We use the Stealth goggles in all our chemistry labs and I think you will find that many other institutions do the same.  Depending on your supplier that can be comparable in cost to what you sent.  They are by far the best and most comfortable goggles for daily wear.

Subject: [DCHAS-L] Chemical splash google.

I am looking for better options for chemical splash googles for teaching labs. I found the following that are very optically clear and fit against the face. We have removed most hazardous chemicals from our general chemistry labs but not all. They are ANSI z87.1 rated.


I have had someone ask if general wrap around safety glasses mainly for biology labs also.


Would there be reason that these Bolle goggles are not as good as the big cheap, hard to see through googles and how many labs out there in academics and industry use the wrap around glasses that you see on tv shows being used?
