Military Times ESS Crossbow Suppressor Sneak Peak

"Finally — a set of eyepro that doesn’t render your over-the-ear hearing protection useless. ESS is about to release a modified version of the Crossbow eyeshield frame called the Suppressor. The Crossbow Suppressor won’t replace the Crossbow, but will be sold alone and along with it in a tactical kit. The difference between the CB and the CBS is the temple arms. The CBS arms are thinner, more flexible, shorter and have a dogleg that makes the arm ride up against your sideburns, resulting in a blessedly small profile to pass under your bang-bang earmuffs.

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
