    Sunglasses

    I recently received a discount voucher for Oakley sunglasses which, when used at my local Oakley outlet, means that I can get some decent sunglasses at even more decent prices. The question is, are there any Oakley sunglasses which people would recommend for archery? I know a friend who shoots compound (I shoot recurve) and he uses the EVZero sunglasses because they have no bridge and I have seen a lot of professional archers using Radars, or something similar.

    Does anyone here have any experience with Oakleys and recommend a particular frame/lens?

    Frameless glasses that wrap round are good for shooting. Watch out for nose pads as they can make the edge of the glass lift away from the nose creating a frame effect, just where you don't want it. The pair I bought had rubber nose pads that could be removed, and I removed them to give the close fit I wanted.

    I have an old set of M-Frames with Mumbos which I used for many years shooting clay and rifle - they were amazing and the only reason I don't use them now is I am a prescription glasses wearer.

    I would think they'll be perfect for archery.

    A lot of archers I know personally go down the aviator route rather than wrap-rounds.

    Firstly because literally everyone looks cool when wearing aviators

    Secondly the large glasses area compared to the thin frames reduce the issues of frames being in the way of the sight/ string etc
