My mentor and friend is giving up his frap hat and wants to know what would be a good full face to use with glasses.

I can't get sunglasses on in my oxygen, but i noticed a few glasses wearing people in Mamba's

Might be an option?

If he can't be bothered to try on several brands, then he's not much of a shopper....

(If it's a small DZ, with few people wearing full faces and no store, then the words "road trip" springs to mind.

Yep! My Mamba worked fantastic (with glasses underneath) for the new Woman's World Record! Smile

I have used a Bonehead Havok that worked really well with my glasses. I switched to an open face mostly because I like my face in the breeze gut I also had some fogging problems. Unfortunately I also have the same problem with goggles. By the way, the Havok is for sale.

It really depends on face size/shape. I've got plenty of room for my glasses in my Z1, but many people find it too small for glasses. I'm able to put my helmet on and take it off without taking off my glasses.

I prefer my Bonehead Havok. Others are OK, at best. Havok is perfect for me. I used to own a Z1.

I can get wraparound sunglasses under my OXYGN (I don't need prescription lenses), and a guy I jump with wears his glasses under a Z1 just fine.

It is so very dependent on the size of your face and the size and style of the glasses that you really have to try and see.

I own a Mamba. A friend who wears glasses asked to try it to see if it worked with his glasses -- and it worked fine. He borrowed it for a jump and said that's the one for him.

I have also heard the Freezr helmet will allow glasses.

I've just bought a Freezr and I love it. It fits over my glasses very easily and is comfortable. The only drawback is that it has an internal pocket for an audible and in practice I find it awkward to place my Protrack in a comfortable position. Its also the only Freezr on my DZ so I stand out a mile!

I was leaning towards a FreezR and I did try some on but I didn't try them with the Neptune...Hmmmm back to the drawing board.
