Hey folks,

Spring clean-ups are very dusty. What, if anything do you use to keep dust out of your eyes? Most goggle types I've tried get foggy even with the anti fog coating and sprays. Anyone find any good ones to use in conjunction with a dust mask? Suggestions? Ski goggles are too much, I already look kooky enough!

I just wear my sunglasses, they are a great fit on me and it usually directs everything away from my eyes......comfortable and stylish as well :) the dust mask would ruin that LOL.

Yeah the sunglasses help, but still the fine dust gets onto eyebrows, lashes and sometimes eyes. Stupid dust!

If you feel like splurging, Uvex Genesis is the ultimate, but they also run close to a dozen dollars, each.

Find them at Advance Auto, maybe HD or Lowe's.
The Uvex Astrospec 3000's the economical version and also quite decent (but not much cheaper lol).
http://www.uvex.us/products/products2.asp?id=15

Man I love those things, but had to give them up (price).
Nowadays, I use these (order at least 10 or 12 to offset shipping somewhat):
http://j-thomasorder.com/iwwidb.pvx?;multi_item_submit?form_select=I&item_no=SE-8301%20%20%20%20%20%20%20%201&source=PS&K=SFTYGLASS%20&comp=JTH
I can't get that page to work, try this:
http://www.j-thomas.com/Catalog/246.htm (then tick the se-8301 Mirror lens)

They're not bad, probably about like a $6 or $7 set, not quite the Genesis but not bad, bit like the astro, the construction is a little flimsier but the lens will scratch out long before the frame craps out (this should always be the case lol).

If you can fling it, orders over $300 get free shipping (J-Thomas has a LOT of parts), and orders over $1000 get 10% on top of that (but I can hardly get $300 going lol).
Here's their main alpha list:

Thanks a lot sarge and top, good suggestions. I've tried the AO safety ones and the uvex goggles as well. Both are pretty good, but still fog up. I think that no matter what the goggles will fog. I put anti fog spray and the fog just sheets and is clear which helps, but after a little while that too becomes annoying. I guess it's just the nature of the work and all the sweat that does it, I think I'm hoping for a miracle- something I've missed. My next try will be the GI ones, I'll let y'all know how they do. Any more ideas?

Also- topsites- your eyes are worth $12!
I use carbon layered vented dust masks that run $4 a piece, one a day. I'm worth it and so are you!

Bought my Dust GoggleGear at www.safetyglassesusa.com. Only cost about $10 per pair at the time. Edge has foam all the way around...not bad at all about fogging up. I had to do something since I wear contact lens.

I once saw a pair of goggles that guys were wearing at a race track (drivers) they were somewhat bubbled out and the sides were vented and lined with foam fabric around the vents. I'll be damned if I can find them anywhere. A friend of mine races at a local track, I'll see if he can find any. These would be perfect-total eye coverage, vented so no fogging up. Glasses might look better and be a little more comfortable but there is still a lot of area for crap to make its way into your eyes.

Sounds good. Thanks!

Go find some sunglasses designed for motorcycle use. Allot of them have a foam seal that sits between your face and the frame.

Wiley makes a great product. They are used by the military in all conditions but they are expensive....

if your worried about them fogging up, you can get anti-fog stuff at any eyeglass or sunglass store and it works great.

I do use the fog stuff and it works at keeping fog down, but I must sweat like a beast becaue it gets to where it's like a film of water which isn't too fun to look thru after a while. I think I'm gonna try some of those riding or military googles/ sunglasses. That's what I'm talkin' about Willis.
