Lowest profile goggle frames
I need some help picking a mask
First off, I'm sorry. I'm gonna talk about airsoft a bit:runaway:
...anyone still here?
So, I would love to find some goggles to use during paintball, but I can pull everything off to use during airsoft as well.
The dumb field rules at the local paintball field ONLY allow us to use paintball certified goggles during airsoft, because they're only insured for that equipment.
EVEN if we have ballistic certified gear that faaaaaar exceeds those standards (can stop a shotgun blast!) we can't use them.
So, I'm the kind of guy that likes consistency, and to use only one set of equipment. I don't like changing it up.
I play paintball and airsoft equally, and would love to find a set of goggles with the lowest profile frame available, that fits the closest to your face. Paintball goggles can look awful and cartoonish if they don't have the mask on them, so I'm trying to reduce that. If I can use them for both, I'm a happy boy. Slightly limiting my vision isn't too big a concern
If I have to cut the mask to get only the goggles (one piece designs) that's fine too. I'll just buy 2 masks and that'll give me the consistency still between the two.
I know many are going to suggest a Flex. But guess what? All the other guys I play with use them. And we can't all go wearing the same stuff! It'd be ...boring
If anybody has any experience with cutting, or modding, I'd greatly appreciate some guidance. I just can't go around trying all the goggles ever invented, plus looking at photos only shows you so much.
A set of goggles that looks sleek and awesome, after you see someone wearing it, it turns out half of the face coverage is the lens! Way off from what I'm looking for.
At least some suggestions on the smallest fitting masks you've ever found would help too
Looking for something that will look good with only goggles section.
Thanks guys (and girls... I know you're out there too)
