Maui Jim’s. I would stay away from any that have the rubberized stuff on the frames. SunScreen gets them. Make sure you get a pair where the frames fit you.

I've got Wiley X prescription sunglasses, wear them fishing. They work great in the sun as well, seeing things in the water up shallow and since they are prescription, knot tying as well. I don't wear them running down the lake, I have another pair of cheaper sunglasses for that, the Wiley's want to slide up my nose and get up against my eyelashes. That feels kind of wierd.

Another vote for Maui Jim’s! Great quality and the polarized film is thicker most of the others. I’ve had the same pair for over 15 years.

Buy 3 $100 ones, I have had the high and low dollar ones and they all get scratched or lost.

You can get some good Oakley deals either online or at the Oakley store. I bought a pair of Oakley Holbrook and my wife got a pair 1/2 off at the same time total was just over $300.

I bought large lens Maui Jims about 18 years ago, for $135.00! I'd still be fishing in them, if I hadn't lost them a year ago. I have another, smaller pair for everyday. When I lost my originals, I found out that a direct replacement would be near $300, so I bought Shady Ray's with polarized plastic lenses, for about $60.00. Not even in the same universe! When they crumble(won't be long), I'll bite the bullet and buy more Maui Jims. Make sure they fit well, and don't buy sunglasses at an indoor store. You need to walk out in the sun and evaluate them. I bought my second set of Maui Jims at an indoor mall. Mistake! IslandJim

I won a pair of Bajio’s, they are very good glasses, every bit as good as any of my Costa's.

I have two pair of Maui Jims , really like them ---only problem is with them fogging up while wearing my UV buff . I decided to try some WileyX --- a version that supposedly blocks out dust --has a soft foam around the lens , they were also supposed to help with the fogging issue --- no luck , they fogged up worse .
Several years ago , I had a pair of my Maui Jims slip off my face while drop shotting --- I had pulled out my senko to remove some weeds from it ---off they went straight into the water ( 1 foot vis) --- I quickly shoved my rod into the water as deep as I could and in the direction I though they went ---slowly pulled the rod out and the glasses were on the second to last guide with one side kinda pinned back --- they are now my lucky maui Jims

Any sunglasses will fog up with hot breath from a buff going on them.
