Okay, there are two groups of folks looking at this item, Steampunk costume folks and welders.

For the welders:
- Well built, inexpensive
- Both the clear and shaded glass were flat and well-attached
- The ventilation on the goggles was especially good

For the steampunk folks:
- The googles themselves are rubber-plastic, would need decoration
- Strap is decidedly modern looking
- There is (safety) text on the lenses
- Look pretty good and are cheap

Pros :

Filters are easily removed, and can be replaced with darker filters (e.g. #14 for viewing the sun)
Fits over glasses
Vents (4 of them) to prevent fogging
Flip up design convenient

Cons :

Not very flexible, does not fit well on the sides
Bottom part cuts rather uncomfortably into my cheeks

Long description :

I was very amused to read in the reviews that hardly anyone bought this for eye protection or welding. Most seem to find it a great costume accessory. It does look like a pretty good prop for a mad scientist or steampunk costume. I didn't get it for welding either - I bought it assuming that the filters can be replaced with #14 filters so that they can be used for viewing the sun, and I'm happy to find out my assumption is correct.

The other nice thing about this goggles is that it fits over prescription glasses easily, something I specifically looked for.

The flip up element consists of one plastic lens in front, and the 50mm #5 green glass filter behind it. They're held in place with a plastic ring that screws into a plastic thread to hold them in place. The goggles part is also removable using the same ring attachment, and consists of one plastic lens. There are two notches on the ring for fingerhold when unscrewing / replacing the ring. See the photo (one lens removed) for a better description.

There are two vents above and two below. They're angled to prevent most dust from entering. I'm not sure that makes much of a difference, though, because there are large gaps on the upper left and right corners (near my temples) large enough for me to stick my fingers in easily. I also tried the goggles on while wearing a disposable 3M N95 mask.

Amazon search directly me here for solar eclipse glasses. This is bad because after a bit of research, it shows that you need at least shades 14 to use it to watch the sun

I got these for my Doctor Horrible's Sing-Along Blog costume and they ROCK.
They cause an indentation on the forehead if you wear them like Dr. Horrible; but Moleskin can solve that problem.
See you at Dragon*Con!

I found these to be worth the price. Heck, for the price, I'm thinking about getting a back-up pair! They're comfortable even when I'm wearing glasses. They feel secure, no slippage. The flip-down lenses are dark enough for oxy welding, but can still be used as sunglasses in a pinch (more on that in a sec)!

The glass in all 4 lenses are heavy-duty. They're all replaceable, which is great for two reasons: the outer lenses will get damaged from sparks etc after a while, and I can get a prescription filled to replace the inner lenses! They're just fine with my glasses on, but I'd rather have one less thing on my face that can fog up.

When my motorcycle helmet's shield had to be replaced, I used these as cycling goggles. They kept the wind (and bugs) out of my eyes. The tint on the flip-down made fine (if oddly green) sunglasses, the fact that they were flip-y was convenient as heck. And some of the looks I got were priceless!

For Steampunks and Horribles: as far as I can tell, these ARE the ones used in Dr. Horrible right down to the funky-patterned elastic (just need a little paint), and can also be modded easily for any Steamy costuming. Get some spraypaint made for plastic from the hardware store, mask the lenses before applying, and voila. The blue part pictured and the black vents are flexible, easy to cut and/or poke holes in to mount decorative hardware. Just remember, once painted or otherwise modded DO NOT USE TO WELD WITH, they are no longer safety goggles, they are an accessory!

Overall, very satisfied, thinking about getting a second pair.

When I got these, they were NOT Hobart goggles. They were an off-brand. However, I kept them as I needed a pair of O-A welding goggles right away. They are usable, but that's about all I can say. To top it off, one eye has a darker lens than the other! Not enough to make them unusable for my uses, but enough to be annoying. I don't run a welding shop by any means, I just do routine maintenance where I maybe use the torch a couple times a month so I can live with it, but I would never buy these again, nor can I recommend them to anyone else.

Not what I would consider professional equipment, but it will do for the little oxy-acetylene work I do.

Got this for my Charles Snippy outfit, and they totally rock. As many people mentioned, they are not very comfortable. The primary issue is that, while the nose area fits fairly well, the plastic there digs into my cheek and the bridge of my nose. I glued a piece of fabric to it, and it feels much better.
As for looks, it's huge on me, but whatever. My Snippy jacket looks awful, too. Unfortunately, the Good Directorate does not exist, and they can therefore not manufacture official fireproof jackets. Bummer.
For versatility, I can use these out on the road as sunglasses, since they fit over my glasses (and I lost my prescription sunglasses awhile back so this is SWEET). I don't do any welding, but I am getting into blacksmithing, so again, sweet!
One other complaint (which is not a great complaint) is that there is safety information on the lenses. Now, this is fine on the glass shades (not too intrusive, and I can sand it off if necessary), but on the plastic lenses they use raised lettering along the edge. NOT COOL. It's basically a big blur line that you can only make worse if you try to remove it. Bleah.
Otherwise, super-cool. Would recommend.
