With swimming goggles, its best if you can try before you buy. I can’t stand that style of goggles because they seem to dig into my eye sockets, but I guess if its emergency use only its not so bad ? You can buy proper Smoke Resistant Goggles which are generally quite comfortable and are resistant to heat; they are similar in design to ski goggles. These are intended to be worn “all day” and are used by people fighting fires. They’re not too expensive approx $20+P&H, but will be more bulky than those swimming goggles.

I would love to know where they can be purchased and if they have a nose piece withen them since anything with a nose piece wouldnt work with a half mask.

There are many available. If you search any reputable search engine's Images you will see they type of thing. Of course you will see lots of "fashion" glasses/goggles, but look for something coming from a fire or safety shop.



Check any large, international shopping site for key words like "fire goggles" or "fire safey goggles" or "fire protective goggles" and they will come up with a few hits - remember to check world wide if you don't find anything locally.
