i like snowboard goggles. They´re protecting perfectly against the dust, but they are hot inside.

big sunglasses and a hat having a similar effect.

One big discovery I made this year is having a pair of clear lens goggles for night. After 10 years, it was like a "duh" moment, of course! Dust happens at night too, and most ski-type goggles are too dark to see though. It was awesome!

I had motorcycle goggles, two pair. One tinted for daytime, one pair clear for nighttime. Usually just end up always having both pair on me at all times.

These look good. Looks as if they are totally sealed with something foamy on the edges.

I've never owned these, but have bought many different ones from this outfit over the years.

The two for one "Holiday's" price seems very nice:

I second these.

I wouldn't recommend them for wearing with a helmet, but they are great for Burning Man. I bought a dozen or so (never paid more than $3) and was gifting them on the playa whenever I saw someone who seemed to be suffering without.

I wouldn't count on them surviving multiple years, but for $3 , who cares? I have better goggles that I have paid $100 for and, yes, they will last a year or two, but I would rather have $3 goggles that I can abuse rather than $100 goggles I have to worry about. For $3 I stuff them in my camel pack, one in the bicycle bag, have some strapped around my favorite hat, etc.

I have two sets of eye and nose/mouth protectors: onion glasses and a full face mask.

Both the onion goggles, along with a "better than the cheapest" paper filter mask (which can be folded)
can be stuffed in any pocket for those times when you have to get your shit together in 30 seconds and pedal away from your campsite.
No messing around with loading your bike basket with a bag, or strapping on a backpack, or putting on some waist pack (and seriously, how many of us have the skills to keep a "go to" bag always ready to go with water/hat/sunscreen/clean goggles/mask/lip balm/gifts/drinking vessel/etc.etc.)
The onion goggles work very well. There can be some condensation build up, but for their practicality, I've found nothing equal.

For planned investigative hours long trips to deep playa, I take the full face mask, and actually look forward to the worst white outs...
Foam earplugs or even tissue in the ears for the "tent fail" type wind storms/mini tornadoes. These type of masks have a carbon filter for paint vapors, but in front of those two filters are disposable particulate filters, and never has there been a "sheen" of those micron sized playa dust that pass thru the paper filters. I never use more than two sets of those per year.

These are the googles I use...stands up to any dust storm the playa gave me last year.

They are Pyramex V2G Safety Eyewear, Clear Anti-Fog Lens With Black Strap/Temples I got them on amazon for 7 dollars. Bonus I could put my glasses under these googles which have transitions on them so they become my sunglasses.
