Best sealed shades?

My eyes are pretty sensitive to the wind at hwy speeds. I see these Panoptx shades in JP that have a seal that eliminates wind to the eyes. Are these any good? I need interchangeable lenses or changing ones as I ride day and night.

consider a full face helmet, very easy on the eyes.

I have a full faced helmet for my Honda. I choose not to wear it on my around town rides on my Harley.

I have a problem when wearing glasses also. I have not found any that I like enough to wear that are sealed. If you find any please post up about them with a link.

Thanks


I'm sick of following my dreams. I'm just going to ask them where they're goin', and hook up with them later!!

I,ve chosen to install a small "WindVest" windshield on my HD. It's smaller and more aesthetically pleasing than the stock HD windshields.(To me anyway.) I can now wear the tiniest shades at highway speeds with no problem.

On another note, I've found that the safety glasses you can get at industrial supply stores that wrap around and come down to your cheek are good. They keep out the wind fabulously. They look like regular wrap arounds and come in clear and dark shades. The great thing about these glasses is that they only cost around $5 bucks. Grab a handfull and if ya break one, so what.

How about some ski goggles? Those would seem to work just fine.

You didn't say that... if you want to look cool - you should just get yourself some Oakleys and deal with the crying game when you pull into the bar. If you want wind protection (as originally asked) then get yo'self some goggles!

With that foam around the perimeter, they don't breath as well as other glasses and fog up a bit sometimes. But they do look cool.
