Goggles For Paint Spraying, That Are COMFORTABLE!


I got those cheap goggles from home depot, they don't fit well over my noise, and my respirator (3M) hits the lower piece!

What type of goggles do you guys use?



I was looking at these:

Don't buy the cheapest safety glasses though. For me, the cheapo ones always fog up. I usually spend under $10.00 for a decent pair of safety glasses. I wear a ball cap so the bill covers the top. When I'm spraying, I wear a good filter mask over my nose/mouth.. not one of the doctor type things held on by elastic but one with replaceable filter pads for various chemicals. Clean the glasses with soapy water after each use or they will get spotted up.

I use the 3M respirator/Face Mask combo. It was like $99 from Sherwin Williams I think. Very comfortable...

Are they comfortable to wear if you wear glasses?

Us too- can you believe that you can pay over $100 for a mask and it does not com with respirator cans. We have the easy fit ones that you "screw" onto your face until it is sealed. We then got the plastic film that sticks to it so it can be pulled off and replaced w/o having to clean it. Great mask though. I am sure you can wear glasses under it too

Re: Goggles For Paint Spraying, That Are COMFORTABLE!


got the same one. thought its great before i used it--it makes me feel too isolated from everything else that goes on around (ladders, ppl moving, staircases, etc.); feels too claustrophobic and is too sweaty; can't see clearly either...

Re: Goggles For Paint Spraying, That Are COMFORTABLE!


check out motorcycle goggles. i use them for sanding, they dont fog, decent peripheral, and there the most comfortable goggles ive ever worn. i dont spray, but when i roll out a ceiling i just clean em with thinner when im done. maybe a little rainx or windsield oil will prevent the paint from adhering for easier clean up?

i got a tip for you makita guys out there, wipe your goggles with a dryer sheet before you start, it reduces the static of the plastic that attracts the dust, it almost repels it! it'll make your day!
