Get Yourself Some Cheap Sunglasses - ZZ Top

B.A.S.S Black frame wrap around.... Polarized
I get them when they go on sale at a local sports store..... about 12-14 bucks.
I get a new pair each spring to start off the season, they can take the abuse, and end up in the glove box in the late fall as a back-up.
Last time I bought a "Spendy" pair of shades, they ended up in 2 pieces after being sat on at a party, $89.- gone with the wind, phftt!

If you gotta fu...dge with your specs. or constantly worry about pinnin them back...
Thats less time fishin, and spendy ones scratch just like cheap ones....

I bought a pair of Bolle' amber poly carb lens prescripion glasses about six years ago. My rx hasn't changed much over that period and I've found them to be a very durable pair of glasses. They are a kind of horn rimmed style with amber side shields. I haven't babied them and they have held up extremely well. No serious scratches even though they've taken a pretty good beating over the years. No cracked frame nor lense pooping out problems. I like the amber for the all around versitility they provide. Excellent vision in low light, dawn and dusk. I only need to take them off when it is actually dark when I remember I have them on.

If they break or my rx changes enough I'll replace them with a more wrapped style but for standing up to the punishment I've laid on them I'll probably stay with the Bolle's.
