    If you are going to wear glasses during BCT do they give you black straps or do you have to buy they yourself?

    We just got some today... try a sporting goods store. I hope we got the right kind. There was a neoprene non-adjustable, but shorter type and a cotton, t-shirt like material, longer but adjustable type. I almost bought both, but went with the shorter neoprene. Hope they're fine!

    Yeah, Croakies are the way to go. They are fairly comfortable even on BCGs.

    Do you need to bring one even if you don't normally wear glasses?

    If you need any kind of corrective lenses, yes, you need one.
