Notes on the Tippmann Valor Paintball Goggle:

“As part of the company’s ongoing effort to enhance paintball play, Tippmann Sports is proud to introduce its new Valor goggle. The redesigned goggle was developed around three key performance upgrades – improved visual clarity, greater coverage, and enhanced comfort. The most notable feature is the high performance toroidal scratch and fog resistant lens and quick release system. The toroidal lens focuses more light directly onto the eye to provide better clarity in a variety of light conditions, while the quick release system allows for fast and easy lens removal and attachment.

Other features incorporated into Tippmann’s new goggle design, include: extended coverage to protect the chin, jaw and ear; additional ventilation to optimize airflow and reduce fogging; a premium woven strap for ultimate comfort and fit; an adjustable, fitted visor; and the use of compression-molded comfort foam wherever the goggle touches the face. On the rental version, the foam will be incredibly easy to replace, so field owners can simply switch out the foam insert instead of replacing the entire goggle.

The goggle will come in several versions, including: black, U.S. Army camo, Tippmann camo, and a rental version – all sold under the Tippmann and U.S. Army Paintball brands. In addition, this newly-designed goggle will also soon be available in all Tippmann and U.S. Army Paintball PowerPacks, providing a better performing goggle to those players purchasing kits.”

Price: $24.95 for Black, & 39.95 for Camo.

Proudly banned from the NPPL after legitimately winning a 5 on 1. Have since made it a hobby to promote paintball and at the same time make a point to call out paintball industry shenanigans and those that intentionally impede the growth of paintball. Welcome to
