Take all the foam out of the frame on the V12s. It's there to filter dust in *ahem* sandy places. You won't need it and it'll help with airflow. Use the anti fog wipe they come with and pop the lens pods into the open position for extra venting!

Cheers for the tips. The foam came straight out as soon as they were delivered. Will give them a wipe before I use them and see how I get on. Think the Bolle may be better though as V12s are a bit bulky for my liking but i’ll see how it goes.

Meh... overrated opinion incoming;

 

Goggles just hinder your peripheral vision. Same when wearing prescription glasses over lenses, being able to see 20/20 without a blurry frame around the edge is a must. I honestly do not know why anyone bothers with goggles, for me I get hot quickly and they just become a rainforrest enclosure. With glasses, I do get a litle condenstaion but not enough to blur my vision and there is zero fogging because I am not wearing a sealed unit on my face.

Funny that's exactly what she said....

 

Dunno why but I hate goggles, they are just cumbersome and uncomforable and I find full masks just collect sweat. I tried a few goggles and masks, all were unusable by end of briefing, yeah.... so now I do not look back with the Bolle Siliums clear/smoked.

For me it is because I almost got shot in the eye... For CQB I think I'll always wear my Bullit ANT's. Cumbersome yes, but they move a lot less on my face than the bolle trackers do. So when I inevitably get shot in the face again, there is much less chance of the bb hitting so close to my eye again.  However I am looking into getting a pair of sawfly's for outdoor games. Mostly for the comfort factor, slightly cause they look cooler 😎

First outing in these...

I got drilled in the face by a rental who didn't listen when they said NO FULL AUTO.... not a single mark on the glasses. But there were plenty on my knuckles after the bb's ricocheted off the glasses onto my hands. I have since filmed me shooting three full mags from my KWC G17c at them from about 10ft. (unfortunately my footage corruped cos my Drift is old as fook.)

 

Not a single mark on them, they are truly made of invincible stuff.

 

Plus they cost less than £15 posted.

Ensure you get the silium platinums and not the contour as the contour are rated way lower.

I get a wider field of view with the paintball mask vs full seal goggles.  Downside is it gets hot in there

Which is why I use glasses.

 

The only place I ever perspire from is my head and back. It's weird but you can imagine what the inside of a mask is like for me five minutes into a game.

 

Having been a bespectacled twat since my teens I am used to having poor peripheral vision so when I put in lenses and glasses that don't restrict vision like goggles, it's freaking amazing.

I can just about cope without glasses outside, but they were a big help in the Mall, after I tried them towards the end.  Unfortunately I don't get on well with contacts. I did by insert frames for full seal goggles, but I find the paintball mask better in most ways aside from the heat.

When did you last try using contacts lenses? They have vastly improved over the last 3 years. Hell five years ago I struggled with them, they were just too uncomfortable. Now I have dailies which I can wear up to 12 hours and they are so comfortable. Then I pull em out and thrown em away, I get 30 pairs for £20 inc. p&p.

Last tried about 2 1/2 years ago, they were daily disposables from Boots

There you go then. Boots are shit as opticians period. Go to Specsavers, one of the best on the high street (myself having used nearly every company that do eye glasses and the like for the last 30 years) and ask for a trial, it's free. They'll give you a bunch to go away and try and if you don't like them they'll find ones right for you. I wouldn't harp on about it so much if I didn't think it was truly worth a punt mate.

Ok, will give it a go.  Was a free trial from boots.  I had tried specsavers a few years before that.  I only wear glasses mainly for driving, but in poor light my guns have more range than I can see clearly 😀

I have the below... Been shot multiple times and not a scratch on them. Fits nice but it's not a full seal but sits maybe 1-2mm away from my cheek IMG_20180131_224146.thumb.jpg.5788e43fad4cc4ff015143dcd7726e3f.jpg

You'll never get a full seal with glasses but that's why they don't fog up like goggles. Pros n cons but for me I prefer airflow and vision to condensation and blindness.

Just back from skirmish and can report that Bolle trackers suck dick for money, fogged up before I even started the first game. Luckily I was able to swap over to the ESS V12’s halfway through, which were bloody brilliant, no fogging what so ever!
