PROFILE SERIES GOGGLES
Created with input from elite US Special Forces groups, the Profile NVG is the only compact goggle system with no compromises. This advanced eye protection system has all the advantages of a low-profile frame shape, without sacrifices in dust filtration, field of view, or anti-fog performance.
A close proximity lens allows for unimpeded weapons sighting and night vision compatibility. Our highest quality ClearZone FC Bond coating keeps the lens fog-free under strenuous conditions, and the conforming frame has a smooth interface that face painters can keep clean. Compare the V50 impact rating (727 fps, .22 caliber) – there’s no goggle that does more for the soldier. Models available in Military Green, Desert Tan and Black; available with or with out a Stealth Sleeve. Black model available with built in face padding and Stealth Sleeve.
STRIKER SERIES GOGGLES
ESS has several other designs that offer major improvements over the old standard issue sun, wind, and dust goggles used by many domestic and international armed services.
- ESS Land Ops – the only goggle authorized for use over prescription eyewear by the US army. The Land Ops is a high impact goggle that is perfect for soldiers in aerobic environments. Models available in Military Green and a Desert Tan model will be available in mid 2005. All models available with or with out a Stealth Sleeve.

- ESS Vehicle Ops – the only goggle to receive the US Army Combat Eye Protection award for goggles. This product is ideal for mounted operations. Models available in black with or without Stealth Sleeve.

The ESS TurboFan goggles have a loyal following among the most demanding military users. A patented two-speed fan system exhausts humid air for fog-free performance under rigorous conditions.

The ESS ICE 2.4 is the most complete eyeshield system on the planet. It includes three optically correct 2.4mm thick polycarbonate lenses for use in any light conditions. The field of view is virtually unlimited with the ‘frameless’ design, and it will fit anybody, thanks to telescoping temples with bendable inner wire ear tabs.
