    After seeing this thread and seeing Yo Spiff's good review on his Scattante sunglasses, I bought a pair of Scattante sunglasses today. I got the Scattante Mestre at my local Performance shop for $30. LOVE them! I love the different lenses that they come with. I got them in white.

    Here are some pictures of the glasses with each lens color.

    I wear photochromic standard prescription glasses. I had a bad habit of losing or breaking clip-on sunglasses and prescription sunglasses, so having a pair of standard prescription glasses that I wear all the time able to act as sunglasses in sunlight was nice.

    Ditto. Unfortunately, though, people wear small sized lenses, not giant 70s style aviator glasses. I'm not looking forward to riding in the rain. I'm going to see if I can find some cheap safety glasses or goggles at Harbor Freight this weekend.

    I had two pairs of Performance "CAT-1" house brand sunglasses that I liked but both are kaputt now after 5 years of use.
    I have one pair of Nashbar brand ones as my main commuter set that are okay for the price, and also a pair of Tifosis for nicer weather riding and another pair of new Performance brand glasses which I have a clear lens on for dark riding. For early AM riding I also have a set of cheapo yellow glasses.
    I just recently got two very different Oakleys for a total of $100. Never really owned any shades this nice before. I'll see if they really make a difference.

    Love my Rudy Project Rydons with the RX adaptor. Bought them from Wiggle for less than $100 for the frames and 3 sets of lens's, this huge digital sports watch and a case. Went to my local optician and had the RX part made for about $200.
