Gear SMITH’s New Ballistic Chromapop Elite Glasses Recoil Staff March 18, 2015 Join the Conversation In case you missed it, we'll repeat the news. SMITH has announced the their new polarized Chromapop glasses. SMITH is known for putting out superbly durable lenses (as well they should, having been in the outdoor sports arena for half a century) and they don't look half bad either. Here's what they have to say about them: Identifying your target is critical to the hunt. Whether it's bedded down buck in sagebrush, a drake among hens, or a threat in a crowded street, SMITH's new ChromaPop™ Elite lens technology with MilSpec ballistic lenses will allow you to see truer color, faster to distinguish your target from its surroundings. Proprietary to SMITH, ChromaPop is the world's most advanced polarized lens technology that is engineered to enhance color and increase visual clarity. By blocking light wave intersections that create color confusion for the brain, the speed of visual processing is improved to optimize color vibrancy and offer an increase in the depth and detail of objects, while reducing eye fatigue. Constructed of MilSpec ballistic Trivex material (that meets MIL-PRF-31013 Clause 126.96.36.199), ChromaPop Elite lenses provide the durability, impact resistance and lightweight properties of polycarbonate and the optical clarity of glass while remaining scratch and impact resistant. All ChromaPop Elite lenses offer 100% protection from UVA/B/C rays and feature an anti-fog coating to the backside of the lenses to mitigate fogging. ChromaPop Elite is available in the new Drop Elite and the popular Frontman Elite frames beginning January 2015. MSRP $229 for both models.
