Great post! Everyone should wear safety glasses because you only have 2 eyes. I'm all for safety for stuff like that, and even have a couple of pairs smoke and clear, but I usually don't wear them, only because when I sweat and start dripping, they are a real pain. Not to mention the fog. I get so frustrated, I usually go without. Last weekend I got some crap in the eye while weed whackin'... So, it put an emphasis back on me to get something that works, even if I have to pay some real bucks. I just spent the last hour looking at all the safety glasses on a site mentioned a couple times in this thread. So, question I have for everyone is regarding the sweat and fog, is there anything that works? The expensive Oakleys or the cheapos? I'm a Stihl guy myself and like to hear they are popular. Must check them out, but, will they work for sweat and fog?

I definately wear safety glasses. My dealer always has a few nicer ones for sale for around $10. ECHO and Stihl ones are actually pretty nice and are both around $10. I don't wear the expensive ones because I always eventually end up either losing them or breaking them.

I used to wear oakleys, then I lost them. So I bought a sweet set of safety glasses.

I wear treated sunglasses, that are OSHA/ANSI approved for shatter resistance, and they have to have UVA/B protection, and wrap around pretty good, ya only get 2 eyes!

I just go with a pair of good sunglasses. . . safety glasses hurt my head after a while.

What I want to know is who the one guy is who wears a full face mask? lol
