Sunglasses

What sunglasses do you wear while driving your Boxster (JD’s response should be good)? I wear Maui Jim; I find them comfortable, lightweight, and durable.

Transitions lenses in my Mykita (German design & manufacture, naturally) prescription frames ;^)
But those only work with the top down; luckily (?) it's typically not sunny here this time of year.

A couple variations of this, but the color and shading are what I love the best...I can go into a sunrise or sunset without being blinded. I have worn them for the last 15 years, oh yeah...they are industrial safety glasses!

I use to have Transition lenses many years ago, I now wear contacts. Have you considered wearing contacts? No more fogging, no more spots from rain, and better visibility. But you have to remember to wear safety glasses when working under your cars.

When driving, hiking, kayaking, tennis, bicycling or almost anything I wear these Edge Dakuras which are polarized (required at altitude) military impact rated, ansi and osha rated and practically unbreakable. Oh, and $39.99 here in Denver. The best. And they come in copper, dark, blue and green (U.S. Air Force color)

+1 on the Maui Jims. Yeah, they're expensive, but the optics are first rate. On my bike, I use Wileyx, mainly for the wind protection. They're expensive too and IMHO, not worth the big $$$.

It's the only Porsche Design item I own I swear!!!



Went out with a girl who used to work in the sunglasses industry and she says the profit margin on any sunglasses are silly... 80%+ and up.

It always starts at the top. Then ends with the unmentionables. Are you sure all you have are the glasses?
