I work in a chemistry lab and wear goggles anywhere from four to twelve hours a day, five to six days a week. Common splash goggles become uncomfortable after a few hours, so I decided to try a few better quality goggles. I wear glasses.

On the plus side, these AO Safety goggles are comfortable. The single-piece lens is flexible and exhibits very little distortion. The goggles readily conform to the face, make a good seal, and are plush. The strap appears durable.

On the minus side, the lens is tinted, the goggles are heavy, the lens pushes against my glasses, and they emit a horrific odor.

Although the lens is obviously high quality, it is tinted. The tinting is subtle, but became more obvious as time went by. The goggles are obviously intended for working in a chemical hazard environment. Most such environments are indoors, so there's really no logic to the tint. It's not dark enough for full sun protection, and diminishes the apparent indoor light.

Compared to other goggles, they are heavy. The strap keeps them well positioned, as does the seal they make to the face. But, after a few hours of wear, they become wearisome from the weight pulling on the face.

The goggles' ability to conform to the face makes them unsuitable for glasses wearers. The edges of the goggles take a sharp turn around the temples. The arms of my glasses contact the lens, forcing the glasses into the bridge of my nose; I don't have big glasses. There are cut outs for the arms of glasses which are readily removed with an hobby knife.

These glasses stink. After removing the goggles I could smell the chemicals that leached from their manufacture. This odor remained with me for two to three hours. Whatever is causing the odor cannot be good for the health. Also, as a chemist, odors are one clue that something bad is in the air. Since the odor from the goggles was so overpowering, the inability to smell lab chemicals is a safety hazard.

I cannot say whether or not they are fog proof or fog resistant. The lab is kept air-conditioned. I can see why some occasional goggle users would like these, especially if the use is for periods less than one hour. For full-time lab workers, they are not suitable.

These goggles are very solid. Fortunately I haven't had to test them yet, but whenever I have used them, I've felt that my eyes were very well protected. I mainly got these because they were inexpensive and fit over my glasses (I can't see much without my glasses, and I need them on for the machine shop work for which I purchased this product).

My only real complaint is that they don't have any venting; as a result, after not-that-lengthy periods of use, they tend to fog up inside. This is easily fixed by taking them off briefly, and perhaps wiping down the inside. It's just somewhat annoying to have to stop what I'm doing every 15 minutes or so to de-fog.

The goggle works great as described and as it's intended to be used. The lenses are 100% anti-fog, that is for sure, but ventilation is bad. 2 minutes and my prescription glasses would fog up and I'd have to remove the goggle for 5 seconds to get clear visibility, and this is why I rated it 4. It's NOT comfy as not wearing, that's for sure, but this is what you get for a well-secure goggle (although can be improved). Overall, as an amateur, I'm very glad about this product.

They fog up on me after only like 3 minutes of use. I have to take them off and wipe them every time. Don't waste your money.

I bought these goggles for their anti-fog properties only to find out in the middle of my chemistry lab that they in fact do fog. At first it was my glasses that fogged so I removed them and continued, and then the goggles fogged up and would fog up almost immediately after cleaning. So not only are they not anti-fog they are not even resistant to it since they continually fogged up immediately.

Huge waste of money.

I had purchased these goggles as a requirement for my chemistry class. I am pleased with my purchase, but with one little problem. Although these look quite sporty and are very comfortable compared to the other traditional chemistry goggles, they do tend to fog up after a good two to three hours. It indicates that they are anit-fog, but i suppose if you only use them for less than an hour. Either way, they have a very thick protective coating that is perfect against splashes and impact. A good economic choice with a stylish design.

The goggles serve well. This is only good for a good hour or two. It then starts to get really stuffy inside. But overall, a good chem goggle.

These goggles were fine for the first 10 minutes working in my Organic Chemistry Lab at school. Then they fogged up, and actually had massive drops of condensed water on the inside. Every few minutes I had to wipe them down, and since we're not allowed to remove our goggles while in the lab this could hardly be done properly. I was thoroughly ticked off and ended up using the communal goggles offered by the lab. GROSS!

I tried the DeWalt goggles first and it was a total joke, at least for my face. You really need to find a good fit. The DeWalt was too curved for my face, so much so that I can stick fingers through the bottom of the goggles. I originally saw this at a local Lowe's hardware store but ended up returning it because Amazon had it for so much less. Good fit. One thing to know is that the nose area has soft plastic "teeth" or "fingers" that shape to the nose bridge. It is not a continuous plastic seal. I realized it wasn't that important because when I place it over my respirator, my entire nose is under the face mask respirator anyways, so I tight seal is impossible with a respirator on.
