    Jettribe goggles?

    So after loosing three pair of sunglasses. 1 Oakley and the other two were cheapies. Two of which had floating keepers on them. Which doesn't do a thing at 50MPH when you hit the water, as it rips off and sinks.

    I was thinking about trying these. http://store.jettribe.com/jta-091301...evo-lens-case/

    Has anyone used these?

    They are ok, the film they use on the optics tends to crack, but they do float and they are fairly well ventilated which means that they dont fog up.

    I seem to see alot of the racers using ski goggles, or something like that.
    What I cant figure is how you keep the water from spotting up on them, I have a hard time staying dry while riding - not like I'm trying.
    I've tried RAIN-X and some other products that claim same - with little success....

    If you like that style, go with Sea Specs instead. They're cheaper, have polarized lenses & offer a buy 2 get one free deal. Great deal if you want to also get a pair for the wife/girlfriend & get a spare one free. I've been wearing them for a few years & the only pair I've ever lost on the water was because I forgot to tighten the strap.

    I've got both the SeaSpecs and the cheaper Jettribe goggles that Q in Arizona noted. I like both. The Jettribe ones keep more water out of the eyes. I've had my contacts washed out of my eyes by big waves while wearing the SeaSpecs.

    And the only way to keep waterspots off the lenses - ride faster LOL

    I use a combination of RainX and riding faster. Lol. When my lenses get water on them I turn my head slightly so the air rushing by blows it off...spot free.

    We ordered SeaSpecs from Amazon. We returned them because we found that they would actually rub our eyes/eye lashes. Didn't even actually use them out on the water. But during MudBug, we saw a couple of people using goggles and we axed what they recommend. So we ended up buying the Smith Optics OTG, that's "over the glasses" model. We got the clear lenses and wear sunglasses with them.

    It works well! Some of the reviews say that they had to cut the foam around the edge in order to fit their glasses in them. However, we found that if we slip the sunglasses inside them and then put it all on as a single unit it works well. You might have to adjust and find your own preference.
