SMITH Launches New Camo Collection
KETCHUM, ID (July 29, 2014) – Whether you’re hunting big game, posted up in a duck blind or stealthily entering enemy territory, SMITH Elite has your vision protected with MilSpec level impact resistance wrapped in the most effective camouflage patterns used today. Featuring designs from Realtree®, Kryptek and Multicam® across four frame styles, SMITH Elite offers a variety of tactical protection solutions to dissuade and disguise visual detection.
Debuting this summer, the new Drop Tactical sunglasses (MSRP $199) provide maximum frame coverage in impact-resistant materials, including polarized brown high impact lenses to keep fast moving debris and light out of your eyes. For the avid huntsmen, SMITH features frames in Realtree A/P® camo – a neutral, open, realistic, versatile and effective pattern. For bird hunters, the frame is also offered in Realtree MAX-4® wetlands camo, providing maximum effectiveness as waterfowl camo in any open terrain and without geographical limitations. Additional styles featuring Realtree A/P and Max-4 patterning include the Hideout Tactical (MSRP $95-140) and Hudson Tactical (MSRP $95-140) frames, with 3 lens options available.
Specially designed for varied geographical regions and elevations, SMITH is also utilizing Kryptek Highlander™ patterns to increase stealth when pursuing a wide range of quarry in mixed terrain. For use by military and hunters alike, Kryptek Highlander is available with gray MilSpec rated lenses in the Hideout Tactical, Hudson Tactical and Prospect Tactical frame styles (MSRP $179 each).
For military and law enforcement personnel, SMITH offers Kryptek Typhon™ and Multicam® patterning. Ideal for night missions and featuring a black and gray snakeskin design, Kryptek Typhon serves those who operate when and where others will not venture. The MultiCam® pattern was developed to effectively limit the visual signature of a person operating across a very wide range of physical environments and seasons. The official issued pattern of the US Army for all Afghanistan operations in 2010, MultiCam blends a variety of neutral hues to allow the overall appearance to change from green to brown tones in different areas of the fabric, while having smaller blotches to break up the bigger background areas. Kryptek Typhon is available in the Hideout Tactical, Hudson Tactical and Prospect Tactical frame styles with MilSpec impact resistant gray lenses (MSRP $179 each), and the MultiCam is offered in the Prospect Tactical frame (MSRP $179).
All styles feature 8 base lens curvature for full eye protection, impact resistant lens and frame materials (meets ANSI Z87.1 and MIL-PRF-31013 Clause 220.127.116.11) and have hydrophilic Megol temple and nose pads that gently adhere to the skin when reacting to perspiration and moisture.
