I haven't found a pair I'm happy with yet.

Depends. I have a pair of Rudy Project Kerosene's, as well as Briko Sprinters. The Kerosene's are great because they're fantastically adjustable. Work well with a helmet in controlling how much wind hits your eyes.

On hot, super sweaty days, I tend to prefer the Briko's. They're lighter, and the lens is further away from the face - less sweat splatter. And extra style points for the bug-eye factor.
Rudy Project Skeey w/Rx insert....excellent IMO. nmroadmeister

For the past few years I used Smith Sliders, but after some quality issues with the frames/lenses, I recently decided to give the Rudy Project line a try. I got the Rudy Project Rydon's. These are great. Excellent fit, great lenses, and they look pretty cool. Plus they have many options for different colored lenses as replacements.

They are the litest glasses I have ever used, very comfortable, and the lenses are easy to change. I like the look and don't even notice them most of the time I wear them.

I'm not comfortable wearing sunglasses on or off the bike. Just never wear them, except when I'm sailing and the glare off the water is unbearable. Even though I have contacts, I've never had a problem with the wind.

I got the red Mainlines for $50 on Colorado Cyclist about 18 months ago. The other colors go for $100. The only time I wear them is on the bike, so the color's not a big issue. The lenses are better than average, they fit great, and they don't fog much, despite the fact that my head tends to run hot. What was the question? ;-)

The leather side flaps prevent distracting reflections on the inside of the lens, and the (supply the right word for the part that goes around one's ear here) wrap all the way around my ears, and have stayed on when I've crashed. The negatives? They don't have the sex appeal of the Oakleys, unless your significant other digs the Edmund Hillary type.....
Ditto on the Smith Voodoo sliders. nmJuanmoretime

So go without them. I really can;t understand what for they are needed.

My team is sponsored by Rudy Project (along with everyone else, it seems!). I use the Ekynox and the Rydon. The Ekynox prevent better coverage against the wind, but the Rydon are lighter.

I also have a pair of Briko Gripper glasses. They are super casual/sport glasses. They look great in the car, and I like them on the bike as well. Very light, and a very snug fit.
