I have a great pair of goggles (Oakley Wisdoms) but sometimes googles are just overkill for the conditions and a full day of boardin. thats why i often wear sunglasses but can they offer the same comfort and visibility?
I bought the Oakley Oil Rigs
They are light, comfortable, offer excellent protection, and dont fog up at all which is a HUGE plus for sunglasses. I recommend giving them a try if you are tired of wearing heavier googles all the time and having "racoon eyes" at the end of the day.
ha, i can definitely appreciate that. But these days, as a single guy with a good job i have plenty of money to spend and if i cant bring it with me when i die i figure ill use it to get me the things i want and like now
ive dropped mine a couple times...well with my head still in them as i bit it pretty hard trying to ride this damn log. mine still look as nice as they did when i got them last spring so i have no complaints.
and they MSRP around 125, retail about 110, but if you look around you can get them for about 70 which is what i paid for them.
Im gunna ask this here to avoid making a mew thread: can wearing sunglasses really replace goggles on nice days? The only reason i wear goggles is to block the wind from hitting my eyes and making me squint/tear up. Wont the wind just get through the sides of the sunglasses?
