Im looking for 2 pairs of 405nm goggles in Europe for a decent price.
I found those, could they be trusted to give enought protection from a 100mW 405nm laser?

If not, can anyone help me to find some goggles in Europe at a good price?

the problem is they are untested. they could work well or they could suck. check the yellow link in my signature for tested laser glasses. they are not all inside EU but you can take those glasses and then search for them in the EU

Yea, i guess they are untested, is there a acceptable way to test the goggles without a LPM? Aiming the beam straight at the glasses and see what gets through or is there a risk that there might be alot of invissible UV getting trough?

that is a VERY unscientific way of testing them but in order to do this you are putting your eyes at risk. even if you buy two pair to test (wear one and test the other). if it turns out they dont block any 405nm then the pair your wearing is useless and your eyes were exposed. its not worth the risk and remember, whats the price you put on your vision? is it going to be $7 glasses or tested, certified glasses that you know are doing their job

those are better than nothing and will block a decent amount of light but they are not certified so use at your own risk. if you get those buy two and then you can test them yourself. you will probably need a camera to test them. shine the beam through the glasses onto a white piece of paper and then take a picture of it (you probably wont be able to see the dot since your double filtering the laser; glasses you are shining the laser through and the ones your wearing)
