Brass Knuckle® Offers Ultimate in Anti-Fog and Full-Face Protection
Brass Knuckle’s (Alpharetta, GA) Vader Combo is a goggle and face shield in one, with industry-leading BK-Anti-Fog that exceeds the most stringent anti-fog standard. The integrated face shield offers 180-degree peripheral vision and face coverage. Soft conditioned rubber forms a splash barrier. Because the face shield isn’t attached to a hard hat, it provides unprecedented mobility and visibility — the shield goes wherever the wearer’s head goes. The ANSI-rated, military-style splash goggle also includes a durable anti-scratch treatment and is D3 rated for droplet and splash protection. A built-in venting system helps reduce the potential for moisture buildup, helping to maintain clear vision.

- An exclusive patent pending Dualtec™ manifold system with six adjustable air vents and dual speeds allows users to customize their airflow and helps reduce dry eyes and nose.
- A lightweight, low-profile breathing tube attachment is positioned at the bottom of the neck instead of the top of the head, staying flat against the user’s back for unrestricted movement.
- Available High-Definition View technology provides users with a sharp, detailed view at any angle without distortion.
