Goggles from GI Sports: SLEEK

Courtesy of propaintball;





Quote:
The Italia brothers who own GI Sports/Vision/Milsim also happen to own OptiCoating, a goggle and lens manufacturing business as well as a EyeTactical, a tactical goggle company. With all of that in mind, ProPaintball insiders wagered that it was only a matter of time until the Italia brothers released a paintball goggle of their own.

Graphics placed on the GI Sports paintball trailer and box art only served to fuel the speculation. Last fall, ProPaintball insiders zeroed in on the the GI Sports & Milsim paintball box art featuring a sneak peak at the new paintball goggles from GI. The goggles pictured in the box art will be officially branded as the GI Vision SLIVER goggle system. Yes, you read that right, S-L-I-V-E-R. Designed and manufactured by Richmond Italia’s goggle company OptiCoating, the new GI Sports goggle systems are said to have great optical clarity and feature a very easy lens replacement system. Read below for a first look at the new paintball gear and goggle systems from GI’s new line, GI VISION.

GI Sports will be unveiling two Goggle systems. The first goggle will be known as the GI SLEEK Vision System. The GI Sleek Vision system features GI’s “3 star” rating, meaning it has been designed for paintball fields and recreational players. This paintball mask will be offered at a lower price point.








(I thought there was a thread about this already, but searched and couldn't find it...)

The sleek look like the higher end version than the Silver, but apperantly that is not the case.

Interesting.

Don't care for either design.

But to each their own.

Tried these on at Training Day 7, this past weekend. They sat super close to my face like my I4's, yet my whole face was covered. The rep did indeed say these len's are based off of Profilers and they are thermal baked.

While similar, VForce has a patent on their lens tabs. Check out the wireframe drawings and you'll notice a series of tabs that differ greatly from the VForce lens. Definitely similar, but no interchangeability (to my knowledge).

While the styling is certainly not for me, I doubt Richmond would put out a second-rate product.

If they're at a reasonable price, I might pick up a pair just to try them out.

IDK the sleek wire frame makes it look exactly like a profiler lense. The sliver is definately different tab though.

No ear padding = no incentive to get rid of my Vforce mask and buy a look-a-like goggle system. My lens can take a shot from a .22, can yours?

Looks like X had sex with Y and they made Z.....give it up you are not original.


I guess it depends on how much they cost? Hopefully they come in cheaper than $90

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
