I need some safety glasses input. I want something that looks and wears good.

I found thousands of glasses online but I don't know which wears the best.

What do you use?

Name/model and if bought online, please include website.

They wrap around enough to keep debris flying (at diff. angles) from hitting your eyes, competitiveimageland?

They work great and they are not terrible to wear. Everybody is given two pairs.

I use elvix, i got them off the matco tool truck, they are gold color . I prefer the gold color lense over the dark, and i use the wrap around style. The reason i prefer the elvix is because the parts are replaceable, if you scratch the lense up you can replace it or if you need a different color lense they are replaceable.They are economical and look good for everday use, look more like sunglasses then safety glass. Also they have adjustable ear pieces, and last but nor least the elvix are easy to find they are real popular

use the A O Safety brand, tinted and clear. Also use them as everyday sunglasses and for when riding the motorcycle.

I just wear Spy sunglasses. They cost 60 bucks but they keep me looking cool all summer.

I forgot to mention that I want to wear these as safety/sunglasses. Will be wearing them all day everyday.

Don't want the big safety glasses look. They wear on my ears and slide down when trimming.


I had a pair that came from my Stihl Dealer that I liked but they didn't hold up very well. The lens would break at the frame and fall out.

something like mowahman. I will check on finding the A O Safety glasses.

I also like some of the others that you use.

thanks for any input...............

Lawn n garden guy...
The ones in the first photo are the ones that I liked but with a gray lens. They would stay on my face better than the other ones.
I still have a pair of the ones in the bottom photo. Seem to heavy and they allow sweat to run off my forehead onto the lens. Constantly having to remove them while trimming and clean off the sweat.

The other ones (top photo) didn't do this. I think its the way the top brow line is designed. the only thing with the first kind is that the lens will break out after a month or so.

thanks O-O

I like the 2 new models that stihl offers. I had the V-II and liked alot but they didn't hold up very well.

I might buy one of each the New pair and the Scaper and see how they do.

I wear Crews safety glasses. You can get them at the website DCLS mentioned. Triwear is the particluar style I like. They look cool, and provide great protection, plus they are priced right.
