When the winter winds are gusting verily, my eyes start streaming which makes seeing the heli tricky to say the least. Anyone recommend a decent pair of ski goggles (need to get them in the UK) ????

Hmm
I'd say that since you're not doing any actual skiing/snowboarding (you're not right?) then you don't really need a certain brand.
I think anything would probably do.

If you still want a brand- I use Bollé goggles when I snowboard. Not top of the line and they don't have a built in ipod () but they do the job quite well. (My eyes also tear sometimes).
Is that helpfull?

I don't give a monkeys about the brand. It's just got to keep the wind off my eyes. Oh yes, the other thing is I wear glasses.

Ever tied Fit-Overs? It's a type
of wrap around sunglasses made for those who wear eyeglasses. They come in clear and polarized versions and fit over eyeglasses. They sell here for approx $20 or even less I think?
Got to a shop that specializes in eyewear for the visually impaired - that's where I got mine.

Pretty much all the goggles you get will let you wear glasses.
Just make sure you get adult size.
But then again, you're smart and all you have to do is try some on.
Go to a snowboard or ski shop. Get a pair for $15-$20.

I cant remember the brand i have, but i do alot of snowboarding so i got a $170 pair -- but the thing about that is it has a lifetime lense replacement warranty if the lense should ever scratch or break (The lenses are supposed to be immune to scratches and cracks)

Go to a motorcycle shop and get some glasses that have padding around the edges.

I paid $15 for a set.

There seems to be much choice but with complications - wearing glasses, sometimes with clipon shades and sometimes without depending on light conditions, or rather, lack of Hmmm, this gonna get expensive.

PaulJC - cheers mate, I didn't know there was one so close.
