Goggles for bad weather

Any suggestions for waterproof goggles for bad weather, on RIBS daily for work and need waterproof goggles for this Great British weather.
Thanks in advance

Motocross goggles work well. They're not waterproof as such, but motocross tends to be pretty wet and the ventilation means that they don't fog up too badly.

I've started using skydiving goggles, they have worked good so far in the rain.

I've never wished/regretted I'd not had Goggle's while I had a Ghecko on Board....
I HAVE the other way round!

RIBase
We use these as RTC goggles on the appliance and there may just be a pair or two on board.

Bolle Pilot Safety Goggles | Safety Goggles | Screwfix.com

To be honest if it's just a dribble I use these, again been well used on an appliance and hold u[p well to abuse - RUSHPTWI | Bolle RUSH+ Safety Glasses Anti-Mist, Twilight | Bolle -

I've seen these in use but haven't tried them yet, I had the lidl version and they were comfy, but didn't last a 6 year old's use - https://www.eyekit.co/glasses/indust...men-women.html

However if it's raining that bad it's the Gath with full face visor, none of this Gecko stuff ( that people can't spell.......)

I use these..

UCI Kara Sealed Safety Goggle With Shield Set - Clear Lens - Eye Protection | eBay

I also have a couple of Bolle ones but the cheaper ones are better.
The seal is moulded and doesn't come unstuck like the Bolle ones
