    Dual Sunglasses

    So I'm nearsighted? Farsighted? I don't know. What I do know is that I need reading glasses. When riding, that's not a big deal, any sunglasses work. Well, unless you want to read the small print on the computer. Then...not so much.

    I just bought a pair of Dual Eyewear SL2 Pro sunglasses. I just got back from my first ride with these and all I can say is I wish I had bought them years ago. They work GREAT. I can clearly read my computer. They wrap around very well. Good wind protection. I did fog them up, but it was a chilly morning and I was sweating pretty good. I've fogged up every pair of sunglasses that I've ever owned under those conditions, so I can't complain. The transition from normal to +1.5 for me is VERY subtle, far more subtle than my regular bi-focal glasses. I realized I didn't even see the transition between the two zones.

    @TrojanHorse - BUY THESE!!!! Unless you ended up finding the little stick on lenses that you lost.
    If at first you don't succeed, Skydiving is not the sport for you!

    I found my stick-ons but havne't stuck them on yet...

    For fogging... the oakley race jackets I have (the formerly named jawbones) are great for not fogging because they're ventilated.

    I'll probably get a set of those duals anyway because I like sunglasses.

    I use the Duals and love them. I've added a ridiculous number of data fields to my Garmin now that I can see

    There used to be some stuff that I would put on my glasses that would keep them from fogging. Worked great when I used it. Used it a lot for paint ball goggles also. Winter play would have them fogged up bad without that stuff.

    Then I got better glasses. I also haven't played paint ball in years so I don't know what is out there now. You may be able to find something if you search for it. Maybe some at your local optometrist or they may have an idea of what you can use.

    I use the Dual's as well. In fact, like them so well I find them replacing my Oakley's off the bike.

    There is anti-fog that is used for scuba diving and is found in dive shops.
    I don't do vintage, I bought them new, rode them, kept them. Now they are just old bikes

    Thanks for the tips. I'll look into that.
