Funny you mention safety committees, I'm currently co chair of the safety committee at a DuPont facility.. It's amazing how you take the knowledge with you outside of work..
Another member here sits on it as well we will see if he chimes in lol
Personally I use a DYE I4 mask, and have a pair of revisions as a backup.
Multiple face/ eye shots later and I couldn't be happier with them.

I've been using my Oakley Flak Jackets (Military Version) for the last 2 years.
I also use Smith Optics Boogie Regulators and just got a pair of the Prospect glasses.
Mil-Spec rated eyewear is what I prefer.

Revision all the way.

Revision is what is issued to our military and if it passes their test it's good enough for me.

ESS Turbo Fan Googles, Oakley ballistic shooting glass.

I completely have no respect for those cheap clones as there is no joke for eyes protection!

Revision Exoshields and Revision Sawfly's.

Both are unreal, obviously Mil-spec.

Would never EVER cheap out.

Some of you remember the thread I made about ESS ICE developing stress fractures over time and losing their protection
I'm now using ESS crossbows, although the fit is wider since there's no NARO option, they're really nice.
Would mind trying some WILEY-X or something, something more narrow lol

used to run mesh never had an issue, with alot of fields requiring seal of at least lens, i bought a pair of revision desert locust fan goggles, once i removed the dust seal foam from the vents i havent had a lick of mosture or fog regular use of the revision wipes and fan running its almost better then using my own eyes.

They do for the Hellflys, iirc the Stingerhawks and Sawflys use the rx carrier.

ESS Turbofan with Rx inserts ordered online from ESS.

I don't use the Rx inserts for airsoft games as they get drenched with sweat because they are close to my face, but the inserts are great for target shooting (airsoft and real steel).

I use this: http://dx.com/p/uv-protection-resin-...les-grey-32118

Not ballistic rated in any way. I've shot right between where the eyes would be with my 2.8J AEG from a meter away and I can sort of see a very tiny imperfection left by the BB. I wear it in conjunction with this:http://dx.com/p/protective-outdoor-w...sk-black-94641

I cut off the mesh goggles of the face mask and just use the bottom as comfortable low profile protection for the mouth area and teeth.
