    They look like knock-off Wiley-X.

    The thing about safety glasses at Home Depot is that you can be relatively sure that they've passed tests for impact resistance and will be effective, even if they look dorky. The same can not be said for random no-name glasses or goggles from online sellers on auction sites.

    Go buy a pair of clear safety glasses, often find them in the hunting section of Wally's, Target, Harbor Frt, Nothern Tools, etc.

    Yeah, because we all want look like the bad guys from Teenage Mutant Turtles :rofl

    These would go perfectly with a stretched and lowered 'Busa, wife beater, piss-pot helmet and shorts.

    Whaaaaaa?????? I love that this exists - but I can't imagine how anyone could think that this is a better solution than a full face - Seriously!

    To each his own

    I'll definitely get one if I'm going to madmax fest!

    Lol!! I agree with you, full face helmet is sooo much better, my only reasoning was I wanted a motorcycle helmet that was close to the Raiders helmet... Put the emblems on... But when it's cold.. The open face stinks.... And the neoprene masks stink...(My kids little league football team is the raiders).... I sometimes ride to his games...it's all in fun...
