I like Costa but I haven’t tried Maui Jim or any of the other similar brands. Costa has a good warranty.

I got a pair of WileyX a few years ago and love them. Great customer service and warranty. I bought them on sale, polarized, and like them partly due to the dual purpose as a safety/PPE eyewear.

I have some WileyX prescription glasses that are unwearable. I have some Piranhas that are great for driving. I have another pair of WileyX that are for fishing and they are delaminating “due to exposure to the sun”! bang

I vote stay away from WileyX.

Costa Is next to try.

Anyone ever had the Amphibia shades? The fact that they float would be an advantage in my book since I've lost my last several pair in the lake recently. They look real bulky though. I've been hesitant to purchase for that reason.

I have amphibians for driving and Costas for fishing. Pretty much interchangeable

Costa 580p which are green for fishing w plastic lense.

Icicles for every day use, you can buy replacement lenses for $50, they easily pop in and out. Ive had the same frames since 2009.. He has a lot of sales, like black friday, july 4 etc, you can get lenses then for $30. I believe the person I email or call to order is the same person I met at a Nascar race in 2009 in a booth... Small company, good product. USA/Italy made he says.

I have been wearing Amphibia’s for the last couple of years. Still have the first pair I bought even after dropping them overboard a couple of times, glad they float. I am also an old fart and glad I am able to get bifocal lenses in them. I have another pair along with an extra pair of lenses on order right now.

I'm a big fan of Smith Action Optics. I really prefer them to Costa's. I've had both. Do a lot of sight fishing with the fly rod and they are tops in my book. I like the Amber lens which is great in all conditions and work well for me in the bass boat too.
