    I have a dumb question... My adventurous life has caused me to break my nose more than once, resulting in a bit of deviation. And because of it, speeds above 30mph cause air to leak through the glasses' nosepiece and cause one eye to water up...not good.

    Just wondering if anyone else whos had a faceplant or 2 might have a solution for this.

    Thanks!

    Yup. My nose is pushed off to one side. Get glasses with bendable nose pieces and lenses with large coverage. It's the best you can do. I don't have the eye watering issue.

    Consider wearing goggles to minimize the wind in your eye(s).

    There are loads. I like Rudy Project stuff. I'm sure others will chime in with their favorites.

    +1 for Rudys but they are pricey.

    All bike stuff is expensive in the Antipodes! You and New Zealand need to get together to start a war against insane pricing. You guys are getting the stinky end of the stick.

    Rudy's do last, though. I've had my Kerosene's for 5+ years.
