The AN/PVS-15 has long been a staple for the US Warfighter. The United States Government adopted the PVS-15 due to the rugged design and amazing glass quality. Designed for operators who needed flight grade image quality in an uparmored housing.
The PVS-15 features an articulating housing. The PVS-15 night vision goggle is an amazing choice for a dual tube binocular system when the user has an operational need for articulation adjustment. The user has the ability to run the system with both tubes flipped down or just a single tube flipped down for increased awareness of ambient lighting conditions. The PVS-15 also features an on board IR illuminator for admin tasks.
We recommend PVS-15’s for anyone who may be working in and around vehicles, as well as, confined spaces. Because of the articulation, users have the ability stow their goggles folded back toward the helmet. This reduces the overall footprint of the system when stowed. This aids in increased clearance when entering and exiting a vehicle.
Although PVS-15’s are heavier than some other articulating binocular night vision units on the market. The housings are rock solid and are very rugged in comparison to other articulating options. PVS-15’s are an older design, however, we believe that they are still one of the best options for articulating units today.
