Subject: Cryogenics face shield?

A lab tech writes:
Do you have a recommendation for an appropriate face shield that people 
should be using when working with LN2? I've been searching the web and 
it's hard to find a specific recommendation for a face shield to be worn 
with cryogenics. I don't see any guidelines on OSHA that point to any 
particulars and nothing on the Cryogenic Society of America's site 
either. I would appreciate your assistance.

Does anyone have any favorites they'd like to recommend?
