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:
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:
- High-impact protection certified to ANSI Z87.1 and Military Requirements (MIL-V-43511C clause 3.5.10 and MIL-PRF-31013 clause 184.108.40.206).
- Widest field-of-view and optically correct goggle lens provide unprecedented visual clarity.
- High performance OcuMax™ coating provides superior protection against fogging and scratching.
- Top and lateral forced air vents provide constant airflow while filtration media prevents small particle entry.
- Interchangeable lenses for various light conditions – Clear, Smoke and High-Contrast (Note:High-Contrast Yellow Lenses not approved for U.S. Military use).
- Polycarbonate lenses offer 100% protection from UV-A, UV-B and UV-C rays.
- Pliable frame material and strapping system seals to face comfortably.
- Low profile design ensures compatibility with helmet, weapon sights, binoculars and night-vision systems.
- Optional Prescription (Rx) Carrier available (compatible with Sawfly).
- U.S. Army Authorized Protective Eyewear List.
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.
