    Im not brand loyal but I also dont buy the cheapest polarized glasses either. My current ones have bi-focals for easier knot tying.

    the green lenses were designed for cloudy days and the blue for sunny days....

    green = amber lens

    blue = black lens

    I use to sell Costa, maui Jim, and Oakleys at Bass Pro.. :D

    I use a pair of Field and Stream glasses I got at Sams Club pretty cheap. Had a pair of Vuarnet glasses that broke, a pair I lost, a pair of Ray Bans my brothers dog ate, so I decided to go cheaper. Love them!
     
  17. Smith Optics. The same company that is well known for there snow/moto goggles. They are awesome and have a life time warrantee. I recently sent mine back becouse of a small scratch on the lense and the frames were worn. Got a brand new pair back! There is a good buddy of mine that carries them in Republic. Give me a holler if interested.

    I use a pair of Renegade glasses from WalMart. This is the third pair I've had because I lost the other two pairs. I like the way they fit my head and the polarization seems really good. Hfff can vouch for that.

    Maybe if I had a pair of expensive ones I'd take better care not to lose or break them. But I'm really hard on sunglasses and I'd just as soon buy 10 pairs of cheapies as I would one pair of expensive ones. 10 pairs of cheapies would last me a LONG time.
