I saw another rider on a commute recently who was donning (sp?) a pair of safety glasses while riding. Really, if I didn't have woodshop experience and know what styles safety glasses could come in, I wouldn't have known... they look like sunglasses, nearly.
From what I figure, the benefits are pretty good:
•ANSI safe (shouldn't your glasses protect you from crap flying into your eye anyway?)
•the "UV protection" coating is actually monitored by safety councils, so it's guaranteed as opposed to just an un-reliable sticker incentive
•comes in dark shades, yellows or oranges (two colours which increase contrast and can help bring out road conditions.... in addition to brightening your day ;-) )
•they're still safety glasses, NOT designed by a cycling company
Just wondering if anyone else here has used safety glasses for riding or can offer some insight...?
Here's the pair the person was wearing...

the company x-factor makes other pairs of safety glasses that look "sporty"... froogle "safety glasses x factor"
