The Smith Elite series is made in the USA and designed to exceed US ANSI Z87.1-2003 and CE EN166 requirements for ballistic protection. The Smith Elite combat OTW goggles are made to US MIL-DTL-43511D specifications and have been presented to the UK MoD for review for 2010. The OTW Turbofan goggle is the upgraded version of the OTW Smith Elite combat eye protection series, designed with a two-speed fan to clear lenses in hot or humid conditions. The OTW ballistic protection goggle offers an almost uninhibited field of view with maximum ballistic protection, superior optical clarity and a secure custom fit strap system to ensure a superior and comfortable eye protection system. The OTW turbofan is mounted inside the goggle area, above the nose and offers a reliable, effective, lightweight and quiet system for evacuating moist air out and away from the inner lens. The Smith system removes 50% more cubic inches of air at a 40% lower decible level than the competition. Two speed options adjust to activity level. Easy on/off button can be operated with gloves on. The fan operates with two AAA batteries. The fan has an auto shut-off to preserve battery life. Battery housing is located on the strap out of the way and is water and dust resistant. The OTW tactical goggle field kit comes with anti-fog, scratch resistant coated clear and smoke lenses; face-enclosing frame with flame resistant anti-microbial foam, sleeve to slide over goggle lenses when not in use, 40mm thick adjustable elastic with flexible rotating temples for more sympathetic movement when worn with helmet, MOLLE mountable zip case and instruction booklet. The goggles can be internally fitted with an optional prescription lens insert which is interchangeable between the OTW, OTW Turbofan and AEGIS glasses system. Frame and elastic are of anatomically optimized design for seamless helmet integration and face fit. 3.3mm thick lenses are tapered for distortion free optics and provide 100% protection from harmful UVA/UVB/UVC rays. Spare lenses come inside no-fog cleaning cloth. The colour available is Black. In our opinion, the OTW military goggle is one of the best eye-sealing military goggles to come out recently and is highly likely to be adopted by the UK Armed Forces as main ballistic eye protection for wear with the helmet. The turbofan OTW goggle offers an upgraded level of clarity in an excellent goggle system.
The kit includes goggle frame with anatomically optimized design for seamless fit around face and helmet, smoke and clear lens, MOLLE mountable case, booklet, anti-fog cleaning lens cover and sleeve to fit around lens when not in use.
