Each of the new styles is available in multiple lens and frame combinations, adding 11 total new sets of eyewear to Leupold’s line. Like the rest of the Performance Eyewear line, the Payload, Refuge and Cheyenne are all are made from lightweight, ballistic-rated materials and ship with scratch-resistant polarized lenses as rugged and clear as Leupold’s legendary sporting optics.
“Our products outperform the competition under the harshest conditions, without fail–and the Performance Eyewear line has been no different,” said Zach Bird, Product Line Manager for Leupold & Stevens, Inc. “The Payload, Refuge, and Cheyenne designs ensure that hunters, anglers, and outdoorsmen and women everywhere have a set of Leupold Performance Eyewear that meet their needs and personal style.”
The Payload was designed for anglers and outdoorsmen who live life on the water. Featuring Lens Ventilation, the Payload maintains a clear image while eliminating glare, helping you see past the water’s surface to what lies beneath. Combine that with wrap-around, ANSI Z87.1+ certified frames and ballistic-rated lenses, and you’ve got unmatched protection and clarity that every outdoor athlete demands.
Built for action and adventure, the Refuge has all the rugged features of its bigger brother, the Becnara, but in a sleek new style. The slightly smaller frame makes the Refuge as fashionable as it is functional. Polarized and incredibly clear; they are guaranteed to look great around town and always outperform on the trail.
The Cheyenne features a low-profile frame that makes it the perfect option for hunters and shooters with smaller faces. Its full wrap design offers complete protection from the elements, while maintaining maximum visibility and airflow. If you want eyewear that looks and feels great without sacrificing safety, the Cheyenne is the pair for you.
All three new styles share numerous top-of-the-line features like In-Fused polarized lenses, which eliminate glare and keep your eyes fresh whether you’re on the water or in the field. Leupold’s Guard-ion hydrophobic coating sheds dirt, water, and fingerprints for a clear, crisp image, while Diamondcoat-hardened lenses reduce surface scratches. A no-slip bridge design provides all day comfort with soft-touch rubber bridge pads. Daylight Max technology, meanwhile, provides complete UV protection for optimal performance in any environment.
All Leupold Performance Eyewear frames are designed, machined, and assembled in the USA.
