    For tinted one I really like the pair I got at our Stihl dealer. They have quite a few diffenent ones and I just went in and tried them on till I found a pair I liked. I wear them as sunglasses and when I need them for safety glasses it is for weedeating or cutting stuff. They fit really well, don't fog up, and have provided great protection.

    For clear one I haven't found a good pair so I can't help there.

    I like the 3m "Metalliks". They got a metal frame..

    That said, they all suck. I have a real problem with fogging them up, plus they almost seem to direct fine dust directly into my eye.!!

    I had this argument with management types: "How is it safer if im all fogged up and cant see?" ... "Just wear them" is the usual response

    At work we use something like a Crews Checkmate? tinted/clear. I'm not sure if that is the brand or not but the most comfortable saftey glasses I have worn and I have to wear them all day.

    Edit:
    The glasses are Gateway Safety-Star Lite models
