Edge has cor­nered the mar­ket on mak­ing in­dus­trial safety glasses that are also good-look­ing tac­ti­cal and fash­ion glasses. They’re tested to be in com­pli­ance with ANSI Z87.1+2010 and MCEPS GL-PD 10-12 (that’s a lot of num­bers). What it means is that the glasses must be able to sur­vive a 17.6-ounce spike dropped 50 inches; a 1.56-ounce weighted nee­dle dropped 50 inches; a .25inch steel ball trav­el­ing at 150 fps; and a shot­gun blast from 33 feet.

The Hamel is made from a ny­lon frame with soft tem­ple tips for com­fort (and they are ex­tremely com­fort­able) and flat so they don’t in­ter­fere with ear pro­tec­tion. The frames have sleek lines that are good look­ing and give them a trendy ap­pear­ance. The model tested had po­lar­ized cop­per lenses that block out 92 per­cent of light and 99.9 per­cent of UV A, B and C. Good look­ing and tough as nails. (Kind of like a cer­tain ed­i­tor we know ... .)
