So long neck pain.

Your neck wouldn't hurt as bad if your climber wasn't hang-dogging each bolt, or if you were belaying with Y & Y Plasfun Belay Glasses. With high-transparency prisms, the Plasfun lets you see your climber without actually looking up, and the plastic construction keeps the frame light, flexible, and solid. In fact, the frame is so flexible that it can be worn over sunglasses or glasses. The Plasfun comes in an anti-shock case, and that case includes a carabiner so you can clip it to your harness.

Budget belaygles

    If you are looking to save your neck for many pitches to come these are a great choice. They fit well on your face and the rubberized surface helps to keep them on your face. The only difference I have noticed between these and more expensive belaygles is that the mirrors have a narrower field of view than others. Plus these guys come with a case!

    Great purchase I made for my girlfriend. She used to complain about the strain climbing put on her neck from looking up and how it affected her sleep. The glasses were a huge help. Highly recommended to alleviate the neck strain.

    I got these as a gift after complaining about my belayer's neck a few too many times. I tried to get used to them at home, bad idea. I thought I hated them, felt terrible when wearing them etc......but I finally took them to the climbing gym and I'm now officially converted. As soon as there was something real to see in the mirror instead of a blank ceiling, all nausea/dizziness/etc was gone, and I had a super happy neck by the end of the session which hasn't happened in a long time. The frame is also super comfortable and doesn't slide down my nose even when I'm sweating.

    PT recommended

      I use belay specs in the gym. Most of the walls are too steep to comfortably watch a climber up an entire route and I am sure the specs have made me more attentive.
      I don't use them very much outdoors. They aren't as useful on vertical routes, and usually just get left sitting around (mine have narrowly escaped being stepped on a few times and I don't think they'll prove very durable once my luck runs out).

      If you can't beat them...

        They may look silly, but holy hell do these specs make belaying a lot more comfortable. They aren't very applicable for multi-pitch scenarios, but if you're belaying a bunch at the gym or a crag, these things alleviate neck pain ten-fold. Using them can be a little funky at first, but you'll get used to it by the end of the day if you belayed enough climbers.

        Clear and comfortable

        Does the job and my neck is happier for it.

        My only complaint is that after a few days of hanging the carrying case from my harness by the included carabiner, the loop on the case frayed and failed. There is a second velcro attachment method.

        First world problems, I know, but these really help your neck when you're belaying all day long. I used to make fun of people wearing these things, then I tried them, and now I won't go back! These are a great price compared to other belay glasses on the market. Highly recommended!
