Your eyes are the key to victory whether this is on the flat range, the battlefield, or your latest hunt. Keeping your eyes protected will ensure that they can continue to be used for your favorite shooting job or sport for decades to come, and today Gatorz has just announced the latest addition to their all-aluminum-framed lineup of ballistic rated safety glasses frames – the Wraptor frame.
Wraptor – the Latest Aluminum Framed Ballistic Eyewear from Gatorz
The Wraptor frame features a wrap-style fit for full protection across the front of your eyes as well as the sides and is very similar to my favorite style of safety glasses – the shield style. The benefit of the Wraptor frames is not only their wider area of coverage for the eyes, but also for their compact design which allows them to more easily fit underneath hats, helmets, and work better with your chosen method of hearing protection.
Like other Gatorz ballistic eyewear, the Wraptors are capable of withstanding two shots from a .15 caliber projectile that is traveling between 700 and 725 fps without producing any cracks, or fragments that could dislodge from the body and harm the face or the eyes. The Wraptor frame will make use of the already existing lineup of Gatorz lenses including their photochromatic (transition)Inferno lens, their clear lense, and of course their smoked lenses – all of which offer UV 400 protection, and include both an anti-fog and hydro-oleophobic coating.
In addition to the release of the Wraptor frame, Gatorz is also releasing a few limited editions of already existing frames like the new Specter frame in Cerakote Gunmetal, OD green, or Tan. The new Wraptor frames will be available (at the time of writing) in black frame configuration only and will retail for $240.00. What are your thoughts on this new offering? Would these be good to keep in the gear bag for range sessions and hunting trips? Or do you have a specific pair of eyewear for each occasion?
