Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by wxray My secret: great bike glasses
I'll have to assume that these glasses work properly as safety glasses since they pass two rated standards. I say that because they are very lightweight -- which is a good thing. Just be aware they are not too good for dust, but that's typical in this style. These protect you from flying screws and nails.
But here's my secret: I use these glasses for biking. For about 1/10th the cost of "cycling glasses", I find these do a great job for that purpose. Shhhh, it is our secret.
Complaints? Maybe that they can fog up if conditions are right in humid conditions. However, I find most glasses do.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LarryBHW glass do what they where intended to do
The glasses do as they should protect my eyes from harm. The yellow tint did surprise me by making things seem brighter. I was actually shocked by that. I have had glasses with a yellow hue before but didn't seem to make things seem brighter.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by goodreason Really Cool Looking Safety Glasses
Functional safety glasses with a yellow tint and molded nose bridge and temple arms, that are fog and scratch resistant.
My wife and I wear safety glasses for almost every project that we do, so to say that they are fog resistant I was somewhat suspect. Having a wood stove that needs emptying more times that I like to mention I put on my dust mask and the Holmes Safety Glasses. Emptied the stove went out side dumped the ashes in the barrel and came back in, mind you the temp was in the 20's, came back in and not once did they fog up. Not with the dust mask on or coming in from the cold to a warmer environment.
The one and only complaint that I have is that if your an eyeglass wearer you can't slip the safety glasses over them. I don't know all the specifics of why and why not, but it should be noted if you do work that requires you to wear your eyeglasses.

Do not fit correctly. Seemed like they were warped.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KenG These glasses are amazing
I put up with those crummy, high school lab reject safety glasses for years, but finally decided to splurge just a bit for better glasses, and the difference is night and day. I forget that I have these on. They never fog up, the never slip, and I swear that I can see better with them than without.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ObjectiveReviewer Incredible Eye Protection
At first I was hesitant with the yello color, because I thought it would make everything look weird. I was pleasantly surprised when I put these on, because the glasses made everything brighter and more crisp. It is like viewing the world in high definition! The glasses protect your eyes from the sun so you don't have to squint, which is really important in Florida.
The fit of the glasses is perfect and leaves no area unprotected and no exposed gaps where particles can sneak in and get in your eye. I wear these when using the leaf blower, mowing, cutting tree limbs, and all other indoor and outdoor projects.
These safety glasses beat the pants off the cheap clear plastic ones that only cost a buck or two. I will probably pick up a pair of these Mike Holms safety glasses for all the DIYers in my family.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MikeB Very comfortable to wear
Over the years I’ve accumulated quite a few pairs of safety glasses. There’s a reason I have so many pairs – they are not comfortable to wear for extended periods and they tend to fog up easily. The Holmes safety glasses address both of these shortcomings. The nose pads are made of soft rubber with a serrated edge to help them stay in place. The temple tips are also made of soft rubber for comfort and the arms are curved so that they hold firmly in place. Plus they are very light-weight. The best feature of all for me is the anti-fog lenses. Not sure how they do this, but these glasses will not fog, period. The only thing I don’t care for is that the Holmes logo is imprinted on one of the lenses. It’s not in the way of your vision, but I still don’t like this. That said these are the first glasses I reach for when working in my shop.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Saber Light up the dark days
When the day is overcast but I still need to see clearly - the advanage of this pair of safety glasses is the yellow tint. They are well made and fit my face well, but still breathe so that they do not fog up. Add to that the yellow tint highlights what I am working on - so if you are working in a darker area you can really see clearer. Not for sunny days - but overcast days or darker areas you will be pleased to have these.
