Sportviz XTS Sun Core Shooting Glasses

    Sportviz has introduced a new model to their portfolio; the XTS Sun Core. The model is ideal for all types of shooting providing eye protection, and also adding the ability to use their patented prescription inserts (what they are calling “Inzerts”).

    The Inzert contains the wearer’s exact ophthalmic prescription, and lens options like single vision, bifocal and varifocal.

    The frame is lightweight and comes in four colors: Blue, Black, White and Grey.

    The lenses are polarized and offer full UV400 protection, blocking both UVA and UVB. The lenses also come in four colors: Brown Gradient, Grey Gradient, Gold Mirror and Blue Mirror. All of the lenses are interchangeable and can be swapped out based on needs, and work in the other Sportviz products and also their Aquaviz products (including their swim, snorkel, dive and ski masks).

    The system works by buying the XTS Core (around $60) and then the Inzerts for around $40. The XTS Core comes with a cleaning cloth, microfiber pouch and solid case. You can also purchase Yellow Contrast and Clear Protective Lenses.
