Bought mine to keep the rain and spray out.

Best bit of kit I ever got.

As a permanant glasses wearer there is nothing worse on a sunny day than getting spray and salt all over your glasses and having to stop every few minutes because you can't see where you're going.


Born to stuff!!

Got two to keep rain out of my face i the winter ad when the sea is rough to keep the spray away too also in the summr.

Now I put a spray hood on my boat I do not think that I'll use them as often but one never knows.
