I’m a huge fan of shield-style eyewear for the range. That’s why I’m excited to share the news that GATORZ Eyewear has just released its first pair of shield-style lenses dubbed “Blastshield.” The GATORZ Blastshield line will feature a brand new quick-change lens system via a centrally mounted hub, along with new flexible thin temples that fill easily fit under helmets, hats, and ear protection.

    Features like this always sound cool but switching between lenses is going to be way slower than just switching eye pro. And you could probably buy 3 decent sets of eye pro for cheaper than this and just keep them in your shooting bag, heck that's what I do now.

    Yea, that is pretty pricey. Revision does the same thing with the sawfly and you can get pretty good deals when sales come around. https://www.revisionmilitar...
