    Default Eye Protection?

    I am looking at getting ESS Goggles, and am wondering if anyone has used these? Or what you recommend for eye protection?

    The ESS goggles seem to work fine, it's what I carry. Admittedly, I very rarely use them - a good pair of sunglasses works fine most of the time.

    i've found my ESS goggles work quite well for when in heavy smoke, most of the rest of the time I wear Bullard "Rage" safety sunglasses (amber and mirrored)

    SCBA facepiece and some safety glasses for extrication. Haven't seen the need of having the goggles.

    Default ESS so-so

    ESS innerzone 2 goggles work great for wildland firefighting and keeping the ash and smoke out. Our department does structural firefighting and rescue/extrication also and the goggles made my face sweat so much I couldn't see for my eyes burning. So I removed some of the foam on some of the vents so air would flow in a little more.

    ESS goggles are the way to go, they give really good protection from smoke / particulate. Cleanup of these gogles is easy and some styles even have tearoffs. I've been using these for 3 years without an issue.
    Totally Unacceptable !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
