We spent 24 hours on research, videography, and editing, to review the top choices for this wiki. Whether you are on a construction site, dabbling in some at-home DIY projects, or zipping around on an ATV or scooter, make sure to pick up one of these safety face shields to protect yourself from flying debris, splashing liquids, and other hazardous materials. Many are fully adjustable, which allows you to customize the fit or tailor it to whatever activity you're using it for that day. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to support our work. Skip to the best face shield on Amazon.

Editor's Notes

April 09, 2019:

We looked for options that would provide a high level of safety, but we'd like to remind wearers: face shields are usually worn in addition to, rather than instead of, safety spectacles for an even greater degree of protection. Also, most (if not all) ship with protective film covering both sides, so if your visor seems especially foggy, you probably need to remove this film. That said, we still believe that the UVex Bionic and Sellstrom Headgear are top choices. Both are clear and offer enough adjustability to make most wearers completely comfortable. Plus, the Bionic is totally dielectric, so you have no worries in electrical environments. For a lower priced alternative, we'd suggest the Sellstrom Advantage Series or the 3M Ratchet. We also selected an option for those involved in martial arts, the Pro Force Thunder, and one for light-duty protection against the weather, the SA Multipurpose, which is popular with fishers. And, unfortunately, the Salisbury Flash has become tough to find, so we had to remove it.
