Yes, my glasses are rated for safety glasses. I can also wear them at work, too.

Wear safety rated sunglasses in the day time and a clear shield of my open face helmet. Usually buy my sunglasses at Lowe's and wear them for safety glasses anyway, running power tools, mowing, etc. Whole shelf of safety rated sunglasses at the Lowe's store........ most got the very hard to break frames on them. I have learned that even the very hard to break frames will pop if it is below freezing and you put too much pressure on them.

I usually wear a full face but I have good pair of Oakley's and just bought a pair of the Epoch Eyewear transition lenses glasses. They are nice, light, comfortable, provide UV protection, shatterproof and the cool part is they are magnetic so you can stick them to your tank or fender if you need to without fear of dropping them. I do wish the transition lenses got a little darker but they are pretty good overall.

100% brand moto-x goggles over my scrip glasses

changeable lenses (color/scratches) strap over helmet, double padded breathing non clouding with replacable padding.

$35 and a hell of a lot better than a ladybug in the eye @ 80 mph



orange body & strap w/baby blue lense

For eye protection I wear padded riding glasses from Epoch Eyewear. The pair I wear most often have transition lenses so they are good in all light conditions.

I also have them with yellow and smoke lenses.
