sunglasses online

Hi

Does anyone have an online site for buying sunglasses that they can recommend? I see many options, but I do not know one from the other.

I appreciate your help.

Thank you and ride safe,
Brian

Why not just go to sunglass hut at any mall? Sunglasses are like shoes, they don't always fit right.

Find them online cheaper after you know what fits.

I highly recommend polarized lenses. Might not notice indoors (store lighting) but outside everything looks hi-def, pretty crazy.

If you know what you like, check out Sierra Trading Post. They sell last years overstock sports and outdoor equipment at huge discounts. I've bought a ton of clothes, camping gear, and it's where I got to get my Costa Del Mar sunglasses. (which they don't seem to have any good ones in stock right now)

Invite code: http://www.sierratradingpost.com/inv.../eric~ventura/

I think they give extra discounts if you sign up using an invite code.

After you sign up, they send E-mail flyers with extra discounts that you don't see on the site. So I've picked up $250 sunglasses that they show as 40% off, for only $75 shipped after the flyer discount.

Be careful where you shop online and make sure they're reputable.

Even with amazon.com and buy.com resellers, it's surprisingly easy to end up with a counterfeit product.

I can't remember the users name but if you hit up the WERA boards Toledo Honda has Oakley's at discounts. I got a pair of Fives awhile back for $50.

I bought my Oakelys online ... well worth the $$$
