skydiving goggles have a clear lens and dont fly off at speed. i also have a gecko helmet and being out yesterday I'm glad I had it.

I presume you are trying to find something which stops rain tearing out your eyeballs??

If you mean goggles as in a mask without the nose piece, then Splash in Newquay sell a brand which is pretty good. Supposed to be useful for water skiing etc. Tel. 01637 873182.

When you take them off, take care not to remove your eyeballs at the same time - the suction is that powerful!

Have you tried speedway goggles? The face shield works well too-stops you getting a mouthful

Thanks for the replies.

I am thinking along the lines of Wiley-X types. I mean, a cross between sunglasses and goggles.

Jobe Jet Ski Goggles

I've got a pair of Jobe goggles, which we mostly use for the person (Victim) :O) being towed on the inflatables. They have both a slightly darkened tint and also a yellow colouring which gives good protection in bright sunlight and also works really well providing greater contrast on grey days. I'm dependant on my specs nowadays & they work pretty much the same as the driving specs I have when I'm on the road.

....They didnt break the bank either @ 15.00 from Fosse Hill Jet Ski Centre

Check out Aquasphere our chums on the PWCs, Canoes etc all seem to like them

Aquasphere

Probably very good for contact lens wearers.

Have the Aqua Sphere Seal mask onboard and have found it great.
Compact/low volume/good quality and various sizes to get a good fit.
Use for tubing etc as well as it seals good enough for underwater swimming.
cheers Dal

Oakley Water Jackets

i've just bought some oakley water jackets, they cover your eyes complety and come with a solution which stops the salt water sticking to them!.
Not the cheapest, but they look cool and they work.
