Some are made specifically to be blast resistant:
"I am in the US Army stationed at Ft. Myer, VA. Thank you very much for your product as it saved my eyes last month. I had a pair of SI M Frame Hybrids that I bought from the store and was out doing a live fire when my Machine gun blew up on itself and blew back into my face. I suffered some cuts on my face and 3rd degree burns around my eyes as well as my assistant gunner but nothing happened to my eyes thanks to my OAKLEYS. I just wanted to send out a thank you from the guns squad. I will be puchasing another pair here soon, as the ones i had broke when a piece of metal hit them from the 240B that blew up. Thanks once again. "
A: The Oakley Military and Government Sales program is for active duty military, reserve, all government employees including local police, fire, EMS and those holding military/government retiree credentials.
Also any one who works for a company who holds Department of Defense contracts. I got an account when I was working for www.raydon.com, so I can personally vouch for this - Syntak
Teachers also qualify!
Q: What kind of identification do you need?
A: You may submit a copy of your Military/Government ID, business card, or a copy of your pay stub (please feel free to black out any unnecessary information. We just need to see your name and who you work for).
