Best sunglasses for a reasonable price?

Never mind. I did a search.

Get some performance shades. I got THESE a while back and for $30, I couldn't have done better. The only reason to upgrade from these would be for OCP style points, which I hear are overpriced. These shades work great, have three very very useful lense shades, are comfortable, and look great to boot.

tifosi can be very good, especially with the lens that changes density. However, I have two pair of safety glasses from AirGas welding supply. They're a perfect fit and cost something like $4.00 each. They don't look bad either. I also have a pair of Bolle, which I don't bother to wear. Too dark, and not really a good fit.

Performance Procyon Multi-Lens Eyewear are great.

They are the only one I found to be snug on the face for every kind of cycling. Using the clear ones for over an year now.

I just use my old Ray-Ban Wayfarer frames (with prescription lenses). The frames must be twenty years old at this point. They block the wind quite well (well enough so that I can wear them when riding my motorycle with an open-face helmet), they're comfortable, and they're pretty much unbreakable.

There's a lot to be said for glasses that aren't use-specific. I can wear these anytime, on the bike or off. What with having to have regular (untinted) glasses, and sunglasses, the proliferation of glasses would get out of hand if I had a purpose-specific pair for everything I do.

*Dont* go for the DHB (about $30 or something close), they come with 3 lenses for various light conditions (blue looks nicest) but changing the lenses will eventually break the frame, atleast for me it did.
