Small-sized aviator goggles

Postby trystanthegypsy » Wed Jul 07, 2010 12:37 pm

I'm looking for a pair like this, but I need a smaller size. I have a tiny weird eye region... I can wear little kid sunglasses.. I tried on a pair in a store and they were waaaay too big. (They squish my nose and I can't breath properly)

So, I'm hesitant to order a pair online because I'm afraid they won't fit.

Has anyone ever bought a smaller pair? From where? Please only stuff you have personal experience with.

the Chinese aviator goggles I used last year, and posted about, fit pretty darn small faces..........

found 'em here:
http://go-armynavy.com/index.php/helmets/goggles/chinese-military-goggles.html

of course, they were 2 pairs for 10 bucks last year, now, 25 bucks each........
I have an extra set I'll be bringing, though.

I'm very very far from the bay area, but I would gladly pay for shipping! what a generous offer :)

Are you specifically looking for aviator goggles, or simply goggles to wear in the dust?

My wife has a VERY small face and head (has to wear children's glasses and hats). I'll see if I can find her goggles and find out what kind they are. I remember we had to look a long time to find a pair that fit well. They're not aviators, though.

Campmor has kid's sizes of stuff.
Try safety gear.
Should be in all sizes, may be local.


Cirrus has silicone clear earplugs for kids.
Stiff enough that I use them.
Almost invisible.

I want aviators. I have 2 other pairs of goggles and neither one works for me very well, for other issues, not fit. (bad field of vision, darkness, crappy foam, etc etc)

Also, you might check on military surplus stores close to your area. Most larger towns in almost every state have them.

They're likely to have something.

She's in Canada. Military surplus? Puh-leeeez.

Army Careers by The Frantics:


1: Hey, you! Is this where you join the Canadian armed forces?
2: This is the recruitment center. Would you like to enlist?
1: Do you have guns?
2: Yes, we do.
1: I'm in!
2: Well done, welcome aboard. First the paperwork. Name?
1: Ed. Ed Gruberman. I can't wait to boot some head!
2: All right. Well, would you like Army, Navy, or Air Force?
1: Who has the most guns?
2: Uh, Army.
1: I want Army.
2: Okay! Now which course would you like?
1: Courses?
2: Yes, to learn a career.
1: I don't want a career, I want a gun. I want a biiiig gun!
2: Everyone wants a free education. It's our incentive to enlist. Now, pick three from this pamphlet.
1: "Introduction to International Politics"? "Computers 101"? "Antique Restoration"?
2: Yes, that qualifies you to work on our helicopters.
1: Look! Don't you have any courses with guns?
2: Well, yes. Last page.
1: "Intro to Ammo"? "Advanced Wounding"? "Creative Bazookas"?! Ooh, ooh! I'll take all these!
2: Fine. Uh, any mental diseases or physical deformities?
1: Okay, I'll take paranoia, three nipples, and uh--
2: No no no no. I mean--
1: What? Oh.
2: Nev-never mind. Would you like in on the pension plan?
1: No.
2: Christmas club?
1: No!
2: King or Queen size?
1: Look, I want a gun! I want to kill people!
2: What, who?
1: Uh, Afghanis.
2: We're not at war with them.
1: We will be after I start killin' em!
2: No, we don't kill people.
1: Not even Al Qaeda?
2: Oh, no no no. They're dangerous. We don't want to get them angry.
1: What a wimp!
2: I'm not a wimp! I'm EXTREMELY tough. I do advanced pilates.
1: You're a wimp! Have you shot anyone lately?
2: Well, the Canadian Army isn't about shooting people. It's about career training and being all you can be on a limited budget.
1: I want to bathe in a geyser of enemy blood!
2: That hardly sounds sanitary.
1: SCREW sanitary! I want to blow things up like in "Shaving Ryan's Privates"!
2: No no, no. The-the movie was "Saving Private Ryan".
1: What movie?
2: Look-- I--
1: What?
2: What? I--
1: Look, let me explode a few buildings!
2: No!
1: One stab wound!
2: No, our insurance rate will go up.
1: What are you, a bunch of girls?!
2: NO! Well, ek-except for the girls.
1: There's girls in the army?!
2: And they're just as tough as the men.
1: So they don't shoot anyone either, huh?
2: Well, that's not what we do!
1: Wimp! What DO you do?
2: Peacekeeping.
1: Wimp.
2: Border patrol.
1: Wimp.
2: Parades.
1: Wimp!
2: Typing.
1: Wimp!
2: Filing.
1: WIMP!
2: That does it! Get out of here before I do something!
1: Oh, I'm real scared! What are you gonna do, file me out?
2: Uh, wait-wait a minute. Just what are you doing here anyway?
1: I told you! I want a gun, I want a lot of guns, I want to start killing anyone I disagree with!
2: Oh-ho. Oh, you want the AMERICAN army.
1: Oh, okay, thank you. Bye-bye
