Costa's for fishing, but they never leave the case until i'm on the boat. too expensive to wear for social purposes. Ray bans and the new arnette's with the interchangeable arms are great. cheap and durable. if you need a nice pair for work (i work in the city) highly recommend going to sunglass hut. While I always try to support a surf shop, they have the nice brands, and after 1 year, you can turn your pair in and buy a new pair 1/2 off. not a bad deal to keep things fresh.
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 had my Knockarounds for about 2 years, they are lightweight and really nice for the price. My wife has had hers for about the same with no problems. Sick colors, customs, nice lenses. Can't beat it for the price.
