[Review] ESS 5B Sunglasses w/ Prescription Lenses Pros

ESS 5B Prescription Sunglasses give you style, durability, and full ballistic protection, on duty and off - and all that is combined with single-vision prescription lenses that let you see with unparallel clarity. Designed by an ESS-authorized optics lab, the lenses of your ESS 5B Rx Sunglasses meet the full ballistic and impact protection standards set by the original ESS 5B. ESS Safety Glasses and Goggles has designed these military sunglasses based on years of customer feedback. A full-wrap design and thick temples mean that that these ESS Sunglasses provide an extra measure of protection on all sides, while the thin temple arms make them highly helmet - and comms compatible and are easy to take on and off. With a comfortable universal-size fit, the ESS 5B Rx Sunglasses are everything a soldier or officer could want in prescription eyewear.

I've been wearing ESS sunglasses for over 7 years and wore them in both Iraq and Afghanistan while deployed there with the military. I recently bought the ESS 5B with prescription lens and they are wonderful! The lens perscriptions are perfect and I see more clearly with these glasses then I so with my regular prescription glasses. I bought them with the gray frames but will probably get black frames next time I reorder.
