SHOT Show – FS Range Day – Oakley

Last Summer I visited Oakley’s home office where they told me about some ground breaking work they were doing on vision studies. They used a specialized pair of glasses to track where an operator’s eyes go. The point of the study was to introduce eye protection that doesn’t block the wearer’s vision as he conducts combat tasks such as shooting and fast roping.


Some of that research has been made practical in the Tombstone. This new design is designed specifically for the shooting community. Not only is the Lens shape of the Tombstone designed to offer maximum visibility (120 deg FOV), but they’ve incorporated the Prizm lens which works in a wide variety of light conditions.


In this frameless design, the temple pieces attach directly to the lens via a new patented one-button quick change Mechanism. You don’t have to smudge up the lenses and it’s as easy as swapping out a magazine. There are also two lens shapes with this initial launch; the Reap (larger of the two) and Spoil. Additionally, you can get them in a wide variety of lens colors aside from Prizm.

    Any idea if this will support Rx lenses or not? Thanks.
