    The funny thing is, I have to keep reminding people in here that I wear a traditional helmet, (with goggles) not a progressive one like the Phenix.

    easy. they won't go for it. face shields are only secondary eye protection. bourke's don't even qualify as that according to NFPA.

    tell your admin to issue all members safety glasses that meet NFPA standards. then you can put whatever other secondary protection you want (bourkes, faceshield, saran wrap, etc) ,and still be in full complience on safety.

    Ever drop your lid with the 4" facesheld?

    I have... and 99.9% of the time, the face shield breaks.

    "Chief, my faceshield is broken.. can I have another one?"

    "Again?"

    I have the ESS goggles on my N5A, I also have a pair of bourkes that I took off the lid, because goggles and bourkes together are geeky looking.

    I agree with boxalarm, bourkes are cool, not really functional, but cool nonetheless. 4" faceshields suck, as crap can still get into your eyes even if they are down. 4" shields also tends to discolor very quickly, and they melt and become loverly blobs of plastic hanging from the lid.

    there is a nice long thread still fesh from the last battle

    i think the big debate is between bourkes and goggles/glasses

    i think pretty much everyone agrees that regular face shields are junk
