Nobody has mentioned them yet, so I will, but take a look at Smiths (https://www.smithoptics.com/us/). Their ChromaPop lens have great clarity and let in a lot of natural color. I have two pairs that I use for fishing and they are extremely comfortable as well.

I have lots of Oakleys but prefer and wear Maui Jims. Costas are my back-up on the water

I wore Oakley's for 20+ years and have switched over to Costa's (both glass and plastic lenses) in the last year. I LOVE THE COSTA's! Especially the quality with the glass lenses. Lot's of deals on them on the web (Amazon, Sierra Trading...).

Smth is the highest quality most overlooked specs in my opinion.

Maui's = Noticable sharpest lens clarity of all the high end mfg's but glass is impossible to keep clean. Absolute oil, print, smudge magnets. Won't buy again. The Ferarri.... Very nice but not a daily driver....the ones I have are useless outside of being "driving glasses" to and from work.....

Costa's = Can't lose here...

Smith. = Very impressive in all aspects.....I easily put them on par with Costa's....lens technology is alpha level and the frames are high quality.....and every other jackwad doesn't have a pair.....

This is a little off subject but I hate it when I head to the deer stand for an evening hunt and realize I wore my prescription sunglasses. It always seems to get dark much earlier when I do.

No they're not equivalent to $200 dollar Costas but for 60 bucks (with free accident replacement) they're pretty good. I had some Oakleys and some Raybans in the past. The Oakleys had great durability in their lenses but their plastic frames were garbage. The RayBans (Aviators) were great. I had them for years, until I dropped them accidentally. I'd go for another high end pair but with the quality of the ShadyRays being as good as it is I'm not in any rush.

Costas on the water, Oakley the rest of the time.
