I would recommend some nice knee pads (Arc'teryx). Someone said this on ASC and it stuck to me. "Knee Pads > Knee Surgery", same applies to goggles, so depends on your ideal budget. I bought a pair of goggles from Toronto Airsoft for $45+tax and it tab where the goggle strap holds snapped. So I got a pair of Revision Desert Locus Asian Fit with a fan, was a lot more then I wanted to spend, but can't beat losing an eye, hella comfortable, high quality, and 0 fogging.
"Quality Gear" = Expensive, so expect to spend a bit. I run a helmet for CQB, for outdoor it's not always needed because it creates a lot of heat, and the engagment ranges aren't as close as CQB.
