Could anyone please tell me how these goggles compare to popular brands such as those sold by Wicked? Are they as protective? What of protection for DX lasers? Thanks!

Photongeek - here is the info as posted in the other thread that is linked to in the first post :

However that was just because of the goggles fluorescing. Its hard to put a definite figure here since I can't assume my extra IR filters are perfect, and its hard to measure such low powers with my equipment, but the OD seems to measure somewhere in the 3-5 range.

That said, here are my opinions on the small portion of the goggles that I got (I was sent a ~1"x1" sample):

First off, my complaints with these NesShades are like my complaints about the OD 6+ goggles that NL sells - you cannot see the dot. The visibility between the two is actually amazingly similar, although my meters to show the the OD 6+ as blocking much more green. With a 50mW green though, you can't see the dot at all unless you're really looking hard for it. To me, that is a critical problem. Protection is good, but when you have to take the goggles off to aim the laser there's a problem.

The other issue I have is VLT. The non-green light trasmitted (you want this to be high), is slightly lower than with the WL lasershades, and a good bit lower than the NL OD 6+. Its not bad by any measure, but it leaves room for improvement.



So here's my ultimatum on them:

- They provide more than adequate protection for any greenie you're likely to have (easily good for 1W+ of 532nm). If these goggles are much cheaper than WL or NL, they will be good budget goggles as they definitely provide the protection.

- If you aren't on such a tight budget, both the WL and NL goggles are better. The WL lasershades/sports elites would be my personal choice as they also provide good protection, but let you easily see the dot. The NL goggles have the same fatal visibility flaw as the NesShades, but offer better VLT. So in either case, you get what you pay for if you pay the premium.


PS: Sorry, too lazy/busy for pictures right now.

G !

P.S. Selective parts to answer your specific question have been bolded....

Also, a request to the people who purchased the shades, tell me what you think about them!

i'd love a pair but finances right now are a shambles. I'm having to sell my dorcy's to pay rent this month. Hopefully you will have more soon.
