This. I love mine. I can't go outside without them.

 
On a side note I'm going to try out a pair of Costa Del Mar's for fishing this year.

My half jackets are almost 3 years old now, and I've used them almost every day.  The right lens has a few small scratches, which are annoying, but otherwise they're still GTG.  Kayaking, biking, shooting, etc. no problems.

My wife just bought a pair of Minute 2.0, they're very cool.

I've been considering replacing my half jackets and just using them out on the water, but then...  the ones I have are still perfectly good, why spend the money for new ones?  And what would I get?  I love the half jackets.  So, I haven't bought anything lately.  *shrug*

ETA:  Just checked USSI, and they now have the SOLFX lenses.  A lot of styles are backordered, but they look pretty cool.  They've got the Flaks in right now.

I need glasses too.  My last pilsner glass broke in the dishwasher.  

Wait........WAT?  

CREWS safety glasses.  Buy a dozen.  A lack of having designer sunglasses has never kept any vagina from me.

But putting beer glasses in your dishmasher when they should obviously be washed by hand has, I'll bet.




(seriously, some dishwasher detergents scratch glasses and even mild ones will take off gold overlay and screened print.  If you like a glass, wash it by hand.)

Best I have ever had wear wise is a pair of Ocean Waves with the blue mirriored glass lenses. Had 'em about 7 years now, they just don't scratch! My buddy was using them one day while cutting steel with a torch, a few tiny beads of slag burned into the glass but that happens. They have seen some abuse for sure. I broke the frame last week, sending them in for new one, cost $30 for the repair.

I have oakley half jacket XLJ transitions for shooting glasses, and oakley half jacket XLJ polarized for just about everything else.

So, I'll go with Oakley XLJ's.

They are the same thing for the most part, just swap lenses. Lenscrafters has some good sales right now.

You really can't go wrong with a pair of these.

I like my Revo Undercut titanium's. Had them about a year and they've held up great.
