When you try on the Crossbow®, you'll discover it's unlike any other ballistic eyeshield. Experience the Tri-Tech Fit™ frame that achieves an amazing universal fit with max comfort and zero pressure points. Then notice the lenses. They won't fog. That's thanks to groundbreaking ClearZone™ FlowCoat technology, engineered to eliminate fog inside and prevent scratches outside.
As you stare down your objective through distortion-free ESSOPTICS™, you'll see just how optically precise vision can be. When you're ready to switch tints, the innovative DedBolt™ Lens Lock pivots up for easy release, then clamps down for rock solid retention under impact.
It's from ESS, so of course the Crossbow is compliant with U.S. Federal OSHA, ANSI Z87.1+, CE EN 166 and U.S. MIL-PRF-31013. Form, Fit, Function...Perfected. Get your hands on a Crossbow and see for yourself.

“I am overseas in OEF, but wanted to share with you my positive experience with your new Crossbow eyeshields. I have tested these in 111 deg temperatures in the deserts of Jordan to below freezing (at night) in the mountains of Afghanistan. The Crossbows performed even better than expected-they are hands down the best eye pro I've worn since being assigned to special operations. The lenses provide a lot of coverage and give you full peripheral use. They are lightweight and comfortable to wear, even under Peltors. The optics are just as great in the morning twilight as they are at high noon. Most guys end up taking off their eye pro halfway through a mission because of fogging, but the Crossbows held up like a champ. I have never managed to fog up the lenses, which is something ESS should be proud of, since I have fogged all other eyewear that I have ever tried. Even when dropping down a pair of NVG's after working up a sweat, fogging was not a problem at all. You guys have really hit the mark with these. The Crossbows are the only eye pro I can wear anymore. Thank you for making such a great product!”
