I tried out Spex as they are truly goggles http://a.co/jjHfzhE they aren't terrible but where I live with the water / air temp differential I still have fogging issues.

The make you look like a super dork too.

Yes, after trying so many different kinds of eye protection including various types of goggles I decided on the Lips https://www.lip-sunglasses.com/ ... specifically the Surge model since they are a bit cheaper and are extremely comfortable. They are more expensive but they have not come off yet and I have had some mean crashes. The only way not to lose glasses when you have decent spills is to have a neck wrap which Lip and Kurtis both have. If you are just a cruiser and not really worried too much about crashing then the goggles that people have recommended should work fine. Dont use RainEx on lenses. I recall someone posting on here before a better alternative which I can't recall off hand but there are much better water repellents out there.

I use SeaSpecs and no fog treatment bought in a scuba diving shop for dive or snorkel masks.

For me C-line; I need a little sense of aesthetics... for utilitarians SeaSpecs are probably unbeatable, but I was traumatized by them, my self-image has seldom suffered greater defeat

I've been using Wiley-X for about ten years. My first ones were goggles that had detachable earpieces you could switch for a strap. My newer ones are sunglasses with removable gaskets. The strap has a neat system and I always get polarized.
