Default Best driving sunglasses

With all the driving that is done on this forum, I was wondering what kind of sunglasses everyone uses for those bright sunny cruising days - like there would be any other kind of day to take out your vette??

I personally prefer my Oakley FLAK JACKET XLJ.

I was using my Flak Jackets but wanted something different for the Vette. I got a pair of Persols that I wear now, similar to Steve McQueens in LeMans.

Best driving glasses?

Would this not be subjective? Not sure there is a "right" answer.

I have some non-polarized serengettis, but stopped using them years ago. The only sunglasses I use are polarized and usually the best optics I can find.

Maui Jim or Costa del Mar. Both have superior lense technology.
Costa's if I'm going fishing, though

Can you post a link to the competition in which they were awarded that honor?
Thanks in advance.

I have a pair of Maui Jims that are almost 20 years old that I keep in the Vette now.
I also have a pair of Ray Bans that I keep in the Daily Driver that are an excellent less expensive alternative.

Maui Jim Ho'okipa Readers for me...have a 1.50 reading lens so I don't have to carry my reading glasses while I am out and about.

Maui Jims and you never pay over $80 at Costco. I like the metal, spring loaded frames with amber glass lenses.
