Which Sunglasses? Just Interested

Recommended Posts

just wondering, do the shades fog up when u run?

Sometimes they do.

You may wanna get shades with slits at the corner of the lenses. They work well for me.

Yup,oakley has those vented lenses with "holes" on the top part of its lenses so that it will not fog up.

shouldn't be much of a problem, and i've got reason to believe that its qutie commonly done -afterall, we can't say that all rugby players don't need eyesight correction, no? (:

the reason I switch from spect to contact lens is because of sports. I run, swim, bike, suba dive and even wakeboarding in contact lens. So far so good, not much a problem except for wakeboarding (lens can drop out in you fall really hard)

But the main reason for my switch to contact lens.................... so that I can wear sunglasses.

I just lost my Nike Mojo too about a month ago!

Will need to buy replacement before race season too (Sundown not included)!

Hi everyone,

Though it may not be necessary during competitions, but I hope to get a pair of sunglasses/ sun visors for the long term. The Singapore sun is getting too glaring for comfort.

I know it's not going to come cheap so I hope to get all the advice that I can.

Which sunglasses do you guys recommend? Where can I get it from? something with UV protection minimum

Thanks

I've tried various shades in my past life. Had 2 pairs of oakley fives, 1 pair of alpina, 1x oakley m-frame, 1x bolle, 1x nike..... Depending on purpose, the shades are good for different activities.

Am now totally in love with my M-frames. I use them for runs, bike, mountaineering, driving, anything under the sun literally. Large coverage that prevent rays from coming entering from the top/ sides. Interchangeable lenses for different conditions. Very light but hardy. rubber nose padding nonslip. Best feature to me, the lens is a singular piece --> which means for cyclists or triathletes, you can peer up and still get a complete vision when on aero-bars. Unlike split (2pc) lenses, when you try to eye the roads on the bike, you can't really see above your nose bridge.

Of cos, Oakleys are damaging on the wallet....... My $2 worth. :)

Ahh the hydrophobic lenses. Not just water, suppose to repel sports drinks & stuff. :) Well I didn't choose Radar or Flak because - (1) more expensive, & (2) didn't fit my face shape - too bulky. Also cos most of my friends own M-frames so we can share lenses. ;) Presumably you're a guy so can take the Radar. I've not used those new hydrophobic lenses so can't comment. But there's a neat video demo on official Oakley website that you can view. I'd rather spend my $$ to get better/ more coloured lenses. Pick appropriate ones for your sports.

I found these 2 parallel importers in Singapore. Much cheaper. There's some explanation abt the warranty stuff on their respective websites if you do some research. I didn't buy from them cos no stock of what I wanted. But quite responsive, just sms them.

My 2c worth.... Go for the M-frames. Go with something that you like and have confidence racing in (& thrashing), as opposed to lenses. :) To me the more important lens technology would be picking the right colours, polarized, iridium etc, rather than repelling water & sweat. If caught in heavy rain, unless you've wipers, I don't think the lens will be totally 'clear'. :) Plus.... the ultimate vanity factor, the M-frame leaves a smaller tanline mark on side of face! ;)

    • OhMyGod, 50 pushups, well done ūüĎć ¬† Saw Lexus Tan facebook, he own self say know qi gong,¬†can apply.¬† ¬† I scare scare, should I call?¬†
    • Slightly OT, but from the Straits Times article quoted by Lady Ice: A time of 2:46:57 is fast of course. Impossibly fast for a slow runner like me, but whenever I look at race results from marathons elsewhere in the world, and compare it to the times of our best runners of countries in Southeast Asia, even if one were to exclude the times of African runners from the equation, our runners here in SE Asia appear to be outclassed. I've always wondered why???¬†ūü§Ē Even in Japanese marathons, the Japanese winner's times are usually at 2:30++ on average. Are we at some disadvantage because we live in a hot climate, compared to those in temperate countries? When I mentioned to a runner from Victoria (AUS) that I usually run in temps of¬†27-33C, his jaw dropped...
    • SCSM T shirts are also usually sold at the pre-race expo, not just in SCSM but also other IAAF certified¬†marathons in other parts of the world. The actual finisher shirt handed to you at the finish line¬†is of course¬†different though. I have nothing against those who want to buy a souvenir¬†or presents for family and friends back home, but I strongly believe¬†finisher shirts should be earned. Medals are usually just made of cheap metal or plastic, but to a runner, that "token" represents all the blood sweat and tears¬†¬†you put into finishing the race. I don't remember where I read this, but there was this story about a guy whose wife completed her first marathon in Chicago. He told his friend: "I just bought her an expensive designer bag. That finisher certificate she¬†got from completing the marathon probably cost the organizers a few cents to print.¬†If she had to choose between the two¬†of which to keep though, I know it would be that finisher's certificate & medal on our wall!"¬†ūü•ī
    • I‚Äôm not a local, so I didn‚Äôt know the story about that pastry chef, but the link to the Straits Times article was an amusing read. It said he picked up running in 2011, and only runs 1 km at each time (!?!?!?) on weekends, yet he managed to cover ¬†19kms in an actual race before giving up. I suspect though he probably walked most of that. If he could cover that distance running without training though, he must be either gifted, or very fit from another sport or life activity. Imagine what he would actually be capable of if he just took the time to train properly!
    • Oh, don't know how they got hold of them. But during last year's OCBC Cycle, I saw¬†the organizer selling past years' shirts at¬†the race pack collection venue. I think this is good recycling practice as there should be excess and will be a pity just to scrap them. As well sell cheap to cyclists who may want to buy them.
