Panther Series - Pilla Sport

Panther Series

The original, but better than ever.

The Panther System is the result of our collaboration with world champion George Digweed and world champion Max Michel. We engineered the first generation of this frame system back in 2001 and the design directive from George was quite simple, “create a pair of glasses that is like not wearing a pair of glasses.”


Sweat band

The Panther Series has a very soft rubber sweat bar that helps provide venting and enhancing air flow on the back of the lens. We introduced this feature to help reduce steaming of the lens backside and with the combination of our new “Ice” lens coating science the effectiveness is quite stout.

Interchangeable Frames

Panther Temples come in two different types; Fixed Geometry and Fully Adjustable using our exclusive Copa Hinge technology. Both temple types are made of high performance rubber compounds, titanium and carbon fiber. The temples in an outlaw snap on and off the sides of the lens mask for ease of changing to the desired lens filter.

Temple Attachment

The Panther snap system is called Snap Tech. This is a technology we engineered over 25 years ago and has been the standard on the world stage for shooting glasses. The 3 snap system provides a significant advantage over all sports glasses – the ease of changing the lens without putting your fingers on the lens. Finger prints on a lens is the last thing as an athlete you want. The Panther system provides a quick and easy snap on snap off system to change the lenses.


The nose piece fit to a new Panther uses a single saddle made of high performance silicone and provides a very comfortable wear while planting the glasses on the face withstanding a high activity athletic experience or firearm recoil.

X6 Curve

This is a Base 6 Wrap lens which is a wider glass offering for athletes looking for a more generous fit. We classify this as medium to large sizing. Average head size, men weighing over 200 pounds and taller than 6 foot.

X7 Curve

This is a Base 7 high wrap lens. This lens design wraps around the face tighter making the fit smaller than the Panther X6. This is a great fit for those that require a more narrow design and would like more peripheral coverage. We classify this as small to medium. Narrow face features, women, and men under 6 foot weighing under 185 pounds.

Interchangeable lenses

The panther versions come in both a base 6 and base 7 model to provide optimal fit. The Panther X7 offers more wrap to the glasses thus fits smaller than the Panther X6. All our lens technology uses our latest technical achievement in ZEISS “ICE” lenses with Chromashift and Infra Red lens science. All Zeiss Pilla lenses have a high performance anti-reflective Zeiss coating on the lens. Our lenses must meet a very stringent specification to wear the Zeiss certification.

Frame Type

The Panther is offered in two different mask base curves and two different styles – A “post” (P) and “No Post” (NP) version. The Post version has a fully adjustable nose piece to raise and lower the glasses on the face. The no post version has a fixed nose attached to the lens. Both versions provide a visual experience that has no visual interruption.
