Shooting Glasses?

So, it looks like I may have lost my favorite shooting glasses. I had (hopefully it will be I still have, but it aint looking good) some issued Oakleys, and I loved them. Very scratch resistant, comfy, even a nice case. (As it turns out, I still have the dark lenses, and the hard case.)

I'd prefer glasses with changeable lenses. What do you guys recommend and why?

I can tell you I am not interested at all in Revisions - at least the "Sawfly", based on past experience.

The RX-600 model shown on the link have been the best shooting glasses I've had in a long, long time. The optical clarity and durability have been outstanding. I ordered the clear lenses, but ended up with the photogray lenses- and, I guess I'm totally OK with that. They've been great.

Does anyone have a suggestion for a good supplier of replacement prescription lenses for Ray-Bans? All of the sites that I have found on Google seem a bit odd.

I'm a big Oakley fan. Take your pick, most of them have interchangeable lenses.

I like my M-Frames and Flak Jackets

attached are my FJ's

I'm guessing you're AD. If so and you want Oakleys, try this site. You have to jump through a couple of hoops, but you can save a few bucks.

Eddie, I'm not AD anymore, but I will say that site is very nice for those who are.

Oakley does give nice price breaks for military - we ordered some stuff from them the first time I deployed. They were good people to deal with.

Look guys, if you are looking for glasses that have a specialized application and you like Oakleys I can tell you that they look after the poeple that wear them:

-Oakley designs and manufactures glasses for OUR guys in OUR fights around the world without bowing to political pressure.

-Oakley gives discounts to OUR military

-Oakley supports military famliy 'causes' with real money.

-When Lance Armstrong was diagnosed with testicular cancer and was in the hospital with a very BAD prognosis, the president of Oakley (one of his sponsors) called him personally and told him that they would help him any way they could, and they did NOT cancel his deal with them even though it looked like he might die. Of course Lance lived and beat the French 7 times... Good deal for Oakley!

Oakley is made up of GOOD PEOPLE.

yea.... I saw no Sawflys and figured you for army. the sawflys earned their special place in hell IMHO....

anywho, Oakleys are great, but for inexpensive glasses that are quasi-stylish and very easy and awesome on lens swapping check out the CDI glasses by ESS. myself, along with much of my platoon has been sporting them over here for several months now and they are great.

Matty, how durable are those glasses you mentioned? Will they scratch if you breathe on them wrong, or are they pretty good?

Try Wiley x.

they are pretty darn scratch resistant. I've been using them since November, including changing from clear to dark lenses damn near every day in dirty and dusty conditions. they have held up pretty well for me, and I am now finally about to get some replacement lenses. considering what these lenses went thru, 6 mos was well worth it. they will last much longer when I use them upon returning stateside. also, replacement lenses are only about $15 per set if you would need to get them.
