Cool Something Summerish...!!!!

Summers are at their peak and sun is shining bright. Temperatures are soaring everywhere; in this extreme weather I couldn't resist bringing up the question-"Which Sunglasses all you guys wear to protect your eyes?"

We have had discussions about Helmets, Armour etc. but none for eye wear and this is the right time I think. Your views are welcome

how good do you find them to be for blocking out the UV rays?

I ditched sunglasses while riding by purchasing a helmet with a shaded inner visor/shield. Jamming sunglasses into a helmet sucks... never again for me. Shaded outer helmet shields are nice, until night time. The dual shield helmets with a clear outer and a shaded inner are the answer to that age old problem. Most helmet manufacturers have them available now. Did I mention jamming sunglasses into a helmet sucks?

I wear sunglasses all the time other than when riding. No particular brand, but nothing expensive. My last sunglass purchase was a package of Dewalt shaded safety glasses. I leave a pair in each vehicle, including my bikes.

+1. I have a thousand pairs from back in the day. They just sit in a box in the closet.

Yes I know that pain exactly. Might have to look in to a full face with an integrated sun visor.

that's really the best way to go about it, kill two birds with one stone. plus as you said, these days it's so easy to get it in a lot of helmets so why not!
