I have been a long time fan of the eye protection line of products from Randolph Engineering. Established in 1972 and well known for manufacturing of mil-spec aviator sunglasses for United States Air Force, this brand has always been associated with top quality frames, excellent lenses in wide variety of colors, lifetime warranty on all solder joints, and more.

Following this new trend of shield-like eye protection for various shooting disciplines, Randolph Engineering has recently introduced the new addition to their Ranger line of shooting glasses - the Falcon. Named after the legendary F-16 Fighting Falcon, an American fighter jet known for having a cockpit with an exceptional field of view, the Falcon is a one-piece lense or shield design, similar to Pilla’s Panther X and Beretta’s Shooting Shields, that allows shooters exceptional wide-angle view of the target with remarkable optical clarity - feature highly desirable by any serious shooter.

The Ranger Falcon is currently offered as a three-lens kit, containing HD lens designed for increased contrast in medium light conditions, Dark Purple (LT-30.33%) lens designed to enhance visibility of orange targets against blue background in very bright light conditions, and Medium Yellow (LT-83.69%) lens designed for shooting in low light conditions or overcast. Package includes Falcon frame, 3 lens shields with nose pads, microfiber carrying pouch, maintenance kit, cleaning cloth, and semi-rigid nylon carrying case. The MSRP is $349.
