Spotters-if you haven't tried a pair you should. These are the ultimate driving glasses. Their web site is at : http://www.spotters-shades.com/

And no, I don't work for them. I just love the pair that I got with prescription lenses in them. Also the accountant said I can deduct them.

I just wear Uvex Tomcats, actually bought them for work, the plastic frames would break when I was working in the winter time, and the tomcats were metal frame, cost between 5-7 dollars.
I would say there are better out there then what I wear, but I like wearing safetyglasses, my eyes are important to me, and my mom would be pissed if I ruined anything like that, that she gave me. :wink:

Do not know about spotters but I fish mountain streams and the light can get blinding. So I went to a mall with a fountain and pool in direct sunlight and had the salemen come with me while I tried on a number of different glasses.
The Maui Jim lenses beat everything including Oakleys which I wanted to buy for the style of the frames.
Nothing comes close.
The choice of lenses are phenomenal and you choose exactly the UV protection you want and the colour you want to increase acuity.
For Sea water the deep black blue lenses.
For stream fishing and for increasing contrast the bronze lenses are just magic. It cuts out reflection as if there was none.
What I loved about the oakleys were the changeable lenses with the ability to add yellow lenses for competitive sportmen.
Doctors recommend the Maui Jim's for cataracts because they cut out sun damage better than any other lenses.
But they are heavy.

OH MY :shock: I just saw the price for those, well the frame style that would fit me. I would defiantly have to try a pair on before I ever bought a pair of those

All I know is expensive sunglasses would be wasted on me. Apparently my head is on the deformed side compared to most folk, one ear is a bit higher than the other (not that you can tell just from looking at me!), so any sunglasses I wear inevitably end up bent out of shape after a few weeks.

I use ray bans myself and have 2 pair. I have oakleys at home for when I drive my BMW sportster around.

Gotta love being single and no kids.
