    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).

    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...8301 1&source=PS&K=SFTYGLASS &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?
