If you are using prescription glasses with side shields, make sure they are Z27 rated. You shouldn’t have to worry about this much as long as your glasses don’t come from a NYC alley. Gloves are also required to be held to FRC standards of being made from durable material and free of holes. Closed toed shoes are also required as well as long pants as you should be aware.
