Air Rage - Auto-Light Adjusting - Black Frame Fits small to medium head sizes.

We tried the new Wiley X Air Rage on one of our employees with a large head size and they were surprisingly quite comfortable. There is enough flex in the nylon temple arms so we believe this model will fit most any head sizes quite well. That's good, because the Air Rage is a good-looking pair of protective sunglasses.

But don't let these good looks fool you. The Air Rage is pure military but very suitable for a day at the beach, lake, the golf course or for that long ride in the desert southwest.

The new cavity seal (gasket) that keeps eyes free of dust is removable on those days when dust or wind protection is not required. The gasket is now soft fabric covered foam for unbelievable comfort and durability. Symetrical venting allows cool air to enter the frame naturally. This is a very nicely engineered product.

The Air Rage meets or exceeds ANSI Z87.1-2003 safety standards and MIL PRF high velocity military impact standards. All Wiley X models feature full UVA/UVB ultra-violet protection.

The Model 696 Light Adjusting (Photogrey) frame is gloss black, like a lot of Wiley X combat eyewear. But, this version includes the newest 4th generation photogrey lens technology (Auto-Light Adjusting). If you've owned photogreys, also called transitional lenses, in the past, you were probably disappointed with their performance. They would generally only darken to a very light gray. These darken faster and deeper than any photogrey lenses of the past. And, they clear to almost crystal clear much faster than before. In fact, when fully clear in a room or at night they transmit at least 85% of light. Plain clear lenses transmit 89% of light. So the difference between clear and Auto-Light Adjusting at night or inside is insignificant. When in full sunlight, they transmit 17% of light, which is better performance than some tinted lenses. These lenses perform like no other Light Adjusting lenses on the market.

To put it into perspective, on a scale of 1 to 5 with 1 being clear and 5 being traditional dark tinted lenses, we rate the darkness somwhere close to 4.0. The 3rd generation we rate on our scale at between 2.5 to 3.0. This is a significant improvement.

Just a note about photogrey technology. Photogrey lenses will not darken to their full strength while in a vehicle. To darken they must be exposed to sunlight (ultra-violet rays) which activates the darkening process. If you need standard tint lenses for driving, we generally don't recommend photogrey lenses. Also, a lot of people will place them in the sun behind a window of a car or their house to "test" how well they work. Windows block most ultra-violet rays so they will not darken. If you spend a lot of time outdoors, are in and out of buildings all day, or ride motorcycles (without a shield, which blocks UV rays), these are great for 24 hour use. That's why military personnel love auto-light adjusting lenses. There are no extra lenses to swap out or carry around which are subject to damage and they work very well in desert environments regardless of weather conditions.

Comes with a semi-hard case and leash.

There is no shipping or handling charge. Shipping is free to U.S. and APO/FPO addresses.
