Saw shooting glasses that had the lenses behind the actual color lenses. It was actually two lenses. The back lenses was perscription and the front lens was colored. Who makes these. Thanks

These glasses you only use one prescription lens instead of three (three color lenses). You snap on color lenses outside and in front of prescription lens. Any web site?

However, the Ranger XLW has a system that most folks like better.

Earl... Two things to caution you about regarding this particular set up. #1 is they are substantially heavier than regular glasses and they tend to make the nose a little sore over the long haul. #2 is they fog up easily. There is little, or no, air movement between the Rx lense and the color lense which causes condensation that is very hard to clear up. The concept is great, but, in reality, I have found Decot's to be a better way, FOR ME, to go. I would rather pay for a set of Rx lenses that are light weight and don't fog up all the time. In addition, the 2 lense systems are a bitch to shoot when it rains.. Just my experience... Dan Thome (Trap2)

I've never had ANY fog problem with these Ranger RX Sporters. You can see there's plenty of space for air circulation.

The frame has an easily adjustable up/down nose piece, so can also be worn for every day use.

MTA Tom.. It's nice to know they work out well for you.... My own experience was just less than enjoyable, especially the weight issue and trying to shoot in the rain...... Dan

For Rx shooters, the two lens systems offer better impact resistance... CR39 plastic does not offer the protection of polycarbonate. I understand you can buy Rx in polycarb, but the optical quality is not as good...

regards all,

Jay
