Cause ruling for the brits is different. They actually have airsoft only sites and guys feel that having less issues with fogging is more important than eye sight. Also can actually be insured for airsoft. Over here is different. Sure on some private fields yes you can wear ballistic shoots glasses. But the risk is still there, you are more likely to lose and eye. So when it comes to this game is on your field and time you want to risk your eyes, IMO go right ahead. I will keep wearing my revisions and ESS goggles.

Why don't you contact Stirling and ask them?

There only appear to be two rules on their website regarding Eye protection:


- Eye protection must be worn at all times, except in the designated safe zone!

- Sleeping in game is done so at your own risk, players MUST keep eye protection on at all times. Personnal kit is to be kept to a minimum in game area’s. Keep it in your car until you need it !!!Only on 24 hr games.
As stated by others protection will be typically limited to paintball-approved goggles at any paintball field to meet insurance requirements. Otherwise it is up to the host to lay out requirements based on what they perceive is the minimum safe requirement.

* puts spoon away *

They are your eyes, protect them accordingly or don't feel badly when they get damaged due to negligent behavior.

First, I want to say you and I have had side discussions on certain wing nuts who have come to games, not calling hits etc, and I do value your input. I feel your response is actually worth considering as it does lay it out. The photo I showed you of the glasses does not show them on your face and actually wrap around the side pretty well. Minimal gap. Once you finish it off with a shamog wrap its is pretty much closed up.

As the first post I put up points out, I was asking why the games out west in Canada allow them and so does Stirling Airsoft. The example of strirling is actually a good one as I am sure nobody is going to dispute they and the king of the heep for games. Off the wall stuff that make the games here look like a day care center. I saw their videos and the ones from out west and the picture below seems to be the same thing I keep asking. You dont even see an ESS in this picture. I am not trying to argue or question, just was wondering why these places CAN and places here CANT. I am really beginning to think this has more to do with being at a paintball place. Again, at SOF we are not going to be sharing fields, and this spring there is a seperate safety zone being put up for airsoft at the opposite side of the grounds. All the games that will be happening between now and June will effectively cut off the interaction of Paint and Airsoft with the field selection.
To cap this off, there will be a no engagement under 10 foot rule put in.

Anyway, perhaps maybe we can steer the conversation away from SOF and to why below is ok?

See pic at Stirling UK.

Some private fields do allow shooting glasses, from my experience there are a few places that I played in Japan and HK that allows shooting glasses but they have a much lower fps (280fps) than we do and NOT all the fields will allow the shooting glasses in their event. The one club that I played in HK will allow shooting glasses but it's at the users own risk. Marui shooting club (run by Marui, use only Marui guns) allowed the participants to use shooting glasses and mesh goggles, keep in mind that their guns are shooting below 300fps and have a very strict no engagement rule within 15 feet
