Sunnies - any recommendations?

I'm looking to buy some sunglasses to wear under my crash helmet. :sunglasses:  Does anyone have any recommendations on make/best place to buy?

Cheers

Why do you want sunnies?

I like to ride with my visor up sometimes

(I find having it down all the time a bit claustrophobic).  However getting a fly in your eye, even when going at low speed, is never a good thing! :blink:  So that's why really.

glasses

You haven`t answered my question:shock:. Why sunnies and not eye protectors.Seriously though i do not reccomend sunglasses or tinted visors because they affect your field/distance of vision which i experienced years ago.I suggest you use clear glasses but flies will feel like bricks on your face.

Oakleys

I have a set of oakleys flax jacket XL not cheap they are about £180 a set (with the iridium lenses). Lenses are interchangeable easily with different colours. Iridium is really good as you can wear them in to dusk with out it affecting too much. They are strong lightweight and very very comfy. lenses are about £90 a set for iridium and about half that for others if memory serves me correct.


The lenses are pretty scratch proof I have had mine about 2 years now, the only scratch on one set of lenses is cause I fell off a barge boat and trying to get balance i ended up chucking glass's on the floor.

tool station

check out tool station. They have the iridium scratch proof wrap arounds for about £15. Likely not the same quality of oakleys but you could get multiple pairs for the same price.
