    We need to know your head size for a proper recommendation. That said, I like a used set of "new" M frame, half jacket, flak jacket, as mentioned, with a lens that doesn't have an iridium coating. The iridium is slightly more prone to scratching. So you want to look for Grey, Warm Grey, VR28, Dark Grey, etc...

    If you want to look good while going about your outdoors work, but still want to keep safety in mind, I would suggest taking any of the above mentioned frames and replacing the lenses with your own custom cut ones using a pair of old (or new) safety glasses. That way it won't matter if the lenses get all beat up and scratched because they cost you next to nothing but still have a great level of safety. The original lenses can be put to better use!

    Just my 2c :smile:

    Will also provide you with some insight and hands-on experience with custom cutting lenses

    If you get a pair of M-Frames you can source used SI lenses (clear and grey) on ebay for pretty cheap. SI sets usually go for ~$60 and you'll have a great set of safety work glasses.

    Standard lenses like black iridium pop up on ebay for $40 all the time as well, so replacing lenses is pretty easy if you're not too picky on what size they are.
