I just use a pair of aviators that I had ballistic lenses put in. Not only are they functional, but they make me look like a total ass on top of that. That's the way I like it.

You might want to check which way the lenses pop out for changing on those Wiley X's. There were a lot of people that had problems with their SG-1's back in the middle east because the lenses popped out towards the inside. Meaning a concussion from an explosion or shrapnel and shit like that would pop the lenses into their eyes because there wasn't really any frame holding it from going back. Not a feature I'd want in a pair of shooting glasses.

It worked well enough for these boys then it'll do more than fine for my domestic needs; http://www.opticsplanet.net/wiley-x-goggles-reviews.html
I won't be seeing any explosions or shrapnel.

Ratracer I'm going to use the JP-2 for all three purposes although they dooffer a wide range of glasses for a multiple amount of uses as per the website.

Currently I use a pair of cheap crap I got from Dick's ages ago.
But I plan to soon invest in a pair of Wiley-X model 'JP-2' for shooting, cycling and outdoor volleyball.

I found a local resale of Wiley-X from their site and picked up a pair of the JP-2 after trying them on. They are very comfortable, will be using them for snowboarding and shooting this weekend. Should also be able to use them for riding as well. Thanks for the info Janq.

BTW, got them for $105.50 +tax, great deal!! Anyone interested, here's the contact located in Fremont, CA:

The guy also sells other cool "Guy" toys (knives, optics, lights, airsoft, shades, and gun stuff...etc.)

Janq, those Wiley-x glasses look great.

This year, I got a new air of glasses- they had to be big enough and shatterproof enough to be used as shooting glasses, and I went through 3 different pairs before I found one that worked okay. Wiley also does prescriptions too, for that model, so I'm now considering ditching the current new pair and going for one of these. Interestingly, one reseller is where my eye-surgery doctor is. :)

Yeah I need glasses that not only can stand up to shooting but for cyclling the air rushing by my face dries out or even removes my contacts never mind bugs and stuff. My regular sunglasses (Revo) don't work as air rushes around them and they move around too much. A positive seal against the face is the win. Outdoor volleyball in sand is the same problem along with sweat in the eyes. I didn't want to pay crazy Oakley *cough* sucka prices either, been there done that.

The Wiley-X are top rated, conform to the highest Mil-Spec ratings for impact resistance (tactical goggles) and they look normal enough that I can wear them around town and not look like I'm about to go swimming or skiing.

The ESS are also rated very highly and pass the ballistics test, 12ga at 30' and ONLY cost 50$ mine were 90 but that's with perscription lenses.

I have these

http://www.opticsplanet.net/ess-ice-sunglasses.html

and I love them I wear them for everything outdoors, hunting, shooting fishing, boating, sport, never tried a shotgun but I know they will sto a paintball at close range. They wrap around and fit great, and are tough enough to handle everything I do. My eyes are very very sensitive so I'm picky about what I wear and thesehave never failed me. If your looking for a non-goggle type wrap around glass check them out before you spend 100$ on something else.

I wear WileyX Sabers with amber lenses. They are comfortable, my only problem is when it’s warm and you sweat, they like to slip.

Those are what I wear in the field when I'm on foot. Those things kick ass. I've never had a problem with them slipping, though.

These are the same ones I've been using for a couple of years now.
They seem to serve their purpose quiet well, and the interchangeable lenses are cool. 8)

so i just went and tried on some JP-2's, and i was really disapointed with the "light adjusting lenses". inside, there extremly transparent, it feels like im wearing un-tinted glasses. sadly, i sorta felt the same way outside in the sun. i still had to squint, wth? was i just trying on some bunk shades or what?
