What protective standards does Revision eyewear meet?
Revision’s spectacles and goggles are tested to a number of international protective standards: principally, ANSI Z80; ANSI Z87.1-2010; MIL-PRF-32432, clause 126.96.36.199.4; MIL-PRF-32432, clause 188.8.131.52.5, and EN166. Each has its own set of controlled tests that designate the level of protection users can expect when using the eyewear in the field. All of Revision’s spectacles and goggles meet ANSI Z87.1-2010. This standard covers a wider range of protective eyewear, including eyewear used for everyday handywork and construction, sunglasses with protective lenses, and eyewear used in certain military and tactical situations. The MIL-PRF standards are set by the U.S. military; these certifies eyewear for use in the harsh and extreme conditions of the battlefield. Therefore, MIL-PRF standards are more stringent. MIL-PRF also draws a distinction between protective spectacles and protective goggles.
Typically, protective goggles offer greater protection than spectacles, however, Revision’s Sawfly spectacle system and StingerHawk system meet or exceed both MIL-PRF-32432, clause 184.108.40.206.4 for spectacles and MIL-PRF-32432, clause 220.127.116.11.5. for goggles. Additionally, for eyewear used outside the U.S., Revision tests against EN 166 to capture testing measures not covered by U.S. testing standards but required in other regions of the world. Specific protection level information can be found on the specs sheet for each eyewear product on Revision’s site.
What is APEL?
The Authorized Protective Eyewear List (APEL) is an exclusive Qualified Products List (QPL) of manufacturers who have had their products examined and tested and who have satisfied all applicable qualification requirements; specifically, with regard to APEL, all the listed eyewear meets or exceeds Army standards for ballistic protection. Revision’s Desert Locust, Bullet Ant, Wolfspider, and Exoshield goggles, as well as StingerHawk and Sawfly spectacles, are on the listed on APEL.
What is APEL UPLC?
The Universal Prescription Lens Carrier (UPLC) list is a subset of the APEL list. UPLC lenses offer rims that hold prescription lenses in the protective eyewear. Revision’s Bullet Ant, Wolfspider, and Desert Locust goggles, as well as Sawfly and StingerHawk spectacles are all APEL UPLC compatible.
Do you sell Desert Locust Thermal Lenses?
We do not currently sell thermal lenses for the Desert Locust Goggle System. Please contact Customer Support if you have additional questions about Desert Locust Lenses or thermal lenses.
How does the balaclava connect to the SnowHawk Cold Weather Goggle?
The SnowHawk Cold Weather Goggle utilizes Anon’s proprietary MFI Technology (Magnetic Facemask Integration). The four magnetic connection points make sealing your balaclava to your goggles a snap, and provides a long-lasting connection. The reinforced perforated O2 vents keep you fully covered and fog-free.
How do I know if the balaclava is magnetically attached to the goggle?
When attaching the magnetic strip of the balaclava to the bottom of the goggle frame, an audible click can be heard once the magnets have engaged.
How do I remove the MFI Carrier from the MFI Balaclava so I can wash it?
If you look carefully at the inside of the mask, you will see two small holes on each side that you can carefully slide the carrier out of. We recommend that you machine wash in cold water using Permanent Press Cycle or hand wash using a mild detergent that does not contain optical brighteners or fabric softeners and rinse completely. Do not use chlorine bleach. Hang to dry.
Can I purchase the SnowHawk balaclava separately?
Yes, the SnowHawk balaclava with Magnetic Facemask Integration can be purchased on its own by contacting customer support to place an order.
Are there different types of lenses for low-light light?
We offer a variety of lens tints for all of our eyewear products. Most of our eyewear systems have lens options that are specifically designed for low-light conditions, specifically, yellow high-contract lenses and vermillion high-contrast lenses.
What is the maximum range in temperature that the SnowHawk Cold Weather Goggle System can sustain?
We test our products per the military standard (MIL-PRF-32432(GL)) which requires no loss of function after exposure at -60F and 160F.
Does the balaclava come in different colors/different camouflage?
The balaclava standard offering is in black and white. Revision can investigate different colors/camouflage should the quantity warrant it. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Can I purchase the fan separately for my Desert Locust Goggles?
The Desert Locust Fan Goggle is sold as a complete system. The fan cannot be purchased separately as an add-on to the Desert Locust Goggle.
Does Revision eyewear have UV protection?
Yes. All of Revision’s spectacles and goggles have 100% UV-A, UV-B, and UV-C protection.
