Khyber offers the highest level of protection in the Gargoyles collection. Surpassing not only ANSI Z87.1+ standards for high mass impact, high velocity impact and optical clarity, Khyber also meets the US military specification Mil Spec 32432, which means the lenses can withstand impact at 440 mph or 650 feet per second! This is not your ordinary sunglass. All Gargoyles lenses are ballistic-rated - meeting or exceeding ANSI Z871.1+ impact standards - and offer superior optics along with anti-reflective and oleophobic treatments to repel water, resist smudging, and make cleaning easier.
Gargoyles Tactical+ styles are designed for very high levels of performance and protection. These styles meet or exceed ANSI Z87.1+ specifications, with additional high-velocity impact protection that meets military specification MIL PRF 32432. Ideal for military and law enforcement personnel or for those who seek increased velocity protection.
In the MIL PRF 32432 velocity impact test, a quarter-inch steel projectile is shot at the lenses at 708km/hr. The sunglasses must be able to take this punishment without the lenses cracking, breaking, falling out of the frame, or touching the eye.
Remaining standards met by Gargoyles Tactical+ styles are at the ANSI Z87.1+ level.
