Re: Smith Optics LOPRO Regulator Goggle Review

Is the yellow lense ANSI rated? I know when I looked at the ESS yellow lenses ages ago they for some reason were not rated.

Do you think these have enough space for glasses to fit inside? I use ESS Land Ops as a reference, these look wide enough but the nose gap looks larger than most goggles.

Re: Is This the way Airsofters should deal with this?

On a side note, I wouldn't be entirely opposed to refs carrying pistols to "test" accused cheaters to see if they actually call their hits. If they call it, the ref informs them that they're still in the game... if they don't they're out. I would only use this in extreme cases, where not calling hit...

Re: Is there a pair of goggles that work with glasses?

It also depends on the size of your glasses. I used to have a pair that didn't fit in my Land Ops, just too wide framed. Got a slimmer pair and they fit just fine.

I still don't have a fan on mine, probably something I should get over the winter. The Land Ops seldom, if ever fog but you glasses will.

It's an easy stitch, everything else but that small portion of the crotch area is fine. You could probably sew on a new stitch next to the original for added protection from ripping.

Material itself is strong, I got cut by barb wire and my leg was cut pretty good but no tear in the fabric at all.
