Revision Wins Exclusive Contract To Supply Swiss Armed Forces With Sawfly Spectacle


Revision Military, a world leader in protective soldier solutions, proudly announces a 5-year contract to supply the Swiss Armed Forces with its protective eyewear needs. Following extensive user trials and meeting stringent performance requirements, Revision’s Sawfly Eyewear was selected as the all-purpose ballistic spectacle of choice. Beginning January 2014, it will become the standard issue spectacle to all Swiss troops—to the tune of 290,000 Sawfly Military Eyewear kits plus additional accessories. This is Revision’s second eyewear contract with the Swiss Armed forces; in 2008 they were awarded a contract to supply 10,000 Desert Locust Military Goggles.

“Revision is proud to have been selected as the key supplier for the Swiss military’s protective eyewear needs,” States Jonathan Blanshay, CEO of Revision, “With this contract Switzerland joins the short list of countries that have made ballistic eye protection a priority for their soldiers and recognize that by recommending eye protection as an everyday item—like boots and helmets—soldier familiarity with the equipment once on the battlefield is ensured.”

In addition to Switzerland Revision exclusively supplies German, Canadian, British, Dutch, Belgian and Danish forces with their protective eyewear needs. The Revision Sawfly continues to be the most widely issued military spectacle amongst NATO nations, dominating the ballistic protective eyewear landscape worldwide.

The Sawfly Eyewear System features a lightweight frame, communications equipment-compatible arms and interchangeable ballistic protective lenses. It’s also prescription capable with Revision’s Rx Carrier, 95,000 of which were also included in this contract award. The Sawfly Spectacle provides superior ballistic protection, exceeding EN 166 and military ballistic impact requirements (MIL-PRF-31013, clause and MIL-DTL-43511D, clause 3.5.10); flawless optics for distortion-free vision; and rugged durability to protect and perform through all the rigors of combat.

    Those things are terribly uncomfortable.

    Gave everyone in basic headaches. NOT optically correct. Oaks and ESS don’t have this issue.

    Revision’s customer service and ability to respond to a customer is horrible. Not happy with them at all.

    Good choice on the vermillion lens, instead of yellow.
    However, mines slides down my nose when sweaty..

    Ben, Pblead, Jon… Do you guys work at Ess? Seriously.. Over a million sawflys fielded and used with phenomenal results and you guys happen to show up together,, within hours,

    Crazy coincidence or Competitors blowing smoke….
    When, where, etc did you get them?
    Pblead… Not optically correct? Really you think that’s even possible? They Are optically flawless. How did you determine that? Let me guess..
    You shine a laser thru them and see how far off they are…

    Here’s a little tip for you guys…

    Many other countries do exhaustive studies and testing and trials of eyewear to determine what is best.. Using world class test measuring devices, comprehensive end user field trials, and undergoing many significant ballistics tests.. And at the end of it they SELECT the Best performing and highest levels of protection.

    So you expect anyone to really believe your freigned displeasure with the performance of the Sawfly.? With Any of Revisions Eyewear?

    Sure smells like a bunch of crap to me….
    Keep drinking the kook aid and remember to save your game when you finish.

    Thanks for your time…
