Some people wear many different things...

Some wear those nylon things...

Some wear sun glasses and some don't...

I found these on the EBay , they look nice!

I usually don't wear anything... I use to wear glasses and wear those but I got lasik and don't have to do that anymore. Can't decide if like having glasses on or with out, better...

Sometimes I wear glasses, but the arms pressed against my head for a long period of time can be painful. I like it because I can flip up the visor and still have eye protection.

sometimes a "dew rag" if it is going to be really hot, and usually sunglasses, unless I wear the helmet with the mirrored visor.

Balaclava in the cold. Whenever i wear a clear shield, i bring my safety glasses. Sounds dorky but they are OSHA approved, dark, thin, flexible, and not at all as ugly as you would think. Plus ive seen them save eyes from things far worse than bugs and sometimes i do ride with the visor open.

A coworker was pulling a pole from the ground with a forklift, strap and shakle. Strap slipped off the pole and shot the shackle (about 3 pounds) right at his eye. Hit his glasses busted up his face and knocked him out. But where his glasses were there was ZERO damage. Saved his eye. Glasses werent even scratched. Sold me right then and there.

I have tried to wear sun glasses under the helmet, but the wind pushes the sun glasses right on my sinuses and gives a killer head ache. I just keep my lightly tinted visor on, I can see great day and night.

I have a tinted visor for the day and (if I think I'll be out after dark) I carry my clear visor in a Shield-Sak. Works great and you don't even feel the extra shield.

Well, I don't have a choice as I wear glasses. So I'll have to find a lid that'll fit them and still be comfortable. I'm thinkin' about contacts, but I'm just too lazy to clean them and the doctor where I was gonna get them was like severely anal as to how I put them in. So I'll see, gonna try contacts again from someplace else cause I think it'll be easier when I ride, plus I can wear sun glasses and all.

I'd wear a bandana to soak up sweat, but I have a 7 7/8" head and there are no bandanas that fit me so I gotta custom make one if I want one.

Nothing typically.

If I leave in the evening and I won't be back past dark, though, I'll wear sunglasses so I don't have to bring the other shield.
