3m polarized safeties. And the string. Course they might have gotten purchased on the business account.

Ha! I love safety glasses from the hardware store! They are affordable and make great sunglasses. Been using my business account to buy them, figuring I'm not to out of line writing them off, since they usually are my safety glasses.

Did you check the member list for IRS agents. I'll be right back. And I might need an edit logan. Lol. Seriously I like a light tint and figure the lenses won't shatter in a bad swim

Ha, the IRS is so under funded right now you would have to run a big red flag up your pole to get their attention, and might have to light it on fire to get audited...

I also prefer a light tint. My most recent paddling sunglasses are a yellow lens. It's good enough in direct light, but excellent with a little overcast. Cheap enough to not get concerned if I lose or damage them too.

Other reason I like safeties-cost. Sacrificed two pair, no string on them, to the river gods during my kayaking course. I mostly just use a light polarized. Need reading glasses so dark is bothersome.

For running the river they are worthless, but if you are going to be in a pool or lake and doing roll clinics they are actually a valuable asset. When first learning my roll I used pool goggles to aid with visual orientation. It really helped with switching back and forth between an onside and offside. For what they cost I would throw a pair in your gear bag (my earlier comment regarding goggles was in reference to downriver boating).

There must be thousands of sunglasses at the bottom of rivers across the U.S. Lol Maybe if I need a new pair I'll just dive down to the bottom.

Losing my Oakley's along with my Gopro in the Atlantic really hit my hard for a few days. For now on I'll be buying cheap sunglasses and using two safety lanyards for Gopro

Solar Shields Amber. You can get em at Wally World for $20, they are polarized so you can look at the desert varnish and tilt your head in awe, and they fit over prescription glasses (like old folks). I prefer to buy the biggest ones so I can look like the biggest dork on the river.
