    You could also get tented lens covers on your rifle scope if you wanted to avoid sunglasses.
    I've tried them and wear em sometimes depending on the lighting. The problem has been they're too dark, cause me to miss seeing game I'd normally have no trouble seeing on cloudy days. I'm getting ready to order some tinted prescription glasses which will be polarized. My normal clear hunting lenses are polarized and help some; I think a tint would help more. The answers here sound like rose-colored glasses might be the way to go.

      I almost never wear sunglasses when hunting. The only time I do is during the winter when the sun is really glaring off the snow. Then I just use my polarized fishing sunglasses - the lenses on those are gray. I have just never needed sunglasses for hunting, beyond that. I know people who swear by amber lenses; they say that the amber color really helps brighten things in low light. Never tried them myself though.

        Polarized is good, best PROTECT your eyes...make sure that the glasses have a high UV rating...!! In time, UV can SERIOUSLY hurt your eyes...!!

Worked VERY well when hunting in snow. Let's see ... I think I have a photo. Yep. 1981. When hunting I prefer to have as much color vision variability as possible so I seldom wear sunglasses. Clip-on sunglasses are a genuine handicap. Adding that extra layer of glass/plastic really cuts back on sharpness.

            Let I just say that this is the first time I have ordered from this seller and, as such, was a little hesitant to make the purchase. However, the customer service oriented approach used quickly dispelled these worries. Within a day of submitting my order, I received an email from them thanking me for my purchase and stating that they had included a complimentary hard case and the microfiber cloth with these sunglasses. Within a day of receiving my order, I received a followup email from them thanking me again for the order and assuring 100% customer satisfaction. Outstanding work for it made me, the customer, feel important and confident in my purchase.
