A company called Numa Sport Optics is manufacturing and marketing a line of tactical eyewear called Numa Tactical, the purpose of which is to provide military and law enforcement (LE) tactical operators with eyewear that’s resilient and rugged enough to withstand combat operations. The key to this is Numa Tactical eyewear’s lightweight, indestructable-seeming Swiss-developed Swiss FlexFrame a.k.a. MemFibr FlexFrame "smash-proof" frame that can be bent in extreme fashion to the point that it’s virtually "unbreakable".

When we spoke with Jake Bennett, president/CEO of Numa Tactical, he told us that they’re…

using the best-quality polycarbonate lenses with perfect optical clarity that are tapered for zero distortion. He also told us that the lenses also now have an anti-fog coating on front and back of the lens.

According to the Numa Tactical website, all models are wraparound style with "anti-fog venting, no-slip-grip-rubber temple/nose pads, perfect distortion-free ocular clarity, impact- and scratch-resistant lenses, 100% UV400 protection, and interchangeable lens options to suit every condition." All Numa Tactical models now have ANSI Z87.1-compliant ballistic lenses for optimum protection against frontal impacts.

DefenseReview has been wearing the Numa Tactical Lo-Pro 204-01 model glass that we obtained at SHOT Show 2008. This glass is exceptionally lightweight and very comfortable to wear. We’ve used them for several shooting sessions, and can attest to their excellent optical clarity. The performed very well.

Defense Review will be adding photos of newer Point 301-01 model glass to this article shortly, so check back in to see those. The Point 301-01 model has a deeper lens groove so the lens can’t get knocked out (rearward) from a frontal impact. This aspect, combined with Z87.1 lens, offers the wearer the highest level of ballistic (a.k.a. anti-ballistic) protection available.
