Sunglasses?

Recommended Posts

I'm looking to buy a good pair of polarized sunglasses for river/lake fishing. I just got back from flyfishing in Montana and found out first hand how valuable a good pair is. I want to try stay away from the price of something like Costa's if I can find something good cheaper. Thanks for any help!

Having stepped up to good glasses in the past couple years I like the H30's and love my Ocean Waves. IMO WalMart and quality don't belong in the same book.

I bought a pair of H3Os last year and I love them. I had a pair of cheap $20 sunglasses before that and I can tell the difference. For $100 they considerably cheaper than a lot of other brands, plus you get 3 lens types which actually do come in handy.

I ran cheapies for years not thinking there was much of a difference. I was wrong, when you spend near 150 days on the ice and water a season spending $100 or $200 on a good pair is a cheap investment.

I like the ability to quickly change lenses due to changing light conditions, but the Ocean Waves in Backwater green seem to cover most the bases. I carry both when Muskie fishing so I have 4 choices no matter what the conditions. I rearley even wear cheapies for work anymore, the eye strain by days end starts getting to me.

A little over a year ago I purchased a pair of Native sunglasses on sale. They were originally $130, but I got them half price in December. They are definitely a step up from the cheap $20 pairs I was using.

Take a look at Willey X. They are the best pair of polarized glasses I have ever owned. They run right around $80.00.

I wear prescription glasses and would like to find a pair of polarized glasses to put over my glasses. So far i've just used cheapos. Any recommendations? the other option i guess would be to get a good pair of sunglasses w/ my prescription - might be the way to go.

Depending how big your RX frames are, you may find a normal pair to fit over them. I wear H30 Tsunamis and Ocean Wave Nassua's over my RX.

My brother uses Native and they are nice. I am an Oakley fan no better glasses period. After you spend money on a good pair cheapos dont cut it no more, and you will take care of them cause they cost so much.

    • Anyone still at it?   not sure that i will get Isaac out anymore, will still ask these last few days.   Good luck everyone.
    • Haha, sounds like you have a good head on your shoulders and great perspective, Borch.  Plus, I think it's good to be upset about missing!  It motivates a guy to take more selective shots and make better shots.  My shot selection was ok, but my execution was not good.  I made a good shot at a stationary target, but the target was walking.  D-U-M, dumb!!!  Such is life!  Next year Morgan and I will shoot turkeys (as long as I can still get her out there).  
    • From what I read the idiot did not tell anybody....was asked to play in the World's and declined saying his wrists hurt so they made him go in and found the torn tendons...what a duffus.
    • It reminds me if the first year I took my son turkey hunting.  He had several close calls but didn't get a bird.  He was upset.  I said, "Why are you upset?  We got to hunt together for several days and had several exciting encounters.  If you shot one the first day we would have missed all that fun together"  He thought about it for a while and he smiled.  The older I get, the less its about the kill.  Reframing what I thought success was has added to my hunts.  Now, if I could get less upset when I miss a bird I'd have it all figured out.  
    • Excellent.  Nicely done.
    • You got it, Borch!  I was disappointed with how the season ended, but you're definitely right!  I also learned a trick this year- cards!  Morgan really enjoyed playing cards with me in the blind.  It was a good way to pass the time and we enjoyed it quite a bit.  We had a great season together and enjoyed it a ton!     That last encounter we had was really something!  I'm convinced the worst thing birds can do to a bowhunter is to come in to the deeks is stand there and stare.  I'd rather they hung up and didn't come in or did pretty much anything but that.  It makes it virtually impossible to get a bow drawn!  The turkey was at about 5 yards, because I knew we I needed one close for Morgan.  However, at five yards and staring directly in the direction of the blind, she was smart to not try to draw.  That dang bird stood there for two full minutes and didn't move a muscle.  Morgan had a smile from ear to ear and at one point told me "I was so excited and my heart was pounding so hard I thought I might die!"     It would have been a slam dunk with her crossbow, but she wanted to get one with a vertical bow.  I'm proud of her for sticking with it and she said "I'm just fine with not shooting one, Dad."  I'm glad she's ok with that.  I wish I was more ok with it...  but, that's hunting!  
    • Sounds like he is going to bring "fire" to the team haha.  Hoping he can come up with something to do with all the aging players who aren't living up to their contracts.     Also heard that Coyle played the last 2 months with torn ligaments in his wrists.  Going in for surgery.  Kind of an eye opener really, Coyle with torn wrist ligaments is better than anything they could've moved up that is healthy?  Uh oh....
    • Hey, it's all good. Morgan and you spending time together in the outdoors and getting a close encounter is what it's all about.     Sometimes the birds win and we simply run out of time.
