Goggles

I am going to get a pair of goggles to wear when the weather turns shite.

I have been looking at Oakley Moto X goggles on ebay and was wondering whether they would be suitable for RIB use.

Any ideas?

They are fine for use on a RIB. It's what I used to have before I discovered the Save Phace mask which is in a diferent league.

Speaking of goggles, TK Maxx have Spy 'Soldier' and 'Orbit' ski/boarding goggles currently in stock. These are the absolute dogs bits and retail at 100. I bought a pair for my daughter yesterday for 29.99.

I've got a pair of Wiley-X's, as favoured by US tank commanders it seems.

"The removable gasket allows you to choose between a regular sunglass or a sealed goggle."

2008 RAYZOR UV400 ANTIFOG SKI SNOWBOARD GOGGLES RRP$119

These are a good buy on ebay

Mx goggles are much deeper to fit inside a helmet .

I can't see iether being much good if you are getting drenched
