Harley Davidson tinted safety glasses, they don't scratch easily, they have a nice polarized tint, you look at them and would never guess they were safety glasses, I have a pair of oakleys for regular driving though, little expensive for farm use

Ryders for a cheaper end but oakleys are still the best all around brand I have found

I tired polarized once in a pair of replacable lense oakleys but found that it showed lines and spots in some vehicles but worse was in my JD sprayer since I'm a custom guy and spend alot of time in there it wasn't a good thing for me.

Prescription Maui Jims. Fantastic glasses, but very expensive. I'm lucky though, my sister is an optometrist and I get a cheaper deal.

Always been an Oakley fan had several pairs, polarized are awesome but sure hurt when you lose them. Just recently I tried out a pair of Fox racing sunglasses and they are equal or better than Oakley IMO. For work a pair of Harley Davidson safety glasses or any tinted safety glass really, I do find that any tinted safety glass becomes pitted and wrecks the finish if you use them for grinding or cutting torch.

Best glasses I've owned to date are Gatorz. They are machined from one piece billet aluminum and tough as nails. I've used them grinding and it didn't pit the lenses, excellent quality. Same glasses as Paul Jr wears on the old Orange County Choppers.
