I've tried a lot of different glasses now and to be honest it's a bit of a sore point for me. I don't want to take risk with exposing my eye but i find so many types of eye protection to be a disadvantage.

The mesh goggles mess with my pariferal vision so I have issues seeing movement in woodland areas so I find they are only useful at urban sites.

Most of the masks I've found interfer with sighting up this includes the full face mesh mask, gas masks and its the same with the predator style full face masks. Oh on a side note the full face mesh mask are completly useless wherever the sun is involved, get the sun in your face you can't see anything.

I've ended up settling with shooting glasses, I don't like the sealed ones as they always steam up even using the best glass fog protection. But the open ones let air run behind the glass which means they clear really really quickly if they do steam up.

So in short I use jack Pyke shooting glasses as most of them are designed to work with real firearms, granted they won't stop a bullet but they are designed to take more than just a BB. If I play at an urban site the I will normally use mesh goggles.

I hope this helps and I hope some people can come up with ideas as this is doing my headin a little.
