    Default Can't see where I'm going

    Well I finally got to the point where I have to ask what do you guys wear over your glasses so you can see where the hell you are going when you get to the big end of a run. I have to let out of it so my eyelids will quit flapping and watering the shit out of my eyes. Don't want to wear a helmet in a lake boat. And don't want to look like a dork either. Any suggestions?

    Well my boat won't run hard enough for me to worry bout that but they sell glasses with a foam perimeter around the inside of them that keeps the wind out of your eyes for riding bikes. I've been 180+ with these and I also wear Oakley batwolfs that seem to fit my face pretty good at high speeds

    Can I wear them over my glasses? And where do you get them?

    Oakley desert goggles work real well if you wear glasses ... it don't matter what you look like safety first ... and if you ever get hit by a horse fly at over a 100 mph YOU will thank god you had them on ...

    When I go boating, I use cheap Iron-man plastic no bs cheapies. They are usually the upper frame only with blade styling. They don't allow air to circulate behind the lenses and zero tear eyelid flapping disturbances.

    Aviation tear drop shaped sun glasses glasses do the trick. i have to wear them when I drive my boat. my regular glasses pull my eye lids open too.

    That's what I am using now, they are a medium lens aviator style, they allow the wind to batter the hell out of my eyelids. And they fit close to my face. figure I'll cover them with goggles and also prevent them from being ripped from my face. I have lost several pair that way.
