The SI Ballistic HNBL eyewear was optimized for performance and a low-profile design. The glasses are made from stress-resistant O-Matter frame material and come in a variety of frame sizes for a comfortable fit. The HNBL is also fully compatible with a wide variety of bump and ballistic helmets including the MICH, ACH, PASGT, CVC, Team Wendy, Crye, and of course Ops-Core.

Each of these lenses can be easily swapped out using the HNBL’s tool-free quick snap lens change design.
