Japan Self-Defense Force Sunglasses Know How To Take A Hit

japan-self-defense-force-sunglasses-1

By Chris Scott Barr

How many of you have accidentally busted a pair of your favorite sunglasses? Provided I don’t lose them first, it usually only takes a good two or three months before some accident befalls them. It would be nice to have a pair that could really stand up to a beating. These Japan Self-Defense Force Sunglasses might just do the trick.

These glasses are officially endorsed by the Japanese military due to their keen ability to withstand gratuitous amounts force. The lenses will not shatter if struck with a .3” object traveling at 106mph. Granted, that’s not quite enough to stop a bullet as depicted in their ad, but it’s impressive nonetheless. The frames themselves are made from TPR/TR90, which should be strong enough to take a bit of a beating themselves. At $317 a pair, I’d highly suggest not misplacing these.

    i will lose this in a heart beat. I'll lose my head if it wasnt attached to my torso.

    Every action has an equal and opposite reaction. Meaning, your face will not be in such good shape after a 106mph impact. I guess it doesn't matter as long as the glasses survive.

    Wow! Thant's interesting as my head is attached to my neck.

    Since the entire cartridge is depicted in their ad it must have been thrown, not fired. I’d wager that this might be accurate. Now if it only showed the bullet without the case…

    The ad is cool, but I don't see me dropping that much money on glasses. Now they have to make helmets and other parts with material similar/better. Future soldiers!

    Last I checked the bullet actually leaves the case. Really a beginners mistake there.

    SNORT! :) (And I utter this as someone who lives in a country with similarly strict gun laws as the Japanese, and who has never even touched or seen a real gun.)

    I have absolutely no doubt that the bullet in the advert will be stopped.

    (Given the fact that it's still sticking in a complete cartridge that has not been fired…)
