Any type of Oakley's for sure. They last forever and also seam to fit right compared to Wal-mart junk.

Oakley's all the way Have a pair of Gascan's and a pair of Hijinx for work(i like to switch things up or my head gets sore while sitting in the sprayer all day) and i have a pair of Sideways for play. Never go back to any other brand now, definitely worth the extra coin.

I buy tinted safety glasses then I know my eyes are safe around the farm and dont have to look for my safety glases when I need them.

thats the great thing about a bunch of the Oakley lineup is that they are also safety rated, my Oilrigs are Z87.1 rated, but i definitely dont use them as safety glasses, lenses are way too expensive to destroy while grinding.

I didn’t read all the old posts but I wear light tint Maui Jim’s sun up to sun down and work as safety glasses in between. Expensive but money well spent and pretty much impossible to go back to shitty glass which I used to wear, sun peaks or whatever.

Serengetis are thee best!! I like on a cloudy day, they brighten up the sky. Wouldn’t turn down Maui Jim’s either. Just don’t loose or break any of these two.

My next pair are going to be from flyingeyes.com. They arnt polarized so you can still read your phone or iPad. They are certified as safety glasses. William painter has nice glasses with a lifetime warranty on frames.

On a side note why cant a company make good sunglasses for 50 bucks. The markup on eyeglasses is crazy.

I wear knockarounds. $15 will get you polarized glasses. Regularly have sales so can pick them up for $10-12. Regular non polarized are $10. I usually buy 5 or 6 at a time. Have all kinds of styles/color combos. I tend to lose sunglasses or break them or scratch up the lenses so I don't buy expensive glasses.

Leslie Stahl on 60 minutes did a story about the sunglasses monopoly. It's very good. Found a link

Good thing, us Canadians could watch this protected video, invade your country and take over, that was close!
