Champion introduced three new styles of shooting glasses in the recently launched line of military-grade protective eyewear.
There are two standards for measuring the level of protection that eyewear delivers: the commercial ANSI Z87.1+ standard and the military MIL-PRF-31013 220.127.116.11 standard. Most commercial shooting glasses meet only the ANSI standard, which will protect against debris moving at 150 fps.
The military standard is a requirement that the eyewear stop shrapnel moving at 650 fps. Eye protection meeting the higher standard offers a higher degree of safety, but also tends to be more expensive.
Champion’s new eyewear meets the military standard, but keeps prices affordable: $9.95 – 20.95 (MSRP) depending on model.
