    Eye protection

    So I used Goodr running sunglasses last year for mountain bike but they fogged up super bad in the Alabama heat. They are also extremely scratched up from trying to clean the sweat off them.

    I'd want to get a set with replaceable lens that are either kind of retro looking (like the Pit Vipers) or don't really look like sports glasses (like the Goodr) and don't fog up. I'd really like to stay under $80 if at all possible.

    I'd buy the Pit Vipers if they had replaceable lens.

    Ryders has pretty good anti fog tech, styles that look mor casual, and you should be able to find some at your price point on eBay and such. Bought a pair of the NIMBYs a few years back for $90 and have been pretty happy. The anti-fog works great and as Iím not a huge fan of the sporty look as well it does help with venting and not having a frame on top of the lenses definitely improved my field of vision.

    I saw some on Aliexpress (changable lens glasses) but I am a bit nervous about getting that kind of thing from Aliexpress.

    Honestly, I would stay away from it. I did order a set of Oakley Jawbreaker knock offs from them to wear while road cycling but they ship from China. I did have a bad experience recently while buying from a Chinese website. I purchased a dog nail trimmer from a website and I didn't realize they ship from China. It took 30 days to arrive but that's not the problem. My credit card info was hacked (or shared) and someone tried to use my info to buy some kind of Chinese penis enlarging service. My bank declined it instantly but I still had to get a new card.

    I didn't have this experience when I bought from Aliexpress. However, I'm now staying away from any website that sells and ships from China. I believe you can filter to find goods in the states, but I still don't trust their website.

    I've had good experience with my Tifosi Davos. Under $70 on most sites.

    Not really completely in love with the style but if they work they work. So I will keep them in mind as an option. Thanks.

    I have bought a fair few audio things from Aliexpress without a problem. I am more worried about what the lens are made from then any credit card thief. I don't want a material that would shatter in a way that could do major damage to my eye.

    I guess I could get a pair (or two) and try impact testing them just to find out. They are cheap enough. Edit: I am going to try this out. Just saw a video on Oakley's impact testing and I have done impact testing before. I could do it well enough for me to feel comfortable or not with them.
