Leupold & Stevens, Inc has just announced that the Leupold Performance Eyewear is now available for purchase. All five models are designed, manufactured and assembled in the United States and will take full advantage of Leupold & Stevens 113 years of optics manufacturing experience. Some of you out there might already have a pair from Leupold’s “Join the Hunt” geocaching event.
Leupold Performance Eyewear Now Available Through Retailers
All of the frame styles are made from ballistic-rated materials and will be shipped with scratch-resistant, polarized lenses. You should find the same quality and clarity that you find in the legendary Leupold riflescopes across all five frame styles.
The choice for adventurers of all kinds. The Katmai style offers a lightweight yet rugged design with an exceptionally clear view to keep your vision true.
The Becnara style takes notes from both the fashion industry and Leupold’s proven performance. The Becnara style offers rugged Polarized lenses but with a style that can be worn every day.
Packout and Switchback
The Packout and Switchback both have shooters and hunters in mind specifically. Both have incredible optical clarity combined with an ANSI Z87.1 high-velocity impact protection rating which will keep your eyes protected from hazards associated with shooting firearms. The Packout comes in two styles while the Switchback comes in three color options and features a thicker arm section.
The Tracer shares its high-velocity ANSI Z87.1 impact protection rating with an additional feature that I actually quite like. The Tracer ships with additional clear and yellow interchangeable lenses. I find this ability quite useful for differing weather conditions as some lenses are suited to overcast and darker days than others.
All five styles of Performance Eyewear make use of infused polarized lenses which eliminate glare. This keeps your eyes fresh no matter what you’re doing or where you’re at. This polarization cannot be worn off or scratched off over time as it is built directly into the lenses, unlike other polarized glasses.
Meanwhile, Leupold’s Guard-ion hydrophobic coating will shed dirt, water, and fingerprints to keep your field of view unobstructed while the diamondcoat-hardened lenses prevent surface scratches from forming.
All five styles are available now from various retailers both online and in-store. Be sure to check out places like EuroOptic, Midway USA and OpticsPlanet for these new glasses. Let us know down in the comments which style is your favorite!
