    Safety glasses for the lake.

    While they don't float, you can find a tons of styles and sizes to fit. Plus most of them are under $10. I usually buy about 5 pair at one time, and keep them around my garage tools, motorcycle, watercraft, a pair in the jeep, etc...
    Look for Z87 rating if you are buying local. Home Depot has some decent ones.

    Good post Mark. How many of you have been cruising along and hit a rogue wave and crack your ribs on the handle bars? Thats why I wear clear lenses rather than dark sun glasses. Or the dragonfly that smacks you at 70mph in the nose? Always wear a "safety" polycarbonate type lens

    My favorites...but I cant seem to keep them on except to ductape them to my head!!!

    I usually combine them with duckys eyewear straps. I've come off the ski, and either they go swimming or fall around my neck.

    Look for the Z87 marking on the lens for OSHA approved design.

    I always wear "Z-87" safety glasses, they are basically my work safety glasses we wear at the refinery with prescription lenses and I choose a sport frame.
    they are on me whenever I cut/grind/machine, yardwork, or anything where I may need eye protection.

    Its a must to protect your eyes.

    I use the Bomber Floating Sunglasses. They come in different sizes and colors, and float. Mine were tested when I hit a swan going 68.7MPH. Didn't keep my nose from breaking but sure protected my eyes.

    I have some bomber shades too. Great choice. The side flotation makes my glasses fog.
