Night glasses

I was wondering what color eye protection people wear after dark, clear or yellow? i have always used yellow because it seems to cut down the oncoming traffic headlight glare.

I own both and have found the best pairs to be the remmington or maybe they are winchester shooting glasses from walmart. $4.95 a pair so i dont feel bad about throwing them away when i scatch them. I tend to favor the yellow ones though it seems like they make everything brighter especially at dusk. Now if Costa del mar would ever make clear lenses out of their 580 glass id be all over it.

I prefer yellow at dusk and through the night as well. Ive ridden with clear, and the oncoming traffics' headlights drive me nuts.

I went from clear to yellow at night. Since i've gone to yellow, i haven't went back to clear. I like the look a lot better. Really helps with the glares from the lights
