When used indoors, the Inferno lens provides clear eye protection without any tint. When exposed to UV rays, the color of the lens automatically darkens, providing protection from the sun. This popular lens keeps your eyes protected in changing environments or weather. This functional offering is a favorite for its versatility in a variety of settings spanning both on the job and personal use.
Transitioning from indoor to outdoor activities
Maintaining eye protection from day to night
Appropriate coverage in hazy or changing weather conditions
Photochromic lenses are temperature dependent; they look darkest in colder temperatures
Photochromic lenses use UV light from the sun to activate; they will not transition if restricted by car windshields with UV blockers, underneath a hat, or any other instance where direct sunlight is not present
VLT ranges from 85% (Clear) to 15% (Dark) across an approximate 60 second transition time.

Gatorz has done it once again - hit it out of the park with the new Blastshield line of protective eyewear. It features, what they term as ICM - Innovative Clamp Mechanism which allows for a repid lens change. A feature that is perfect for a quick swap while on the range or on the go. The lens are secure and the fit on the head and temples is snug to the fit. The quick ICM is great for changing conditions or environments. I have the smoke and clear lens and each one is sturdy, easy to change and solid in construction. Extra lenses are key - and easily available on the website. While viewing and shooting - the lens clarity was exceptional with both the smoke and clear lens - I would even say pristine. The arms of the Blastshield were solid in flex and the set comes with a hard case that is great for travel and in the range bag. 5 stars all the way!
This is my first pair of Gatorz and I am very happy with the purchase. The glasses are light weight and comfortable to wear. While the aluminum is light it feels durable a big improvement of the last pair of ballistic glasses I was wearing. Looking forward to the introduction of other color lenses which will make these even more versatile. I wear them every day. I don't go into the sunlight without them.
The best option to replace cheap "shooting" glasses!
Finally, shooting glasses that fit under shooting ear muffs and allow a great seal. All other "shooting" glasses with changable lens I have owned seem to have complex lens locking and the lens always ended up covered in finger prints. Blastshields change quickly and fingerprint free! I will never own plastic framed glasses ever again!!!
