Guarder GX-1000 Anti-Fog Tactical Shooting Goggle System (Set with two spare lens) by Guarder / Matrix
The GX1000 Goggles are by far some of the most popular eye protection worldwide. Modeled after T-800 goggles, they provide great protection and great airflow preventing lens fogging. The adjustable head strap is backed with an anti-slip coating to ensure the goggles stay secure to your face. A lower half mask is required to provide full face protection.
The GX1000 kit includes not only the standard clear lens, but also a yellow and a smoked lens to suit different weather and lighting conditions. The kit also includes a soft carrying case to protect the goggles when not in use. The gray / shaded lens will absorb 90% of harmful luminous ray, providing UV protection, and is designed for bright environments. The Clear lens provides full vision, maximum brightness and color. The yellow lens is designed to absorb low wavelength light (blue, purple) designed for dusk, foggy and other similar environments.

Guarder / AIM / Matrix Guarder GX-1000 Airsoft Goggles Review by Gaming Shogun
Sometimes, less is more – a lot more. While I have had the pleasure of reviewing some really excellent, expensive goggle systems, the GX-1000 from Guarder ranks among the most functional and comfortable I have ever worn. Better yet, this pair of goggles is only about $25 dollars.
Outwardly, the Guarder GX-1000 goggles appear somewhat skeletal, like the BOLLE T-800 goggles they are designed after. The black, thin rigid frames are shielded behind a large, poly-carbonate lens, give the whole thing a spartan appearance. The goggles feature an elastic, adjustable strap which easily fits around most helmet types – although, I did not have a PASGT helmet to try it with.
As for added accessories, the Guarder GX-1000 will not disappoint you. In the box comes a cleaning cloth/soft pouch for storage as well as two extra lenses – one yellow and the other smokey. Again – this is all for $25 dollars. In terms of construction, the goggles feel very solid and the wrap around shape makes it easy to fit them over prescription lenses. The poly-carbonate lenses are all 100% UV-A/B filtering as well as meet MIL-SPEC, OSHA, and ANSI standards for safety.
The poly-carbonate lens sits slightly away from the frame, which could be an issue for some fields as there is a small gap in between where, technically, a BB could fit. However, the lens is taller than the frame – so, in order for that to happen, the shooter would have to be firing from directly above or below you. Personally, I never had an issue with it while I was using it. One HUGE benefit to this gap between the lens and the frame is that the goggles simply do not fog up – air and moisture do not get trapped inside them like full-seal goggles.
In terms of protection, the lenses are very rigid and easily take BB strikes. I had the unfortunate luck of getting sprayed across the face by an opposing player with a PolarStar and the goggles didn’t even show a scratch. I have the utmost confidence in this set of goggles.
Overall, Guarder’s GX-1000 airsoft goggles are an excellent purchase and, without a doubt, feature the best “bang for your buck” in any airsoft goggles I have yet to try. The Guarder GX-1000 is $25 dollars over at EVIKE.com.
