i use these. theyre nice and light, and relatively comfortable for long periods of time.
whatever goggles you end up getting, dont mess around, cause your eyes are your most important pieces of equipment.

edit: stupid copy/past error >_<

I recommend Google Chrome :P


Joke aside, I'm using and recommending http://www.airsoftpo...oducts_id=24932
don't know if it is a clone or just renamed Bolle x800, but they don't fog and they are really clear and comfortable. (No fog in -25*C that is ;) )

Edit: Oops, I bought them from Hotspotairsoft.com

Just to let you know, don't try and save money on goggles, buy the strongest ones, even if they cost $2,000.  How much is vision worth?

http://www.combatspo...les.aspx  Arena Flakjak Ballistic Goggles check these out or google it. They're up to military spec but they got recalled for some reason. They're designed to be worn with glasses. Look around, different places sell these things for different prices. Make sure you get the ones that have both the clear and the tinted lenses. I bought a pair on eBay for like $22 and they are really high quality. The goggles are pretty wide to accomodate glasses. Hope this helps. :innocent:

I wear glasses (most people's recommendations on this thread WON'T work over glasses...) and I use the ESS Striker Land Ops goggles in Foliage green
These are specifically designed to be worn over glasses. You also have the option of adding prescription inserts.

The only issue with full goggles is they can fog up in warm/hot weather or when exerting youself. A small mod of adding some quiet low flow 25mm computer fans does wonders, or you can go all out and get these, they ain't cheap but how much are your eyes worth?

Ahhh yes, I tried on my Arena goggles today with my Oakleys and the goggles just sat on top of them and it wasn't very comfortable. Maybe you should wear contacts. :rolleyes: jking

Oh, believe me, I'd LOVE to be able to wear contacts, but my astigmatism and eye "shape" don't lend themselves to contacts... I've tried getting fitted on two seperate occasions in my life with no joy  :thumbsdown:

Anyway, getting off topic...

But, yes, if the OP can wear contacts, that is by far the best solution to open up your choices... and contacts don't fog.

You can walk with a prosthetic leg

You can eat with a prosthetic hand

Hell, you can live with a prosthetic heart valve!


But I can guarantee you, in today's technology, you still can't see with a prosthetic eye

Amen to that. Same reason I spent a boatload of cash on a top 'o the line helmet when I had my motorcycle. I don't think a prosthetic head would work either ;)

They are at par with ESS. Like ESS get the Revison Fan version and a 2 pan Thermal lens.

I've found this thru my local community airsoft forum.  It's a clone of the ESS Turbo Fans.  Not too sure about the quality of it.. because I haven't held one.  But, it looks promising.
