What do you guys use? I have clear glasses for over cast days. But what do you use for tinted lenses when it is bright out, maybe snow on the ground, very bright, for chasing phez.

I have a couple but don’t feel I always see the coloration of the bird as well as I would like. I mistook a rooster for a hen last year. My buddy gave me grief for letting a rooster fly away.

Thanks for your comments.

I've been using protective eye wear from Stihl (the power tool company) for years. I've attached a link to the style I like. They come in four different color lens. I have the Smoke for bright days and the Yellow for darker, overcast days. The Yellow really brighten up your view. They are made from optical grade polycarbonate to protect you from a pellet in the eye, and they also filter out 99% of the UV rays. Best of all is the price. $12.95 ... ion/slgls/

I would never shoot without eye protection.
I must have 6 or 7 different colors of prescription lenses for different lighting conditions.
