Brigantes Presents – High Angled Solution – Revision Snowhawk Goggle System

Wednesday, December 5th, 2018

Cold climate operations have become an essential tactical focus for militaries around the world, with many dedicating more resources and training to maneuvers in the Arctic and other cold weather regions. This change has resulted in an increased demand for clothing and equipment that can withstand the harsh conditions that troops face in that environment.

The SnowHawk Cold Weather System is the first-ever fully integrated ballistic goggle and balaclava system offering complete face coverage, superior anti-fog performance, and ballistic protection.

Time, effort and dedication were allocated to ensuring the breathability of this cold weather system: Mesh over the mouth and nose directs breath away from the goggle; the dual-pane thermal gasket lens creates an insulated barrier; built-in top and lateral forced-air vents provide constant airflow; and, Revision’s leading OcuMax© Plus coating is applied on the inside of the lens to prevent fogging, plus a hard-coat is on the outside of the lens to resist scratching. The SnowHawk system’s balaclava design utilizes Anon’s Magnetic Facemask Integration (MFI®) technology to seamlessly integrate the goggle and balaclava, ensuring stabilization and seal, with no skin exposed. The system achieves total face and head coverage, but is also intuitively designed for ease of use and swift removal when necessary.

Available in black or white, the SnowHawk Cold Weather System is low-profile and lightweight. This efficient design ensures compatibility with helmets, binoculars, and night vision systems. With improved comfort, functionality, and stability comes enhanced endurance and situational awareness, clearly demonstrating that this weather system is not only recommended but indeed necessary for the military to face the extreme conditions in the Arctic.

The brand is launching with three styles of eyewear – the Revision Pursuer™, made for the high elevation hunt; the Revision Caller™, made for the water’s edge; and the Revision Seeker™, made for everyday adventure.

The Revision Seeker™ shown in mountain shadow frame and cedar lens tint.

“As we talked to members of the hunting community we discovered a need for technical eyewear built for the modern hunter,” said Jonathan Blanshay, CEO of Revision. “We set out to fill that need using our military experience and insight from expert hunters and anglers to build the most protective and high-performance eyewear available for use in the extreme outdoors.”

The lenses are paired with durable, ultra-light frames that weigh just over an ounce to offer all-day comfort that will last season after season. A choice of three frame colors and three lens options allows users to fully customize each pair for their specific styles, needs and preferences.

Products are available to order on the brand’s website at www.revisionoutdoor.com. Each model is priced at $279.
