This video is courtesy of ESS, makers of ballistic eye wear. Many of you have or have heard about ANSI-rated ballistic safety glasses for shooting and recreation. While ANSI-rated lenses are tough and designed to protect your eyes, the military uses a more extreme ballistic test for products that might make it to the battlefield. Check out this cool slow-motion video that demonstrates a portion of the military testing and see how each lens holds up. You might be surprised!

ESS just launched a new ballistic sunglass, the Crowbar. The Crowbar series is military rated, just like the ESS lenses shot in the video.
