As I mentioned on Youtube, I'm really surprised at how well the glasses held up. I expected them to get pulverized.

Yes. I thought I'd break them. But they are not goggles for nothing.

High impact is what they're made for really. I remember seeing a picture of safety glasses with a shard of sanding disk sticking out the front. Without the glasses the guy wearing them would have lost his eye for sure.
