Okay, so i know that everyone has an opinion and im gonna ask; what is the best all around style of eye protection taking into account sight visibility, comfort, fogging up, as well as durability and protection.

Go to a game and see what other players are using. Comfort depends on you. I've had a pair of JT goggles for years and I love them, they fit around my glasses, are comfortable and havn't fogged up badly on me during games. I would suggest getting a good pair of paintball goggles, which you can use at paintball field and private games.

For non-PB goggles, Bolle and ESS are very popular among players.

I use Bolle T-800 when sealed goggles are required. They're the only ones that actually fit me and don't fog up like a bastard. JT Proflex were OK, but too bulky.

I have had serious issues with goggle fog. I agree with Mcguyver, Bolle T-800 are by far the best bang for the buck (There are better ones, ie dual lens, but twice the cost). The T-800 are rubber sealed, not foam, so no sweat is absorbed. It is also very easy to pop the lens for cleaning.

A little anti-fog and you are set (I had fog problems even with the T-800's, some good anti-fog and they are perfect).

One other note, they are low profile, great for Mich's etc, but they do not work so well with glasses (nose bridge), as a team mate pointed out after trying them on.

If you want something acceptable everywhere in Canada, go for a PB goggle.

Try a few on to see which would fit you best. That's all.

Put JT Spectra on the top of your try out list.

I just picked up a pair of Bolle T-800 goggles. Very comfortable, not huge like some paintball goggles are.

As previously stated, you can't wear eye glasses under them.

You can get a rx insert for them that snaps into two mounting holes on the bridge of the goggles.

PB goggles are a must for PB fields but on private fields I use surplus army dust goggles, work great, its been hit with 400Fps 0.22 BBs and not a mark on lens and they fit really well over glasses

I'm able to wear glasses under my T800's. They're frameless glasses though, so they're flexible.
