Question Goggles/Glasses

Does anyone know if the JT Proteus fits well with glasses? Also the Dye Invision?

If none of these do, which goggles fit well?

i don't think those 2 are the greatest for glasses(meaning they are a little tight). I do know that the vforce shield or morph are great for glasses

Yes the V-force is great with glasses, and they are a better mask then the proteus or invision.

any JT mask can accomidate glasses. The proteus is just tighter. The dye will kill you if you wear glasses and vforce are pretty good w/ glasses.

I wear glasses and I use a proteus and it works great. My glasses are large frame too so if your frames are medium to small then that would be even better. I haven't had any problems with my proteus and glasses but if you can get something that is bigger to accomodate then get it because then there is less of a chance of smashing your frames up.

JT masks are good with glasses, yes, so long as you get the Spectra models. Not the Elite masks. My nVader squeezed the sides of my glasses pretty badly. Still not as good as V-Force masks, which not only fit nicely over glasses, but also the thick foam supports them so that they don't slip off.

the vforce morph and shield have a larger lens than the armor and conquest, so you might want to consider that

By a long shot! The proteus and invision both really push the glasses into your face. At least they did for me. There was no room what so ever.
The V-force masks have been the best I've found for comfort and room.

I was going to buy a proteus until I tried one on. It really did push the glasses into my face, so I decided to go with the V-Force.

Never looked back since. Now going to upgrade from a V-force Shield to a Profiler.

Falling face first with the visor on wouldn't had helped so don't worry about it

profiler all the way for glasses. hands down. nothing better. small profile and fits great with glasses. has lots of room between the lens and the frames of the glasses. i had a flex and the arms of my glasses would hit the sides and ding up the lens. and when i went to put it on it often took a while as the mask would hit my glasses and knock them down.

I can understand that. The thing is that the Invision pushes them too hard. It's so uncomfortable (almost painfull) it's distracting IMO. It wasn't that much better around the ears either. You could always get a strap for your glasses to hold them in place. I think that would be more comfortable instead of the Invision trying to make contacts out of my glasses.

If you can, I'd try some on at a field or shop. That's going to be the only true ay to see what will fit your face and glasses the best.
