this wont help you for this year's Burn, but for $20 bucks I scored those excellent WWI pilot goggles at Restoration Hardware from their christmas stocking stuffer bin. Definitely form over function, but they look great perched atop your cowboy hat-cat hat, etc.

Generally speaking, I personally found Ski visors a good overall option. Wide peripheral vision, and overall comfort. However, most have at minimum an orange tint, which is kinda dark for night time.

What's great is if the goggles fit right on your face, preferably with some foam along the edge to make a good seal. However, some vents will also help prevent the goggles from steaming up.

I found stuff like "shop" goggles to be uncomfortable, and they steam up for me.

here are a few links I've noted over the years from previous eplaya discussions. There are some with clear lens options, so those would be good at night.

Louise and I have used these for years:
http://www.rddusa.com/product_info.php?products_id=243

They come new (more than the 4 bucks for the used pair shown) with clear and grey lenses. I wear them with contact lenses, and they keep the dust out fine, and Louise likes them because they're made to be worn over glasses, so they fit her fine with her glasses on.

If you wear glasses, be aware the some sport goggle won't fit over them.

Last year we bought goggles at our local (Berkeley, CA) Army Surplus store. If you live in an area that has a lot of burners, then your local store should have them, too. Ours were $10, the weekend before BM2006 - (they're probably $5 the rest of the year!) :roll:

Cheap Goggles

Post by Clar-i-ty » Thu Aug 02, 2007 11:46 pm

Okay, I know some don't prefer this, but I've found the Dollar Tree Shop Goggles work well for us. I have 2 boys, who loose everything, so we go for cheap and replaceable. Even if you do spend money on a pair of ski goggles from the thrift store, it doesn't hurt to have a cheap pair in reserve. Grown-ups loose things too!

I have a set of welding goggles with 4 different lenses from clear to SolX. I find them comfortable and they rarely fog up. Most welding supply stores should have them, or just search "welding goggles" and you may be in luck.

Also, for the big spenders, ski goggles almost always have a replacement option for lenses and often have a "clear" lens for riding in low-light conditions.

.for the really bad dust storms, I like swimming goggles (2 tiny masks over the eyes on an elastic strap). I have a clear set and a dark grey set.

Otherwise I just use sunglasses that fit tight, or my prescription glasses for light dust.

I should have added earlier that goggles in themselves are an exceptionally poor method for protecting virginity...trust me on this.

Motorcycle dealerships always have stylin' gogs...A few types were spotted at Gander Mountain....Google "bubble goggles" for kinda groovy gogs in various tints. If your area has an industrial supply outlet like "Safety Services" they are chock-full of fun things like hornrimmed safetynerd specs with sideguards and neck lanyard. (Not tinted, unfortunately.)

Yes, it's true. It's best to just leave the virgins at home where they will be protected from the "dirty" dust!

Or you could just close your eyes for free!!!!!!

If you can, grab 2 pairs.

Keep one set with the clear lenses for night use and change out the other pair to the dark grey lens for daytime. While these aren't a real chore to swap lenses on, having a snap cover malfunction or loosing a lens cover could be bad.

Virgins don't need special goggles, though you may be googley eyed.

I got mine from a local industrial safety house.
Bacou Dallez I think.
Not really cheap, but they fit over my glasses.
Make sure you have something that fits before you go.

Don't want to complicate things even more but if you use a resperator or dust mask, make sure they fit together on your face espacially around the bridge of your nose. If push comes to shove during a dust storm, you have to breath so keep the dust mask. As Trixy wrote, you can always close your eyes.

Yes you shouldnt have, you are a bad, bad burner :lol:
Made even worse by the resurrection of an old thread. May you be destined to wear nothing but swim goggles at future burns :twisted:

I was really happy with the "vespa" googles I bought off of ebay for $17 shipped from Hong Kong. They were light, didn't get in the way of my dusk mask or bandana, never fogged up, and sealed up against my face well enough that no dust ever got in.

Of course, just wearing your space helmet gives you goggles AND a mask...
