Desert Locust Goggles

So I’m checking out the Desert Locust Military Goggle System from Revision Eyewear and my 10-year-old daughter says

“You look like you should have a fake laser thingy.”

“A ‘fake laser thingy’?” I ask.

“Yeah. A fake laser thingy. Like someone in a bad science fiction movie from the 70s.”

At that point I knew we needed a picture:

Intimidating, no?

Intimidating, no?

My guess is that the Desert Locust looks a lot better on tough guys with helmets. So that Revision doesn’t sue Murdoc for defamation of brand or lowering their real estate values or something, here’s a better picture of the Desert Locust:

These should also do the trick for off-road ATV activities. Murdoc might use his for skiing this winter.

Murdoc likes the fact that his little girl made the bad sci-fi movie connection. The fact that she correctly pinpointed the 70s era is icing.


  1. OK, Murdoc……………….

    How much moola does one have to lay out tp obtain these fine examles of eye protection?

  2. I used ESS’s Advancer model when I was in the Stan, small two separate lens (similar to the Bullet Ant—gotta love that name)that popped out of the frame at the temple to provide increased airflow when dust was low or non existent. I’m sure the locust is a nice goggle, but I’ve never liked the honkin’ big kind as they’re a pain when worn with helmets or NVGs.

  3. The kit here retails for about $90, I think. Not exactly cheap, but that is about the going rate for top-shelf goggles like this.

  4. thebronze: I also posted this at GunPundit and you commented over there. Is that maybe the disappearing comment?

    Flanker: Bullet Ant is also one I’m trying out. Seems to be a better product for a lot of roles if you don’t need the big honking ones.
