    The Tifosi slip is around 50 bucs and comes with interchangeable lenses, one of which is clear.

    Consider a yellow lens. If I understand the physics, by blocking most of the blue light, it actually causes your blue receptors to go into overdrive. Visual equivalent of turning up the volume.

    I really like my smith catalyst glasses. Came with 4 sets of lenses, grey polarized, tobacco, yellow, clear. As the days get shorter I keep the yellows in my pack in case I get caught out, only takes a second to switch. I find I only use the dark grey lenses for mid day rides, most of the time I use the tobaccos.

    Very light, comfortable for my face. I never loose glasses, but I scratch 'em, and the extra lenses mean I will still get some use from them even if I scratch my favs.

    Go to the hardware store and check out the safety glasses.

    These are made by Gateway Safety the model is Scorpion. I don't know what they cost, I borrow them from work. Uvex also makes quality safety glasses.

    ^^^ sells military balistic grade glasses for around 45 dollars. The basic package comes with 2 lenses (clear and tinted), an anti-fog wipe, and a case. They look great, fit well, and cover your eyes completely. I love mine.

    good luck with the hunt, hope this helped

    Hey there, my lbs was selling serfas brand glasses, so I bought a pair. They come w/ 4 interchangable lenses(which once you get good at you can do while driving). Here is the website: www.serfasoptics.com. They are amazing glasses, I'd advise them. Hope this helps somewhat!
