I first wore Kroops goggles in 1978 while with the University of South Carolina Sport Parachute Club…we jumped in Lugoff SC…about 45 min south of your Monroe, NC facility. I wore the Original goggles but put a little tape over vents to allow for contact lens wear (see photo)…great products! New Sunglasses are terrific…my best to y’all!!
My sensitive eyes tear up way too much in cold New York City weather. I don't ride a horse here, but like Butch Cassidy, I substitute it with a metal horse of two wheels. These goggles have been a revelation for me. Not only do they protect my eyes well, they also do not obstruct my peripheral vision, which is so crucial for riding these dangerous streets. The best part is, I wear them day and night. Oh, actually, the best part is that they look stylish and get attention! No, no... the best part is how they don't put a hole in your pocket.
These Original Racing goggles are very comfortable over my eyeglasses. The adjustable strap works well and the goggles fit firmly and stay in place keeping my eyes from tearing up. Another important feature is that they work with my bicycle helmet.
I chose the tinted with the narrow strap. I like these. It's hard to see in the photo but I'm wearing my eyeglasses under these goggles.
At the same time I ordered two other versions but they didn't fit as comfortably, however, Kroop's accepted a return and refunded me promptly. Thank you for the good customer service!
