Well for Goggles, I can recommend ESS Profiles, they fit perfectly with a helmet (that is if your using one). And look great too
And of course we all know that ESS offers great protection to your eyes, as they issue their stuff to the US Army.

Just be aware you can't use those at a paintball Field.

The first game i went to, I showed up with ESS goggles, only to be told i had to rent shittty rental goggles :\

True that I guess it depends, how often I'll play with paint ball goggles

It really doesn't matter how much you spend on the goggles, if they got a good review buy em, shoot them at point blank range a couple if times in different areas and if they hold up...then your good to go.

I did that with some Auto glasses I got for free from my teacher. perfect for shooting cans

Anyway and if your asking about protection from stray BB's, either get a helmet or some sort of hat "boonie, basball" Anything helps.

Make sure though, pick quality goggles. Nothing sucks more than a fucked up eye because of cheapness.
Go with ESS or Desert Locust (the real stuff not the China Shit) or Paintball goggles.

I wouldn't recommend buying goggles that aren't officially safety rated, Regardless of if they can take a few shots close up.

Why cheap out on something that could save your vision? It's a one time friggin' expense anyways and it's cheaper than eye surgery. Go by some full seal goggles and ignore the advice that auto glasses are fine. If they're ballistically safety rated and full seal you're good to go. Not all shots come from the front so full seal is definitely necessary.

Players in Southern Ontario should get a set of paintball goggles first and foremost. Paintball goggles are required at the paintball fields (which represent the majority of the play areas) available here, it doesn't matter if ballistics are better, paintball are required because paintball fields need us to use them for insurance purposes. If you want to get a second set of whatever for use elsewhere go ahead, but don't get anything else than paintball goggles first.

Paintball goggles are allowed everywhere, ballistics goggles are only allowed at non paintball fields and they're the minority.

I have the Proto Switch EL's, JT Spectra's and Bolle T800's.

The Proto's are full face where as the JT's I have only ever used just the goggle portion but use them 90% of the time. I have yet to use the T800's as most fields don't allow them but I got them for a great price. I have used a pair of polycarb shooting glasses for one game in the past. They limited the potential for a BB's to enter but fogged up pretty bad.

you bring up a good point.

BTW i was going to use my brothers snowboarding goggles BUT they are way to big and stick out too much, and the lense is a shiny reflective colouring like a mirror almost, so you could see your self pointing your gun at yourself probably.

And those goggles would probably just crack on the first shot.
Heres what I think, get a set of Paintball goggles, then for a semi "tacticool" loudout get the ESS, Desert Locust or Arena Flakjacks
