  • Sunglasses

    Howdy all. Inquiring about what are good sunglasses for IMAC flying. I have read good things about Oakley Prizm's (not sure what lens color). I do not want to start a brand war but would like to know what sunglasses most use while flying at a competition that helps see your plane better.

    Good question. I have prescription sunglasses so I can see. 😁

      Yep. I'd like to know the group wisdom on that as well. I'd need something that would fit over prescription glasses. I know that complicates things a bit since now there are 2 separate sets of lenses involved. I've tried a few different options - none of which were great. Glad you started this thread.

        I have used these for years. They support AMA, if that makes a difference to you.

          I've been having good luck with these: https://www.z-xg.com. They can do any Rx, including progressive. One nice part is they are not polarized so you can read your transmitter and phone screens.

            I really like the Edge Eyewear Safety Glasses with the G-15 lens. You can get them in a prescription, but that is expensive. The G-15 lens was designed for military pilots to raise contrast against a flat blue or gray sky, so helps see the plane easier. In non prescription they run around $20-40. Being safety glasses is a bonus working around spinning props and flying debris.

              There is a big advantage in Polarized lenses.
              I used to fly with the Oakley Prizm for a long time and the color is up to you to choose.
              Now I fly with Rudy Project because of the ability to use a prescription insert (im using the insert only when I fly IMAC, it has very low numbers).
