Who all uses or has used these? And your opinion.

I wear the Top Jimmy.  And my fiance wears a pair of WileyX glasses as well.

We got them at http://www.talonarms.com

I have a pair of Wiley X SG-1. Don't wear them anymore. They fog up really easy. I'm a lot happier with my Oakley Ballistic M Frames 2 or Gascans.

I have a pair.  I love them.  I have a small face, and they fit me well.  I also have very light eyes, and the lenses work better at shielding light than any I've ever had before.

I have Oakley's, and the WileyX are much better for me.

My experience as well.  The SG-1 do rank as the fastest to fog glasses/goggles I've ever owned.

I hate the issue ones. They just don't fir my face, and are either falling off or else pulled into the eye socket if I use the band.

Most guys seem to  like them, so I trade mine for the ESS ICE glasses.

I have a pair I use over my prescription glasses when I shoot steel plates with FMJs. Takes a little balancing, but with what my specs cost I'm not taking any chances. They have some sort of sealing deal but I took it off so the things would fit.

I would like them if I used them solo, but then I couldn't  see the plates.

I had the photosensitive glasses with the foam surround, and they solidly sucked ass.  Didn't get dark, and had 2 jets of air shooting into my eyes on the bike.

My bother brought me back some interchangable lens M type deals that Uncle Sam gave him in the desert.  I like em.  A lot.


HOWEVER

I've read a thread here, started by Pat Rogers IIRC, about how most shades other than Oakleys, have some distortion issues, which may, or may not, get you killed.  I mentioned this to my bro, and he said it was a known issue in the sandbox.

Nice shades, but range use only for me.

My Wileys fog up quick.



I prefer Oakley Gascans....

I've had a pair of their sunglasses (don't remember what model they are) for a couple of years now and like them just fine.
