A Tactical Expert's Guide to the Best Shooting Glasses for 2024

Breaking down the best shooting glasses

Hello fellow shooters! As someone who's spent more time on ranges than I care to admit, I've learned a thing or two about the importance of good shooting glasses. Not just for the obvious safety reasons, but for the edge they give you in precision and comfort. And let's be honest, who doesn't want to look sharp while hitting their targets? This year, FortKnight Optics has really caught my eye (no pun intended), and I'm excited to share why they should be on your radar too.

The Importance of High-Quality Shooting Glasses

Now, let's take a look into why shooting glasses are important in the first place. 

Eye Protection: A No-Brainer

I remember a close call I had a few years back when a ricochet piece nearly hit my eye. That was a wake-up call! Though they are not bulletproof, high-quality shooting glasses are your first line of defense against such hazards. FortKnight Optics has mastered the art of blending safety with clarity, offering lenses that can withstand high-impact scenarios without compromising your view.

Vision Clarity: Seeing is Hitting

Ever missed a shot because your vision was blurred or the lenses fogged up? Frustrating, right? Well, with the advanced lens technology in FortKnight Optics eyewear, that's a thing of the past. The right tint combined with breakthrough polarization technology by ZEISS make a world of difference, especially under changing light conditions. I've noticed a remarkable improvement in my target acquisition since switching to these glasses.

Comfort for Long Sessions

Comfort is key, especially during those long practice sessions. Most shooters can recall having a time when uncomfortable eyewear made a session at the range annoying at best, and unbearable at worst. The ergonomic design of FortKnight Optics ensures they sit snugly without pinching or slipping, and are comfortable under ear protection - a real game-changer for endurance and focus.

Essential Features of Premium Shooting Glasses

Lens Material and Impact Resistance

Durability is crucial. FortKnight Optics uses top-grade materials developed by ZEISS specifically for our precision shooting eyewear. These lenses are tough as nails, resisting scratches and impacts effortlessly.

Optimal Lens Tints for up to 80% Greater Visibility

Different tints can cause challenges in the field. FortKnight Optics worked with the engineers at ZEISS to develop FrontSight HD - A breakthrough polarization  technology that offers up to 80% greater visibility when transitioning from bright to low-light conditions. FortKnight Optics eyewear is used by a wide range of shooters in environments ranging from law enforcement officers making dynamic entries, to competitive clay shotgunners.  Whether you're on the range shooting indoors or out in the field - pro or hobby shooter - These belong in your kit.

Frame Design: The Perfect Fit

A good fit is non-negotiable. These glasses cater to various face shapes, ensuring that they stay put without any discomfort. Trust me, once you find the right fit, there's no going back. The 308 model caters to Smaller/Narrow face shapes, while the 338 is the fit for medium/large and wider faces.
