The ESS Crossbow Suppressor™ is the first spectacle frame designed for use with ear cup hearing protection and communications devices. Featuring Z-Bend™ Geometry, the frame's ultra-thin temple arms help keep noise out by minimizing the effect on the padded seal of ear cups. The slim temples eliminate the hot spots and pressure points that commonly occur when normal eyewear is worn under ear cups:

“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!”
