If I could describe this product in two words, it would be: absolutely worthless. I originally bought these for my Firefighter II class last fall. Since the majority of the class is truck related tasks (ventilation, extrication, forced entry, etc), I figured I would get heavy use out of these.
When they arrived, I noticed they were flimsy and cheap looking. The eyecups looked shallower than the picture. But, given the price, I gave it a pass. I eagerly packed them with my school stuff.

I bought these to use for wildland firefighting. I thought they'd be a nice replacement because I wasn't crazy about the larger goggles I had been using. I keep all my gear in a bag.
