    Only scratches on chris’s stuff are caused by his friends like me and I haven’t touched his sunglasses.

    As someone who's never spent more than $15.00 on a pair of sunglasses, I'm curious what makes a pair worth this much. Personally, I would end up sitting on them or losing them.

    I've got two pairs, one for fishing and one for driving. I will say your mindset is different when you buy an expensive pair of glasses. You are more aware of, don't misplace and in general take good care of them. I've had my fishing pair for over 10 years and they are still top notch.

    the quality is in the "eye" of the beholder.

    these are glass lenses that have clarity close to non, they actually really only compete with costa 580G lenses, which could be arguable which is better. comes to style in my opinion of which is better of these two.

    you can't explain it to someone, best thing to do is wear a pair (not mine) for a day our two and put back you 15.00 ones. if you don't see a difference or care then don't spend the money. If you leave your gales somewhere to sit on these aren't for you, they end up back in a case and if there is no case they stay on your face. clarity is the investment. and my favorite color is clear!

    I do Dave!!


    Steve....I can’t say for sure if is worth someone spending this coin on shades....but in your case...I think it is worth getting a glass polorized lense pair.

    You are on the water a ton and the reduction of eye fatigue will surprise you. Along with how great the clarity is.

    I would let the fam know what Papa Elkfins wants for Father’s Day!

    Totally agree with Hookers summation above.

    Personally my eyes are sensitive to bright light and having quality shades on when driving on an the water is a must for me. Maui Jims ( and those costas (2nd place IMO)) have excellent clarity and color and scratch resistence. I had my last pair of Peahi's for eight years and they didnt have a scratch on them until I accidentally stepped on them. Now I roll the Mavericks for driving and the World Cups Marlins on the boat. The World cups wrap great and reduce all light from the side and are super lightweight. Like anything...You get what ya pay for!

    Good deal above on the Kanaio's

    Agree with most. Polarized glass lenses are well worth the $$$$$. You breathe on a plastic lens and it seems to scratch, glass lenses you can n abuse more. If you pay $$$$ for a good pair, you will take care of them. Buy a good sunglass strap. I like gators, they are either on my eyes or around my neck.
