3M Announces Peltor SecureFit Protective Eyewear 600 Tactical Series

Thursday, July 6th, 2017

3M Company, the Original Equipment Manufacturer for PELTOR branded products, is pleased to announce the launch of the 3M™ SecureFit™ Protective Eyewear 600 Tactical Series (SF600-TAC), which offers military and law enforcement professionals a comfortable, high performance spectacle that re-evaluates traditional concepts of form, fit, and function.

161014-SecureFit-Law-Enforcement-Grey-Front

SF600-TAC features 3M’s proprietary Pressure Diffusion Temple (PDT) Technology. This technology is used to create a thin, self-adjusting temple with no moving parts and nothing to adjust. This helps relieve pressure over the ears and helps keep a secure, comfortable fit. Securefit’s thin temple design also minimizes interference and attenuation loss with over-the-ear hearing protectors, such as PELTOR COMTAC Tactical Communication headsets.

161014-SecureFit-Law-Enforcement-Amber-ThreeQuarter-L

SF600-TAC comes standard with 3M’s Scotchgard™ Anti-fog coating for long-lasting clarity that resists fogging longer than traditional coatings, even after multiple washes. In addition, the SF600-TAC models are all tested to the Military Vo High Velocity Impact Standard of MIL-PRF 32432(GL).

161014-SecureFit-Law-Enforcement-Clear-Side-R

Three lens options are available within this new product series: clear, grey and amber, in matte black (non-reflective) frames. A photochromic model will be launched later this year. SecureFit 600 Tactical Series: Now In Stock!

US Army and 3M Provide Hearing Protection for Soldiers

Sunday, May 21st, 2017

Army’s PEO Soldier Orders 3M™ Personal Safety Division™ Tactical Communication and Protective Systems

ST. PAUL, Minn. The U.S. Army has accepted two 3M™ products to equip soldiers with hearing protection and auditory situational awareness. The 3M Personal Safety Division has received initial orders for more than 6,500 devices that include 3M™ PELTOR™ TEP-100 Tactical Earplug Kits and 3M™ PELTOR™ COMTAC™ III ACH Communications headsets, plus spare parts and accessories totaling more than $1.6 million. Deployment of these Tactical Communications and Protective Systems (TCAPS) is managed by PEO Soldier.

“3M supports PEO Soldier’s objective to maintain hearing protection and prevent hearing loss. These products will help soldiers be more effective in combat, and will help allow them to return home with their hearing intact,” said Shawn Gregg, U.S. Business Director, 3M Personal Safety Division.

“Our history with U.S. Special Forces, collaboration with the U.S. Army, and relationships with U.S. Military Audiologists all helped contribute to the hearing solutions we have been asked to supply,” said Doug Moses, U.S. Product Marketer for Protective Communications at 3M Personal Safety Division.

The patented 3M PELTOR TEP-100 earplugs were introduced to the market in 2014 when demand for ruggedized, stand-alone electronic “in-the-ear” hearing protection devices surfaced. 3M’s research and development team responded by designing and developing a low-cost, easy-to-use, system that could be utilized in a wide range of applications, and in remote locations. A key application was for military service members and tactical law enforcement teams requiring auditory situational awareness, as well as hearing protectors to protect against the effects of hazardous noise.

The 3M PELTOR COMTAC III ACH was originally introduced to U.S. Military forces and law enforcement tactical teams in the early 2000s. The COMTAC Headset was the first tactical communications headset to offer an environmental listening function, sometimes referred to as “Talk-Through,” which enhances the ability to locate and identify opposing forces, by allowing safe audio sounds through. The headset reduces harmful noises, which promotes increased mission effectiveness, safety and survivability. The headset utilizes a proprietary digital audio circuit to sense noise levels above the desired threshold and compress them to a safe decibel level. Additionally, weak sounds can be amplified to an audible level, to better serve team members with existing hearing loss. Now in its fourth generation, over 600,000 systems have been delivered to military forces worldwide.

3M PELTOR COMTAC Headsets and Tactical Earplugs are commercially available and sold through the 3M distribution network. For more information, please visit 3m.com/tacticalppe.

3M is a global leader in hearing conservation, specializing in hearing protection devices, communication solutions in high noise environments, detection products such as noise dosimeters, fit validation systems and seen as an education authority throughout the world.

Enforce Tac – Smith Elite Ballistic Cold Weather Goggle

Thursday, March 2nd, 2017

The new Ballistic Cold Weather Goggle from Smith Elite incorporates a thermal barrier lens.  In addition to their boogie integration system for stand alone or helmet use, the lens offers MIL-PRF-32432 and MIL-DTL-43511D ballistic protection.


This dual lens system means there is a 15-20 Deg difference which results in the inner lens staying warmer in order to prevent fogging.  They have also applied their anti-fog coating to the lens for enhanced performance.  



The Smith Elite Line is available in mainland Europe from CSC.

Lancer Tactical Responds to Claims of Counterfeiting Eyewear

Thursday, February 16th, 2017

We received this email from Lancer Tactical. They offer products for the MilSim market and take issue with a Revision Military press release we recently shared.

To clarify, the “article” referenced by Lancer Tactical was a press release from Revision Military and we had no part in preparing it, as is the case with press releases, which are posted as written by the originator. In a smililar vein, and for the sake of allowing them to tell their side of the story, we have published Lancer Tactical’s note completely and also embedded their press releases.

Recently an article ran on your webpage detailing the claims that Revision made about Lancer Tactical at SHOT Show 2017. Here is a link to your article.

soldiersystems.net/2017/02/02/revision-aids-in-counterfeit-sting-operations-at-two-tradeshows-resulting-in-multiple-arrests/

In our industry Soldier Systems carries weight and Lancer Tactical is disappointed that we were not contacted and asked for a statement before the one sided article was posted.

Here is a statement from Lancer Tactical: www.lancertactical.com/Lancer%20Tactical%20Press%20Statement%20Feb%202017

To Our Loyal Customers,

It has always been the desire of Lancer Tactical to create airsoft products that hold up well on the airsoft field and will fit the budget of both casual and experienced players alike. Recently, Lancer Tactical has been wrongly and aggressively accused of counterfeiting and been attacked in the news.

An article was recently published with inaccurate information about our company, products, and recent events and we would like to clear some things up. First, Lancer Tactical his not guilty of counterfeiting; at no time did we put another companies logo on our products or mislead anyone about the products origin or value. Second, all Lancer Tactical eyewear has undergone and passed ANSI testing, and although they are not military grade, they are definitely safe to use in airsoft, which is the intended use of the eyewear. Third, the people shown in the headline picture of the article are not related to Lancer Tactical in any way.

We are disappointed in many of the media outlets, because at no time was Lancer Tactical asked for a statement or for our side of the story. The slanderous article was simply posted and reposted with no attempt made to tell both sides of the story.

The safety of airsoft players is very important to us and we work hard to make sure that our safety gear will provide all the protection a player needs on the airsoft field. We are fighting right now for the good name of Lancer Tactical and for all the airsoft players who want access to affordable airsoft gear.

We would like to thank you for supporting us during this time.

Thank you to all,

The Lancer Tactical Team

And our press release: http://www.lancertactical.com/Lancer%20Tactical%20Press%20Release

Press Release February, 2nd 2017

The owners of Lancer Tactical, a Southern-California based company that provides a large selection of airsoft guns, tactical gear and accessories to retailers around the country, stressed this week their continued efforts to provide products to their dedicated customers amid allegations of counterfeiting.

“We would like to thank our customers for their continued support and relationship with us,” Lily Chen, co-owner of Lancer Tactical, said. “We strive hard to provide a large selection of products available domestically at competitive prices. Whether you’re a large retail store, hobby shop or airsoft supplier, we are happy to be in business with you.”

On February 2, Revision, a manufacturer and eyewear supplier, published a press release on their website accusing Lancer Tactical owners of counterfeiting their products. Some of the products they allege that have been counterfeit include goggles from their Locust series.

Chen, who attended SHOT Show, an annual firearms convention in Las Vegas, says the goggles they sell are not counterfeits. She said they do not use any of the branding associated with the Vermont-based company, calling their allegations false.

Lancer Tactical, which continues to release new products every week, has hired a prominent lawyer to handle the dispute with the eyewear company.

Lily Chen said, “We want our customers to know that we take the safety claims that Revision made about our safety goggles very seriously. We have ANSI certifications on all our goggle products, and we strenuously tested them ourselves before releasing them for sale. Our goggles are not made for military service members. They are made to protect airsoft players. Both Lancer Tactical and the ANSI rating technicians feel that they are definitely up to the task.”

We would appreciate anything you could do to rectify the situation and see that both side of the story are told.
