I’ve never been able to wear sound protection and safety glasses at the same time in the woodshop. The problem is, if you’re wearing glasses and then add earmuffs, you get pinched at your temples from the pressure on the arm of the glasses. And, the hearing protection isn’t effective because the arm of the glasses breaks the seal between the earmuffs and your ear.

FullPro Protective Gear has combined the two most critical pieces of personal protection in the shop into one product – SoundVision Eye Protection. We tested the Eye Protection Kit with Earmuffs that’s complete with Peltor H9 earmuffs, two pairs of self-adhesive hook-and-loop patches and SoundVision lenses with flexible hook-and-loop straps.

I know; I hear you. “That’s crazy.” I thought so too, until we had them in the shop.
