I really envy you - I'm stuck with prescription lenses. Oakleys are the best established brand and so charge a premium. I've heard that Uvex are just as good - at least the lenses offer similar levels or protection and they look the same - and can be quite a bit cheaper:

A New Cooler !

I read your other 2 post, and both seem your concerned with riding in the heat. As I'm
typing this, it is 116 degrees with the heat index here in North Carolina....If I wanted to
go for a ride right now, I would put a cooler inside my Topeak Truck Bag filled with ice,
and water bottles. Keep a wet cloth wrapped around the arteries in my neck, stop often,
and keep dipping the cloth in the cooler to keep it as cold as possible. But it still would
be tough...So to stay under the 100.00 dollars for the glasses, order this for your
Birthday ! http://www.amazon.com/Topeak-Trunk-B..._bxgy_sg_img_a Good Luck with the hot
weather riding, and Happy Birthday early ! Richard

Well thank you guys. Yeah Its really hot in here lol.. but I cycle in the afternoon between 6 and 8.30 pm so the sun will start getting down. I have an old oakley minute but the lenses have decided to get scratched. That cooler looks a great idea but I prefer a backpack on my back.
