They can do that because they only sell the brands their parent company owns. They're basically still making 70% of the sale price in profit even when they sell you a pair half off.
Sea specs for surfing and anything that doesn't let sun in from the sides as long as they are polarized. try on a bunch and chances are even if you buy local, other than supporting the surf industry ( which we are all invested in ) the mega maker gets most of the profit.
As far as polarization goes- I got pair from west marine for 40bucks - the lens where far superior to other 100 glasses... I got ones with the amber color lens- I have never seen so much better when fishing!!! Even compared to my friends expensive big fishing name brand sunglasses! The company is called sunbelt -or S4. The ones I got a few years ago where stylish- but have not looked since
I don't like to pay alot cause I break or lose them.
Could one of you guys spell check my post?? It's hard to tipe on this phone.... Plus I'm mot as educated
I've been wearing a pair of Optic Nerve sunglasses for the past 6 years. They dont scratch and really good filtering. Wrap around. I bought them at a bicylce shop. $50. Totally worth it.
Has anybody tried out the knockaround sunglasses?
Go to Oakley vault get them cheap.
Persol. Hand made in italy by old men with tiny tools drinking cappucinos. Glass polarized lenses. Outstanding quality and they didn't sell out to Luxottica, which is a huge evil company.
I was out a few weeks ago. It was dumpy and steep, kind of stormy. There was a guy out in sun goggles that kept getting his sh*t packed on the drop. Every time I saw him do it, I would sing to myself "LET THE GOGGLES HIT THE FLOOR LET THE GOGGLES HIT THE FLOOR"
