Default Help with goggles

I've read the various threads here concerning laser goggles. *I'm looking for 532nm goggles at an optical density of OD4 (or 5).

The problem I have with Wicked is that they do not list the specs for their goggles. *Laser safety is not a casual matter. *I would rather not purchase something that is unrated.

Googling for Goggles on the internet reveals a variety of prices - many from $200 to $400 range. Obviously I would prefer the $30 to $50 range.

As far as I can determine... the really expensive goggles have glass lenses, whereas the sub-$100 goggles are polycarbonate (makes sense).

So the $45 question is... can someone point me to a source of goggles that actually show ratings (e.g., 532nm with OD4) that are reasonably priced? *(for use with a 200mw laser)

Mahalo nui loa!

Well, the sport deluxe from wicked boast an OD of 2-3 for 532, and they work fantastic - there is no bright glow at all, no scatter, etc. The ones for RED are in my opinion - toooo protective. I cannot see ANYTHING red with them on - the beam, the spot, nada ! I know this wasn't the exact answer to your question, but that's all I can do for you this time ! I have several lasers - a freak 120, an Aries 175 that runs at 194mw constantly, and they work perfect for me. Windstrings bought some goggles from Laserglow, and they are a higher OD than mine are - but the price was MUCH higher as well - check with him to get the correct amount, as the price elludes me at the moment.

Go to the WL website and scroll down - they even have an output graph...

No IR filtering though - almost as bad as dark sunglasses for IR...
