S. Army’s Authorized Protective Eyewear List (APEL) for its Small-size Sawfly Military Eyewear System. In addition to the established Regular and Large sizes, the Sawfly Small provides best-in-class protection and performance for users with a smaller face geometry. The Sawfly Small features a tighter base curve lens that follows the contours of smaller proportions, providing greater lateral protection and excellent retention for its users.
“When it comes to personal protective equipment no one size fits all. In working directly with our end users, Revision determined the need to add a Small size to the Sawfly Military Eyewear line,” explains Dan Packard, Sr. VP U.S. Military Sales. “Personal protective eyewear needs to properly fit a wide range of head sizes in order to provide a comfortable, optically correct and ergonomically correct solution. The Sawfly’s three size offerings—Small, Regular and Large—ensures the best performance for our troops.”
Like its Regular and Large counterparts, the Sawfly Small features a lightweight frame, Comms-Compatible arms and interchangeable UV protective lenses. It’s also prescription capable with the Revision-developed, DoD approved Universal Rx Carrier.
Like all Sawfly eyewear products, the Sawfly Small provides superior ballistic protection, 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); flawless optics for distortion-free vision; and rugged durability to protect and perform through all the rigors of combat.
The APEL approved two-lens Sawfly U.S. Military Eyewear Kit in size Small has an MSRP of $89.99 and is proudly 100% made in the USA. The Sawfly Small is also available internationally to meet the protection needs of military forces worldwide.
