Veteran Founded VYPR Ballistic Becoming The Preferred Eyewear Of South Florida Tactical Stores


PRLog (Press Release) - Jan. 29, 2014 - MARGATE, Fla. -- Decorated Army Staff Sergeant Mac Verdi served two tours of duty in Iraq with the 101st Military Police Company Air Assault and the 506TH Regimental Combat Team Brigade Troops Battalion. With combat injuries forcing SSG Verdi to retire from the service with a disability, he leaned on his entrepreneurial spirit and military connections to create a brand of premium eyewear for tactical, sport and safety applications.

Today VYPR Ballistic sunglasses are showcased in the highest volume tactical dealers in Broward, Dade & Palm Beach Counties. Stores include National Armory-Pompano Beach, K&W Gunworks-Delray Beach, Action Firearms-Ft. Lauderdale, Florida Armory-Miami and Florida Gun Center-Davie & Hialeah.  VYPR Ballistic Founder Mac Verdi said “The response we are getting from area retailers is strong.  They appreciate we are a Florida native company with military roots and superior product for their customers.”  Verdi continued to say “we expect to add dozens more dealers over the next few weeks as we plug into distribution throughout the Southeast and Texas.”  In addition to dealer sales, VYPR Ballistic sunglasses are available for purchase on their website and in person at regional gun shows where they exhibit.

VYPR Ballistic frames are now being manufactured in Italy with plans to introduce Made In the USA versions in late 2014.  A noteworthy feature of the VYPR Ballistic collection is the optic technology.  The 2.2 millimeter IMPACTO lens system by Carl Zeiss Vision is 6 times the strength of standard safety glasses while actively repelling dirt, oil, and liquids. Partner and product expert Paul Dudley said “The orders on this project were loud and clear.  Create the best mil spec frame & lens package on the planet and that’s exactly what we did.”  Prior to VYPR Ballistic, Dudley served as Director for a Varese Italy factory where he developed collections for high profile surf, military, motorsport, law enforcement and action sport sunglass labels.

In January VYPR Ballistic became the exclusive eyewear sponsor of the All Veteran Parachute Team, a group of elite military skydivers with a mission of providing therapy for injured soldiers.  In addition VYPR Ballistic supports the Kilimanjaro Warriors, a collection of wounded service men and women embarking on an expedition to reach the peak of Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania this February 10th.  On the commercial sponsorship side VYPR Ballistic is scheduled to announce a new NASCAR race team partner at the 2014 Daytona 500 next month in Daytona Beach, Florida.
