Default Any sunglasses recommendations?

Since all I've been doing so far this year is fly fishing I have discovered that fly fishing is kind of like bass fishing in that the better you can sight fish the better your chances are at catching a fish. I currently dont have any polorized sunglasses since the cheap pair I had broke and didnt seen to help to much. I have decided to get a good pair of sunglasses, I was wondering if you guys could recommend some so I have some options, maybe a high end expensive pair a mid ranged pair and a cheap good pair. That way I can dream about the high end pair and probably buy the mid ranged pair. I am color blind so color clearity the glasses give arent the most important feature I would like them more for depth and to see threw water glare.

On the cheap end of things: These are the ones I wear and am pretty happy with them, They cut thru glare very well: https://secure.chambermaster.com/sho...cts.jsp?id=202

Hope this helps. You may also want to check out this site: http://www.polarized.com/

* I have Smith sliders. Mine are called Mainlines, but they come in differant styles. All styles come w/ 3 differant color lenses (you switch them out) You have to buy the polorized seperatly.* I love em though. I also wear them skiing. The differant lenses are great for seeing snow definition. They sell them @ most sunglass, and sports shops. I bought mine from Galyan's (now Dick's Sports). Most styles are around $90. The polorized lenses were $30 or $40. If anyone is looking for a cheap pair, Wal-Mart has their own Solar Bat glasses. They're polorized ventilated, scratch resistant, and have a 2 year warranty (I'm looking at the box). They were just under $15. I bought them to keep in my tackle box. I've used them twice w/ no complaints, and I can't tell they're $15 glasses. Oh, and I won't feel so bad if I lose them (it happens).*

the polarized.com website had potential but it doesnt compare any of the glasses agaisnt each other which would have helped alot.

Hey Epic

I was a glasses wearer most of my life until I had lazer eye surgery and I couldnt wait to get real sunglasses...I had great luck with Action Optics...they have like 3 price ranges for different varieties...they were tough and made great lenses...I know they have some in the $60 to $70 range...they are made for fisherman and sold in most fly stores...they have a website at ActionOptics.com and no I dont work for them...I would probably still be wearing them if I wouldnt have bumped into my current pair that I found in Kaui...some really dark super polarized ocean fishing glasses made by Maui Jim...I bought them like 4 years ago and it is a miracle I havent lost them...I would be sick...I paid more for them than I ever thought I would for just a pair of sunglasses...but it was my souvenir on that trip...one of the best things I ever bought...like a "shower" for your eyes...I wish I would of had them or the Action Optics years ago...

I use Native sunglasses and have been happy with them so far. They are a 3 lens interchangable set: polarized brown, Orange lens for shooting or driving and a yellow lens for shooting for around 100 bucks. Also have a pair of Costal Del Mars that I bought 4 years ago that are very good, just not as stylish as the glasses you could by today for the same money.

zman I have heard someone mention action optics before, or I came across them looking on the web. So I will definately check them out.

CHRIS out of the 2 pairs you have which do you think is better, not style wise but visually.

Natives for me are a better fit and lighter. There the glasses I reach for when fishing, sight wise they see the same to me. One advantage to the Native glasses are they carry a lifetime warranty no matter if its your fault or theres which for sunglasses is awsome due to how many pairs we sit on or just flat out brake thius was a huge selling point for me. Send them 20 bucks they either repair or replace with a new pair. Keep an eye out for the Big 5* ads they have some very good deals on polarized glasses (name brands)all the time I picked up a second pair of natives from there for 30 bucks. You can't go wrong either way Costal Del Mars are a Quality pair of glasses as well. A good quality pair of glasses is a must so look around to what fits comfortable and buy the best pair available for your budget.
