5.11 Tactical uses input from law enforcement, special operations and fire personnel to produce high quality eyewear that looks great and provides unexcelled safety. The styles in this assortment are unique to 5.11 and available nowhere else.
Our commitment to performance, style, comfort, and value is evident in every pair we produce which means that operators can have confidence in our eyewear as they meet the day's challenges. They exceed American ANSI Z87.1-2003 High Mass and High Velocity Impact Safety and Optical Standards and European EN 166 (F) Personal Eye Protection from High Speed Particles, and protect against 100% of damaging UVA and UVB radiation. In addition, each production lot of this tactical equipment is tested for compliance to the ANSI and EN requirements, standards that many brands don’t meet, and a continuing quality assurance process that most eye-wears are not subjected to. Lenses of Range Master eyewear are coated to resist scratching, cracking, and crazing (fine cracks on the surface of the lens). 2mm thick polycarbonate is die-cut to produce lenses without distortion from any angle and is ten times more impact resistant than glass or resin lenses.
Smoke lenses provide maximum glare reduction, won't distort colors, and are excellent in bright/glare conditions. Polarized lenses of this tactical equipment provide protection from annoying or intense reflected glare, especially around water, snow, windshields, and other highly reflective surfaces. (Note that polarized lenses can reduce visibility of some LCD displays). Frames are built to provide extremely high alternative bending strength, low density, and high resistance to chemical and UV damage. This makes them lightweight, durable, flexible, and virtually indestructible.
Every pair of Range Master’s eyewear includes a free zippered compression molded protective case with SlickStick™ web platform attachment point, a soft cloth cleaning bag, and a neck strap.
Soar Sunglasses with Standard and Polarized Lenses
Both versions have the same matte black finish and classic aviator frame styling with refined temples and wrapped lenses. Reduced size of the logo badge is the result of feedback from operators who want to stay under the radar when off duty. Polarized lenses provide additional protection from glare off water and other reflective surfaces, reducing eye fatigue and improving vision in these challenging environments. On polarized models, the left lens of this duty gear is marked POLARIZED at the lower left, near the frame.
CAVU HF Sunglasses with Three Sets of Standard Lenses
The CAVU HF (Half Frame) offers lightweight half frame styling with angular features and the convenience of having three sets of easily interchangeable lenses. Strategic placement of TPR (Thermo PlasticRubber) grip surfaces on the nose piece and temples keep sunglasses in place whether they are wet, sweaty, or dry. The CAVU HF has a gloss black frame and includes Smoke, Ballistic Orange, and Clear lenses. Instructions for the quick and easy removal and replacement of the lenses are included.
Raid Sunglasses of Range Master with Three Standard Lenses
The Raid offers lighter weight half frame styling with straight thin temples. The frame of this duty gear is finished in an attractive black matte. Three easily interchangeable lenses are included and are stored in a soft fabric bag. Lens colors include Smoke, Ballistic Orange, and Clear. Instructions for the removal and replacement of the lenses are included. Raid sunglasses are such a duty gear which carries a special feature of an adjustable padded nose piece which allows the wearer to adjust the fit to a variety of nose shapes and heights. The nose piece has comfortable injection molded TPR (thermoplastic rubber) pads to keep sunglasses in place, wet, sweaty, or dry. The temples also feature TPR grip pads for additional security and stability in all activities.
