Cold climate operations have become an essential tactical focus for militaries around the world, with many dedicating more resources to training in the Arctic and other cold weather regions. This shift has generated a growing demand for gear that can withstand harsh conditions and function in extreme environments.
To that end, Revision Military developed the SnowHawk™ Cold Weather Goggle System in collaboration with Anon Optics, a leader in goggle design for snow sports and a brand owned by Burton Snowboards, the world’s leading snowboard company. The SnowHawk™ is the first-ever fully integrated ballistic goggle and balaclava system offering complete face coverage, superior anti-fog performance, and ballistic protection.
Extensive time, attention, and resources were dedicated to ensure breathability as well as warmth and anti-fogging:
- Mesh over the mouth and nose directs breath away from the goggle; the dual-pane thermal gasket lens creates an insulated barrier; built-in top and lateral forced-air vents provide constant airflow; and, Revision’s leading OcuMax© Plus coating is applied on the inside of the lens to prevent fogging, plus a hard-coat is on the outside of the lens to resist scratching.
- The SnowHawk system’s balaclava design utilizes Anon’s Magnetic Facemask Integration (MFI®) technology to seamlessly integrate the goggle and balaclava, ensuring stabilization and seal, with no skin exposed. The system achieves total face and head coverage, but is also intuitively designed for ease of use and swift removal when necessary.
Revision unveiled the SnowHawk™ at SOFIC 2016 and will also be showing the system at the Defence Vehicle Dynamics (DVD) trade show in the UK in September and at AUSA in Washington, D.C. in October. The demonstrator model is shown in our SnowDrift® camo pattern as market-tester and capability demonstration.
