Cheap Mountain Biking Sunglasses

I don't buy expensive sunglasses because I'm a klutz and scratch, destroy or loose them - usually within a year, especially mountain biking sunglasses. So, yeah, I'm a gas station glasses guy.

Several years ago I bought a pair of Pugs at a hardware store in St. George and really liked them.

The orange tinted lenses block just enough light so I'm not squinting yet add sharpness like yellow lenses. And they make the sandstone of Moab and the Fall leaves look even more colorful. The only thing I don't like is the Pugs logo etched on the left lens.

The frame is light yet pretty tough (tested by me many times). The arms have the right amount of curl to hug around my ears and they don't pinch my head. And the rubber nose pads stay put on my nose.

Last month I scratched my good pair but haven't found a replacement at the few gas stations I checked. Fearing that this model may be retired, I checked the Pugs website. Relief, they still sell them. So I bought 3 pair from the Pugs web store, and saved 30% with the code SUNNY30 I found here. My total after tax (free shipping) was $38. Not bad. Let's see if I can make them last more than 3 years.

Sunglasses named PUGS can actually stay put on one's nose, whowouldaknown ?
I think you should etch a number on the right lens, #1, #2, #3 to keep track of them.

True, you'd think Pugs is a bad name for a brand of sunglasses.

I like the marking idea. Maybe I'll give them names, like Alice, Betty, Carla, Delilah, etc.
