    You didn't say if you need correction or just safety/sun glasses.

    You didn't say cheap. :rofl: I only have one set of eyes. I don't mind spending big money on them.

    I also have a pair of these...

    You can pick them up for under $50 They come with multiple lenses and best of all you can change out the ear pieces to use the included strap. The strap is MUCH more comfortable under hearing protection.

    You get a lot of bang for your buck with the Wiley's.

    I've been happy with Oakleys. I think the model was Strike, but mine have replaceable lenses so I can go clear indoors or tinted outside. Not cheap but very versatile.

    That's the thing "not cheap" I got these Juliet's as a hand me down... Heck if I think their worth 400 brand new lol. Pallets are goo brand though just pricey. If anyone has these Wiley's please let me know your thoughts.

    I don't have that pair, but I have tried them on. I didn't like the foam all the way around. They felt like ski goggles to me.

    How long is your typical range session? It actually makes a difference. For me, I can be at a USPSA match for 6+ hours in changing light conditions. After 2 hours or so, ANY glasses with stems (except for the Rudy's. They are ULTRA thin) start to give me a headache. My ear pro presses them into a nerve or something behind my ear.

    Went to a bass pro shop found out I didn't like those glasses but liked the p17. I think im going get them prescriptive so during the day I have good eye protection and can see

    I love my oalkey half jacket xlj's. Been using them for about 8 years, and all of the parts can be replaced if needed.
