So I just lost my second pair of Costa’s. This time fly fishing in Colorado. So no more 200 dollar sunglasses for me. What are some under 50 dollar alternatives?

Fun N Sun Carries Bomber sunglasses that aren't too bad. I think they're 50-70 bucks and they float. I these take instead of my costas when I'm going somewhere that I'm likely to break/lose my sunglasses.


Thats my money fish

Shady Rays, they may not last long, but they start out exceptional. Plus you get a free pair to claim if they break or get lost. Mine were great until they got a scratch mid lens.

I have some Typhoon Mariner II sunglasses that have served me well as inexpensive backups to my prescription Costas.

For that money you can buy Costas.

I recently bought 480 glass Cabalittos for $74 with free shipping. I like them because they have no foam on the earpieces. My last pair lasted 12 years till I lost them.

Cheap and costas dont go together for a reason. U wont find a cheap pair of glasses that will function like a pair of costas. You want to spend $70 get on step and cheap like was posted earlier.

But if I was buying good glasses that dont break the bank I'd buy the Strike King S11 lenses glasses. About $40 I think and pretty good glasses.

$20 polarized PUGS. If they get a scratch I pitch them and get another pair.

You can find some good deals on both kaenon and Costas if you look around enough. Best cheap pair I've ever got was a pair or glass lens Magellan's from academy
