Suffering from red-eye from glancing into the sun every now and again after a top session over the weekend. Can anybody recommend any suitabele shades or goggles I can wear with my Gath helmet ?

I recommend the googles from Barz, but don't know if they will fit with your helmet:

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.

You pay for what you get. remember that.

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.

Mini-truckers with mullet hairdoos wear Oakley, reason enough not to buy them.

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?
