Sunglasses

Lost my TAG Heuers recently and maybe looking at Serengeti as replacement but so far they're impossible to find at reasonable price here. What sunglasses do you wear when riding, and maybe a different pair for driving?

Why--style or substance?

Cool

Oakley Monster Dog. Perfect under a Corsair. Great vision 'cause you don't see the edges as with many other models.

Is it one of these ones here? Personally, I've never been drawn to the mean look of Oakleys (haven't got the muscle to match!), but not seeing the edges is a great feature. Lens sounds tough but how's the optics--decent enough? I'll make sure to look for them in the shop.

I wear Rudy Project "Ekynox SX Graphite Multilaser Red". Phantastic Performance Sunglases with exchangeble Lenses, Made in Italy. Lately I added the "Impact X Photochromatic Clear" which aren't only indestructible but cover from Rainy Days to Sunshine. Plus they are in MV Agusta Grigio - Rosso.

Yep, that's the one. What I also like is the fact that they stay put on your face in the same place, unlike some other glasses I've used.

I have prescription lenses (-0.75, -1.00) and having to peek through glasses that show you the edges while slowly moving down your nose is not something you really need on the average trackday...

I find the quality of the lenses very good, though not as good as Ray-Ban.

what are people's opinions of polarized? I have some oakley something or another, and they are nice, but they add a bit of 'fuzz' on things, sometimes on the road, etc. If you've worn polarized before, you know what I'm talking about. This is the first polarized pair i wear on the bike.... so bit irritating at times....
