ESS - help identifying model name

Postby NeCtRiCkS » Wed Apr 23, 2014 10:38 am

Hi, my friends.
I need some help to identify my ESS goggle. I bought it used, from an eBay surplus-seller, and it was described as "ESS Low Profile" in the announcement. I bought thinking it was a Profile NVG, as I've never heard of Low Profile before. When asked, the seller said it was a Low Profile indeed, not NVG, and that their lenses are not interchangeable (you can see they seem a bit larger than NVG's)

I've tried contacting ESS many times and they simply won't reply me.

[I'm sorry for my English. I tried my best to make myself clear].
Thank you so much. Greetings from Brazil! :)

IDing goggles aren't exactly my thing, but those look like NVG's to me.

If you could get a picture of the top view (and possibly add a common item like a coin or similar) it would be a bit easier to tell, but those look like Profile NVGs that I run. They also look to be in surprisingly good condition considering they are surplus. The surplus profiles I got were worn way more than those.

One other possibility is that they are the ESS Profile Asian-fit goggles. Same as the regular profile NVGs, but smaller.

I actually find them larger than the Profile NVG, not smaller. Anyways,I understand you thought that as there's no reference of size in the picture.

As for its used condition: its lenses are a biiiit scratched, it has some tiny holes/cuts in its "Full-Perimeter Filtered Ventilation" foam. It also has no "OpFoam™ Face Padding" on it; I believe it unglued and fell apart.

Anyways, I'm quite sure it's not a counterfeit product as I was starting to think; but it has those genuine ESS' smallest details, such as "Right"/"Left" on its strap tabs, perfectly-cut holes in its internal etc.
That makes me quite happy already haha.

I've also found an ESS retailer in Brazil, so I'll try to test their lenses.
Thank you so much, guys, for your reply! :)

as meaning that the ESS profiles are a bit larger than your goggles are... :lol:
