   06.13.12

Essex Junction, VT – Revision, a world leader in protective soldier solutions, has earned an unprecedented third spot on the U.S. Army’s Authorized Protective Eyewear List (APEL) for its Small-size Sawfly Military Eyewear System. In addition to the established Regular and Large sizes, the Sawfly Small provides best-in-class protection and performance for users with a smaller face geometry. The Sawfly Small features a tighter base curve lens that follows the contours of smaller proportions, providing greater lateral protection and excellent retention for its users.Revision Small-Size Sawfly Kit

“When it comes to personal protective equipment no one size fits all. In working directly with our end users, Revision determined the need to add a Small size to the Sawfly Military Eyewear line,” explains Dan Packard, Sr. VP U.S. Military Sales. “Personal protective eyewear needs to properly fit a wide range of head sizes in order to provide a comfortable, optically correct and ergonomically correct solution. The Sawfly’s three size offerings-Small, Regular and Large-ensures the best performance for our troops.”

Like its Regular and Large counterparts, the Sawfly Small features a lightweight frame, Comms-Compatible arms and interchangeable UV protective lenses. It’s also prescription capable with the Revision-developed, DoD approved Universal Rx Carrier.

Like all Sawfly eyewear products, the Sawfly Small provides superior ballistic protection, exceeding ANSI Z87.1-2010 and military ballistic impact requirements (MIL-PRF-31013, clause 3.5.1.1 and MIL-DTL-43511D, clause 3.5.10); flawless optics for distortion-free vision; and rugged durability to protect and perform through all the rigors of combat.

The APEL approved two-lens Sawfly U.S. Military Eyewear Kit in size Small has an MSRP of $89.99 and is proudly 100% made in the USA. The Sawfly Small is also available internationally to meet the protection needs of military forces worldwide.
