glasses and full face helmets

Ok so how does everyone wear glasses (securely) with the full face?

I have heard of threading the crookies through first, then attaching to the glasses and then put them on.... and this seems like possibly the best way.

any other ideas out there?

RainX your glasses when you do figure it out. It helps the water droplets from drying and leaving those aggravating calcium dep. on them, and clears water from your lenses without having to "wipe".

Contacts are the best way if you can get them. I had to paddle for three months without my contacts and it was terrible....tried everything. Eventually I just started wearing my glasses without a strap and threw a spare pair in my PFD in case they came off, but they never came off.

I'm using RecSpecs Maxx30s with Chums under a ShreadReady full face. Kind of hard to get the helmet on but once it's on it is a pretty comfortable setup. +1 on the RainX. Seems to work the best for anti-fogging (have tried most of the other products). I thought about going the contact route but I took a willow branch to the eye last season, which changed my mind.
