    I'm looking for a good set of goggles that I can wear over standard glasses. Something I can use in the shop and driving down dusty roads on the way to the trail.

    Here is what I need:
    1) Must fit over glasses.
    2) Must be safety lenses.
    3) Must seal fairly well (dusty drives)
    4) Must be VERY comfortable so I don't want to take them off in the shop.
    5) Must be vented (without letting dust in).

    Here is what I would like:
    1) Replaceable lenses (may get scratched, overspray, etc.)
    2) Quick change dark lense for plasma?
    3) Not too expensive. /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif
    4) UV Protection?

    Any suggestions on what to get or other things to look for?

    Russ,
    check out snap on's web site snap-on.com They have a wide variety. I'm not positive one pair will work in all circumstances. You could probably make two work for you.

    Well, they fail the "not too expensive" test, but Wiley-X SG-1 glasses/goggles are prescriptionable, lightweight, and interchange between glasses and goggles quickly. I like 'em a LOT...

    I have not found any that fit over glasses very well. For the shop I use a face sheild. Keeps the sparks from the grinder off your face too.

    Look in the paintball catalogues. They must have something.

    Thanks guys, all advice appreciated. The ones Fred posted look promising but it's hard to say from a pic. I tried on some "Spy" goggles tonight when I took my son Christmas shopping. Apparently they are popular with the MX crowd. VERY nice, but $80! /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif Still looking... /forums/images/graemlins/smirk.gif

    I woulda said a good set of UV shooting glasses would be perfect, but you want them semi sealed, which is a problem-

    I would say a paintball halfmask would be your best bet- Some of the old JT line were avaliable without ear/mouth protection. However, they still have holes that dust can get through, and can get costly trying to get an anti fog setup.

    go to a safty store chemical splash goggles, work great we use them at work when near any of the 750 volitile chemicals we have around ( tri-, nitric, sulfuric acids, cyinide ect. ect.) the are very cheap 8-10 bucks, and you can get tintted and non. some good companys will give you frames for persciption glasses. they have no arms but a little clip at the nose, and they fit right in to the goggels. they are seald but anit fog. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
