As someone who’s nearsighted, I have to have my shades and shooting glasses made with prescription lenses. That’s a bummer as there are so many other great (and less expensive) options out there. Some of the most attractive and best-featured are from Magpul’s eyewear line. They manage to look good without appearing too “tactical.”
They’ve just expanded their Terrain line of eye pro. Here’s their press release.
The Terrain is designed for our most demanding customers, and it’s well suited for those who require ballistic and safety protection for maximum coverage in a larger frame that best fits medium to large faces.
Constructed from TR90NZZ, the strongest thermoplastic material available for eyewear, the Terrain provides extreme impact resistance, durability, and flexibility in a lightweight package. The Terrain’s oleophobic-treated lenses shed liquid and won’t be degraded by water, sweat, or chemicals, and they’ve been both impact tested and safety rated, providing you with the all-around protection your eyes need.
Its 8-base wrap and over molded anti-slip rubber nose and temple pads prevent slippage and make sure the Terrain stays put while you’re in motion. On the range, where high levels of ballistic protection are a must, the Terrain will exceed expectations.
The design of the Terrain’s low-profile temples integrates well under helmets, headsets, and over-the-ear hearing protection, ensuring that you’re protected and able to perform naturally wherever you put them and yourself to the test.
- Constructed of TR90NZZ, the frames combine lightweight construction and ballistic protection, providing rugged strength and flexibility
- Ballistic Rated Z87+ and MIL-PRF 32432 lenses and frames meet both high velocity impact protection and safety ratings
- Oleophobic and anti-glare lenses repel liquids and provide oil, sweat, sunscreen, and other chemical protection
- Low profile temples integrate with over-the-ear-hearing protection and communication headsets
- Coated stainless steel pins provide simple but dependable hinge functionality
- Anti-slip rubber nose and temple pads

At that price where are they made?
i have never seen a pair of shades that were not stamped taiwan roc.
yea yea yea,
Let me know when the start making the ACR again!!
Rated for chemicals, but I’d still be careful with them around sunscreen. Sunscreen irreversibly messed up the paint on my truck.
6: 12 ruined the windows on my hot wheels.
this one if i recall.
I wore prescription pairs similar to those from Walmart for several years. The first pair cost around $10 for the frames; safety glasses and automatic sun glasses. As time went on, I guess they became more popular and the price rose a great amount each time I went to get new ones. They worked great. Now that I live in the city, I dumped them for some cheap birth control frames.
Sorry, I won’t spend over $10.00 for a pair of sunglasses that are just going to break, get lost or scratched up.
Hercules! Hercules! Hercules!
Being old and blind, somewhat, I’ll stick to my Raybans.
And with some of the Raybans you can still get the tacti-cool look!
Good review. I wore Ray Bans (aviator style) most of my entire adult life. Brenda W. Was once giving a class in house on touchie feelie law enforcement. She said, “What we need to get away from is the flight glasses and the drill sergeant hats.” Everyone in the room looked at me. I spread my hands and asked, “What?” Our policy on headgear was pretty lax. I wore a campaign hat, Ray Bans and spit shined Danners. Lost those Ray Bans just after I retired. After 24 1/2 years. I wept. Mike gave me a pair of Costa’s. Never looked back. But these glasses are dirt cheap. One question. Are they polarized?
By these glasses, I mean the Mag-Puls.
what’s by them? by cracky?
“As someone who’s nearsighted, I have to have my shades and shooting glasses made with prescription lenses. ”
Laser Eye Correction. Look into it in a serious way. I was extremely near sighted with a bad astigmatism. Had the surgery nearly 20 years ago and must say I am delighted I did. No more eyeglasses, no more fogging up or spending big dollars for prescription shades.
The technology is even better today.
Had none done about 15 years ago. Even though I still don’t need glasses, I’m old enough a pair of cheaters are occasionally required for reading.
A frame that fits large faces? Awesome! I have a big head and a big fat face, and lemme tell you, finding glasses off the rack is impossible.
In the video the guy putting his electronic ear muffs over the bottom of his cap, that will allow more sound to enter than what the sunglasses arms might already be allowing in.
I have Smith Optics Hudsons paired the Noisefighters gel ear pads on my ear muffs. BTW, for the Noisefighters, you can request a LE/Mil/Vet discount.
