latest safety glasses are annoying me; they fog up pretty easily. What are you guys using?

Revision Sawfly ballistic shields.  These will actually hold up to sunscreen, DEET, and belly flopping in the swimming pool.  Oakleys will crumble.  I finally threw my box of broken Oakley parts in the trash.  I wish I had spent that money on hookers and blow.

This, but I've got dark lenses as well.

And I'm using the 2.0 ballistic M frame.

I got some goggles.

I had trouble with glasses not sitting right, and interfering with ear pro. Goggles have good venting and an elastic band versus two plastic earpieces.

Usually the native sunglasses I wear all the time anyway, they're impact rated and wrap around pretty good.

There's really nothing special about eye protection.  There are clearly defined standards that are pretty good and are easily fulfilled by cheap, readily available options in every home improvement store in the nation.  Sure you can spend a few hundred on some fancy-ass coolguy shades with some bitchin ad copy that makes them sound like they'd stop a fucking meteor, but there are no independent standards beyond the regular ones used throughout the industry and your coolguy specs wouldn't fare any better than the three buck generics if they did.

More concerned about fogging and visual obstructions like upper frames that may interfere with some shooting positions.
I used to use racquetball glasses; they were frameless and generally stayed clear but still fogged up occasionally.

some radians for trap/skeet shooting
and some pair of yellow frames shooting glasses that are probably 12 years old.
Nothing too fancy.

I don't remember the brand name, and it's not on them anywhere. Something with polarized lenses that were about $30 at Home Depot. Been wearing them everyday as sunglasses for at least 3 years and haven't broken them yet.

I have a small face too and I hate wearing my flaks because of it. 5 squared is where is at

for all the older gents here, this is what Ol Scruff has found. Amazon has safety glasses that are full lens
magnifiers. I use 1X and it makes that front sight clear as can be. they have other powers to choose from,
the brand is Elvex. eleven bucks, i think.

Based on recommendations on a thread like this I bought these, and they are perfect for me. They easily and comfortably fit under the ear pro.

ESS Eyewear Crossbow Suppressor

"The ESS Crossbow Suppressor is the first spectacle frame designed for use with ear cup hearing protection and communications devices. Featuring Z-Bend Geometry, the frame's ultra-thin temple arms help keep noise out by minimizing the effect on the padded seal of ear cups. The slim temples eliminate the hot spots and pressure points that commonly occur when normal eyewear is worn under ear cups."

Smith Aegis Echo Compact. Super comfortable, easy lens interchange, lightweight, comfortable under ear pro.

ESS ICE Naro with over the ear type hearing protection.
M frame 2.0 or ESS Crossbow with earplugs.

Though I may replace the Ice Naro with the crossbow suppressor for lens commonality
