    I spent > $100 on ballistic eye protection for my Army son because the Army Issue goggles fog up whenever they are worn by someone with a body temperature above freezing. :rolleyes:

    He better be wearing his eye protection! :squint:

    Hearing protection and eye protection are manditory on my ship.
    If you get caught without them, stand by to stand by.

    Edit: Actually, this goes for any PPE specifically needed for a given task.

    That's strange man. I'm in an Ohio National Guard maintenance unit, basically at the bottom of the barrel. We got one pair of regular goggles, a pair of ESS goggles, and Wiley's.
