I needed to order some Sugru from Amazon with same-day delivery ($17 for an 8-pack), but needed a few more eligible items to break the threshold for free shipping. Otherwise there would have been a $5.99 fee.
I’ve had another pair of Dewalt Concealer safety goggles go bad on me, where some kind of coating flakes off certain areas of the lens, so I ordered a replacement.
I wrote about and recommended these safety goggles a number of times, most recently in my Best Safety Goggles post.
The last time I ordered them, they arrived in different packaging. This time too, they arrived in a box.
What the heck, made in Taiwan? Seriously? The last I checked, they were made in the USA. I noted this in my review back in 2010. I don’t think I was wrong, so I guess the country of origin changed.
Radians’ Cloak goggles cost a few dollars more. Could it be that the Radians version is made in the USA and the Dewalt version in Taiwan? Radians makes these for Dewalt.
I’m not very annoyed by this, just surprised.
I’ll be checking out the Uvex Stealth ($12 via Amazon), since my other favorite goggles pick, the Uvex Flex Seal aren’t available for quick shipping. Maybe I’ll check my usual industrial suppliers next.
If you’ve bought a new pair of Radians Cloak glasses, are they still made in the USA, or has their production been moved to Taiwan as well?
