Engineered to meet the challenges of U.S. military special forces, police tactical units and U.S. military allies, the Eye Protective System-21 (EPS-21™) Combat Goggle provides maximum protection against ballistic fragmentary projectiles well in excess of military specifications, while also serving as a sun, wind and dust goggle. Its ballistic inner lens is 4mm of optically clear, anti-fog coated polycarbonate, which also provides long-term eye protection by blocking out harmful UV solar radiation. The goggle also has provisions for a corrective lens insert for prescription lens wearers.

The durable nylon frame and sleek, low-profile design of the EPS-21 allows for a wide range of view while ensuring compatibility with a variety of helmets — TBH-II, Advanced Combat Helmet, MMH-II, Lightweight Level IIIA, PASGT, DH-132 AS and TCH — weapon sights, and targeting systems.

The product’s unique outsert lens design offers quick-change capabilities to meet the varying light management requirements of the wearer. In addition, a wide range of optional sunshade, contrast enhancement, and laser protection outserts can be easily integrated to provide additional ballistic protection with no parallax induced optical degradation. Lenses offer 99% UV(A), UV(B) and UV(C) protection, and laser protective capabilities are not compromised after exposure to high and low operating temperatures.

The system can include a ski-type goggle or a universal strap that accommodates almost every type of helmet. It features a unique strap locking mechanism that allows the goggle frame to be adjusted for a snug fit, even after releasing the goggle away from the face. The EPS-21 comes standard with a choice of a green or black carrying case to stow the goggle and accessories on standard load bearing equipment.

CAMARILLO, Calif. (Aug. 12, 2008) Thirteen West Coast-based Navy SEALs act in a scene for an upcoming episode of the Fox network television series “24” at Camarillo Airport.
