    As far as polarized lenses go,
    I like the amber tint for my driving glasses. Useful even in fog.
    They'd be my choice for the range too.
    Darker tint when on the water, or just loafing around.
    I have the magnetic kind that attach to my Rx glasses, so switching is easy.
    The Rx lenses are polycarbonate so I'm gtg.

    Have them for several years and use with a movable prescription insert ... mostly clear indoors and yellow(ish) tinted outdoors ...
    good (enough) fit ...
    the considerable force to join/take apart ensures that they will not fall apart by their own or ricochet forced volition ...
    no complains so far ..

    Needing prescription inserts always shy me away from the fancier eye pro options, are the inserts alright? Do you notice them?

    Same here. Uvex Genisis with the insert frames are my choice. Can’t find the mirrored lenses anymore though…

    FYI, military/LEO dont allow polarized lenses so the ones with APEL or other military certifications wont be available in polarized....i bring that up because a few Wiley-X models are on such lists.

    I doubt it. My prescription is pretty strong. Get the polycarbonate? Lenses. Much thinner and lighter. No need for “safety” glasses since you’re behind safety Lens. And the shape of the inserts means it doesn’t get so far from the Center that the thickness ramps up much anyways.

    It was worth it to get the same look as most onsite and it also gets me out of. The “smoggles” requirements. Not even sure if there are inserts for the smaoggles. And after a few shifts, they forget all about harassing me over them…
