Goggles for Glasses?

Post by BeckyBoodles » Thu Jun 09, 2011 7:29 pm

First time going to Burning Man this year, and I wear glasses (no contacts!). Does anyone know where I can buy goggles that are big enough to cover glasses as well?

Safety equipment.
Paintball stuff seems to work too.
Many depend on your glasses.

Do a google image search for "vintage chinese goggles" and look for the ones with the D-shaped lenses. They fit over glasses and work very well in the desert. They've been showing up all over Ebay and various online sites for the past few years for $10-20. Leave off the "chinese" part when searching Ebay as they are often labeled as coming from other countries for some reason.

And leave the good glasses at home and bring out that old spare pair you never use.

Google it, but just remember to get goggles that are actually sealed, with foam, not something like chemistry goggles, which have vents.

I picked up a couple different styles of over glasses goggles at http://www.maximumeyewear.com

They are not the most stylish things, but most goggles large enough to fit over glasses aren't. I don't know how their prices compare, but the service was fast.

Snowboard goggles work well. Another thing to think about... If it's a whiteout, you can't see anyway, so you don't really /need/ to have glasses on under your goggles. You can swap them out if you find something you really like but the glasses won't fit under.
