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.
