Designed, machined, and assembled in the United States, Leupold’s Performance Eyewear line takes full advantage of the 113 years of optics manufacturing expertise only Leupold can offer.
Five styles will be available at launch: the Katmai, Becnara, Packout, Switchback, and Tracer. All five styles are made from lightweight, ballistic-rated materials and ships with scratch-resistant polarized lenses as rugged and clear as Leupold’s legendary sporting optics.
Three of the five styles – the Packout, Switchback, and Tracer – meet or exceed ANSI Z87.1 high-velocity impact standards for eye protection.
“We make the lightest, clearest, and most rugged rifle scopes, spotting scopes, binoculars, and rangefinders you’ll ever use,” said Tim Lesser, Vice President of Product Development for Leupold & Stevens, Inc. “Our products outperform the competition under the harshest conditions, without fail. Now, with the Performance Eyewear line, we’re applying that same expertise to a new line of optics, so you can experience Leupold’s rugged clarity every day.”
The Katmai is the choice for any adventurer. Lightweight, rugged, and exceptionally clear, they can be trusted to keep your vision true. The Becnara, meanwhile, fuses Leupold performance with everyday style. Polarized, rugged, and incredibly clear, they won’t let you down.
The Packout and Switchback designs are at home with any hunter or shooter, and pair proven optical clarity with a ANSI Z87.1 high-velocity impact protection rating. The Tracer combines that same ANSI Z87.1 high-velocity impact protection, including an additional pair of clear and yellow interchangeable lenses, making it a must-have for any diehard shooter.
All five styles share numerous top-of-the-line features like in-fused polarized lenses, which eliminate glare and keep your eyes fresh whether you’re on the water or in the field. Leupold’s Guard-ion hydrophobic coating sheds dirt, water, and fingerprints for a clear, crisp image, while Diamondcoat-hardened lenses reduce surface scratches.
A no-slip bridge design provides all day comfort with soft-touch rubber bridge pads. Daylight Max technology, meanwhile, provides complete UV protection for optimal performance in any environment.
“Leupold consumers expect the highest-quality optics in the world, and we delivered,” said Zach Bird, Product Line Manager for Leupold & Stevens, Inc. “We designed the performance eyewear line for every possibility. Whether you’re on the range each weekend, hiking a ridge looking for a trophy bull, or just driving to work every day, our performance eyewear line has something for you – and every model is designed, machined, and assembled right here in the USA.”
