Smith Optics Elite acknowledges the need for eyewear that provides protection when youíre not expecting trouble. Drawing from the Smith Elite design philosophy and Smithís experience in making exceptionally wearable eyewear, the Tactical Lifestyle line offers Smith Protection while bringing Smith Style into the picture.
Terms like MIL SPEC and ANSI Z87.1 describe ballistic protection by defining impact resistance of a projectile at a predetermined velocity. Smith Optics Elite uses aggressive research and testing to deliver materials that donít just meet standards, they outclass them. Smith Optics Elite lenses are engineered to absorb impacts that exceed requirements with optimized optical clarity.
The Elite Tactical Lifestyle Sunglass frames meet the ANSI Z87.1-2003 standard for high impact and can be filled with safety prescriptions. The frames are molded in durable, impact rated material and provide the safety required on the job disguised in frame styles youíll want to wear on the weekend.
