Revision Receives a Milestone Rapid Fielding Initiative Order for StingerHawk® Ballistic Eyewear
Revision first designed and developed StingerHawk ballistic spectacles in 2013 to complement the Company’s flagship line of protective eyewear—the Sawfly® spectacle system. In the years since, StingerHawk spectacles have proven distinctive in their own right, offering the same fragmentation protection—high-impact, interchangeable polycarbonate lenses that exceed military ballistic impact requirements for spectacles and goggles—in a low-profile, modernized style with a tighter curvature. Recently, the Stingerhawk line has gained widespread notoriety for its performance and look, particularly for the OcuMax® Plus anti-fog coating, an industry leading treatment that performs between 10 and 20 times better than other anti-fog solutions on the market. This coating also provides best-in-class scratch resistance, maintaining superior optical performance in harsh conditions.
StingerHawk spectacles have recently undergone a number of trials and assessments by experienced military and tactical personnel. Here’s some of the feedback that Revision has received from users demonstrating this eyewear’s growing reputation:
“I have two pairs of Revision's StingerHawk glasses and they are much better than any pair of Oakleys or EES glasses that I have owned…The antifog is no joke; I can't get them to fog up…These frames bend and are virtually non-destructible.”
Lt Col JC, Commander, 636th Brigade Support Battalion
"These are the best issued eyewear I have ever worn. I took them on a 10 mile road march and had no fogging issues; nothing comes close.”
CSM D, IN BDE CS
"StingerHawk's performance was outstanding (in all categories). You were right, the anti-fog lens performed as you described. The StingerHawks would not fog even under the harsh humidity we have here in Houston…Great EyePro system for tactical operators."
“Everybody I show them to is amazed at the durability of the lenses and frames and are blown away by the orange lens and the clarity it provides."
CSM, 759th MP BN, Fort Carson, CO
“The frames allow the glasses to sit closer to the face which improves coverage and is less troublesome when using rifles. The edges of the lenses sit closer to the face and extend farther around the eye offering better protection and less hindrance to shooting. Bonus, they look better!"
"These are the best eye protection I have ever owned.”
Robinson Township Police
"I had a couple of Soldiers try out the StingerHawk eyewear during tactical movement and range operations. All came back with the same verdict...Awesome! Not once did the eyewear fog up and it was comfortable without slipping down on their face as they maneuvered and engaged targets.”
CSM, Infantry Regiment
In fall 2016, Revision received the first Rapid Fielding Initiative (RFI) order for the StingerHawk spectacle line, supplying PEO (Program Executive Office) Soldiers with 5,000 2-Pack StingerHawk Spectacle Kits. En route to achieving this significant milestone, StingerHawk spectacles met the stringent, rigorous standards of this well-known, large-scale initiative.
“Revision’s StingerHawk spectacle system is poised to exceed the high expectations we’ve had for this product since day one,” said Jim Hester, Vice President, Optics, Revision Military. “This eyewear is precision manufactured, ultra-lightweight, and designed for maximum comfort. We’re very proud to get the word out about this product line, and excited to deliver this elite eyewear to PEO Soldiers as part of their RFI.”
