    More and more I think the people over at SI should be given the reigns of the company. They don't mess around.

    Wireframes That Can Stand Up To An IED - SI Ballistic Crosshair - CD752C85-5056-9F73-1930789897CB15F6.jpg


    Oakley's standard impact protection is a 0.25" ball at 102 MPH to meet ANSI Z87.1

    Military ballistic standards (specifically MIL-PRF-31013) are a 0.15" diameter cylindrical slug at 436 MPH (640ft/s)


    Those are some badass shades.

    To give you an idea of the difference in impact:

    Mil test on the left, standard ANSI on the right (I know, these aren't Oakleys, I'm sorry)
