I ride in now with sunglasses on because on my commute I have about a 1/2 mile straight down a hill going about 30mph (yes, I do pass cars occasionally) and I need sunglasses. However, pretty soon out here in the great Northwest it will be dark until 8.30 am and I won't want to have my sightlines diminished even more. Last year, I commuted in using some very cheap blue tinted construction sunglasses I picked up from Home Depot. Those, being quite cheap, were destroyed. The ones I use now are very cheap sunglasses (brown tinted) that I picked up from Fred Meyer.
I was wondering if anyone else had better experience with a different set of glasses that were not necessarily dark tinted? Any suggestions other getting another pair of those blue tinted glasses?
1. I'm cheap, as you probably guessed above
2. I don't particularly care about style, as you probably guessed from my Home Depot shades purchases.
3. It is going to start raining out here soon so I have to have glasses.
4. I have pretty good eyesight, so no need for prescription/contacts.
