Most clubs enforce that eye protection must be ballistic rated (can't remember ansi rating off the top of my head) mesh goggles don't meet this rating.

the mesh doesnt seem to be as big a deal here in winnipeg, the local indoor area uses mesh masks for their rentals

and for outdoors when weather permits, everyone seems to have a pretty big BB bastard addiction

I use mesh. But I have taken dust in the eyes

The big thing to watch for is painted mesh. As the paint is more likely to come off. I plan to move to goggles with fans though.
