GATORZ Blastshield Press Release

Introducing GATORZ Blastshield:

Revolutionizing Eye Protection for the Sport Shooting, Hunting, and Outdoor Industry.

 Yuma, AZ - August 1, 2023 - GATORZ Eyewear, a leading innovator in eyewear for the Sport Shooting, Hunting, and Outdoor Industry, is thrilled to announce the launch of its groundbreaking new product, the Blastshield. Designed to transform the way military personnel, law enforcement officers, shooting enthusiasts, and athletes protect their eyes during high-intensity training and other tactical applications, this cutting-edge solution is set to revolutionize the market.

 GATORZ Blastshield is the result of years of innovation and development by our team of experts. With its state-of-the-art features and unparalleled functionality, this product is poised to redefine industry standards and exceed customer expectations.

Key Features and Benefits of GATORZ Blastshield:

 >>> Interchangeable Lenses: Our patent-pending Innovative Clamp Mechanism (ICM) offers a unique mounting system for the lens shield, and allows for our free-floating lenses to be changed with a speed and ease not found anywhere else. The clamp jaw and lens interchange device is easily manipulated with one hand. This functionality allows for easy transition between locations; indoor to outdoor, day to night, hazy or changing weather conditions. Transition between activities; on the job, at the range, or everyday wear. The speed and ease of interchanging lenses sets this style apart from any other eyewear in the GATORZ collection.

>>> Uncompromised Visual Acuity: Our product offers an enhanced field of vision. Our center mount functionality reduces visual impairment from adjustment or impact. Typical shields compromise vision with standard wear flexing. Blastshield center mount solves this problem and provides an expanded field of vision, allowing a person to stay focused on their surroundings without compromising safety. The larger lenses offer crystal-clear clarity, enhancing performance and reaction time.

 >>> Advanced Impact Resistance: GATORZ Blastshield boasts a larger lens area offering a higher absorption of impact that sets it apart from other protective eyewear in the GATORZ collection. Its ANSI/MILSPEC Ballistic Grade Lenses provide unmatched impact resistance, ensuring maximum protection for those engaged in tactical applications.

 >>> Lightweight and Comfortable: The Blastshield is built with GATORZ Ghost Temples. GATORZ is known for strength and durability. With the intro of these temples, flexibility is now a key component. GATORZ Ghost Temples are half the thickness of traditional temples, purposefully designed even thinner to provide a sleek and streamlined look under helmets and ear pro, without compromising grip and fit. The added grip ensures that eyewear stays securely in place, even during the most intense activities. The flexibility of these temples also removes any pressure points, guaranteeing exceptional comfort during extended wear. And of course, like all GATORZ eyewear, the Blastshield’s fully adjustable nosepiece and temple arms ensure a secure and personalized fit, eliminating distractions and discomfort. The frames have a Cerakote® finish, offering a unique matte look and added durability.

 >>> Anti-Fog Coating: We understand the importance of clear vision in extreme conditions. GATORZ Blastshield incorporates an anti-fog coating, allowing a person to perform at their best regardless of weather conditions.

Designed to meet the needs of our incredible community of military personnel, shooting enthusiasts, and tactical warriors, GATORZ is committed to delivering products that not only meet but exceed customer expectations. With GATORZ Blastshield, we aim for innovation to revolutionize the way our customers protect their eyes and empower them to achieve more.
