The US military has a set a high standard for ballistic resistant eye-wear and these ESS Crossbow glasses are up to the task. So much so, the US Marine Corps uses this model exclusively.
The Crossbow series has many features - the main one being its interchangeable frame. You can add different coloured lenses, change the nose piece for better comfort or to add prescription frames (not included). All of these changes are possible due to a quick release lever located in the centre of the frame. Apart from the lens' amazing ballistic resistant capabilities is the protective coatings it comes equipped with. The front of the lens has a scratch resistant coating while the inside has an all important anti-fog coating to help maintain a clear sight picture. All of this comes on a strong lightweight Tri-Tech™ frame which is comfortable to wear.
Weather your on the range, hunting, airsofting or cycling, the ESS Crossbow series will keep your eyes safe.

Anti-fog helps but is not perfect, if you are wearing a face-mask long term, these will still fog up, but takes longer to fog up than any other glasses I have tested.
Works well, my ones lasted almost 2 years of everyday use and abuse before the nose comfort clip came off. I could probably glues this back on but I am just about to purchase another pair anyway, this way I will have other spare parts! Love it.
I purchased the ESS crossbows for work (carpentry) and i couldnt be happier with my purchase. i have had them for a few months now wearing them everyday. Not only are they stylish and cheap but they do a great job of protecting your eyes from dust and debris. I love how easy it is to remove and clean the lens. The only thing that makes this review a 4 star is the standard frames are a tiny bit chunky for earmuffs and break the seal slightly. i know they make a slim profile set for use with ear pro but if the stock ones were just a little slimmer they would be ideal.
Would, and probably will, buy again.
