Gunnar 6-Siege Ash Edition – Designed to Reduce Eye Strain

Gunnar 6-Siege Ash Edition – Designed to Reduce Eye Strain

The Gunnar 6-Siege Ash Edition glasses offer a great pair of lenses and a cool variety of accessories that pay tribute to Ash’s character in Tom Clancy’s Rainbow 6 Siege. However, the glasses are uncomfortable due to their curved frame and awkward nose pads. Also, for a $99 product ($249 with prescription), you would expect more than a basic plastic frame with no temple tips.

Not every gaming display has intuitive blue-light filters to shield your eyes from potentially harmful artificial light, so we’re busting out the Gunnar 6-Siege Ash Edition gaming glasses which are designed to reduce eye strain. I was excited to get these in the mail to test them out, but ultimately, I was left disappointed.

If you’re looking to buy the Gunnar 6-Siege Ash Edition glasses as a collector’s item, go for it. Otherwise, avoid these glasses if you’re looking for something not only usable but also comfortable.

Gunnar 6-Siege Ash Edition price and configuration options
The Gunnar 6-Siege Ash Edition gaming glasses start at $99 and come with an Onyx frame and Amber BLPF 65-tinted lenses (the BLPF scale measures lens protection for the eye against artificial blue light — the higher the better).

The set I have are prescription glasses, which start at $249 and come with the same Onyx frame and Amber tint. However, you can choose the tint at checkout. You get the choice between Clear BLPF 35, Amber BLPF 65, Amber Max BLPF 98, Clear-Transitions BLPF 35/90 and Amber-Transitions BLPF 65/90.

Gunnar 6-Siege Ash Edition design
If you’re a fan of Rainbow 6 Siege, you’ll likely appreciate the Gunnar 6-Siege Ash Edition’s overall design, but I don’t think it suits my face very well.

Gunnar 6-Siege Ash Edition gaming glasses review

These glasses feature a semi-rimless frame, so a good chunk of the lenses are unobstructed by bezels. There is a small Gunnar logo in the top-left corner of the left lens, but it’s not noticeable while wearing the glasses. Between the lens is a relatively thick nose bridge that sports two chunky tear-drop-shaped adjustable nose pads protruding from the base. The temples awkwardly curve outward and inward, and feature black Gunnar logos on either side stamped on a glossy silver plate. Unfortunately, the entire frame is made of plastic so it feels cheap in my hands.

As far as the actual size goes, the lens width is 64 millimeters, the frame width is 134mm and the temple length is 126mm. It also weighs 45.4 grams. The set comes with a microfiber cleaning cloth, a microfiber pouch and a carrying case, all of which are themed around Ash from Rainbow 6 Siege. Gunnar 6-Siege Ash Edition comfort
For a pair of glasses that costs $249 (with prescription) and is advertised for gamers, I expected something much more comfortable. The Gunnar 6-Siege Ash Edition is simply not comfortable to wear for long periods of time while gaming.
