Hey there crew,

Ive been looking around and tried a few different models ,but they don't seem to give me good protection when I'm on the whipper !

I use prescription sunniness they are good and have a wide arms for side protection.

 

I also wear a hard hat with a mesh face shield if there is a danger of anything flying.

I've found it's worthwhile spending some time at Bunnings or, in my state Trade Tools and trying on all the pairs in your price range - they all seem to have UV protection so you're after fit on your face, particularly the length of the side arms and how they grip your noggin so they don't slide forward on your nose when you're looking down whipping - also look for a good close fit under your eyes otherwise you can be sure bits of sand and crud are going to get underneath and into your eyes sooner or later - I avoid any product in that f@cking blister packaging for this reason - you've got to try them on - I've never paid more than about $20 for a pair and have in the ute a pair of tints for sunny weather and a pair of clears for low light

l buy bulk lots of Bulldog by Cordova glasses online, tried them all over the years & these seem to be the least likely to fog up whilst offering full protection...and cheap while effective

Anything that's poly carb as they're all 100 % uv protection,ok would you settle for 99 %.However you have to try them on as any amount of gap anywhere you'll get somth'n coming inside (more so for weedeating,that stuff can be fine debris or small stones).So as tight a fit as poss unless you go silicone goggles
