Elastic-strap goggle-type is best for running hard.
I frequently have to turn, to speak to passengers in the aft seat. For example: - "don't try to pick that up right now, you IDIOT" . . . the wind will whip your $245.00 Maui Jims off your face quicker'n sh"t, when you turn your head.
Guard-Dogs are the best for the hard-running. At idle, you can put on your $245.00 Maui Jims, and look fabulous as you approach the docks.
Keep a couple pair of WallySpecials for your passengers.

Even the most seasoned skipper WILL scuttle his specs at some point. Have some backups.
SPY ( less than $100 ) is a good choice for those who don't want to go the 'goggle' route, yet still have good aero's for hard-running, while still looking fabulous at the docks.
Interchangeable lenses is a SPY plus. . . .

You may be right, but they do fit very snug. The rubber ends on the strap that goes around your head keep them tight behind your ears, and you just sinch up the rubber piece behind your head for running fast. Mine have never moved on the boat or motorcycle.

Those are what I wear. I love them. I even got ride of the strap, but left the little rubber peice on. They have never moved at all wheather on the boat or the Harley.

I use Guard Dogs too. Not the one's in the thread above. I get the Pure Bred Combo. Clear lense for night and smoke for day. When I am not running I just put on my regular sunglasses.
