    Question Best PWC goggles

    Since technology changes so radically from year to year, I have to ask this question, "I want to get the best pair of PWC goggles I can for this coming season. They must protect the eyes from wind at 70+mph and from flying debris and insects, they cannot fog up, they must have very clear optics, they must allow for peripheral vision, and they must be comfortable and durable. I don't care what they look like." Does anyone have any suggestions that comply with my specifications?

    Just a few of my observations over the years:

    I used to wear the Smith and Wesson Safety goggles. I loved them until I almost cut my face off crashing into a wave!

    I don’t like Specs, the lenses get scratched too easily and the elastic is poor and stretches too much.

    I am considering either Wiley-X SG-1s or SeaSpecs.

    I would like to know as well. I use a pair of wrap arounds. I currently wear a pair of i spys, rain -X them everytime I go out and wear a floating cord. But I too only get a season out of them because they scratch up. I have noticed the cheaper sunglasses don't hold up as well as the pricer ones.

    I picked up the Waterjackets from Oakley and replaced the lenses with Oakley RX lenses. Works great. The only difference is you don't get the little holes around the edge of the lenses as you see in the picture...
