Thumbs up Oakleys work well

I've been wearing Oakleys for a while and they work well in the wind - Just my .02 worth - BH

Cool

I bought a pair of Native sunglasses (Nativeeyewerar.com) I have the ryde model and they block the wind much much better than my Oakleys. I also bought some guard dog goggles and they also work great.

The original Gargoyles (like Earnhart Sr. wore) are the best I have ever used. I have Oakleys now and they are OK-ish, but still get too much wind around the corners.

I have some goggles that are a cross between real goggles and wraparound glasses that work well. They really don't work any better than the old standard style Gargoyle lunar greys...

I still have a battered old pair but they finally broke across the nose piece. I guess I should send them back to the factory (heard they will replace them for 1/2 price).

REVO Extreme wraps give great wind protection with a lens thats hard to beat.
