5.11 Tactical Eyewear

5.11 Tactical Sunglasses

5.11 Tactical uses input from law enforcement, special operations and fire personnel to produce high quality eyewear that looks great and provides top safety. The styles in this assortment are unique to 5.11 Tactical and available nowhere else.

5.11 Tactical’s commitment to performance, style, comfort, and value is evident in every pair they produce which means that operators can have confidence in their 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 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 eyewear is not subjected to. 5.11 Tactical’s lenses 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 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 5.11 Tactical eyewear includes a free zippered compression molded protective case with SlickStick™ web platform attachment point, a soft cloth cleaning bag, and a neck strap.
