Need recommendations for goggles that fit over glasses

Post by asinglecandle » Tue Jun 18, 2019 11:12 am

Apologies if this has been asked and answered, I did search before posting.

I need to get some decent goggles that will fit comfortably over my eyeglasses. Looking at these ones on ebay, but even though the item title claims they fit over glasses, nothing in the description confirms that. So I'm skeptical. Does anyone have ones very similar to these and if so can you wear your glasses under them?

We have no paintball or motorcycle stores locally where I could find and/or try on goggles. Any recommendations? Thanks!

I use ski goggles that I got at Big 5. Unfortunately, this time of year they can be hard to find. It also depends on the size of the frames on your glasses. I got a new pair of glasses my second year that still fit, but they are pretty tight. If you order through Amazon Prime there is free return, so you have an out if they do not fit.

The goggles you reference on EBay are only $3.25. You can risk seeing if they fit for that price.

Dewalt goggles fit nicely over my glasses.

I use ski goggles. (Usually from garage sales.) Get the clear ones so you can wear them at night. You can cut a slice out of the foam to let your eyeglass stems slide through. Try some on at the up scale store and you'll see what I'm talking about.

This. They fit over my glasses and over the sunglasses that fit over my glasses. And you can decorate them any way you want. 8) I have been wearing the same pair of blinged-up Dewalts since 2011.

I have a tinted pair and a clear pair of dewalt goggles. Maybe I’ll decorate them this year. I tend to be utilitarian and forget to fancy stuff up.

My wife says to go a store that has supplies for dirt bikes. She bought a pink pair our first year, 2011, and has used them ever since. They have removable, cleanable filters over the air holes. Her's came with three sets of filters.

My solution has been to get cheap round Rx glasses online (than can be ~$10), and take out the lenses and glue them into round goggles (with some craft foam for spacing / fitting). It's not perfect - the PD is a little off (you could maybe compensate for that when ordering), but it works well enough even bike riding. (Only down side is loss of peripheral vision)

After that worked well in 2015, I added a second pair, this time using some cheap camera polarizing filters so I have polarized daytime Rx goggles, which is pretty nice while bike riding.
