The 'What have you just bought' Thread

7845 posts in this topic

To amalgamate two topics in one here, I've just bought a pair of Bolle Assault glasses, as I saw them mentioned above. Arrived at work, tried them on sitting at my desk... immediate fog!

Can't say I'm full of anticipation for their use in a game, we'll see.

Has anyone read the instructions with their goggles, although used by military, my revisions I'm sure say not for Airsoft.... I did post this before.... But we do wear them, and there fine, just an ass covering I guess.... 🙂

 

Back on topic, part 1 of my radio gear, baofeng as common as an M4, hopefully arrive before Sunday's Tuddenham game..... If she lets me out

Then the other parts to follow...

Remember the goggles we wear are designed for people on the move and jumping out of planes etc, not playing Airsoft where we have to wear them most of the day, they require some airflow, even my Revision locust fans fog up after a while unless I'm moving , I do have some fogtech wipes to try..... Another buy ☹️

I hear you, was just a little disturbed that they fogged sitting at a desk, no exertion at all.. believe me ;D

My sons Bolle Tracker II's on the other hand, for half the price, don't.

The smith boogie regulators are designed for jumping; they're very much like 'normal' civvie goggles I've been given for freefall courses. I wouldn't say that about all tactical eyewear though by any means, a lot of the rated specs we wear/see that are common military issue would come straight off if you jumped in them. Plenty of times people on ops are stationary as well, how much footage from afghan consisted of lads sat on compound roofs or in trenches shooting vs running while shooting?

That's what I said when I was told that as well, so I was a little confused , obviously it helps to have airflow, but you can't keep moving😉

Brought a CYMA EBR of GearTech (worth noting it was cheaper than TG and Gunfure).

 

Having it sent of to have some work done on the weekend, but for now I've added a scope and sprayed some of the externals and removed the side rails.

Just got a Mesh mask, and some glasses. The Yellow actually makes things a lot more defined, it's pretty interesting. They also make everything look like Hawaii. Which is nice. (And yes, that is a little Fun 5fps gun with yellow BBs :P)

Looked at the label, 'Strike Systems' There's also a bunch of Certifications and such I don't understand;

 

'CE EN166 Certified'

and

'Comply with ANSI Z87.1'

 

No idea what these mean of course, But I'm sure one of you probably know. :)

Not bought yet but interesting following recent convos I am getting prescription goggles from safetyspecsuk and they have a pair of goggles that are en166 f rated but meet en166 b standards when worn with the strap and foam.

Wouldn't usually say this in this particular thread but you say you've not bought them yet so hey. Been down this route before myself :)

 

You can do it 'yourself' pretty cheap - my inserts for my ESS V12s came to £57 - thin, anti-scratch and UV coat when all was said and done. The goggles themselves were only £20.

 

Specialised companies charge a premium. If you do some of the leg-work and send your prescription to a place like Glasses Direct that specialises in re-glazing then you'll probably find a better deal. You also won't be confined to only the choices of eyewear that they offer as buying inserts is possible for nearly every major brand so you can buy whatever you please and buying the inserts is as simple as grabbing a set off eBay for a tenner. I know the VICE inserts for my V12s are also cross-compatible with a lot of their other goggles too, so I can swap them over without a reglaze.

this thread is not about safety.... start another thread if you need to but please everyone, this thread is for showing off, for saying I spent a shit tonne on crap that looks ace and makes me operator.... not for "yeah but no but yeah but no..." "your goolies are not coshh assessed" or "your BOLLEox is not quite Royal Navy pink". Let folk show off their new junk that they will use once then buy the same sheep dip stuff we all do, we love spending money.... let us celebrate it without being judged! :D
