With Edge Eyewear, You Get What You Pay For
It’s an old expression, isn’t it? “You get what you pay for.” It can be used to imply that when you buy cheap stuff, you get poor quality. But it can also be used to mean just the opposite. Usually, when you pay more, you get more. There is sound reasoning behind this idea. It costs more to design and manufacture a high-quality product, and those costs have to be passed along to the consumer in the form of higher prices. But a smart, well-informed consumer knows that, in the long run, you’ll be better off paying a little more up front to get a high-quality product that will perform at a high level, and will continue to do so for many years. High quality is a good investment.
Unique Features of Edge Eyewear
All Edge Safety Glasses share the same great features: straight temples that don’t pinch, fog-resistant and scratch-resistant polycarbonate lenses that block 99.9% of harmful UVA, UVB and UVC rays, and wraparound frames made of a flexible and durable TR90/Nylon compound. The temple tips and nose pads are covered with TPR, a material that actually increases its grip as it becomes moist or warm, so your safety glasses won’t slide off your nose under hot, sweaty conditions
The people at Edge Eyewear are dedicated to creating safety eyewear of the very highest quality possible. Of course, all Edge Safety Glasses are compliant with the ANSI Z87.1+2010 standards, but they also meet U.S. Military Eyewear Ballistic Impact Resistance Requirements (MIL-PRF 31013 clause 126.96.36.199, MIL-V-43511 clause 3.5.10.)
Did you just glaze over at all the military legalese? Yeah, me too. But here’s what it means. It means that you can shoot a ¼” diameter steel ball, travelling at 660 feet per second, at a pair of Edge Safety Glasses, and the steel ball will not penetrate the eyewear and hit a person in the eye. The frame will remain intact, and the safety lenses will remain unbroken and firmly retained in the frame. That’s pretty convincing evidence that Edge Safety Eyewear will protect your eyes. And you can believe it, because all Edge Eyewear is tested by independent, ANSI-accredited laboratories.
But that’s just the beginning of the story. Edge has engineered their lenses to far exceed ANSI standards for definition clarity, effectively creating “high-definition” lenses in every pair of safety glasses they make. In fact, Edge lenses offer twice the resolution of ordinary safety lenses, and the result is clearer vision and the capability of seeing much finer detail.
The Manipulation of Light
Let’s talk about lenses. Edge offers a choice of high-tech lenses that is unrivaled in the industry. Polarized lenses that eliminate glare. Silver mirror lenses that reflect more light, ideal for bright-light conditions. Lenses with an anti-fog coating that truly repels fog and steam – moisture literally rolls off the lens, maintaining clear vision at all times.
But how about Edge’s Blue Light Filter Lens? It turns out that blue light has a shorter wave length than other light, and when it enters your eye, it focuses too far in front of your retina, causing a blue blur that reduces sharpness of focus and causes eyestrain. But this lens filters out the right amount of blue light, resulting in brighter, sharper vision and greater depth perception - a first for safety glasses.
Here’s another fantastic high-tech lens offered by Edge – the G-15 Lens, first engineered by the U.S. Air Force. The G-15 lens maximizes the transmission of green and yellow light. The result: contrast and image definition are boosted, even in low-light conditions. The G-15 lens also creates a noticeable cooling sensation on the eyes for greater comfort. Edge Eyewear was the first company ever to offer a G-15 lens in safety eyewear.
Here’s one more lens from Edge that manipulates the transmission of light – the Aqua Precision Lens. The Aqua Precision coating was first developed by NASA for astronaut helmet visors and spacecraft windows.
The Aqua Precision lens effectively blocks the transmission of infrared light while greatly reducing excess blue and red light at opposite ends of the spectrum. The result is greater contrast and clarity, especially in the brightest light conditions. Hey, astronaut helmet visors! Pretty cool, huh? And again, Edge Eyewear was the first company ever to offer the Aqua Precision lens coating.

But all this technology would be meaningless without great styling. People care about how they look, and if the glasses are ugly or out of style, few people will wear them, regardless of how fantastic the technology is. The folks at Edge Eyewear recognize this, and they have spent as much time and energy creating great-looking eyewear as they have on the science of light transmission.
I can’t begin to describe all the great styles in eyewear design available from Edge Eyewear here in this blog. But I invite you to visit eSafetyStore.com to check out the Full Line of Fabulous Edge Eyewear. Click Here to go directly to the Edge Eyewear section of eSafetyStore.
Let’s Wrap This Up
So what are we talking about here? We’re talking about the wisdom of a willingness to pay more to get the very best. We’re talking about getting what you pay for. Edge Eyewear may cost more than other brands, but what price do you put on your vision? Is it smart to buy cheap safety glasses that will fail when you need them most, when your vision is threatened? Or do you want to invest in eyewear that will protect your eyes in the most dangerous situations, eyewear that offers breakthrough technologies in lens science, eyewear that offers cutting-edge design in styling that will set you apart from ordinary workers, designs that will allow you to make a statement about who you are and what you believe in.
In the end, I guess that’s up to you.
Lacrosse® Utah Brogue Premium Rubber Overshoes with Chevron Soles
Winter’s coming. All that slush and snow and ice are determined to ruin your best shoes.
Protect your shoes with Utah Brogue Premium Rubber Overshoes from Lacrosse, on sale now at a great price at eSafetyStore.com!
Utah Brogue Overshoes are made of ZXT™ ozone/tear-resistant premium rubber, which won’t tear, rip out or degrade. They’re highly flexible and feature a nylon net lining, so they slip on easily and provide 100% waterproof protection for your shoes.
Ordinary overshoes sometimes aren’t tall enough, so slush can splash over the tops and get down inside your shoes. I hate that! But Utah Brogues are a full 14″ tall, so they’ll keep slush from coming in over the top and getting down inside your shoes. In fact, you can wade through water a foot deep and not get your feet wet!
A diamond cleated chevron outsole provides excellent traction on slippery surfaces, or walking through deep snow. Put your pantlegs down into the overshoes, then use the adjustable top strap to snug up the top of the overshoe to protect the bottom 14″ of your pants. That’s a good idea!
Out with the old, in with the new! We’re getting rid of a bunch of great products to make room for new stuff, so we’re pricing these products to sell quickly! So check out eSafetyStore.com for more great clearance sale deals. Spot the RED BLOWOUT TAG and SAVE!
Warm winter gloves are as important as good warm winter footwear when it comes to outdoor work. Think about it…once those fingers get cold you’re absolutely miserable and those digits take a long time to warm back up. And if your fingers get both cold and wet on the jobsite because your winter work gloves stink, well, you might as well pack up and go home.
Black Stallion Fuzzy Hand Max2 Gloves make sure that cold and wet never happen. That’s because the gloves feature a waterproof inner barrier lining, which keeps dampness from snow or rain on the outside of the glove. The back of the glove is made from a soft polar fleece that feels like a Snuggie for your hand. Seriously, the fleece back is so soft and warm that you’ll want to wear the gloves every day. (Honestly, the awesome polar fleece is loved by everyone here at eSafetyStore.)
The waterproof lining and soft polar fleece back make the Fuzzy Hand Max2 a great winter glove, but wait…there’s more. The premium grain pigskin palm is soft but extremely durable, and it features PVC grip patches on the palm and fingertips. A storm cuff keeps out bad things like wind and snow. And MultiBlend insulation is the proverbial icing on the cake, it ensures warmth for those valuable fingers of yours.
Winter workwear isn’t really worth wearing if it doesn’t keep you warm. Put on a pair of Black Stallion Fuzzy Hand winter gloves before you head to your next jobsite and we think your hands will be just fine.
if you wear size 4x, 5x or 6x, you’ll Save BIG on the 8-in-1 ANSI Class 3 winter Bomber Jacket from polar work tuff!
You know, being a distributor like us, it’s all guess work. We make our best guess about how many jackets we’ll sell, and what sizes, and then we acquire that stock and put it in our warehouse. Well, when it came to the 8-in-1 ANSI Class 3 Winter Bomber Jacket in large sizes – 4X, 5X and 6X – we just guessed wrong!
So now we’re left with a whole bunch of these big-sized 8-in-1 Winter Bomber Jackets, and frankly, we’re sick of looking at them! So we’ve decided to blow them outta here, and we’ve priced them to sell! For once, big guys get a break!
This is a fantastic jacket at full price. At the sale price, it’s simply unbelievable. It’s called an 8-in-1 bomber jacket because it can be worn eight different ways. It’s like those Transformer movies. You can transform this jacket into eight different jackets and vests, depending on what the weather is like.
1. It comes as a warm, waterproof, high-visibility ANSI Class 3 High Visibility Bomber Jacket with a heavy fleece liner that’s also a Class 3 jacket.
2. On warmer days, remove the inner fleece liner’s sleeves (they zip off).
3. If you’re still too warm, remove the whole fleece liner for a lighter weight Class 3 jacket.
4. Remove the outer jacket’s sleeves (they zip off too!) to expose the fleece sleeves for a lightweight jacket that’s still Class 3.
5. Remove the sleeves of both the outer and inner jackets to create a warm, fleece-insulated Class 2 vest.
6. Zip off the outer jacket sleeves and remove the fleece liner entirely for a lightweight Class 2 vest.
7. Wear the liner on its own as a Class 3 fleece jacket.
8. Zip off the liner’s sleeves for a Class 2 fleece vest.
That’s eight ways to wear this jacket, but actually, there is even more, because the jacket comes with a detachable hood that can be snapped onto either the outer jacket or the inner fleece jacket or left off entirely, so that’s four more ways! You’ll never need another hi vis jacket or vest!
The outer jacket is made of heavy-duty, 100% polyester. It has a dual cell phone/ID chest pocket with a clear outer ID pocket and a hook-and-loop flap closure, side slash pockets with black zippers, a dual pen pocket on the left sleeve, and microphone/radio tabs on both shoulders.
The Fleece Liner Jacket has two side slash pockets with gray zippers.
The 8-in-1 ANSI Class 3 Winter Bomber Jacket is available in Fluorescent Orange and Fluorescent Yellow, both with bright silver reflective stripes. Both the outer and inner jacket meet ANSI/ISEA 107-2010 Class 3 standards when worn with sleeves and ANSI/ISEA 107-2010 Class 2 standards when worn as a Vest.
Regular price is $88.00, but now you can buy this jacket at eSafetyStore.com for only $65.00! When you check out and go to your shopping cart, just be sure to enter BOMBER in the “Enter Coupon/Promo Code Here” box to receive your savings! But remember, this sale price is for the 8-in-1 ANSI Class 3 Winter Bomber Jacket in sizes 4X, 5X and 6X only.
**While Supplies Last***
NOTE: BE SURE TO MEASURE YOUR CHEST – these run smaller because of the fleece liner. Give yourself extra room and size UP!
Here’s a great high-visibility sweatshirt from Polar WorkTuff. It’s made of 100% polyester in a bright green/yellow color (some call it lime), with 2″ silver reflective stripes around the torso, up over the shoulders and two around each sleeve. It meets the ANSI Class 3 standard, so it’s among the most visible of all the high-visibility garments you can buy.
I like it because it’s a heavier-weight sweatshirt than most I’ve seen. This gives it a feeling of higher quality, and it’s sure to be one of the warmest sweatshirts out there.
It comes with a drawstring hood, but the hood is attached with snaps, so you can remove it if you want. You can have the “hoodie” look, or you can wear it just as a sweatshirt with no hood. I like having choices.
It’s also got a high-quality zipper down the front and two front slash pockets for keeping your hands warm. Knit ribbed cuffs on the sleeves and a knit ribbed waistband further reinforce the feeling of quality.
It’s machine washable, and it will remain ANSI compliant for up to 25 washings if you follow the care instructions on the label.

For Serious Dog Walkers, Festival Goers or Extreme Outdoor He Man Workers! You need GULPZ – Hi Visibility, Hydration and Cooling All in One. Get them before the next heat wave, hurricane or whatever extreme weather comes your way.
Dehydration and heat stress are partners in crime. Staying hydrated on the jobsite is an absolutely essential for outdoor workers trying to prevent heat stress. Hydration is a key component to workplace safety when summer rolls around.
Fluids keep the cooling system of the body working properly. Electrolyte beverages are extremely good at hydration. Products like Gatorade and Sqwincher replace valuable minerals lost when you sweat. So, making sure that there are plenty of electrolytes on the jobsite is a good idea. And heat exhaustion can sneak up on you, so make sure that you chug the electrolytes before you start feeling thirsty.
Really, taste is a big way to determine the electrolyte beverage that’s right for you. Gatorade contains 110mg of sodium, 30mg of potassium and about 50 calories (8-oz serving). Sqwincher has 47mg of sodium, 53mg of potassium, and 65 calories (8-oz serving). Their both good choice for workplace hydration.
Sometimes you need to bring fluids with you when wandering around a large construction site or road project. This is when a hydration backpack comes in handy. The convenient hydration pack stores up to 70 ounces of water that you wear on your back, kind of like your own personal reservoir. A drinking tube with a bite valve makes spill free drinking possible. The water backpack even comes in a high visibility style.
It doesn’t matter how you hydrate, just make sure you do. Dehydration breeds heat exhaustion and heat stroke, serious workplace safety concerns. Drink up!
We’re located in Menomonee Falls, WI, a suburb of Milwaukee. A friend of mine had an extra ticket to the Brewers – Marlins game at Miller Park on July 4th and asked me if I wanted to go. I said sure, even though the temperature that day was a scorching 99°F! That’s 99° in the shade!
I thought, “Hey, this is a great opportunity to field test one of these ChillOut™ Evaporative Cooling Neckbands from International Enviroguard. It’s 99°. Let’s see how well this thing works.”
So we went to the game, and brother, it was hot! Fortunately we were in the shade, so we didn’t die.
I brought a ChillOut Neckband for myself and one for my friend. Before going to our seats, we took them into a men’s restroom and soaked them in cold water, as the instructions say. Then we put them on and headed for our seats.
I discovered something very interesting about how these evaporative cooling products work. Of course, basically they work through the process of evaporation. When water evaporates, it has a cooling effect. That’s why the human body sweats when it gets hot. Your sweat evaporates from your skin and cools you off. So as the water in the ChillOut Neckband evaporates, the neckband will make you feel cooler.
But here’s what happened. When I first put the ChillOut Neckband on, right after soaking it in cold water, it of course felt cold on my neck. I thought, “Wow, that feels great!” But 15 minutes later I noticed that the neckband had warmed up to the ambient temperature – that is, the temperature of my neck and of the day – 99°. It was just as hot as everything else that day! So I thought, “Ah, this thing doesn’t work.”
I was disappointed, but I left it on and promptly forgot about it.
Then about 15 minutes later I reached up and touched the neckband – and it was COOL! It was WORKING! It was then I realized that the evaporation process needs a little time to kick in. In order for the neckband to work, you’ve got to give the water in it a chance to start evaporating. Only then will it feel cool and do the job it was designed to do.
Best of all, once the evaporation process began, the ChillOut Neckband remained cool to the touch for a couple of hours as it continued to cool my neck, and to help cool off the rest of me. Around the fifth inning I went back up to the men’s restroom and resoaked the neckband. That recharged it, and it was still working as we were trying to find our car in the parking lot wilderness after the game.
The ChillOut Neckband is especially effective when worn around the neck because it is laying on the skin right over both of your carotid arteries. These are two of the largest arteries in your circulatory system, major pipelines of blood that pass close to the skin on either side of your neck. The cooling ChillOut Neckband cools your carotid arteries, which in turn cool the blood passing through them at that point. That cool blood continues on and circulates throughout your body, helping to lower your core temperature and just generally make you feel cooler.
So here’s the result of my field test of the ChillOut Evaporative Cooling Neckband. Even though it was 99° in the shade that day, I felt pretty comfortable. I’ve got to say that once the evaporation process got started, the ChillOut Neckband worked exactly as advertised.
Oh, one more result. The Brewers lost.

Wow, what a summer! Record heat waves throughout the country, and a spike in cases of heat stress, heat exhaustion, even heat stroke. Fortunately, there’s a product that can help: Chill-Its® Evaporative Cooling Bandanas from Ergodyne®.
These bandanas use The Science of Evaporation to create a cooling effect
that helps to cool off outdoor workers on these hot summer days. Just soak one in cold water for a minute or two. An advanced PVA material built into the bandana absorbs and holds a large amount of water, which then begins to evaporate away, cooling the wearer as it does. This cooling effect lasts for hours, and it can be easily reactivated simply by resoaking the bandana in cold water. In fact, a Chill-Its Bandana can be resoaked and reused hundreds of times.
Chill-Its Evaporative Cooling Bandanas come in a number of different colors and designs, from Cowboy Red and Blue to Hi Vis Lime Green and even the Stars and Stripes of Old GLory. They are indispensible for folks who work outside in the hot summer sun, folks who are at risk for heat stress, heat stroke, even sun stroke.
So don’t take any chances in this heat. Get yourself a Chill-Its Evaporative Cooling Bandana from Ergodyne and be cool. You can find them at eSafetyStore.com. Click Here to go right to the page.
