    These are one of those items that I personally must try on before purchasing...comfort is paramount. Hate it when the bottom edge touches my face...while too large of a gap here is also undesirable.

    Safety glasses WILL get scratched over time so affordability is advantageous. Used to buy Ironman brand from Target, but at ~$20+ they got beat out by some ~$7 ones I found that a local electrical/lighting store carries. Both have UVA/B & shatterproof protection.


    For leaf dust the pair of goggles I bought from Wolfsnout have proven themselves worthy. Nice comfortable seal to keep the dust out while the amber lens adds a nice contrast to the terrain. Obviously they pair well with Wolfsnout's breathing mask to further keep the dust out.

    I wear BodyGaurds, tinted with Z87 safety rating. I buy them by the case at Fastenall, with the bulk discount it makes them under $4 a pair. I encourage all my guys to wear them, but a few of the younger ones think their designer shades do just as good of job, then complain with they get scratched.

    I buy Safety Glasses (wrap-around type) at a local Oilfield supply and hardware store for about $6-$7 a pair. I have used this style glasses for the last 12 years (motorcycle touring). They work really well against wind, dust, rain, etc...!!!

    I now use them for string trimming and cutting grass....

    i use mike holmes safety glasses. they do an amazing job with staying on your head and wrap tightly around your eyes. i probably spent around $600-900 on expensive brands before i wised up and realized that i would keep losing them.

    I wear polarized prada sunglasses, they are designed for sailing, but they cover my eyes well and at 158 dollars shipped they are extremely affordable. I even have another set of the exact same pair I use when I'm not working. they are in perfect condition. even my work pair are still in excellent condition. I used to wear cheap safety glasses but they aren't as comfortable and don't fit as well. being comfortable while working is key. so naturally I wear express jeans to work in and they are about 100 a pair and my asolo hiking boots i wear or my chippewa super loggers are about 220 a pair, safety is important to me.
