Costa Del Mar makes some very good glasses. I use them for fishing, boating and driving. I use the amber color in the green mirror lense. The are a glass lense that is scratch proof. Very good in all light conditions from mid day sun to clouds to dusk and dawn. Very good customer service if ever a problem. Lots of styles and lense options, RX too.

You cant go wrong withthe Costa's but...

Ive had two pair that I really did like far better.
The first were a pair of Hobie's. The second was a pair of Chillies that I bought in Bar Harbour Maine last year. Both were polarized. I still have the Chillies that I bought in maine for $9.99.
Both have had the polarization in the lense much like Costa'a, not coated on them. In my opinion, the Cost'a will be your best bet but the cost may deter you.
Stay clear of the Calcutta brand if you hit the salt water allot. they are good for about a few weeks until the polarization film starts to rub off.
Also, the Costa's block both types of UV rays that are harmful for your eyes....

Costa Del Mar

Been wearing them for years and what striperswiper said, they back them up. I've had to send several pairs back over the years to have the lens replaced because of scratches and they make the needed repairs or will replace them whether under warranty or not and they always call first before doing so.
Can't go wrong.

I've probably had most of the major brands. 3 stand out as being very good. As mentioned above, Costa's are very good, but I recently got a pair of Maui Jim's & they are hands down the best polarized lenses I have ever worn (but they were STUPID expensive). The other ones that I liked alot were a pair of polarized Ray Bans. The only problem with the ray Bans is the lenses seem to break very easily if the glasses are dropped.

I have had many good sunglasses including Jims and Dels and many other brands. I have either lost or broken them all. Now I loose and break cheap sunglasses (polarized of course) all the time. Besides, I love that song...so they won't even know my name.

I GOT A PAIR OF COSTA FATHOMS AND mp2 I LOVE THEM BOVE PLUS THEY GOT A LIFETIME WARRNTY AND THEY STAND BY IT :D
Yea right. :mad:

$34 to replace a templepiece on a < 2-year old $105 pair. (wonder how much the lenses would be). The replacement templepiece & the other started cracking. Said it was owner mistreatment.

To someone that has a 10 year old pair of Costas and a 25 year old pair of Wayfarers and a 30+ year old pair of Aviators. :mad: :mad:

Great optics & great fit, but I guess I outlived my "lifetime warranty" :(
