    Why not go spendy and get a pair of Oakley Fast Jacket with XL lenses? Or go cheap at a local sporting goods store that has glasses with large curved lenses?

    Or you could do the dollar general and get the classes that have the full shield all the way to your ear and they cost like 10 bucks. You could be rocking it out like the Eagles.

    Thanks for the replies. I haven't found what I'm looking for yet, but did find clear versions of what I'm looking for. I guess a little black spray paint and I'm in business.

    Can you share what you found and where you found them
    It's probably better than my duct tape creations

    I have used duct tape to fashion a custom solar guard for my nose when I didn't have any sunscreen handy. It taped onto the bridge of my sunglasses, and the nose pads resting over it helped keep it in place. I think it had an UPF factor of 100.
    I was going to make another one to wear with my Cocoons. But I might try a buff instead. The old schnozz seems to attract more than its share of solar radiation.
