Oakley is universally known for its eyewear, but in and out of the firearms community.
The manufacturer recently created a camouflage-based pair of ballistic glasses that would fully serve the purpose of concealment while still providing necessary eye protection.
The SI Fuel Cell Ultrablend from Oakley Standard Issue is a limited-edition line of eyewear that incorporates concealment and camouflage techniques taught in the Army Field Manual 21-75 Chapter 1 and utilized in the battlefield.
Meticulously produced, the SI Fuel Cell Ultrablend eyeglasses are hand-crafted and individually airbrushed using two different patterns of netting and three different colors of Cerakote Generation II Firearm Coating. The final product has the added aspects of durability, abrasion resistance, lower NIR reflectivity and a unique camouflage pattern that could only be achieved making them by hand.
SI Fuel Cell Ultrablend lenses also incorporate Oakley’s patented High Definition Optics (HDO) and meet ANSI Z87.1 impact standards.
For more than 20 years, Oakley SI has worked in conjunction with the U.S. Armed Services to develop products that have proven critical in the field. Oakley SI has applied its extensive engineering and advanced technologies from this partnership to create the SI Fuel Cell Ultrablend.
The SI Fuel Cell comes in black or desert color patterns and is available now.
