I've got a modern pair of wraprounds I bought in LA to replace a pair of Oakleys I broke on the way there. They're made by an Italian company called Electric, a really good fit that stops all mud and air coming at your eyes. When it's overcast I have a pair of old Oakly E-Wires that have seen better days but have very light lenses. If it's dark I wear my specs.

This year I need to invest in some decent prescription sunglasses.

Brikos--usually Stingers or Raiders. I was wearing the former on the trails one day last fall and a guy riding the opposite direction yelled out, "Old School!"

It sort of made my day.

Oakley half jackets. Got clear, persimmon for low light and gold iridium lenses for when the suns out (i.e. never). I like interchangeable lenses.

They also give some scope for going to prescription if (nay when) my eyesight gives up.

Prescription Oakley Cross Hairs.
Hoping to switch to contact lenses, but that's more for boarding than biking.

Anyone had any experience with the glasses with prescription inserts.

A. Are they any good (or do they fog)

B. How much roughly for the prescription bits and anyone recommend
somewhere.

I quiet enjoy my oakley racing jackets with vented lens at the moment. You could get them pretty cheap off ebay compared to price when were new.
