This is my second post, so I guess I have more than one favourite item.

Best: Bolle sunglasses, interchangeable lenses, good for different sports, like skiing as well, and the prescription inserts so I don't have to carry two pairs and easier to change when the prescription changes.

Don't have a second worst - most things are working out pretty well.

Hey, check out Performance Bicycle for your Bolle glasses. They've got em and the inserts, plus they'll fill your perscription for another $50. I don't know how the prices are but Performance is usually pretty good.

Hi guys,

I actually got my Bole's from a local optician. They happened to have a pair that had a slight scratch on one of he lenses that didn't affect the performance but reduced the price significantly.

A consideration in Canada is between the price of our dollar, shipping, duties etc. the price of an article has to be VERY inexpensive in the States to make it worthwile ordering from there.

If you order your prescription inserts, make sure you include the pupil to pupil distance along with the rest of your prescription, apparently it isn't always given. I've seen Bolle's in either Nashbar's and/or Colorado Cylclist's catalogues, as well as other brands.
