    Eyewear while riding

    So after losing my second pair of prescription sunglasses while jetskiing I got contacts. I tried a pair of speedo swim goggles and i wasn't crazy about them. Anyone have any good suggestions that is in a similar situation?

    Check out Gander Mountain or Bass Pro they have goggles that are larger than the ones on amazon and only cost about 20 bucks or less. i even wear a pair of sunglasses under them. They work good and last a couple of years then just get a new pair.

    I left a pair of prescription glasses at the bottom of the lake too.

    I have SeaSpecs which are similar to the Birdz-eyewear, but I don't wear them much anymore. They do stay on, but water still gets underneath and I lose a contact lens or two, hence daily wear contact lenses. I also carry a spare pair of contact lenses on the ski just in case.

    I now wear the Jet Tribe classic ride goggles. Comfy foam and big lenses. Have yet to lose a contact to a big wave.

    IMHO, they're pretty cool looking too.

    I wear a pair of Liberty Sport "Torque" prescription glasses. I am very nearsighted and it was one of the lower priced styles that is RX-able. They have enough foam around the frame to float on their own but I still have a floaty strap. Cost me right at $300 with a dark black tint and polarized.

    Birdz have shipped, expecting them Thursday. No info on the jettribe goggles. I'll report back my opinion after trying them out. Appreciate the responses.

    I used SeaSpecs for a long time before finding Birdz. Same thing, just a little less expensive Birdz.
