    If you do not need correction in the lens, the Oakley M-Frames are a good choice.

    I have Rangers and it's pretty easy to scratch the lens. The frames are guaranteed but not the lenses.


    If they drop face down on anything but grass you'll end up with a scratch on the lens. Usually right where you look.


    Apparently it's on purpose so they won't shatter. Don't know about other manufactures.

    Decot, the only way to go. Been using Decot for 30+ years.

    Monte...

    Any of the top brands, Randolph Ranger, Post4, Decot etc... are fine, but like anything else your experience will be more defined by the vendor you use to purchase and/or fit an Rx.

    I will tell you that to maximize eye protection, try and stay with polycarbonate lenses - standard plano lenses that come with most sets. If you have lenses made in Rx, while CR39 plastic is optically better, it pales in eye protection.

    Personally... I have a set of basic Rangers with 1/2 dozen plano colored lenses, bought through Morgan Optical in NY by Mail Order - their price was in my budget with absolutely no regrets in 5 years.

    Good hunting,

    Jay

    I've had Decot Internationals for about 10 years and the only reason I've had to mail order new lenses was when my Rx changed. Started wearing contacts a few years ago and now use the plano lenses with no scratching problem.

    About six months ago I broke the nosepieces off the frames and called Decot, they asked me to send the old frame back with a pair of lenses so they could guarantee fit and they had them (with a new frame) back to me within a week.

    I've always gone through their main office in Phoenix and the service has been great. 800-528-1901.
