Recently I began looking into playing airsoft with a few of the guys that I work with and realized that I was going to need a good set of goggles to protect my eyes better than the normal safety glasses I would wear to the range. I remembered seeing the Bobster Alpha goggles during SHOT Show and the fact that their pricing is among a normal persons budget intrigued me.
So I hit up their site and started checking out the different types of safety goggles and glasses they had available. There were 2 pairs that I found that should work great with the metal mesh masks that I will be using during game play (don't need to lose a tooth to a bb haha). The first pair are the Bobster Alpha goggles, and the second pair are the Prowler Deluxe. Both pairs provide awesome coverage of the eyes while both being ballistically rated, and come with both clear and tinted lenses.
The clarity of the lenses, and the total viewing area on both pair of the glasses is very impressive. The Alpha goggles give an almost completely unobstructed view compared to some of the other goggles I have tried on. The Prowler's also have a great viewing area and are a bit more comfortable to wear since they do not sit on your face like goggles do.
Both pairs are comfortable, however neither pair are something I would wear outside of the airsoft play area. However one of the guys that I work with has deployed with his Infantry unit and when he tried on the Alphas he said he would take them over the ones he was issued any day.
I am really looking forward to using both sets over the next few months and seeing how well they perform. I know a few of the guys have had issues with their goggles fogging up during games, especially since gameplay is all indoors.
