Default Great boarding sunglasses (Oakley Oil Rig)

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.

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?
