I have never actually worn them for biking, but I wont ski without them. I think that they would be a great edition, but a nice pair of glasses might get the job done also.

ya, i wear em for the same reason snowboarding....my eyes water up in the wind and make seeing details in the trail difficult...so if i plan on going fast, or down long fast trails then yes...if im out dj'ing or freeriding that requires short runs...no

How about just sunglasses? I wear prescriptioned sunglasses all the time when I ride XC/Freeride and they work pretty well. I don't wear contacts so unless I'm going to wear glasses under my goggles, I think I'm stuck!

No, no, no, NO! Sunglasses with fullface helmet is one of the ugliest things to see in life.

I usually prefer comfort and ease over style, but sunglasses and fullface helmet are so ugly together, that I would never wear them at the same time.

It's like a normal FF helmet and a MET parachute, even if the met would be as protective as a troy lee, I would go for style over weight and comfort (in hot conditions).
