I really like the way these goggles look, and so far I've only been able to find one review on www.arniesairsoft.co.uk. I've seem some players wearing them on the ops and I like to have more reviews before I buy these goggles. So if anyone can tell me how these goggles worked for you or someone you know, I would appreciate it. I have the CQC Wiley X googles that I bought because they weren't as bulky as other goggles, but they fog up horribly on me even with Fog Tech or Cat Crap one them.

Well, according to this...

They are "non-sealed" goggles.

TXPB and the Spec Ops Operations don't allow goggles that are "non-sealed" on the field.

I have been wearing those goggles for the past year now with no problems with fogging. The only complaint is that they fit so close to your face sometimes sweat drips on the lens and runs, but again the close fit is what makes them so awsome. They are about as sealed as you are going to get, in a goggle. There is a 3/4 inch by 1/4 inch space on both sides that the strap cover when the goggles are on. There is less of a chance of a BB going into that area then into the spot on Oakley goggles where everyone removes material for better breathing at the top and the bottom. I posted some pictures here for you to see what I'm talking about. http://www.lonestarairsoft.com/forums/photopost/showgallery.php/cat/500/ppuser/932

I had those as my first set of googles and could not use them to to fogging and getting sweat on the lenses. I endeed up cutting out half of the plastic just to get them to the point that I could play. I would say dont waste your money...spend the extra 30 to get a set of turbocams.

Obsidian were you using the double lens in yours? Also where can you find black TurboCams, everywhere I look they come in graphite.

Odd, I can only find them without a color description or in "black".

Obs doesn't wear glasses or contacts to my knowledge so he wasn't wearing double lenses.

I had the set that was linked to at botach. Happened to be my first last and only purchase from them.

I have never seen anything other than black turbocams as well.

Sassy got a set from diamondback tactical a few months ago.

I found out the problem when I was searching I kept finding the Turbo Cams from Smith Goggles.
