Brands:Brand: Smith Optics Elite
The interchangeable Rx system is designed for both the Outside the Wire (OTW) goggle and Aegis eyeshield. A single, integrated Rx carrier can be used in either product. The Smith Elite Rx carrier is engineered to accommodate corrections up to +/- 11 diopters. The kit comes with everything you will need to bring Rx into your OTW goggle or Aegis eyeshield.
I have used it for a while now, mainly at the range. The first set I got actually was missing a piece, I did not know that until I lost the attachment piece, and contacted Smith Optics to purchase a replacement part. They were extremely prompt in response and helpful. They sent me a new set for free, which I did not expect.
I'm giving this a three-star rating for the reason that the attachment devices (nose-piece and clip-on attachment device) do not stay in place when used during extreme movement (combat use). I have repeated incidences where the eye glasses have popped-off the retaining clip that attaches to the nose piece. This is quite a problem if the user is in a real combat situation (military). The way to fix this problem is to glue the glasses to the retaining clip. Once this is done the problem is solved and the glasses can be used with the eye shield with no problems. I do highly recommend this product for those of you who use the Smith Optics ballistic eye shields. I know of no other solution, or product, that will allow a person to incorporate prescription glasses into the ballistic eye shield.
These work as advertised. However you can't really tell from pictures what it'll fit like in real life. The nose piece juts out from the bridge of your nose more than standard glasses to accommodate both the Rx lenses and the eye shield. This means the entire eye pro unit will stick out from your face by that much. As long as you can live with that they work great. The Aegis Echo is an awesome piece of kit, very thick polycarbonate shield looks like it'll withstand a tank shell, but because of the offset of the Rx nose piece the top of the eye pros has a moderate gap at my brow. Definitely wear a baseball cap to keep hot brass out!
* once received the product the material feels strong and durable
The product pictured is not what I received. I am not quite sure what happened but this is unusable with the otw turbo fan googles. Customer service however was quick to help and will be looking into the problem.
Unusable. Save your money and buy something else. The nose piece and the eyepiece won't stay on so the eyepiece will come loose everytime you move. Can't use it at all. Wish I could return this. Stay away.
Fits well with my prescription lenses.. Fits comfortably and I can wear them all day.. Enjoying them..
They need to make the plastic out of a clear material or opaque. The black is distracting.
