Vapor Shield is a military grade antifog coating that is impervious to fog. Plenty of glasses claim to be antifog, but Vapor Shield really is. Ideal for Edgy styling sets Dakura Safety Glasses apart from the competition.
- Frame is made of Grilamid TR90, an extremely durable material that’s lightweight, flexible and shatter resistant.
- Wraparound frame design avoids the distortion caused by side shields.
- Unlike competitors’ plastic connectors, all Edge Safety Glasses use screws to attach the temples to the frame to ensure strength and durability.
- Straight temples hold glasses firmly on your face without pinching.
- Temple vents offer cooling ventilation.
- Temple tips and nose pads feature TPR, a soft and pliable material that becomes tacky when moist or warm, as from perspiration, increasing “grip” and reducing slippage.
- Military grade antifog Vapor Shield coating that is impervious to fog.
- Unlike some competitors’ thin, thermal-formed lenses with flat spots, Edge Safety Eyewear exclusively features injection-molded polycarbonate lenses that have the proper curvature to achieve correct optics while being thick enough to pass all the impact tests.
- Edge lenses are tapered to eliminate refraction.
- Edge lenses exceed the ANSI standard for definition clarity, clearly bringing into focus 40 lines on the NBS pattern test. Competing products’ lenses bring into focus only 20 lines.
- Edge polycarbonate lenses are scratch resistant, block 99.9% of UVA, UVB, and UVC rays, and comply with ANSI Z87.1+2010 and Ballistic Military standards.
- Compliant with ANSI Z87.1+ 2010 standards. Meets U.S. Military Eyewear Ballistic Impact Resistance Requirements – MIL-PRF 31013 clause 220.127.116.11, MIL-V-43511 clause 3.5.10.

Antifog is a relative term when it comes to safety glasses. A lot of safety eyewear claims to be antifog, but once the weather warms up, and you start sweating, the lenses steam up like a shower door. And let’s face it, you don’t want to be handling heavy equipment or sharp tools when you’re flying blind. Safety glasses are meant to protect your eyes, not blind you like Luke Skywalker wearing the blast shield (Luke had the benefit of The Force…unfortunately, you don’t).But we’ve found true, actual, legit antifog safety glasses. We’re not kidding. The new Dakura Vapor Shield safety glasses by Edge Safety Eyewear are impervious to fog. The glasses are treated with a military grade anti-fog coating that makes nasty water vapor disappear. If it works for the military, it will work for you. Expect clear vision when wearing these bad boys, which retail for less than 20 bucks.
We added Edge Safety Eyewear to our line of safety glasses a few months ago. We like them largely because they’re well made and they’re cool. (Isn’t style one of the most important options when choosing protective safety glasses?) But they also feature injection-molded polycarbonate lenses that have outstanding optics. Edge safety glasses have protective lenses that exceed the ANSI standard for definition clarity. And Edge glasses are made from Grilamid TR90, which despite sounding like a rare isotope found only in the Swiss Alps, is actually an extremely durable material that’s also very flexible.
So, the bottom line is that Edge makes some cool stuff. And if you want that nasty little problem of eyeglass fogging to go away, give the Dakura Vapor Shield a try (or don’t exert yourself much on the job site).
