Through constant contact with soldiers, the ESS development team designs products that meet the specific needs of those actually wearing them. As the face of combat evolves, ESS looks to the future with an ongoing commitment to bring its customers the finest, most advanced eye protection available.
ESS eyewear features ESS Modular Technology™, which allows quick interchange of all product components. In addition to rapid changing of lens colors, for example, this modularity offers long-term savings by allowing users to replace individual damaged parts without having to purchase entire new systems.
Extra-thick polycarbonate lenses have Clear ZoneTM anti-scratch and anti-fog coatings, distortion-free optical clarity, and provide 100% UVA/UVB protection.
EXPANDED PERIPHERAL VISION
Advanced frame technology allows for increased peripheral vision, saving lives by expanding a soldier’s field of view.
BALLISTIC IMPACT RESISTANCE
ESS lenses exceed standards of ANSI Z87.1 and the U.S. Military’s .22 caliber ballistic impact requirement MIL-V-43511C. They can stop a shotgun blast from 35 feet.
Fully filtered perimeter vents dramatically reduce fogging, keep airborne particles away from the eyes, and repel liquid splashes.

I am a deployed U.S. soldier with the 656 Trans Co. I was issued ESS goggles and I must say these goggles are far superior to previous models I have used in my military service. Thanks for making a great product! — SSG, 544 MT BM not pictured

Dear Sir, I thought you might like to hear that your product saved my vision tonight. I was shooting a semi-automatic pistol at an indoor range while wearing a pair of ICE glasses when I experienced a case detonation. Smoke, blast forces, fragmentation...bummer! After cleaning the pistol and counting all my fingers, I used a cloth to remove what I thought were powder flakes from the lenses. I noticed that high-speed primer and/or cartridge case scored both lenses. Scored but NOT penetrated (or even close may I add). Had I not been wearing my ICE glasses, I am convinced I’d be blind right now. So please accept my thanks for an excellent product. Best wishes, — William Aprill not picturedNew Orleans, LA
The ultimate in anti-fog technology. Even in the most extreme conditions, the Turbo CAM™ prevents lens fogging that impairs vision during high-intensity operations. The patented Turbo CAM™ fan unit draws airflow in through the lower edge of the goggle frame and forces humid air out the top at 15,000 rpm.
We have tested the Eye Safety Systems goggles and are particularly impressed with the ESS Turbo CAM. Its durability, reliability, function, and performance have proven to be a top choice for our trainees who work on S.W.A.T. teams. For those of us who must work in inclement weather—from humid, hot days and nights to frozen tundra in upstate NY winters—fogged eye systems are an intrinsic problem, one that you have answered. Form, function, and fit come together in your system and allow vision to be clearer and eyes to be protected. —Ken Coopernot pictured Director, Tactical Handgun Training of NY, Inc.

PROVEN PERFORMANCE - FEEDBACK FROM THE FRONTLINES
''On 07 April 2003, 1430hrs vic. Baghdad (obj. MOE), my platoon, third platoon Aco 3-15, had been fighting as part of Task Force 3-15 IN on obj. MOE vic. Hwy 8. The fighting was very intense—for 18 hrs we had been in contact with the last stronghold of Saddam’s zeros. After returning from a casualty evacuation mission along RPG alley, I reoccupied my original position on Hwy 8 overlooking the west bound lanes. Myself (the Platoon Sergeant) and my crew had just engaged and destroyed one of many RPG teams when our vehicle took a direct hit from an overlooked RPG team on our left flank, destroying our TOW missile launcher and my Bradley commander’s hatch. I was hit in my neck, left shoulder, and face with shrapnel, but thanks to my ESS goggles, my eyesight is still intact—no shrapnel penetrated my ESS goggle lenses at all. As you can see, these goggles still have the shrapnel in the lens. I fought through the shrapnel in the shoulder and neck and continued to bring fight to the enemy. I believe that if the shrapnel had hit my eyes, it would have taken me and my crew out of a serious and historic fight, which resulted in the fall of the Saddam regime. Who knows, obj. MOE could have been the turning point of the war by giving the enemy a big boost in morale and making our fight that much harder. Thank you very much for your wonderful product. I’m a believer in your product, PROTECTING EYES ONE BATTLE AT A TIME.''—SFC Morales, Aco 3rd BN 15th IN
''As you know, the Division got the Profile NVG Goggles. They have worked great! They work + Soldiers like them = They are worn! Appreciate it.''- LTC, 101st Airborne not pictured
''We have been using the ESS goggles for 6 weeks now, in weather conditions ranging from the mild temperatures and low humidity of Southern California to the high humidity/rain and high temperatures we have experienced during the last three weeks while operating in the Japan/Korea area. The goggles have received a resounding, "thumbs up" for their improved comfort, field of vision, clarity, and durability.'' - LCDR (CVW-2) not pictured
