Sunglasses Survive airsoft?

Postby grant.94 » Sun Jul 13, 2014 8:11 pm

Does anyone know if Costa Del Mar Sunglasses can survive airsoft bbs? I would love to use them when I play but don't want to risk destroying them.

I wouldn't trust them as far as I could throw them, but I've also heard reports of Oakley glasses being ANSI rated, so who really knows. They're really nice, really expensive sunglasses, which means I'm unlikely to want to use them for this anyway.

You only get 2 eyes. Remember that when you make your decision.

I picked up a pair of ESS ICE shooting glasses to use as my sunglasses as well as my eyepro when playing. $50 well spent.

Oakley glasses will work, I know it from experience, the ess glasses work just as we'll and are issued to military personal.

Late as eff but Oakleys, Ess and Wilex are all good to go and are military rated for eye protection...The ess are not my preferred ones but they are only $40 bucks or so.
