Cool Has anyone tried DriveWear Sunglasses for flying?

DriveWear (by Younger optics) makes sunglasses (prescription or non-prescription) that were originally designed for driving. Has anyone tried these for flying sailplanes and how have they done for increasing the visibility of your plane? They are polarized so it may not be possible to see the screen on your transmitter but they do change color depending on on sky and light conditions.

High contrast yellow-green in overcast conditions
Copper color for bright conditions behind the windshield of a car (most transition type glasses don't darken up inside of a car because they depend on UV light to change and car windows block UV light)
Dark reddish brown in bright outdoor light.

Check them out at www,drivewearlens.com

Please post a reply if you have tried them because I'm considering buying a pair to help with plane visibility.

Thanks in advance!
