Any place you play that has insurance will likely require full sealed ballistic or paintball eyewear. Safety rated won't cut it as it illegitimate the insurance. If recommend ballistic eyewear regardless, as any safety rated eyewear, such as ANSI or CSA, says very clearly, that once the lenses are scratched or take a hit that they are no good. That doesn't mean that they won't stop a BB, but the manufacturer won't back them up. So one BB strike equals they go in the trash now.
Don't scew around with your eyes, get proper protective lenses designed to take projectiles continuously. If you're a sweaty/high body heat kind of guy, look into a paintball mask with thermal lenses and fans. Your other alternative is to get a large/non low profile goggle, with good face space and mount a more aggresive fa kit to it.
Appreciate the info Riccochet. my issue is the sweating inside the mask not fogging. IMO the water being trapped in my mask is all due to the seal of my goggles having contact with my forehead, for me thats 90% of wear i sweat from.

I personally bought a 30 dollars mask before that is in great condition and it's new for 70 dollars..never fogged and great protection.
I see a shit ton of paintball masks for cheap on craigslist in BC right now..
read the Q and A. that thing is not for airsoft..
yeah its not about money i have revision dessert locusts with the fan. its more about dealing with the sweat inside the lenses.
