Don’t know since work paid for them.
What OD rating does it have throughout that range ?Old thread but I had to bring in my glasses from my work truck for an audit and thought I'd share what I use.
Mine are Glendale LOTG-DIODE TEL. Looks like they cover 804nm-1755nm which covers all the wavelengths I would encounter during a typical working day.
I'm not sure I'd trust any of what those companies sell.Alibaba, Ali Express, and Banggood.com all sell protective eyewear for various wavelengths of lasers.
Also Alibaba and AliExpress both sell powerful blue and green lasers if you want to have some fun. Just use care and always wear your eye protection!
Tks & IMO 3.0 is mediocre protection for 905nm exposure in this little hobby of ours. If you're a 'Tester' (a/k/a Shooter) of Lidar defense systems, your glasses are unacceptable.
The danger isn't from the lidar beam that comes back from the gun, it's from the jammers shooting hundreds of pulses back to the gun/shooter.You know, in thinking about leveraging a lidar gun in its intended use case, I’m not sure I’ve ever seen traffic enforcement wearing special eye protection when using them and clearly drivers aren’t expected to do so.
I realize in typical use cases drivers are hit only briefly, which helps reduce risk, while during our testing we might endure prolonged exposure. But as the person operating the lidar gun, it seems the parameters of use aren’t markedly different, right? Whether you’re shooting one car repeatedly or 100 different cars, isn’t the outcome for the shooter essentially the same?

Found the specs for these $10 pair. Seems to be what we need.

Eyesight is important.
While all the jammers are technically eyesafe (minus LE10) a few of us have experienced some unpleasant symptoms after a long meet. Myself, mrkookm, and snoopy have all purchased these glasses and are happy with the quality. (correct me if I'm wrong guys)
What did you compare them to?Not sure how scientific this testing was but......
I use a night vision scope to see the beam pattern on a wall. When shooting thru the Pyramex V2G goggles, the beam was dimmed significantly.
When trying to view the beam on a $140 ThorLabs IR viewing card I could barely detect it. Thru the goggles, nothing.
Found them on amazon prime as well in case someone doesn't want to use a sketchy website tho probably legit merchant, only $5 more really https://www.amazon.com/dp/B003UUB85S/?tag=rdf0cd0c-20
