The staff here at Zero One Airsoft love our eyes. We spend most of our time gazing longingly at RIF’s or looking through scopes at unsuspecting players who think they’re nigh on undetectable whilst they crush any and all vegetation in a 10 meter radius. We also pride ourselves on being able to advise players on what products offer the best protection, not just during skirmishes but any manner of sporting or potentially dangerous past times. When the long-standing and award winning company Blueye released eyewear for tactical and military markets, we knew we had to get in on the action.
Blueye was formed in 1995 in Australia, originally to improve & manufacture goggles for horse racing jockeys whose eye protection was hideously outdated. Shortly thereafter, Blueye used their design know-how and manufacturing prowess to produce sunglasses and they even picked up a few industry awards along the way. In 2013, after 4 years of development, the Blueye Tactical Division released their first specific purpose ballistic eyewear range to military personnel the world over. Blueye Tactical eyewear is highly regarded by Private Military Contractors and military personnel whose standard issue eyewear has proven to be unsuitable for the rigours of modern day combat.
What makes Blueye Tactical so good? Their products have exceeded all ballistic tests for the US civilian standard, the US military standard and the European standard. They offer a range of eyewear protection to meet the demands of any tactical requirement. One set of eyewear cannot possibly be suitable for all situations, therefore Blueye have designed eyewear for Land Ops, Air Ops, Water Ops and Special Ops. With this all encompassing range of elite eyewear, player safety will never be compromised.
Blueye attended the National Airsoft Event in 2016 to meet Zero One Airsoft and to introduce their military grade eyewear to the airsoft community. The feedback we received was overwhelmingly positive, many players commenting on the awesome style, extreme comfort and high performance of Blueye’s tactical eyewear. Those that were lucky enough to purchase a pair at the event will testify that Blueye Tactical products offer outstanding performance and protection. Therefore, we are very proud to be the first to bring their products to the airsoft market.
The Granite Mission goggles have been specifically designed to provide superior vision whilst on land operations. They incorporate many great features such as UVA protection, flame resistance and NVG compatibility. The outside and inside of the lenses have been treated with an anti fogging coating. The large elasticated strap holds the goggles perfectly in place and the padding around the lens is extremely comfortable. As a result, they offer many hours of continuous use without fatiguing the user.
