    Glasses that reach my ears?

    I'm 6'6", size 8 hat(63 metric).
    Looking for glasses, all of the usual suspects have the bend in the temple piece 1/2"-1" in front of my ear.
    Any companies/product lines that go larger ?
    All's well that ends.

    I tried on a pair of Under Armour "Prevail" sunglasses & they fit nice. Hard to find, but I think im going to invest in a pair.

    I use Oakley Flak Jacket XLJ glasses - straight temples with grippy rubber. First glasses I've used that don't slide down on sweaty downhills.

    Buy stuff that doesn't bend downwards. I'm using this:

    Agreed, was solving the wrong problem. Got Oakley Tightropes, I'm fine with metal, but they do come in CF.
    Thanks for the help.

    I thought about those...I'd like to try them on before I order a pair though.

    Another vote for the flak jackets. No matter how much I sweat, they never slide down.

    Check oakley vault for a great deal on them, I snatched a pair for like 65 bucks.
