Presciption Sunglasses

So right now, my RX sunglasses are Maui Jim Wailea's. Now, I am not about to risk my $800 prescription, fashion oriented RX sunglasses.

What brands / lens are out there that you guys use while biking.

I use Julbo's Trail model. Bought them brand new for 85+shipping on eBay and Im yet to see sunglasses for MTB with more technology. Highly recommended.

I've used Oakley half jacket's with RX, and I'm getting RX lenses put into my Giro Splitters. I might get another pair of Giro's and then I'll have one with RX tinted lenses and one with clear for night riding.
