Has anyone used a pair of Bolle T-800 goggles in very dusty, windy conditions? I'm interested to know if the big gap between the frame and lens (which provides decent ventilation) allows too much crap inside to use them under harsh conditions.

Also, did anyone ever make "tear offs" for them?

Yes, it does. Bolle T800s are shit and I will never wear them again. You may as well wear nothing at all.

Thanks for the feedback!

I've had mine for several years, but I've never used them in a harsh environment when crap floating in the air was an issue.

t-800 was never intended to be used as a wind ,dust goggle.
very good for cqb and urban enviroments. it has a very good field of view and comfortable.

if you intend on using goggles around a windy and dusty enviroment, ess,oakley and others have such goggles.
i just wish i knew what happened to my t-800's, cant freakin find them anywhere ...........

look into FlakJak goggles, they run about $100 and I've only found them on one website but they are very highly spoken about.

Don't fog and don't let dust in due to their unique venting system

Military Morons has a good write up about them
