Goggles or Glasses Recommendations

Postby kitekid21 » Sat Apr 28, 2012 10:31 pm

For Glasses or contacts wearers out there, do you have any recommendations as to non-prescription goggles/glasses that are great for kiting? I'd prefer just to wear my contacts, but experience from wakeboarding has proven that it's a bad idea with contacts in with no impact protection. I can see with the contacts out, but I'd like to see everything as crisply as possible, if possible.

Much thanks and may the winds always blow in your favor! :D

Those look fine. I use Home Depot Saftey Glasses... they are Blade Style.... I cut off the arms so they are straight ----- and then attach surgical tubing to hold them on. It's fun to laugh when $6 glasses get washed away....vs. $100 ones.
