First Look: Magpul Rift, Pivot, and Ascent Eyewear

Magpul recently introduced three new eyewear offerings for shooters, including the Rift, Pivot, and Ascent models.

The Ascent comes in polarized and non-polarized options and is an ideal high-performance eye protection for all-day comfort. The Pivot is a more casual design based of an earlier Explorer model, and it merges performance with style that fits men with medium to small faces. Finally, the Rift eyewear was developed for use at work, home, or the range, and overall versatility.
