I posted this in safety, but it doesn't seem like a popular forum, so I've only gotten one response. I would like some more opinions. Though they were regarded as the best, OEM is no longer in business.

Which of these do you think is best for a 3w 445nm laser? These are the most recommended currently available glasses I could find and the price difference between them isn't a huge concern.

1. Laserglow claims OD7 (also offers 20% off - code: LPFGOGS):

2. Laser safety claims OD6+:
190-532 nm KTP and Argon Laser Safety Glasses

3. AixiZ claims OD5+:
LASER SAFETY GOGGLES 190-532nm, AixiZ

4. Eagle Pair claims OD4+ (also offers 10% off - code: LPF445):
Eagle Pair® 190-540nm & 800-2000nm Laser Safety Goggles

P.S.: Any recommendations for a second set of cheaper glasses when I want to briefly show the laser to a friend?

Thanks!

Ryan

any of those will likely suffice, though the eagle pair you listed is overkill, as it also blocks IR light. unless you plan to get IR lasers or non-IR filtered DPSS lasers, these are preferable and cheaper:

Eagle Pair® 190-540nm Standard Laser Safety Goggles

survival lasers is nice because they also have a version that fits over regular glasses if you or a friend wear them

I have a 4.7W 445nm that has still given me afterimage when burning when I had on OD4 glasses so maybe go with OD 5 or 6. it's a lot of power

I think I will go with the LaserGlow. Do you think the fitover style will work even if I don't wear glasses? They seem to offer more peripheral and they look better. They're only $79 with the discount and OD7+

These are the fitovers (as opposed to the sport style in the OP):

Thank you for your input!

Edit: I've ordered these. Thanks everyone.
