The gang at ESS have done it again. I have not seen Ari and Steve of ESS since they took me to Boomershoot last April in Idaho. As expected their booth was very busy. They have outfitted me in the past with their Crossbow and Supressor shooting glasses. I love that I can change the lenses out to different tints. When I wear the copper tint the world just pops. I will let a fellow shooter try them on at a long range match and they can’t believe it. I need all of the help I can get to see that bullseye at 1000 yards away. These glasses make it happen. And now they have a tan colored frame that I love. I also have some of their sunglasses models. This new Credence design is way cool.

The Credence is a fixed lens. In other words, you are not able to change out the tint. But that is okay by me. The frames are a little wider than previous designs and fit my face well. Again, being 6ft tall I can’t wear a skinny frame in glasses. They come in a grey or black frame and the lens color options are the Mirror Copper or Smoke Gray. Actually there are 5 different models. As I live in the gray and rainy NW it may be awhile before I can test them out. I suppose I can wear them inside the show and people may think I am celebrity.

    I've been using the ESS Crossbow series for the last two years, it's amazing. Only a minor niggle, after two years the anti-fog has mostly faded off and one of the inside layers on the glasses has started to peel; interestinly enough, it doesn't interfere with image quality at all.

    I originally got the double kit (one clear glasses, one smoke glasses), now I'm going to pick up a few more pieces for a new set (as well as to replace the lens that is peeling, the advantage of such a modular system.
