LuckyGunner Labs Eye Protection Review

We have been following Vuurwapen Blog with Andrew at the helm for quite some time and have come to appreciate his experiential and experimental approach to firearms related topics. The aspects have carried over to a new Labs section at where Andrew provides testing on different gun related products along with debunking myths and providing insightful information developed from actual testing and life experiences.

The latest focus at the LuckyGunner Labs covers shooting eyewear and what to look for when providing protection to one of the most important sensory organs in your every day life. We provided a quick preview below that provides a quick summation of an extensive overview on the topic.

  1. Thanks for the re-post of Andrew’s very informative test results and video.

    As Lucky Gunner Labs do a great job of pointing out, polycarbonate lenses become increasingly brittle over time, relative mostly to the amount of their exposure to sunlight/UV radiation. The take-away, reiterated: if you own eye protection of older or indeterminate age, and/or your eye pro is of previous individual ownership, and you plan to use it in situations where high-velocity threats are a possibility: inspect it carefully for lens crazing, hazing, yellowing, or any other sign of aging or wear. Never put a questionable product into use.

    This is one very important reason why ESS does not recommend purchasing our products through Military Surplus or other after-market sales channels. A product’s history relative to its environment and its physical wear can vary so widely that the only sensible action is to err on the side of caution, for the sake of your health and eyesight.

    I can be reached at if anyone has further questions. Our full line of MIL SPEC & ANSI Z87.1-2010 rated eye pro can be viewed at, or at our main social media venue,

    Thanks for helping in the fight to protect eyes,
