by Tested_to_Destruction

A pair of welding goggles are a required piece of welding equipment. The five best welders goggles, reviewed and compared.

A pair of welding goggles are similar to standard safety goggles - only they're specially designed for welders and the welding industry. Their purpose is to protect the wearers eyes from ultra violet light, sparks and metal debris -.not to mention the harmful effects from the heat that's generated during the welding process.

Of those currently available, they're generally small by design, fit neatly around the eyes and will provide the appropriate protection despite their diminutive size. As a user, it's up to the individual purchaser to buy the correct welders goggles - as an example arc welding doesn't require the same type of manufacture as a pair meant for gas welding.

The five best welding goggle models are featured below. They're all best selling in their category, are relatively inexpensive and will provide the wearer with the protection required according to the type of welding performed.

There's a set of two lenses - one clear, one with the appropriate level of shading needed for welding and for the price they're durable, fit for purpose and won't blow the budget.
