Hello all

After slogging down & uphill last week in torrential rain & mud, I seemed to get most of saddleworth into my eyes!!

What do you wear when it's overcast / wet ?

I have some Bolle sunglasses for summer but I wouldn't have been able to see a thing in the conditions as they have dark lenses!

I'm after something cheap. Haha

Thanks

Adam

A lot of folks use clear safety glasses, dirt cheap they are

I use some Massi glasses with interchangeable lenses, only used clear and yellow so far, only thing with the yellow ones is you can't see dog eggs :(

Endura Spectrum glasses are popular in the shop & cheapish @ ~£15

That'll be me. If you go to your local safety shop they have all colours, designs for really good prices. Not the most fashionable, but neither am i

Rudy Project Rydon with Photochromic ImpactX lenses.

and an old pair of Briko Lucifer if I can't remember where I've put the Rudys.

Oops didn't see the "cheap" bit.

BBB do a range of glasses for peanuts, which are OK.

Avenir sunglasses for bright conditions, and UVEX safety glasses for any other time, which is most of the time :roll: The Uvex are good because they are scratch resistant, and don't fog up. The Avenir glasses, I found on a rock on the beach.
