These JSDF shades have apparently been endorsed by the Japanese military because they won't fracture even if struck at 106mph by a 6.5mm (0.3-inch) diameter object. Not quite bulletproof, but the picture looks cool.

The Japan Trend Shop also says the 2mm-thick lenses wouldn't shatter, even if a 500g 1.1-pound shaft of iron is dropped on them from 4 feet. You know, for those times when you escape the clinches of some evil mastermind at the last minute. I guess I'll give them the benefit of the doubt, but it still kinda sounds like they're just pulling numbers out of the air.


If you're in the market for a pair of super-rugged glasses, these puppies will only set you back $317. Yikes. [Japan Trend Shop via DVICE]
