    Im looking for suggestions for a new pair of safety glasses for work (automotive dealership tech). Currently I just use a pair of UVEX brand glasses but they are not that comfortable to wear all day everyday.

    Looking for something without tinted lenses, and with out a full frame.

    So what do you all suggest/wear. pictures would be nice.

    I got the Harley Davidson ones from grainger for 15.. The ones I have are exactly what you don't want.. Tinted lenses, full frame.. But I can speak of their quality.. I've used the same pair for two years and they're comfortable and can take the abuse.. And the pair before my current lasted 3 years

    Look at a pair called Nemesis. I wear them all day for work and all the time for sunglasses. They have different lenses for them from clear to dark tinted.

    +1. I recently purchased Dewalt DPG54-2C Protector safety glasses from Amazon which come in tinted and non-tinted. They're comfortable and well built (Radians is the OEM). :)

    Revision Sawflys: http://www.revisionmilitary.com/product/sawfly/
    ESS ICE: http://www.esseyepro.com/ICE-2X-Issue-Kit_294_detail.html

    When I first entered the Army the Revisions were issued to me and in fact I still wear them. Simple, durable enough said.
    I also have a pair of ESS ICEs that were given to me from a supply personnel. I haven't worn them yet but they look nice. Both pairs offer exchangeable lenses so that you can wear whatever color you want and both offer ballistic protection to meet army standards for wear.

    For a auto shop, im going to guess that they cannot be tinted due to risk of injury
