Sunglasses / goggles

Hey guys Im doing a 2 day class this weekend. I've stocked up on some gear like a fully submersible bag, hat, dry fit cloths, phone water case etc, but I feel like I'm missing a good pair of floating/strapped sunglasses.

Anyone where goggles?

I've only seen one or 2 pairs of strapped watersport sunglasses on Amazon and need your feedback. Sea specs seem to be nice, but got some back reviews. Please help

Next year I'm going to wear my scuba mask during the Rapids on cataract. I was getting hit so hard this spring that I couldn't see anything for periods as long as 15 seconds. Plus I'll look so dorky rowing with a scuba mask. You gotta look good !

Smith's Guide sunglasses have an integrated retention strap. There is also a sunglasses brand that makes sunglasses for surfers that has an integrated strap.

Polarized work best for the river.

That being said, any sunglasses you have paired with Croakies should keep your eyes safe.

Those should be okay, but I do think a pair of goggles like the Minions ware would be pretty sweet!

This is what I do too, but lately I haven't even been using the croakies. Last 3 flips my $11 "pugs" stayed on my noggin.

I tried goggles my first season. They fog and become worthless.
