Mid-priced Sunglasses

20 posts in this topic

My mom would like to get some polarized sunglasses for my dad for his birthday. She'd like to spend $50-$100. Any suggestions?

I wish I could help you, but I stay with the cheapies due to the fact that I either loose them or break em.

I don't even know what is sold in that price range? :-) The $12 - $15 igogs or fisheyes at gander I think work great.

The only thing I could recommend is to see if Costa Del Mar makes something in that price range. May be a bit high end...but they could make something $75 - $100...

I agree with the cheaper ones. I don't know how many times I've lost or broken expensive sunglasses. I bought a cheap gas station pair and haven't been able to get rid of them for 4 years now!

I agree with the Costa Del Mars. I've used them and they are nice.

You might want to check out Bolle sunglasses as they have some models with nice polarized lenses. You'll find them online in your price range, and I've had good luck with them.

I've got Costa del Mars and they are great. I don't think she's looking to spend quite that much.

One thing I have noticed since I've stepped up to good glasses, I am much more careful with them.

I'm a cheap guy too.

I have a brand new pair of Titanium Maui Jims sitting here that I've never worn due to the fact that I know I'll trash them.

I was a cheap sunglasses user because I was always concerned with breaking them, but now that I have a pair of Costas I'm in the same boat as RW. I'm very careful with them.

I second this. I found a nice pair of Bolle polarized for just under $100.

I have H20 Optics glasses- they have been great and I think were around $50. Good quality lenses and construction and they handle a beating. Try a search for them and they should come up. Good luck.

Check sierra trading post online. Many of the brands mentioned already are available at significant savings. You can find a real good pair in the price range you're looking for.

Natives were about the only brand I could find that would fit my big head without digging into the sides. AND - they have interchangeable lenses....which is nice.

I ordered a set from REI for $50. Not sure if they have them anymore....they retail most places for about 120 bones or more depending on model.

I had a pair of PolarEyes and you can get them at Cabelas. They are on the lower end of your price range but they are very nice. I lost my pair and I upgraded to Oakleys. I don't know why but I felt like a change. My current pair fits me like a glove, thats why oakleys are nice. lots of different shapes and sizes.

    • Trump already signalling willingness to work with Democrats in order to bypass House conservatives....     http://www.nbcbayarea.com/news/national-international/Trump-Attacks-Conservative-Lawmakers-Over-Health-Bill-417117223.html?_osource=SocialFlowTwt_BAYBrand   So now we have a supposedly extreme right-leaning Republican president cozying up to Democrats?   What would Uncle Ben think?....            
    • In order to determine which direction to go with healthcare, one fundamental question must be answered.  If an American walks in to a hospital with a sick child or with some sickness themselves and has a treatable medical condition, should a provider have a right to refuse service to that person or their child based on ability to pay?  We cannot have a true free market system unless we are truly callous enough to turn poor people away at the door.  I'm not there.
    • Ice is good in some areas of main lake but bad in areas with moving water / springs. All resort / outfitter access's are closed to vehicles but some are open to four-wheelers. side by sides, and snowmobiles including Morris Point, Long Point, Dales's and Arnesen's, which still has fish houses available as well.  As always, use a resort or outfitter road for safety as they are monitored daily.  Walleye bite has been good with many keepers among smaller fish. Fish are aggressive and having a flasher is helpful.  Jigging spoon tipped with minnow head or tail and a dead stick with a plain hook or small ice jig and minnow are doing good.  Key depth  17-33 ft.  Best colors glow pink/red and gold. Tip up fishing for pike on fire.  Many flags of northern pike in back bays and reefs.
      Rainy River spring fishing is ON!  The Rainy River is open all the way to Wheeler's Point. Birchdale, Frontier, Vidas, and Timbermill landings are open to all boats. Wheeler's Point will be open in a day or so.  Walleye fishing has been excellent. Many eater walleyes so far with a few monsters. Right now a 1/2 - 3/4 ounce jig is enough to get to the bottom while tipped with 1 or 2 frozen shiners. Pink, orange and gold are hot colors. Many sturgeon being boated as well.     Up at the NW Angle, ice conditions are unstable as current areas are opening up quickly.  Travel with caution. Many resorts using airboats at this point.  Fish houses on LOW can stay on ice through March, walleyes/saugers through April 14th.  Pike and crappies open all year for LOW MN.  
    • I loved BBs post game the other nite after the canucks game,  he nailed it.  Guys got to step it up and play, outside of granny and staal, the rest look like they just started playing.  Lack luster for sure.  Im still hoping they come out and play like I know they are capable of but not looking good
    • This is what I have so far and I think I'll be changing A. Hackney B. KVD C. Ehrler D. Howell E. Lucas   I don't feel confidence about any of them except KVD haha Well I already made a switched and put Dafoe in bucket A for Hackney.
    •   I asked the same thing about a Month ago...must be a contract/money issue...we don't spend money foolishly 
    • Live Target for me. Tried a Lunkerhunt and it kept sinking and holding water.
    • Oh, the hat?  Correct, I was using clone stamp to build the hat.  Of all the problems with my photoshopped images, your issue is with the hat?  I thought the crude cutting and pasting was bad enough that nobody would notice the hat.      Still, you're a massive tool and I have accepted your challenge to do it better.
