These Polarized replacement lenses for the Crossbow™ eyeshield are built from extra-thick, 2.4mm polycarbonate.
The Crossbow's DedBolt™ Lens Lock system allows for rapid lens interchange. The ToughZone™ lenses resist scratching, and ESSOPTICS™ provide distortion-free clarity.
Crossbow™ replacement lenses are compatible with both Crossbow Tri-Tech Fit™ frames (for normal use) and Crossbow Suppressor™ frames (for use with ear cup hearing protection and communications gear).
Note: ESS Polarized Crossbow™ lenses meet ANSI Z87.1, but not U.S. Mil Spec 31013.
As a Rifle Platoon Sergeant in Southern Afghanistan, I harped on wearing all Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) while on patrol. My entire platoon was equipped with one of your latest products: the ESS Crossbow. I had no idea this emphasis on PPE would save my vision, and the vision of several of my Soldiers. On 07 July 2012, while conducting dismounted offensive operations my platoon took several casualties as a result of an IED blast. My Weapons Squad Leader received shrapnel wounds to his face, in all areas except those protected by his ESS glasses. Undoubtedly his vision was saved by your clearly superior product. Additionally, on 07 October 2012 I was walking in the lead of our formation, clearing our route to our objective. While kneeling and interrogating a possible IED location, the IED was triggered, and sent the majority of the blast towards my torso and head. Despite the relative proximity to the blast I only received minor facial wounds. I owe my eyesight to your product, as the ESS Crossbows I wore took the majority of sand, shrapnel, and debris. Thank you for protecting my platoon and I, and all other warfighters serving our country.
