Goggles--The Most Important Piece Of Gear You Will Own

Paintball 2Xtremes MagazineWith hundreds of paintballs traveling 200 miles per hour across the field, there is only one thing that will protect you eyes from severe injury--your goggles system. The statistics bear it out, more than 99% of all serious paintball injuries occur when players use the wrong type of goggles, or no goggles at all. Here' the most important thing you need to know. Never wear anything but goggle/mask systems made specifically for paintball.

Never wear shop goggles, ski goggles, military goggles, motocross goggles, or any other goggles that are not designed for paintball. They simply will not have the impact resistance or total eye coverage necessary to stop 13 balls per second coming at you.
