The Elvex XTS is a solid value. It does the job and also has some style unlike other similar priced safety glasses. My guys approve of them and that is good enough for my liking.
Whenever I place an order with AM Leonard I order several pairs of the clear and the grey ones so I always have some everywhere I work (truck/ my garden/tool shop). The clears are great when it's getting dark or cloudy and I need to finish weedeating client lawns. The clears are also a must-have for cutting stone or metal. Since I get glare headaches without sunglasses, I also take a grey and a clear when I bicycle. I really like that they are rimmed so they don't cut into face. Once I was at one of the wholesale clubs and was going to treat myself to a pair of $80 designer shades and realized they weren't that much cooler than the Elvex glasses I'd been using for years. Lastly, they're inexpensive but eye surgery is not.
I have bought this line of glasses for years now. I have tried other safety glasses and they just don't hold up like the Elvex XTS. Comfortable, stylist, scratch resistent and among the most important of all they protect.
One of the best stylish, close fitting, side protection pair of safety glasses out there hands down!!! The town I work for went through many different types of safety glasses until now! These glasses are great for tree work and weed wacking. All other glasses got scratched within hours or days before but these can take small rocks, wood chips and debris no problem, not a scratch! They provide close fitting protection as well as side protection keeping away debris, wood chips and dust away from your eyes! No more flushing out debris with water after the toughest work day! Clear glasses great for night work involving chain saws during storms. The only complaint I would have is to offer mirrored in other frame colors besides red! Try silver or black frames with mirrored or blue mirrored please!
I priced similiar glasses at [other stores] but even factoring in s/h from A.M. Leonard these glasses are a great price! I bought 4 pair, 2 tinted and 2 clear for my husband and I. These are light weight, comfortable and are more likely to be worn since they even look good!!
