Strike King S11 if you are cheap.

Costa 580G if you got deep pockets

Oakley Prism Deep Water if you played sports in high school.

Been wearing the same style maui jim 159-02 (discontinued) since 1997. Glass lenses, and i have to keep a running check on eBay to keep my backup's in the safe available.. I like wrap around for no rear glare, but used cost me 50-80 bucks. Have real sensitive eye's, can't go out without sunglasses. They are real nice, if you wear prescriptions get on Zenni. Best price for sunglasses with a Rx.

Check out Amphibia. Great glasses and for old guys like me you can get them with built in readers. I like the HydraFoil style because of the large side frames that really block out all of the sun especially when sight fishing.
And they float.

I've always bought cheap polarized sunglasses but after picking up a pair of Costa 580G I won't be going back.

I've been wearing kaenon for over 15 years. I have 3 pair. High vis yellow which is about a 30-33 percent light transmission for cloudy and early morning, the c28 which is copper and a 28 percent transmission, good all around lens. Also have a pair of c12, copper 12 percent transmission and they are best in really clear water, super bright days and no wind

Agree with SWH on Strike King and Costas. Recommend an Amber or maybe copper lens for bed fishing work. I like Smith Optics as well for bass sight fishing and bonefish/redfishing, their Chromapop lenses are the deal as far as target separation unless its a superbright day and then they gather a bit too much light.

Bought some of them two weeks ago. Just bought another pair of Gargoyles today. The Oakleys are not even close to these. The Oakleys are too dark, or something. I am not sure what I don’t like about them. But I think they’ll be yard mowing glasses or something.
