I had problems with wind in my eyes in my Checkmate...It's a 253 and the windshield wouldn't keep wind from going straight into my eyes...would plum blow off most glasses I tried

I went with Panoptix, you can find them thru a google search, just another alternative..............

Wear them in the car (t tops) boat, mowing grass, so much during the summer that I get tan lines from them!!

Keep the wind out good.

I got a pair of Spy's this past summer. They offer great wind protection. The only problem with the pai i have now is that I look like a bug with them on.

I have three pair of Maui Jims and they are all polorized and by far the best glasses i have ever owned. I have had the ones that are similar to the ray bans above (maui Jim Sports i believe) I have had them on at 152 on water (40 Skater Out of Control) and 177 on land (honda CBR) and no tears from these eyes. I also have the titanium sports and the regualr titanium's they do not work well in the wind for my face. other glasses that work well for me are the oroginal oakleys (squared off bottom edge) and the ray ban aviators. I think the only safe way is trial and error since everybodies check bone a facial structiure will have the glasses resting differently. The goggle style glasses would be a safe bet since they actually fit snuggly on the botom side 9this is where i notice the most air coming in on improper specs.

A friend has serengetti polarized pers. glasses and they seem to do well.

ok -- just thought i'd update ya'll

Got the Guard Dogs and they work pretty well -- although they feel cheap (they were about 80 bucks) they block the wind well and look OK.

I also have some Maui Jim Titanium sports -- block the wind very well and are very nice sun glasses.

Spy Sunglasses.
Windows for your head! Check out the Microscoops they have a biult up cheek bone and eyebrow so the wind stays out. The sides are vented so they dont fog. They are priced around $75 so there not completely obnoxous. Keeps my contacts in my eye's not a dryed peace of seliphane (sp) stuck on the side of my cheek.
