MEMPHIS, TN—November 20, 2012—A recent survey by the National Sporting Goods Association (NSGA) reports amazing growth in female participation in hunting and shooting. According to the NSGA survey, “72 percent more women are hunting with firearms today than just five years ago.” Hunting with a bow and arrow is up 176 percent (thank you Hunger Games!) and shooting with a handgun is up 33 percent.
The survey reports that “3 million women now hunt and over 5 million women enjoy shooting.” To support the growing number of female shooters and hunters, Radians is developing a pink safety line for women that includes eye, ear, and hand protection. Some of the products in the women’s line include:
- X-TREME™ Anti-Fog Women’s Shooting Glass (MSRP $15.49)
- Pink custom molded ear plugs (MSRP $14.99)
- Lowset™ pink passive earmuffs (MSRP $19.99)
- Pink Pro-Amp™ electronic earmuffs (MSRP $99.99)
- Pink Shooter’s kit (shooting glass and earmuff combo (MSRP $24.99)
- Pink Shooting Gloves (available 2013--MSRP $12.99)
When designing the products for women, Radians considers the differences in female anatomy. For example, their eyewear frames for women are 10% smaller than those made for men, providing the perfect size for women. Although the eyewear styles are more feminine, they are fully functional when it comes to meeting and exceeding ANSI Z87.1+ Standards for safety.
