FortKnight Optics Exclusively Uses ZEISS Lenses for Precision Tactical Eyewear

Optimized for the shooting sports, the exclusive Ballistic HD & Free Range HD Lenses by ZEISS give unparalleled optical clarity and breakthrough polarization technology so you can see every detail when on the range.

Vancouver BC, Canada (April 2023) – FortKnight Optics, a leading provider of high-performance eyewear, is proud to offer the shooting sports community a cutting-edge solution for optimal vision on and off the range. FortKnight Optics exclusively uses lenses by world-class ZEISS, the leading manufacturer of precision optics, to provide unparalleled performance and protection in a stylish package suitable for the shooting range or everyday wear. A key feature that sets FortKnight Optics apart is the utilization of ZEISS lenses, available in clear and sun lenses.

ZEISS’ ballistic clear lenses provide up to 70 percent greater visual clarity compared to standard lenses. The 308 Ballistic Clear glasses give the wearer a clearer view of targets and a distortion-free sight picture. Whether using spotting scopes, open sights, or firearm-mounted optics, these glasses will give the wearer the edge needed to hit the mark. The lightweight polymer frames of the 308 Ballistic Clear glasses are designed for all-day comfort and optimized for use with ear-pro. They feature ANSI-rated impact protection, ensuring the wearer’s eyes are protected from any accidental impacts or flying debris. In addition to their safety features, these glasses also feature ZEISS lens coatings for premium performance. These coatings are the same as those found in premium riflescopes and ensure one gets the best anti-fog, scratch-resistant, hydrophobic/oleophobic durable coatings. The Ballistic Clear glasses are the best fit for small to medium/narrow face shapes. For those with larger/wider face shapes, check out the 338 Ballistic Clear glasses.

In addition, FortKnight Optics also offers sun versions of its lenses, which utilize a revolutionary new polarization technique from ZEISS called LightPro Technology®. These new plano sun lenses by ZEISS offer the benefits of polarized lenses cutting annoying glare, and the depth perception and visual details of non-polarized lenses. They provide up to 80 percent greater visual contrast and will not dim electronic screens or illuminated reticles, ensuring a clear and unobstructed view during shooting activities. Unlike traditional polarized lenses, FortKnight Optics’ sun lenses also avoid the “rainbow blur” many people associate with polarized lenses when looking through glass or shooting optics. Furthermore, all lenses by FortKnight Optics are impact-rated, providing reliable protection during shooting activities.

The 308 Free Range Sunglasses are designed for those who will not settle for less than the best, featuring FortKnight Optics’ exclusive FrontSight HD lenses by ZEISS. These sunglasses are designed to give the wearer the clarity one needs to identify threats, get on target faster, and get accurate hits downrange. The FrontSight HD lenses by ZEISS are just the beginning of the 308 Free Range Sunglasses’ impressive features. These shooting glasses have lightweight polymer TR90 frames, making them comfortable to wear for long periods. They also have extreme scratch resistance, meaning one can take them with you on any mission without fear of damage. Anti-fog ventilation ensures that one’s vision remains crystal clear, even in the most humid conditions. Additionally, the glasses have premium ANSI Z87 impact protection for one’s eyes, ensuring safety on the range or in the field. The 308 Free Range Sunglasses are the best fit for small to medium/narrow face shapes. For those with larger/wider face shapes, check out the 338 Free Range Sunglasses. These are the perfect addition to a range bag and are made in small runs, ensuring the customer always has the latest technology at their fingertips.
