Being on the range with the sun just above the target is enough to irritate any shooter. What's worse, most sunglasses on the market won't offer the kind of protection necessary for the shooting sports. However, Bollé has a solution in its Ranger ballistic-protection glasses.
The Bollé Ranger ballistic sunglasses are built using a flexible nylon frame and a polycarbonate lens that is compliant with STANAG regulations for ballistic protection. The glasses also features a non-slip bridge and temples that ensure the protective lenses stay where they're needed on a shooter's face.
Other features of the new glasses include protection on the sides of the glasses to ensure that debris does not enter in behind the ballistic lenses. The lenses also feature special coatings to prevent scratches and fog build-up. The glasses also provide users with an EN 172 protection rating against UV rays, ensuring protection against 99.99 percent of ultra-violet radiation.
The Bollé Ranger ballistic sunglasses are available in smoke, red-flashed and polarized lens colors. The suggested retail price on these protective lenses is $64.
