If you are a fan of low profile goggles, I would recommend the Revision Exoshields.

Those appear to be reproductions of the Revision Desert Locust goggles; and while they may be repro's, they very well could still be ANSI rated, I just don't know.

If you're truly in the market for goggles, get something with a fan, thermal (dual-pane) lenses, or both. Most of the major manufacturers have some, ESS, Revision, Oakley, etc., and I think there are even a couple repro goggles with fans. Otherwise you could always DIY if you're handy enough, there are videos and guides out there to tell ya how.

My personal recommendation are the ESS Turbofan's.

ESS Turbofans if you're serious.

ESS Profiles if you're not made of money.

Last I checked CC military surplus had used Profiles for $20.

I wonder how the ESS Turbofan fit with glasses.

I was wondering if there is a brand of goggle out there that combines thermal lenses with fan? I know ESS used to, but not anymore.

I did a lion claws event with my glasses underneath my ESS turbofans. It worked, sort of. It was 70s-80s and low humidity.
The ESS themselves didn't fog but my glasses sure did whenever I was indoors and sweating. Depending on the size and dimensions of your glasses frame they may or may not fit.

I use the wide i magnetic wipers to get rid of any fog/moisture that builds up when I play and the 3 times I've run them so far they have worked pretty well.
