First Look: Bushnell Performance Eyewear Collection

posted on August 24, 2021

Bushnell is teaming up with Mirage Occhiali, one of the leading sunglass design and manufacturing houses in Italy, in order to produce their new Performance Eyewear Collection. This new line offers outdoor enthusiasts high quality eyewear that provides enhanced clarity and maximum comfort along with a distinct, ergonomic design to elevate your next outdoor experience.

Bushnell is known for making well built sporting optics, and Mirage brings their design originality, industrial expertise and creativity to the new Bushnell collection. This mutually beneficial partnership between the two brands allows Bushnell to work with Mirage in order to expand into the Performance Eyewear sector, using the capabilities of both companies to create high-quality eyewear with the highest quality of optics.

Bushnell Performance Eyewear helps outdoorsmen perform at the highest caliber for sports such as hunting, shooting, and fishing. The new collection was built to help hunters, hikers, competitive shooters and other people who enjoy the outdoors see things in a whole new way. Styles range from six to eight different base shields, and the collection includes a wide range of optic technologies such as blue light filtration and MIR polycarbonate lenses to polarization and photochromic lenses.

With a wide variety of lens hues from brown/gold, yellow/rose and grey/silver to blue/green, the Bushnell collection has been designed to protect wearers from the sun, water, wind, and debris while keeping them safe from impacts and temperatures. Bushnell Performance Eyewear gives you optimal peripheral vision with zero interference while still remaining durable and easy to use. Chemical and solvent resistant, the eyewear is lightweight and highly flexible for all day long usage.

The sunglasses have megol rubber temple end pieces, tips and nose pads and moisture-absorbing properties to allow for a no-slip-grip with a no-wear feel. This setup helps prevent your glasses from getting in the way, even in the most intense and in high sweat activities. MSRPs for the items in the Bushnell Performance Eyewear Collection start at $99, and for  more information, please visit

For me, one of the many bonuses of this gunwriter business has been the opportunity to meet and become friends with a number of the firearm enthusiasts of an earlier generation; legendary figures such as Frank Hamer Jr., Bill Jordan, Bill Toney, Col Walter Walsh and the subject of this column: COL Rex Applegate.
