Default What Sun Glasses for Wind Protection? HELP

I bought Arnette, Rage model. JUNK. My eyes water at 40Mph. What are you guys wearing? What protects against wind? My boat doesn't have much wind protection, and I like it that way. Need something else ASAP!

Thx.

I've had three pair of these and always had good luck with them and they are polarized.

I just bought a pair of goggles from Bass Pro Shops called MAD DOG. They are made for atv riding but worked great in the boat lightweight and tinted. Used then for the first time at Smith Mountain Lake run this weekend and loved them better then any sunglasses I've used. Dean

I have oakley gascan's and they work well on protecting eyes from wind (as I wear contacts, dont need those flying out)

i vote for oakley juliets, they will also not fly off your head at 100 if you happen to turn your head. main reason i bought them. they do not help with eyes watering much past 75, but with small windscreens they were great for me.
