I have misplaced/lost my sunglasses, they were $150 on sale Maui Jim.
If I am going to keep losing them I would prefer to spend less.

I use Suncloud Warrant sunglasses. They cost around $50 bucks. They cover my eyes well and don't allow much light in the rims. I don't have experience with the high end glasses to make a comparison though.

I have no affiliation with this company, but Blobfishing.com makes some affordable, acceptably stylish, polarized glasses.

Sierra Trading Post usually has good deals on Costa stuff.

I bought my glasses at an Oakley outlet for a ridiculously good price.

It's super hard to beat the deals they have on older Costa models.

They're not the cheapest for sure, but check out the Smith ChromaPops. Those things are *incredible* out on the water. X-ray vision incredible.

Smith ChromaPops and they have excellent lenses. If you want to spend less, try the regular (not ChromaPop) glasses with polarized lenses. Great lenses for the $$.

Smith Chromapops here too. have a keeper so they don't fall in water and when not using go back in case.

Go to Wal-Marts and get ya a pair. Unless you sight fish, then Smiths are hard to beat for the $$. Orvis brand are good too. Get online and find a deal. Get glass!!!

Smith Optics is a good call. What I am "seeing" is that it seems like Costa's layers have gotten too thick, and that degrades sharpness. It also adds weight to the lenses (hence the complaints about weight on larger lensed shades). I do get pro deals from Smith (full disclosure), but I do wish they had more lens options. +1 Smith!

Smith's Chief frame with brown lenses and 2.5 correction for help with close-up vision. Picked it up from FW Cabelas bargain cave (probably a return) for about half the retail price.
