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....

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

Oakley Jet Black Proven H2O Goggles

Used them 3 months (Greece, Croatia). In choppy water I was wet and goggles also.
But never used them during rain - not faced any. Comfortable, never had problem.

But in UK I will prefer (if be on the RIB) helmet with full face.
Had problem in really bad condition to wipe them from the salt which be probably easier with full visor.

Storing the helmet when not wearing it is the issue if you (I don't) have a locker big enough goggles fit in your pocket a helmet doesn't so that's the reason for not going straight to helmets easy to carry 3/4 pairs of goggles not so 3/4 helmets on board.

I only have a 3.9 m boat (albeit with good storage for its size) and can carry 4 gecko's. Your thread title is wrong - it should be "storage for geckos" as they* are the solution - they look a bit stupid (like you think you are in the rnli) but so will MX goggles on a boat!

I wore a borrowed gecko once in light rain to change my view on them, and Mrs P thought I was bonkers when I bought 4, but immediately changed her mind the first day out in spray.

*i use the term generically like Hoover and have nothing against Gath etc as alternative.
