    I'm not sure if this is the most appropriate forum for this question...

    My current sunglasses are pretty scuffed up, and it's about time I get a new pair. I've liked what I have - Hobie Wedge with copper-shaded polycarbonate polarized lenses - supposedly they are better to see wind shifts with while sailing, and they definitely improve contrast and reduce glare.

    But maybe there's something better out there!

    What do you guys and gals wear to shield your eyes while driving your truck?

    When I'm done it will have a custom fabbed winch bumper and hopefully a Softtopper.
    Prescription, polarized in Bolle Key West frames.

    I don't think it matters the brand as long as you have polarized lenses.

    Once a person uses polarized sun glasses, there is no way you can go back to non polarized.

    I'm a big Native fan. Awesome optical clarity.
    Check out their website.
    Also, you can often get really good sale prices on Natives at discount sites like rei outlet, mountain gear, etc.

    Smith Optics are supposed to be great. Personally, I've worn polarized Black Flys for years and years.

    Also, native has a policy where if anything happens to your glasses-ANYTHING- They will do a one time $30 replacement.

    Regular prices are usually $120-150, but on the sites I mentioned you can often get them for ~$70. Combined with the $30 replacement (down the road), that's like two pair for $100 for some quality shades.

    One can never have too many light bars.
    Persol PO3112S. Timeless styling and the build quality is excellent. Ive had mine for 5 years and they still look brand new. Plus James Bond wears them and he pulls.
