Word of advice. There are reasons the good brands are fairly expensive. The lenses are better quality and they offer more protection from the sun, so don't skimp on price or you'll have glasses/goggles and still have red eyes, because the glare off the water is very harsh. Cheap dark lenses only hide the damage you are doing to your eyes.

The best feature of the Oakley Water Jacket is the G-30 lens. It increases contrast, which helps you see through the water spots on the lens. The anti water spot coating only works when freshly applied.
You can buy other Oakley glasses with the G-30 lens for half the cost. It's just another option. My wife did that because the water jacket was too big for her face.

I've had bad luck with Barz. They scratch easy and they fog even easier. Very annoying. The will change the lenses though for $50.
I've been hearing good things about Shields.
Has anyone seen them in action?
