On Target Review: Crossbow and Rollbar Shooting Glasses from ESS

Rollbar

The On Target staff was extremely pleased to try out the Rollbar, one of the newest offerings from ESS.  I am loathe to use the term “tacticool” to describe it because of the obvious inferences. What I will say is that these shades epitomize tactical chic. Americans have never matched the industrial design savoir-faire  of the Italians but I’ll wager somebody from Milano must of have spent time in Ketchum, Idaho on these glasses.

Like the Crossbow, these are really light.

Aside from having all the requisite ballistic and UV protection standards, they also allow one to easily swap out lenses. On either side of temple frame, right at the end piece where the temple arm hinges, is a locking lever called an end-gate. The end-gate can be opened when you bend the arm inward and it allows you to remove the lens. Once you replace, and snug the lens inside the grooves in the eye piece, just move the temple arm back out and it will close the gate shut.

Very slick indeed.

WHAT OTHERS HAVE TO SAY

"Dear ESS, On deployment in 2012, my vehicle was struck with an IED while performing route clearance in Afghanistan. The IED flipped my vehicle, knocking me unconscious and launching my rifle into my face. My cheek, nose, and eye socket were shattered from the impact, but my eye was saved from the ESS Crossbow I was wearing. When I put a pair of Crossbows back on, you can clearly see where I would have lost my eye if I wasn't wearing them." SSG Pronzati
