Analog night vision goggles were designed for the military,
first for pilots of helicopters, so they could fly in the dark and
engage targets, and later on for the infantry. The definition of night
vision goggles is that they can be mounted on a helmet, and be used without a need to hold them. Because of that, the magnification has to be 1x.
The military versions
of night vision goggles are very small, lightweight and compact, and
normally they have small objective lenses. The field of view is big,
which enables the user to walk, drive and do other things in complete darkness.

Gen3 goggles truly do turn night into day. Though they're pricey, your
vision will never be compromised by a sudden flash or burst of bright
light. Trust us on this one - if keeping safe depends on keeping your
eyes on a potentially hostile target, these will be the cheapest pennies
you've ever spent. Of course not everyone needs this
unblinking level of performance. If that describes your situation we've
got plenty of lower priced Gen1+ and Gen2+ night vision goggles that'll
still do a great job of delivering the hands-free night vision
experience that you're looking for.
