I also found products by Blueeye eyewear, which have some nice features like quality replaceable lenses, big anti-fog holes and they float.

Check them out at http://www.blueye.com.au

Just trying to find out the cost and availability in the UK at the moment.

Air Monkey - Did you find out any more details on the Blueye GreenRoom's? They work out at about £50 inc carriage if you order direct.

I tried on some Oakley Water Jackets but they flet really uncomfortable under my Gath.

I tried the dirty dog water goggles, but the foam falls off after a few sessions, they fog badly, and the tint is too dark to see detail in the water. I bought some stuff to stop them fogging, which seemed to work if applied each time. They do save your eyes from windburn and sun damage. I found they fog more in sub 20 degree days, but 25-28 degree days in Rarotonga were sweet!

I have not been at all impressed with my Shields! dThey seemed great at first, driving down the road, nice big and dark. But after a short while the rubber nosepiece rotted and broke. They scratch quite easy. And they ride VERY close to your face so they ALWAYS fog up on me. Ive tried the stick of nofog goop they give you..crap. Ive tried RainX and it went on nice and slick but they still fogged on me. Ive had more luck using standard drops for diving/snorkeling masks to keep from getting fogged out. I think the main problem is they ride up high on the forehead and TOOOO close to the face. my next modification will be to superglue some rubber "spacers" on the top edge of the lens so i get more airflow.

i mean hey, i paid 60 bucks for those fuckers im going to MAKE them work;)

(sorrry, i get frustrated when i cant SEE!)

Just to let the UK contingent know you can buy the bueeye eyewear in the UK at £60 a pair - so you may be better off ordering a pair direct to save a tenner.

Contact the distributors for the UK to find out if there's a shop that stock them near you - The KiteSurf Company Tel: +44 (0)870 8700150
