Depends, do you work in the field as labor or do you only drive and inspect crew work?

For labor, just a basic polycarbonate lens with cheap frame. For driving and site inspectors who aren't roughing stuff up, Ray-Ban, Persol or Costa. Persol is my favorite, I feel they have the highest quality sapphire lenses

I found some 3M safety glasses at Northern Tool for about $10, I think. They are really lightweight and flimsy, but also flexible; I don't think they will break easily. They are also sunglasses, so I use them for driving as well. One thing I hate (and this probably happens with all glasses) about the heat and humidity here is that is seems like my glasses get sweat on them in a few minutes sometimes, and then I can't see. And I can't wipe them off on my shirt because it's soaking wet! lol

I use the Oakley Radar - a model of the safety glasses they produce here in the USA. They are rated with the ANSI requirements for impact and etc. I dont trust the cheap ones with my vision. The Oakley Radar lens is interchangeable and the nose piece that holds them in place is interchangeable also.
