So I've worn glasses for ever and always fought them in the cold. This fall I was having all kinds of issues and could either get frost bite and ride with my goggles down or have my goggles up and my face warm and not be able to see/ keep up. There were several times my goggles were about to fly across the Kuskokwim I was so frustrated.
While I was out of the bush at xmass I got some contacts. Holly Cow are they are a nice "upgrade". No longer am I dealing with fogged up glasses and not being axle to. It's nice to be able to have my goggles down as soon as I hit the river and keep them down till we stop. It's also nice for working in below 0 temps, no more frozen up glasses while working on the fish trap.
