Fortunately, we’ve got you covered. Here are the best airsoft goggles to wear over glasses.

Choosing the best protection

Vision Protection

Protecting your glasses is the most important aspect of choosing your airsoft goggles.

You need to be able to airsoft in confidence, with full vision and the assurance that your expensive glasses are safe.

While metal mesh usually protects adequately against airsoft BBs, a point-blank shot may cause the mesh to shatter, putting your glasses (and your eyes) in danger! Despite the danger, some airsoft warriors still prefer metal mesh for its breathability.

This is why anti-fog measures and ventilation are so important to plastic airsoft goggles and facemasks.

A poorly ventilated mask will result in foggy goggles, shortness of breath, effusive sweating and lots of loud cursing!

Poor ventilation is most common among plastic airsoft goggles with few breathing holes in them. The simplest solution to ventilation is to buy goggles with anti-fog measures or ventilation.

If you’re looking for a full mask to protect your face, as well as your glasses, you could use a mask with powered fans that force air through the interior. Not only does this ensure that you can breathe well, but it also helps to counteract fogging.


One of the biggest mistakes people make leading to the purchase of ineffective airsoft goggles is to disregard the straps. The straps of your goggles are very important because, lo and behold, they keep them on your face!

A quality pair of airsoft goggles should have adjustable straps. This allows you to adjust them to accommodate your glasses. The material used in the straps is also important. Some airsoft goggles have elastic straps.

These are nice because they help to ensure a firm and secure fit with minimal movement. The disadvantage of elastic straps is that they have more of a tendency to wear out and break.

The alternative to elastic straps would be straps made of material similar to the seatbelt in your car.

These straps may not provide the same snugness as elastic straps, but some airsofters prefer this, as it puts less pressure on their bodies. Tight elastic straps can cause headaches.

When it comes to personal protection, it’s always worth doing your research and spending the money.

Airsoft goggles will rarely cost more than the price of a new pair of glasses… and will never cost more than your vision. Take a look at our full range of masks and eye protection to find your perfect pair.
