I use both JT spectra goggles and revisons I change it up when one feels uncomfortable to me but both are by and far strong enough to stop a bb and I always change my lense if they have been hit within 5 feet (Dosen't happen often) cause their my eyes and I want to keep them in my skull

2 - Glasses - EXCEEDS ANSI Z87.1-2010 / EXCEEDS MIL-DTL-43511D, CLAUSE 3.5.10
Goggles - EXCEEDS ANSI Z87.1-2010 / EXCEEDS MIL-DTL-43511D, CLAUSE 3.5.10

3 - Glasses issued w/ docs, Goggles bought straight from revision, came with docs.

4 - Both Revision

What Revision glasses/goggles models are you using? I was checking the Desert Locusts data sheets for spec compliance and I saw your post.

Just got these a little while ago: http://airsoftdepot.ca/catalog/produ...oducts_id=1540 and I'm not wearing them. One the left and right sides of the goggle, there's foam covering 1/4" wide x 1/2" gaps, more than enough space for a bb to pass through. They were cheaper lenses for what was in stock, and I thought they'd be alright but when I got them and noticed the gaps, I put them back in the box. The foam is very thin and soft. A bb will blow right through it with almost no resistance, I'm not risking my eyes wearing them. Not to say the goggles themselves are bad, but the gaps are a safety issue in my opinion.

I have Desert Locusts. I have worn them to one game where goggles were mandatory. I prefer my Sawflys way more.

"PolyCarbonate lens stands 500FPS 0.2bb"

That's very convincing. You think that would hold up in court if they broke? lol

Can't see with a glass eye... YET! However, that's exactly why I bought my ESS. Stranger things have happened than BBs taking out someone's eye.

Can I get this sticky'd?

I've dropped ESS and switched to smith. After Oakley bought ESS quality took a nose dive big time.

I don't have a problem with safety glasses, but here is a few pointers.

- bare minimum, use CSA or ANSI rated lenses

- make sure there is full eye coverage (put your glasses on properly, if you can touch your finger to your eyeball, they fail)

- follow manufacturer's recommendations (if the glasses are struck or scratched, they're finished)

- use a retention strap (I've had mine fall of before, and I've seen several I there's as well

You've also purposely taken your glasses off in a hot zone, captain safety :p

From what I read the updated MCEP GL-PD 10-12 standard supersedes any previous MIL-SPEC standard (ie MIL-DTL-43511D).

Bought a pair of Revision Desert Locus Asian Fit, with Fan of course.

They had a 30% off deal, so ended up being $14x - 16x USD Shipped?

Can't wait to try them out!
