Ok I am kinda sick of buying cheap sunglasses and Im looking at buying a nice pair. I want to know what glasses you guys are wearing and what you think about them. I am seriously looking at the Oakley Straight Jackets which are polarized(obviously) and are fishing specific. They have a frame around the lenses, lightweight, and have rubber on the sides that hold to your head well. Looks like I could find a pair for 180 which comes with a one year warranty. I am looking to spend around 100-200? Let me know what you think.
Thanks

I have some Maui jims which are great, and some cheapies that you can tell are cheapies. I have been looking for a new pair, and I just got an email from BassPro that Costa Delmar has the 580P lens. Looks good. My next pair will be some Costas.

The only thing I have against Oakleys is that those rubber "ear socks" will swell and split and then you have to buy the whole frame sides to replace them. They won't just sell you the "socks".

I'm currently wearing a pair of these for fishing:

My buddy has oakley polarized and they look great. I just use strike king polarized glasses and they work just the same. Tried his on last time we were out, i noticed no diffrence other than price.
Monsta White by Strike King - $25
Antix by Oakley - $230

Never heard anyone complain about the quality of Costas. For me, it's all about comfort, regardless of price. I've had some cheapos for years that fit good that I still wear and I've worn some glass lens Maui Jims that over the course of the day start to hurt from the added weight on my nose.

Doesn't help that my head is the size of a 5 gallon bucket. I'd do your best to buy them in person and try them on before buying them online.

I have a pair of polarized sunglasses from Mountain Equipment Co-Op (my second pair actually). They are a great pair of glasses for $80.

Just got my LL Bean polarized bi-focal sunglasses in the mail and they are awesome.

My days of spending more than $100 on sunglasses have been over for awhile!! :roll:

When I have my contacts in I wear either my Oakley Juliet frames with black polarized lenses or, when fishing under cloudy skies, my Bolle Limit frames in brown polarized lenses. Both frames fit me very well and will wear all day long with out any discomfort.

My prescription sunglasses are Ray Ban modified aviators with black polarized lenses. They are metal framed as well and bend some, so it is a little more work to keep them tuned; but not bad really.

All three manufacturers have parts readily available if you loose a nose piece or something. I also wear Ray Ban and Oakley non-shaded prescription lenses. Having had to wear glasses my whole life I can tell you the better the glasses the more expensive they are. Cheap glasses are for people who are gluttons for punishment! :mrgreen:

All of my glasses also meet or exceed ANSI Z87.1 testing standards.

Oakley and Ray Ban = $300 give or take
Bolle = $150

Makes me even madder about paying for the ray-ban's, then a week later watching them dive into the 900' silver lake... :evil:
