Bomber floating eyewear helps you hold onto your glasses

I've come across some sunglasses which may prevent me from ever losing a pair again.

The Bomber line of sun- and safety-glasses includes models that come with a patented foam lining, which makes the glasses buoyant. The foam also provides a snug fit, helping hold them in place while keeping perspiration (and sunscreen) away from your eyes.

World Champion jet ski racer Tommy "the Bomber" Bonacci designed the floating eyewear when trying to solve the problem of his glasses falling off and sinking. Bonacci discovered the flotation foam also provided that snug fit, which prevents the glasses from blowing off when turning your head on a jet ski, boat, bike or motorcycle. Bonacci soon had people around the world asking him for a pair of these durable and stylish sunglasses.

Lightweight and comfortable, Bomber eyewear is affordable enough to own more than one pair. In fact, I have numerous -- clear safety for the shooting range; floating polarized which I keep in my tacklebox for fishing, and another polarized pair for driving and everyday use.

With prices ranging from $7.95 to $34.95, glasses can be purchased via the Bomber website or at more than 500 dealers nationwide.
