Bold lines and purposeful styling embody the Magpul Rift, which was designed for use at work, at home, the range, and all points in between. Its versatile frame was made specifically for the wearer who uses the same glasses for most activities. They’re casual enough for virtually any situation, yet loaded with high performance features a shooter wants.

The Rift’s frame coverage is considerable, and its increased temple height provides substantial side protection from light and debris, making them the perfect frame for brighter days on the water or at the range. The frame is constructed of TR90NZZ and the lenses have been impact-tested and safety rated, providing you with the all-around protection your eyes need with a Z87+ ballistic rating. Generally made to fit medium and large faces, the rubber overmolded nose pads keep them securely in place no matter what you’re up to.

The Rift is durable and incredibly strong, yet comfortable enough to be worn all day, and it’s available with both Polarized and Non-Polarized lenses.


The Pivot is a casual design based on our Explorer model, merging high performance with casual style in a fit that suits small to medium faces. Its lightweight frame, low profile temples, and impact-resistant lens and frame combination are casual enough for everyday use.

The Pivot’s frames are constructed from TR90NZZ, the strongest thermoplastic material available for eyewear and, combined with its impact-resistant lenses, makes them some of the most durable, flexible, and lightweight sunglasses available. Their oleophobic polycarbonate

lenses shed liquid and won’t be degraded by water, sweat, or chemicals. The overmolded anti-slip rubber nose and temple pads prevent slippage, no matter what activity you’re engaged in.

The Pivot comes in a range of polarization, color and mirror options to give you the premium clarity and contrast you need from a great pair of shades, while also supporting many high energy activities in variable light conditions and environments.


Designed to keep up with the most active user, the Magpul Ascent provides high-performance eye protection and all-day comfort while you’re on the move.

With a frame constructed of TR90NZZ and impact-resistant oleophobic lenses, the Ascent has our highest Z87+ ballistic rating. Its lightweight design proves rugged ballistic protection that ensures consistent overall protective coverage. Its tight, eight-base wrap keeps debris out, provides lateral eye and temple protection, and minimizes incoming stray light. The low-profile temples, combined with its over-molded temple and nose pads, keep the Ascent in place and comfortable all day long, even during high tempo and physically demanding activities.

Whether you’re on the range, trail running, working out, or hiking, the Ascent was designed to look good, protect and perform.
