I would say Oakleys if you can afford them exellent quality good fit great lenes and as mentioned warrenty second to none. on a budget bolle are good really clear and robust a bit like cheaper oakleys one thing i will not be doing again is buying cheap glasses because of the disortion in the lens feel like your drunk.
Maybe you were ?
I do like my new Oakley Radars - but maybe a wee bit OTT for street wear.
Lost a bloody expensive pair of Arnette sunglasses climbing a couple of Munros yesterday. GUTTED!
Need to buy a pairvof Oakleys then to cheer me up!

As I wear prescription lenses I always run in sunglasses ( unless its dark ) Does anyone know of a manufacturer who makes "sports" type prescription sunglasses ?
Try RUDYPROJECT - most of their frames allow a special prescription bar to be clipped in (with small lenses attached) behind the sunglasses lens
it gives the full sunglasses look (think oakley) without the need to get a new pair of sunglasses should your prescription change.
Quite impressed by the newly released Adidas Adizero sunglasses. Specifically designed for running, is lightweight and prescription compatible. Available in 2 sizes.
I use the Crane Sports Sunglasses !
Only about £4 and do teh job and have never let me down !!
Forget interchangeable lenses and get Specialized Adaptalite cycling sunglasses, which adjust to level of UV - great to wear in strong sun and in shade...they just get lighter or darker in response to light. Very light, hardly feel them, great for both cycling and running. Expensive (+£70) but worth every penny...
This is part of advertising blurb from some website:
"Adaptalite lenses automatically adapt to varying UV levels changing from light to dark tint in less than 15 seconds. - Aerodynamically engineered frames and lenses have been designed for optimized air flow to prevent fogging while still ensuring full wind protection. - Full- time 100 percent UVA and UVB protection while still providing exceptional optical clarity. - Lenses made from a material called NXT which is a revolutionary unbreakable optical polymer that is 10-20 percent lighter than other sports lenses."

Try oakley M Frames,its the ones the pro's wear.Not cheap but no slippage and perfect fit.Never had any problem with them and they are 3 years old now.
I've got 3 pairs of Mumbos, which are essentially the same as 'M-Frames', but their predecessors
They're probably at least 15 years old now, & have only had a new pair of sleeves on the arms, & a new nose-piece (on one pair), as the rubber went 'critical' (it was like chewing gum - think it's hydrophilic?)
I wear mine for general riding, & racing Cyclo-Cross, as I wear contact lenses - so getting grit in the eyes on a 40MPH descent isn't a good idea. (that pair always has the - deeper profile - 'yellow' lens in)
I have worn the 'Iridium Blue' lenes for summer runs though, & they don't move on your nose at all
Bolle Contour ESP £7.65.
Light, 21g, 180deg vision, 100% UVA/UVB protection.
Great for running and also cycling as they have safety lenses
Also use ESS ICE 2.4 Military ballistic glasses, 30g weight,3 interchangeable lenses, about £35. Will withstand a shotgun blast so offer great protection against flying stone chips when cycling but prefer the Bolle Contours for running as so light and great for all light conditions
I got the Dirty Dog Curl for cycling as large wraparounds with vents to reduce misting
So whats the difference in me posting links to glasses I have bought and you posting links to sunwise or rapideyewear
John get a life!
This forum is about gear and I have made 3 suggestions on gear, 2 from personal experience and one from research I had been doing myself on watches to replace my ageing watch.
I bought prescription shades from Glassesonpsec, I bought a Garmin from Handtec and the third was in response to a thread where I was looking for a new watch as well. I wish I did have a business empire spanning Peterborough, Bradford and Watford but I don't.
On the other hand you have no profile and in your first and only post other than to attack me you promote your company and do not identify that you have an interest in that company until challenged by me.
