Frustration-free Safety Glasses
The lenses don’t attract dust and resist scratches.
I recently picked up a three-pack of 3M SecureFit safety glasses for $20. I don’t look good in them (I wouldn’t look good wrapped in thousand dollar bills), but unlike every other pair of goggles or safety glasses I’ve tried, these work well. They don’t fall off my face or give me a headache from a poor fit. Of the three pairs included in the set that I purchased, the indoor/outdoor lightly tinted “mirror” pair is my favorite. While there’s an air of Bono in how they look, I like them more for their utility in the sun. The reflective lenses knock down glare without being dark, which is great when I’m making cuts outside and then bringing the pieces indoors. This leads me to the second — and primary — reason why I like these glasses: I forget they’re there. The lenses don’t attract dust, and somehow they stay free of sweat and grease from my eyelashes. They’re also amazingly scratch resistant. But most important, these glasses are so comfortable I forget I’m wearing them. Isn’t that what you really want from safety glasses?
