Read my post on the WARBIRD Pro Fusillade in Tortoise Shell and you’ll know that I like this new brand of eye protection. I value style and function in gear, whether it’s footwear, apparel and even eye protection. Gear in most cases should look good, and it should function in such a way so that it can be used without distracting or irritating the user. I was intrigued to try out the WARBIRD Pro Dead Space Glasses, so I asked the company representative to send me a pair. Similar in styling to the Fusillade, I ordered them in the tortoise shell pattern. The Tortoise Shell design exudes sophistication. The glasses can be ordered in Black, Green, Navy, Tortoise, and Gray matte color.

The Dead Space promises to deliver top-notch performance with added protection, making it a versatile option for both everyday wear and high-risk environments; I believe that the glasses did this.

Let’s start with the design. The Dead Space shares the sleek and modern aesthetic of the Easy Day glasses, ensuring that you look sharp whether you’re running errands in the city or embarking on outdoor adventures. The removable side shields add a practical touch, providing added protection when needed without compromising on style. I love the textured pattern used on the side shields. In the era of customization, personalized eyeglasses have emerged as a popular trend, allowing wearers to imbue their frames with unique touches. From engraved initials to bespoke color combinations, customization options add a touch of exclusivity and individuality to eyewear, transforming them into personal style signatures.

Warbird has done something unique in this space, which is to introduce glasses that are safe to use at the shooting range, but has the elegance found in glasses worn by the likes of Steve McQueen. You don’t have to wear black all the time. But it’s not just about looks – the Dead Space packs a punch in terms of performance. Featuring 4SHADOW lens technology, these glasses offer unparalleled clarity and detail, ensuring that your vision remains sharp and focused in any situation. Whether you’re navigating busy city streets or exploring rugged terrain, the Dead Space has you covered.

Safety is another key consideration, and the Dead Space doesn’t disappoint. With its ANSI Z87.1 safety rating, you can trust that your eyes are well-protected from impacts and debris, giving you peace of mind no matter where your adventures take you. Quality matters greatly when it comes to eyeglasses. Poorly constructed frames and low-grade lenses can pose significant risks to ocular health and overall well-being.  Frames made from cheap materials are prone to breakage, leading to potential eye injuries. Moreover, these materials may contain harmful chemicals or allergens, causing irritation or allergic reactions when in contact with the skin or around the eyes. Ill-fitting or flimsy frames can compromise safety, especially during activities that require heightened visual clarity, such as driving or operating machinery. Inadequate eyewear can impair vision, hindering one’s ability to react quickly and accurately to potential hazards.

Comfort is also paramount, especially during long hours of wear. The Kaiwall™ Bio-based TR90 frame material strikes the perfect balance between durability, lightweight comfort, and environmental sustainability, ensuring that you can wear the Dead Space glasses all day without discomfort. The thin temple design further enhances comfort, especially when used with headphones or ear protection. Eyeglasses are more than just tools for vision correction. Fit matters; Ill-fitting frames can cause discomfort, leaving red marks on the nose, pressing behind the ears, or slipping down the bridge. The Dead Space are well-balanced, light-weight and should fit the average sized face.

Additional features like the co-injected non-toxic rubber nose pad and temple pieces add stability and comfort, while the removable deflector shield provides added shade and impact protection when needed. The vented frames also help manage perspiration, keeping you cool and comfortable even in the heat of the moment.

And let’s not forget about the accessories – the Dead Space comes complete with a zippered protective case with morale patch, quick-release clip, and microfiber drawstring bag, ensuring that your glasses stay safe and secure when not in use. The WARBIRD Pro Dead Space Glasses are a stylish and high-performance option for anyone in search of top-quality eyewear. The Dead Space offers unbeatable protection and style, making it a must-have accessory for adventurers and everyday warriors alike. Highly recommended.
