I have a pair of Oakley Flaks right now that are polarized. I was thinking about trying Costas but didn't know if it was worth the purchase and if I'd see a difference. Mainly fish ponds and small lakes.

Costas are well worth the money in my opinion.

If you want to try a pair without breaking the bank, check here often. They are a liquidator for many brands & inventory changes often. Oakley's, Kaenon & Costa were all available today. Not every frame - not every lens. But if you find something you like, you save tons. They liquidate fishing also, but only high end fly fishing gear.

^^ yeah that website mentioned helped me out last year! Didn't exactly get the frame "color" I wanted but I did get the sunglass "style" and "lens" color!! They were Costa glass so usually $260 and I paid like $155 brand new still in box and all. I've had 3 pairs of Costa's and really like them!

As far as comparing plastic polarized you won't see to much of a difference between Costa and Oakley. If you want glass then go Costa but expect to pay up.I've owned and sold both brands. I prefer oakley myself. I have a small head and most Costas still fit to tight for me. I would go somewhere that sells many brands and try a few on in different styles.Maui Jim,Wiley X, Amphibia,Spy all make good glasses. It's all preference with these products anymore.

I like the way my Oakleys fit but I guess the question is, is there a polarity upgrade? I want to get the best option for cutting through glare etc. If it's just a matter of switching out the lenses, I'll do that. Someone suggested "shallow blue", a google search didn't show those as an option though.

I like the flak jackets.I just started using these http://www.walleva.com/ in the frames a few years ago.there actually good but scratch kinda easy.
I won't buy expensive shades anymore cuz I tend to loose them

I've owned Oakleys, Kaenon, and the last year have been wearing Costa 580g green mirror. The glass is a little heavier, but the 580g Costas are far superior, imo, than other polarized glasses. The clarity is unreal!

Been wearing flak jackets for the last 5 years. They work well for me.

Completely agree, I've had Mauis, Oakleys and Costa's
All are good but Costa's are better of them to me
