Protect your eyes well,… you only have one pair!
Eye protection is by far the most important thing. Not only in airsoft. Charge my if I´m wrong! One brand I personally trust is WILEY X. Over the years, I tryed out different brands too but these have become my favorite once. Why? They just fit me well and I feel very compfortable with them.
The ROGUE COMM is my thrid model from the WILEY X family I came across from our partner Military 1st and here´s a quick write-up for you about it´s features and benifts.
You can buy this model in three different set-ups regarding the glasses included in the package & you can choose from a Black or a TAN Frame. The all happy one means Grey/Clear/Light Rust, the Grey/Clear and the Clear one as you personal prefer it the most or how much money you want to spend on it. The Glases can be easiely removed from the frame in seconds and so ist the nose piece too. It makes it quiet easy to change it in the field so you can adjust the glases to the daylight and or the weather if it changes very quick to stay focused on the job. The ROGUE is also compatible with WILEY-X’s Prescription Lens Carrier (PTX) if you´re in the need of this.
The nose piece and the cutting of the glases are very wide to fit all nose sizes what makes this model a one size fits all one. Great benefit in my opinion. Also, the unique wraparound fit from the classic half frame design provides a very good protection even if you got shot from the 180° position. Most „sun glasses style“ lenses can´t provide you that much protection.
Editors Note: I have seen a lot of players over the years got shot into the eye from the angle named above! Most happend during CQB events where you take fire from almost all angles and close distances. Most of them were lucky with less to no injuries afterwards but as the saying goes ~ “hope is not a good plan“! Protect your eyes well guys!
