    Protective eyewear

    Hellion protective eyewear is made of a soft material that forms a gasket seal similar to a goggle to protect from wind, dust, debris and small particles. This material provides an extended brow guard and side panels surrounding 80 percent of the lens. The glasses are available in clear, gray, and indoor/outdoor clear mirror anti-fog lens options.
