    Cool Sunglasses for archery

    Womble and I have this thing for Oakley sunglasses but we stumbled upon a fantastic find yesterday!!! Womble bought some 'M-frame' design but these are new with spring loaded hinges. What this means is when you put the glasses on they sit square on your face, then you can press the hinge at whatever side you shoot to and hey presto... the lens sits tight to your face and there is no problem seeing past the bridge?? piece.

    I shall find the link to a pair and post them when I get home from uni!!

    These are stunning glasses though and I have ordered a pair today.

    What colours of the lens would be best? seems like the orange tint is good.

    Do sunglass lenses work the same way as camera filters. ie transmit more reflected light from complimentary colours? If so I need some 'x-ring gold' glasses

    This time I'm going to get it right .... or possibly not

    As for replacement lens - how many colours do you want. Oakley do various shapes and colours to suit all needs (I think!!). I will see if my purple / blue iridium fits when my new one's arrive!!!
