I have Oakley's. But I see lots of Costa's out there. What's your opinion on Costa's or Oakley.

I have both and I find myself reaching for my Costa's more often than my Oakley's. Although, I wear my Oakley's when it's cloudy because they have gray lenses. I feel like the Costa's are better quality.

They're both good. Depends on the lens type, but I really like my Oakley KVD'S with the shallow water polarized lens for low light conditions.

Never tried Costa, but I've been satisfied with oakley for years.

the costa glass lenses can't be beat really. The oakley prizm fishing lense is about the only lense worth it for oakley IMO. If they are strictly for fishing, I would go Costa or maui jims....if you are using them for driving and other stuff than the Oakley lenses may be a better fit for ya.

580g costa is best lense I have used. Worn oakleys for years, Wiley X and off brand. The glass is actually the most scratch resistant of any of the lense materials. Not the best if u happen to drop them on something hard but they don't get worn out like the plastic stuff

What does the shallow water prize look like? I guess I've never seen these?

I use Oakley for non-polarized applications like golf and cycling. I wear Maui Jim's on the water. Never had a pair of Costa's, but as often as I loose/break glasses they will be the next on the list.

Yep^^^ if you haven't seen the new Prizm tech you need to check it out. Plus you get all of the actual protection to your eyes that glass will never provide.

I tried Oakley and won't again. Replaced the lens after 2 months and those didn't last. Been wearing Costa's for years and never had a problem with them scratching. The rubber nose piece has been an issue but a touch of super glue fixes that. I use a lot of sunblock on my nose and that's why I have had issues but I knew that would happen. No big deal.

Costa has frames that fit my equator size head much better than Oakley. I have had Oakley's in the past, no real problems, but for on the water applications, I like the Costa's much better.
