I'm on the market for better eye protection, and face wear. I'm thinking Revision Desert Locusts, but I wanted to get the forum's opinion on what they use to protect their eyes and their face.

Please chime in.

I use the Revision Desert Locust goggles.  They will definitely stop just about anything you could get hit in the face with.  TLSFX grenade shards, bbs, you name it.  Rip/cut out the foam over the vents around them though.  That reduced the fogging a great deal for me.  They still do fog a little sometimes which is a real pain but it's a rare occurrence.  The desert flakjak goggles are also pretty good I have those as well.  I had some trouble with them fogging at first but if you take out all the black pieces they don't fog at all. Although then you have openings for stuff to get in so I put the top two back in.  I always wear a green head wrap with whatever I'm using.  You could also look into getting good glasses like Wileys or Oakley Radars.  The Oakleys are pretty expensive though.

I just got these:

I haven't fielded them yet. My teammate has been using them for quite sometime. They are very cheap. He has some nicks in them from hits, but so do my ess goggles. They are vented too. The metal half masks seem to go pretty well with them.

I also got the smith optics boogie... whatever they are called.  They are similar, but in some ways not as good. The lenses in the x power glasses bend to your face. The smith optics are more rigid. The flexibility helps with fitting the metal half masks.

At any rate, for $10 they are worth checking out.

In all honesty, if you want to avoid the fogging problem completely just get a fairly good pair of ballistic glasses.  Of course my mother will never let me get away with your average pair of glasses because she's an optometrist haha.  Maybe I can convince her to get a custom pair made for me or something :)

I used to wear a pair of steel mesh goggles. Cant remember what brand or where i got them from. But they're lightweight, impossible (literally) to fog up, and have taken a good beating. Loved them.

I need full seal goggles... something that is compliant with OLCMSS. Akira, so there is no fan in these Recon goggles by Save Phace? I'm skeptic, just like yourself, as I too have one of their normal full face masks and they absolutely suck-- in terms of fogging. Protection; they are great. What mesh mask are you wearing in the video?

Those goggles are amazing and don't need a fan at all, also that's a custom (paint and straps) TMC Mesh.

Full face I run a Save Phace Lazarud with a thermal clear visor. Works well, the only thing that fogs is my glasses >_<

I bought some Revision bullet ant goggles a while ago, but I found myself using yellow shooting glasses more often for better visibility and less fog. Then I ran a gas mask for a long time, which is actually the best fog control I've ever had, but I don't like not being able to use my sights/optics. So I went ahead and got some Revision hellfly glasses with yellow prescription lenses, this way I'll have perfect vision and enhanced color detection in the woods. So far they've been awesome, but man do they cost a pretty penny with those custom lenses.

Yea, I got a pair of ESS Turbo Fan goggles and a pair of ESS Ice shooting glasses. Although it's a tight fit, I can wear my prescription glasses while using the Turbo fan. The trick with the ESS goggles is low profile glasses that hug you temple / side and can also flex.

ESS Turbofan goggles, You will never need to worry about fogging or damage. They are an investment but truly worth it.
