I agree on the two pairs of riding goggles. I have to keep a very dark pair for bright days. My eyes are very sensitive to light due to an infraction caused by the slight estigmatism I have. To much bright light and I am light blinded so dark sun glasses are a must. The day/night is good for those early morning and late afternoon / night riding. I will stick with dark lenses the rest of the time. I just keep my day/night interchangeable with me now for my HD glasses and I am fine for all occassions. The lenses are easy in / out and I can keep them in my pocket in their protective bag.miles to go said:I have 2 pair of Panoptix, one that stays dark and one that changes (day/night) from light to dark depending on the light. I bought the day/night pair thinking it would eliminate the problem of having to carry 2 pairs of glasses because the dark pair is too dark to wear at night. Unfortunately, the day/night glasses don't get dark enough for me in bright sunlight so i'm still stuck with 2 pair of glasses. Last year i bought a pair of the WileyX riding glasses ($50) and the mirror coating started coming off after the first week. I called the company and they sent me another pair. A week later the second pair was doing the same thing. Needless to say, i'm not having to much luck in my search for the perfect glasses. On a positive note, the Panoptix are very good quality and do provide a good seal for riding without a shield.
I just ordered a couple of pairs from sportrx. They will send you the goggles, let you try them on to choose the set you like, then fit them with prescription lens.. I wanted some goggles, not sunglasses with foam, and they have quite a few to choose from.machinist said:be thankful you can get them in prescription. I cant because of the strenth of the lens required and have to wear fitovers.

I ended up calling for another set of yellow lenses, told her I wanted for shooting and dusk driving (my eyes suck at night) so the yellow cuts the glare even if you lose some depth. Lenses came in a week with just the right tint. Seem to remember they had alot of choices for different styles.
I agree the best glasses i have had . I have 4 pairs now.JamieWG said:These aren't goggles, but I love 'em. I bought two pair last year, one clear, one smoked and they work great. Foam around the edges keeps your eyes sealed from the wind and they don't fog up.
