Good sunglasses

Just wondering if any of you could recommend some good glasses. I have looked at the Oakley Polarized. They have a good reputation but are very pricey. Most of the cheap ones I have tried either fog over or slip after a few innings. Any recommendations??

I agree with oakley persimmon.Excellant choice.
To prevent the fogging on any type lens. Clean the lens with Rain x.

A friend of mine got hit in the face while wearing Oakley's.
They didn't shatter, thereby saving his eyes.
Good glasses, well worth the price if you need to wear sunglasses while playing.

I agree , Oakley Persimmon, makes all the different colors look just like they do without the glasses.Don't look dark as other glasses do. also, Jim Maui make some good ones .

Try looking at at bike shops. I have
transitions(changes with the light conditions)called Cat1,I bought at
Perfomance Bike for $44(on sale from
$60)that work very well. Vented at the
top to prevent fogging. Also comes with
an amber lens for low light, but haven't had to use them.

I tried a lot of different sunglasses in the low to medium price range......none of them "held up"....I liked some of them to begin with, but the covering on the lens'was inferior and didn't last. Some were too heavy...others didn't hold the shape, etc, etc.....I finally decided that I was going find a pair that I liked and pay the matter what. I looked at them all and settled on the "Maui Jims".....they are pricey but are by far the best I've used....light weight, fit great and handle the glare exceptionally well. My eyes are sensitive to glare and these solve that problem. It's all about the lense and you get what you pay for.....Some less expensive glasses give a distorted image. Good luck on your's not as easy as one might think.
