Brown. I was always into gray/ND for neutral filtering, but when I tried brown for the first time, at first I was all like “eww”, but it grew on me very fast. Almost like lighting everything with a WW light.

I like black/dark grey.

I also like the looks of mirror/silver ones, but I've never owned any.

I voted brown but it could as well be yellow/gold.

As Lightbringer puts it, it seems the sun is always shining whatever the weather.

It also makes for beautiful skies. Yellow filter is a classic for B&W photography. It increases the contrast between blue sky and clouds. Add to that polarizing and you are seeing postcards everyday. Cool

Since it's gonna be kinda mix sun and clouds next week or so, I'll grab the yellow ones.

If it's sunny all day, then I usually go for either the blue ones or the Brown/Amber depending on my mood.laughing

Brown, graduated, photochromic, non-polarized as some car displays disappear with them.

Can’t participate in the poll, because these are my sunglasses

I am changing my tint daily, to switch things up. Quality is good, they are not Oakleys, but still. makes life more interesting. people don’t think I use the same glasses all the time.

In theory black/neutral grey. But I found some aviator sunglasses at the side of the road with a blue/mirror color on the outside, but the view isn’t too blue. I don’t know how that works.

Yellow looks terrific, in my opinion. That is not so universal, but amazing

My vote is Brown or Amber because of how it makes colors so vibrant. Since they don’t block too much light and increase contrast I can get away with using them on those cloudy days when it’s still bright and into dusk/dawn. The color contrast reason transfers over to my love for 4000K tint in LEDs!

As neutral grey as possible for me – I’m a geologist, colour of rocks is pretty important when field mapping.

Does anyone use minus green filters on their glasses? Wouldn’t that be sweet.

My driving sunglasses are a pair of old Nikons from the 1990’s. Not pink, but “rose” colored. They cut out blue light very effectively. Eyes adjust pretty quickly once on. These aren’t polarized, but do an effective job at cutting glare. What I like about them is that they work well in bright sunlight as well as near dusk when the setting sun can still challenge your eyes. Excellent on bright but cloudy days, too. I have them with aviator style black high tensile strength nylon frames and also in rounded metal frames:

I use and voted for green. But it’s not the green pictured here. Thats an excessively green novelty glass. Im talking about the very light green polarized tint that you have to turn in a specific angle to notice the green. That is the sweetest tint I’ve seen for sunny and lush flowery outdoors. Everything pops. Considering how much love rosy light, this befuddles me.

I’ve been really pleased with my Jackson Nemesis polarized sunglasses. They’re gray, but somehow they make reds and yellows pop, as if they were brown tint. Great clarity and contrast, and safety glasses to boot. Got ‘em on Amazon from Kleenguard. Most of the listings on Amazon are for non-polarized ones, but for driving I always want polarized.
