Rudy Project or other shades advice.....

This past Saturday I survived my first club ride of 30 miles, whew. It was a great day to ride. However it was a bit bright out and my wimpy glasses that 'automatically' change just did not cut it. I have precription eyeglasses and for the most part I like that they will automatically change. But when riding into the sun I need more protection or darker lens.

I was talking to a buddy about his "Rudy Project" glasses and he was just raving about them and they looked great for being a flip-up style of shades. Most of the others that I've seen make the user look very old or are so loose they never stay in the same place with even a little wind. Does anyone have exprience with these or perhaps others?

Thanks,
Wisaxet

I don't have the flip-up style of Rudy's. But the Rudy Project Kerosene that I do have are great. They have outlasted the Oakley's I got a couple month's before them. Rudy Project get's 2 thumbs up from me.

A friend of mine has a pair of Bolle's with perscription lenses in them. I never see him without them on. He absolutely loves them and he can't figure out how he went this long without having perscription sunglasses.
