Same here, in the past it's seemed a bit of overkill for pottering down to Maenporth beach for a spot of swimming and sunbathing.
However I do fancy one mainly to keep the rain/spray off my glasses which can effectively half-blind me.

Want to vote twice

Voted "Too expensive" but want to vote "don't really see the need" as well.

For the amount of use it would get I think that it would be poor value for me. Can normally make do with good sunglasses or ski goggles - which i already have.
