TFB EXCLUSIVE Sneak Peek: Oakley “Tombstone” shooting glasses (VIDEO)

    Oakley Standard Issue chose TFB as the one media outlet that would get the scoop on their new shooting glasses, called “Tombstone.”


    Let me tell you, they are great. Oakley worked directly with the Army Marksmanship Unit (AMU) and build a pair of eyewear for shooters from the ground up. They tackled three primary concerns:

    1. Field of View

    2. Contrast/Clarity

    3. Lens Interchangeability

    The Tombstones have a large field of view and a rimless lens that maximizes your view in all directions. For contrast/clarity, Oakley utilizes their new Prizm lens technology which filters out bad light and makes your view crisp and clear. Finally, Tombstone has a simple and fast lens interchangeability system.

    I’ve been using Tombstones since late November and they are my new go-to shooting eyewear. I have a feeling others follow suit.
