Fit problems
Not great. Less than comfortable with my glasses. Looks like I need to buy an old fashioned hood. Without glasses I think they would be great.Thanks,Bruce G.

Sufficient for training, but you do get more peripheral view through than i woild like for true IFR. No worse than any others though

They do fit very comfortably.

These work for IFR training. My two nits would be how it fits under my headset (I have a Lightspeed) and in doesn't offer much protection against bright sunlight when you have eyes that prefer sunglasses. So far they have held up well bouncing around my flight bag.

Instant IFR Glasses
Now that I'm working towards an instrument rating, my instructor advised that I would need some type of vision restriction in my training. I have used the big visors but not impressed with having to wear this weird version of a welding helmet. The "foggles", as we call them, are comfortable over my prescription glasses and are adjustable in all directions. AND.... I can't see past the panel!!

Is it possible to purchase the Foffles with a reading pane (2x power readers) ?
rick s on Jul 6, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No, The foggles would go over your prescription glasses.
Also how does the IFR glasses 1743A compare to ViBAN IFR hood? thx
Henry A on Jun 13, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I wear prescription glasses when I fly and found the IFR glasses to be very uncomfortable and not provide complete coverage resulting in seeing outside the cockpit. The hood, on the other hand, is very comfortable even with my glasses. It provides excellent coverage so there is no cheating. I hope this helps.
what are the pros -cons of clear vs yellow tint ? thanks
Henry A on Jun 13, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The tint acts like sunglasses.
