I should have known it was the USPS that screwed up and not the seller after reading the comments here. I contacted her tonight and replacements are on the way. Now I feel bad for my snarky tortoise comment before. Of course since she was good enough to ship me a new pair the other ones will probably show up around Valentine's Day. Oh well I'll send them back to her if they ever show up.
i just saw this thread now. i have had good experience with eagle glasses. i bought 2 pairs on ebay for like 30 bucks a piece, if i remember correctly. guaranteed less than 40. best investment i ever made in safety glasses.
i did a similar test, but only visibility-wise, not actual testing. just put the goggles in front and moved them around so i don't get craters in the glasses like the last one XD and none of the colors shined through. also, when you look at the dot through the glasses, it appears as only a yellow luminescent dot with no color at all, even with a 1watt 445.
i don't know how it compares with burning resistence compared to truly certified goggles, but i'd rather not test how long it takes to make craters in my 70dollar glasses. LMFAO.
so far so good. may not be as good as truly certified glasses, but definitely superior to the crappy ones. maybe i just got random good ones too XD from my experience, definitely a good investment for the price.
Thanks for the link. I just ordered two pair, haven't even started my first build yet, but the thought of going the rest of my life hearing my wife bitch at me in the darkness is a good motivator!
EDIT: Got my glasses I really like they way they fit, and a don't think they feel cheap or weak. I ware safety gasses for 12 hours a day and they are about the same, I think with a little care they should last.
She cut $5 off because I ordered two pair, took two days to ship.
