    What do you wear for sunglasses / eye protection when riding?

    I'm looking to pick up a pair of shades strictly for riding and curious what others wear when riding. I'm a big Oakley fan and have a small collection (12pr), and was thinking of some M frames for riding. Figured I would see if there was anything better out there first. I can get new M frames for $63 from Oakley direct.

    Sea Specs. They will not come off. They also float.

    I will say that i rarely wear glasses. I used them this past weekend because of the crazy amount of small flies that were out. We actually had dead flies splattered on our faces.

    Bolle tinted safety glasses, come with a strap and foam where they touch your face to help keep the spray out, and at under $20 cheap enough should you lose them. I lost a pair of JetTribe glasses on first outing so have used these since. Not super cool, but very effective

    Oakley Half Jackets...an old pair. I also keep a pair of regular clear safety glasses for dusk or heavy cloud cover...not a fan of a horsefly in the eye.

    Oakleys for me. They were a gift and doubt that I'd spend the money for a replacement if I lose/break them.

    Main reason I use them, "offers uncompromising protection against high-velocity and high-mass impact"

    Not exactly sure of the model, but they're very similar to this:

    I had a pair of Oakleys that the dealer gave me when I bought my pair of FX HOs. Now, I've never been a fan as I haven't wanted to be associated with the image of overpriced, under performing glasses. I was shocked to find that they are, indeed, some really good glasses! I wore OTG goggles over them and rode to Bimini thusly outfitted. Alas, when caught in the storm in Bimini I flipped the ski and my impact with the water pulled off the goggles and the glasses were lost in the depth.

    Then I wore the OTG goggles over a pair of Maui Jims and pretty much the same thing happened, only this time in Mississippi.

    So then I invested in a pair of JTA 071301 CLASSIC GOGGLES RED FRAME/ SMOKE LENS



    The only two problems I have with them are that they fit exactly on my eye sockets, and that feeling is kinda disconcerting. I had to get used to it. Other than that, the lenses just aren't as good as a good pair of sunglasses.

    But by now I had made the decision that I would not lose another pair of $$$ sunglasses while out riding. So when Woot! ran a sale on Stingreys for $10.99



    I bought 3 pair. I was pleasantly surprised to find that they kept the wind out of my eyes at higher speeds than the expensive glasses! I still can't go flat out without getting air in my eyes and tearing up, but they seem to work better for me than what I previously wore. And cheap, too!

    I'll probably be switching between the glasses and the Jet Tribe goggles throughout MudBug depending on speed.
