DH lost his ancient pair in Munich over the holidays. I am supposed to pick up a pair for him while I'm in the US (slightly cheaper?), but when I went to REI the first time I was overwhelmed by the myriad of types, and the kids were at the end of their shopping tolerance. Does anyone have a particular favorite brand/style? I have no idea if he cares for the type that let you use a smart phone. I think he is looking for a pair that are not super bulky, will fit into a coat pocket, and are good for everyday wear.
