SWISS EYE SHOOTING GLASSES
From the Fonzie,to the Terminator, the ultimate accessory has always been sun glasses. In the shooter's world, cool eye wear has to not only look good, it has to be functional and protect your eyes! I was first introduced to Swiss Eye wear when I was at Shot Show 2013. I almost passed on doing a review on them, as I was looking to do a Guns and Lace pinup style photo shoot with a red or purple set of safety glasses as a prop. My hopes were dashed, as I found out that these only come in Flat Dark Earth, Khaki green and "FBI" black. Yet, I lingered, then left and came back to their booth two more times before deciding this was the right product for me.
Sweet pinup girls in scantily clad lingerie and stylish red or lime green glasses aside, these safety glasses are unique. Swiss Eye has integrated ear buds for hearing protection into the bows of their shooter's safety eye wear. Yes I am a woman, that by nature makes me both an impulse fashion shopper and a practical being, a dichotomy that often leads to interesting rationalizations when sale shopping. But I digress...I saw these and had to ask, "Why didn't I think of that?" A simple but unique concept, shooting glasses with protective lenses and built in ear buds for both eye and ear protection, that's one heck of an idea!
