US Army Polaroid M-1944 Goggles










T/O&Es in November 1944 were calling for the standard use of the M-1944 goggle, and these goggles came into use by ground forces in late 1944/early 1945. However, photos of 752nd tankers do not show this goggle in use until the post-war period. The M-1944 goggle featured a one-piece molded rubber frame, which housed a one-piece lens whose viewing area was considerably larger than that of the Polaroid 1021 model. The frame was held in place by a thick elasticized strap. Like the Polaroid 1021, the M-1944 goggle lenses were also available in a variety of shades for various operating conditions. M-1944 lenses were available in non-polarizing clear, polarizing green, polarizing gray, and non-polarizing red "Dark Adaptation" varieties. M-1944 goggles continued as the standard-issue ground forces goggle into the 1970's, and even today's ground forces goggles are only a slight variation of the M-1944.

Smith Optics Boogie Low Profile Google





Smith Optics Boogie Goggle Kit, Tan
NSN : 4240-01-640-9052










The Smith Optics Boogie Goggle consists of an injection molded rubber frame (one size) with interchangeable polycarbonate lenses. All lenses have been treated with a hard coat on the exterior surface to reduce scratching and an anti-fog coating on the interior surface to reduce fogging. The anti-reflective sleeve reduces glint when the goggle is not in use The Smith Optics Boogie provides ballistic fragmentation protection, and meets ANSI Z87.1-2010 optical and safety requirements. The lens material blocks 99.9% of all UVA and UVB light. This product is NOT UPLC compatible.



ULTRA LOW PROFILE DESIGN

This goggle is designed as our lowest profile goggle, and the lowest profile goggle on the market. When it comes to fitting under night vision systems, the Boogie is unbeatable.


REGULATOR LENS TECHNOLOGY

In low profile goggles, the loss of airspace between the goggle and the user's face doesn't allow for airflow to combat fogging. Smith's patented Regulator Lens Technology solves that issue by allowing airflow to help fight the fog.

Blackhawk BHI Old Gen Woodland Special Ops Holster 9mm Mag Pouch












Description


Blackhawk BHI Old Gen Woodland Special Ops Holster 9mm Mag Pouch

Color: Woodland BDU

This pouch is designed to attach to the top of the Blackhawk BHI Special Ops holster. It looks like it can able be mounted on a belt and worn horizontally. These pouches are pretty rare since they were usually removed from the holsters and lost or thrown out.

This pouch has the first generation Black Hawk Industries (BHI) logo patch. It has the (804) area code so this pouch was produced before 1995 when the Virginia Beach area code changed from (804) to (757).
