Hi comrades.

I am looking for a pair of goggles that will fit with my Atlyn helmet. (Alexander replica)

I allready got a pair of Bollé x800 but they are to wide to fit.
I want the strap to be around the helmet but still protect my eyes. A tight fit.  icon_wink

Anyone who got good experience with a specific brand?

Regards,
Luffe

Hatch BOSS 6000 fits in the helmet well. You can move the visor up and down while wearing these goggles, and they provide some full seal.

I saw a picture once with OMSN wearing a set of these goggles, but they're not popular like ESS.

Do you want form or function?

The ESS is quite compact fitting, a friend uses it for mountainbiking with full face helmet.
It fits easily in there, and should fit altyn and whatever too

Which ESS?

For example my ESS Profile goggles do not give a full seal on an Altyn.

if you're going to use http://www.esseyepro.com/Profile-Series-Goggles_1_detail.html for playing
remove the ventilation foam
that will reduce the lens fogging

I was with him when he tried them out and no luck.

The frames were too wide for the helmet and did not sit well like the ESS NVGs pictured above. He was able to wear the goggles with the helmet but the lip of the K6-3 was at least 2 inches above the brow line which didn't look right. Might as well add that my Wiley-X SPEARs and Bolle x800 replica does not fit on my K6-3 either. Soviet dust goggles do fit however so you can use those for size reference.

I think the best bet for these kind of helmets is to go with something with frames as low profile as possible. I was going to pick up some Hatch BOSS 6000s like neoptolmus recommended but they seem to be out of stock everywhere.

Edit:

Actually, just ordered a pair of Hatch BOSS 6000. Didn't want to pay near full retail for them but the other stores had them on backorder.

Edit 2:

Just received word that the Hatch BOSS 6000s have been discontinued and as far as the stores I have tried buying from say, no warehouse stocks remain. Well damn.

On another note, my new pair of Bitter End Ground Zero goggles fit under the K6-3 with the visor up and down.

. Thank you for the feedback... I have also been looking for the Hatch BOSS 600... But I will also need the prescription lens inserts, which are impossible to find...

I am ready to throw my desert locust googles in the bin!
For me, they are absolutly no good at all, they are fogging up constantly even after i removed all the foam.

This problem seems to be my curse, the only googles i can't fog up is some old pair from a Flex8 paintball mask. Undecided

Well finally some news.

I stumbled upon a picture that i have had for a long time on my computer.
It shows a FSB operator with the BLACKHAWK SPECIAL OPERATIONS GOGGLES and its in use with the Atlyn helmet.   icon_banana


(http://www.blackhawk.com/product/Special-Operations-Goggles,532,8.htm)

I've had good experience with the brand Defog It http://www.defogitworks.com/.

At one of my local fields, I have to wear face protection (like Brass Guard masks) and full seal goggles underneath my K6-3 even with the visor down! On top of all that I always wear a balaclava so you might expect fogging would be a serious problem for me. I used the Defog It wipes variant on the inside and outside of the lenses and on the lenses on my K6-3 and after about 5 hours of intense play in 80 degree Fahrenheit weather, I only encountered very minimal fogging during the night games. Another application of the Defog It wipes in that case would have done the trick. I recommend you give them a try.

I dunno if that specific brand can be acquired in Denmark, but we do have other defog sprays. Honestly i have never had the pleasure of trying. Never had high thoughts about such witch craft but maybe I'll give it a try.  wink

Last MilSim game i had BIG trouble with fogging. (I used both Bollé x800 and Bollé silium)

It gets kinda hot with a helmet and a balaclava on.  sad07

hmm I would like to mention this, but remember how I said my desert locusts don't fit?

I used a cheapo chinese brassguard and it fits rather snugly now, and I could lower the visor too.... but if I could, I'd like to get even lower profile goggles

Those seem to fit pretty good. But the strap is beneath the helmet, not on the outside :/
