RAGBRAI LI Route Announced on Jan. 27!

Sunglass recommendations

I’ve always had a love/hate relationship with sunglasses for riding. For non-riding purposes I have Maui Jim’s that I’ve had for years and absolutely love. But for riding I need something that is really open or vented (I sweat and fog up most glasses constantly), and also has a typical earpiece arm to fit a LOOK mirror on.
The thing is I can’t see paying $100 for a pair of sunglasses that are made of plastic.
I don’t need prescription, so you’d think it’d be an easy find.
I don’t mind multi-lenses and the chromatic kind are okay, but aren’t dark enough when in a lot of situations for me.
So anyone have a pair/model they really like that meets my needs?

I’ve worn Bolle Coachwhip polarized sunglasses for the past 10 years. They have been very durable. They fit my face really well and the lenses reduce eye stress compared to other’s that I’ve worn. They can be bought at http://www.campmor.com for $45.00. I’d love to try Oakleys, but can’t bring myself to part with the extra $.
