I know this is kind of random but are Oakley sunglasses bullet-proof? I've heard rumours that the lenses are the same quality of safety glasses. Does anyone know anything about this?

I'm fairly certain that they're all made using polycarbonate lenses, the same plastic used for safety glasses. With the exception of "ballistic glasses" I wouldn't rely upon them for safety although it is better than nothing.


The only Oakleys that will work as Safety Glasses are the Oakley that are approved as Safety Glasses - sorry guys, the sunglasses you wear out in the yard will not cut it if hit with a paint ball. Look for the approval stamp (Z87 in Canada) on the frames and or lenses. Both must be approved to be considered safety glasses!

Hope this helps end the falicy over oakleys. (by the way, yes they do use polycarbonate in their lenses)

Have a safe day!
