Football season is just about back. And that means it’s time to load up on new some gear. Football helmet visors are becoming more and more popular. Not only do they look stylish, but they serve many protective purposes. Many eyeshields offer anti-fog and anti-scratch coatings as well as UV protection. And, of course, they’ll prevent you from getting poked in the eye. Simply attach the visor to the facemask and you’re ready to hit the gridiron.
To be safe, you’ll want to check with your league to see if the visor you plan on getting is allowed to be used as some lenses aren’t approved by high school or various youth leagues. Most clear visors are legal, and this post focuses on those. But if you’re interested in getting a colored or mirrored shield, be safe and check with your coach.
