Nashbar Ares Sunglasses

Well, I asked for some help in the fall about good riding sunglasses, and my daughter bought me a pair of the Ares that come with three different lenses. What a plus for me. I am planning on using them only for bicycling, but I may use them for other things also. I rode with them for the first time the other day, and they really keep the wind out of my eyes, and even on a cloudy day, they will be a plus, as I can put in a lighter lense, and if I ever get into night riding, I can use the clear lense.

This is just a postive thing that I hope will help someone else that wants the eye protection, but doesn't always want dark lenses. They are on sale right now for under $20.00 and I think my family paid almost $40.00 for them. And yes, they do fit on my fat head and adapted well to my daughter's smaller head also.

I have some with multiple lenses and I am going to replace them with the photochromic lenses. I am getting tired of swapping lenses based on the conditions. I borrowed a pair with these lenses from a guy the other day when I forgot mine and the weather went from major overcast to bright sun and it was nice not having to be stuck with the clear lenses after the sun came out.

Just my 2 cents

I don't need really dark glasses for sunlight, but I do want the clear for night riding, as I need something to keep my eyes from drying out when I am riding my bike.
