    Well,

    I'm considering retiring my Smith Moab shields and am considering my options. Requirements:

    1) Interchangable lenses (smoke, amber, clear)
    2) Very good wind blocking
    3) <$50

    Anybody have favorites? I know it's always possible to find clearance deals on glasses, so what do people like?

    Got mine on closeout, but only one set of lightly smoked lenses, and the totally road weenie bug-eyed look is completely free :D

    Another pair of Smiths on sale. Or break the >$50 rule and get the new Specialized glasses, you will only need one set of lenses. They are photo-cromatic so there's no need for an amber, smoke, clear, etc.

    No - it was the capitalization I was hacking on him for. :p

    They make good sunglasses without the side shields. Although their windblocking goes *way* downhill sans shields.
