I'm looking for an everyday work and pair... My main concern is I want a frame that breathes or vents preventing lenses from steaming up. I work in the construction field and I need something durable too(frame and lense)? other brands better?

I typically buy $20-40 glasses 2-3 pair a year because I'm so rough on them but I want to try a premium pair to see how long it takes before I destroy them.

They will destroy just as easily. U just getting better polarization of lens and better lens technology. The plastic will scratch. Glass Is heavy and cost even more. That being said I wear costa fantail and hey don't fog. They r not big frames though. The Zane looks good and has the vents

I have a pair of the fantail with the tortoise frames and the green lenses. I think they look good and work great as well

I have a pair of Harpoons that I wear everyday for the last 3 years. 580G in silver mirror. The Harpoons don't have a lot of rubber on the earpiece to degrade. I had 2 pair of Fathoms that the rubber was gone within a year.

If you go to their website you can actually group the frames by size.

I have the Fantail tortoise in 580g, great pair of sunglasses. They don't fog up and the glass doesn't scratch easily at all. I've had my pair a few months and there is not a single scratch on them, they literally look new. For around forty dollars the Strike King S11 are hard to beat.

580 G, best glasses I've ever looked through.. have had them three years. Couldn't tell much difference between their glass and their plastics lenses but never thought the plastics would hold up the way I treat stuff.
