Costa Del Mar Deep Blue. Tortoise frame with backwater green glass lenses. I will never go back to cheap sunglasses or plastic lenses. I do not know many folks who have a spare set of eyes laying around. Spend the money. Get 100% UV A, B, and C protection.

I also have some Maui Jim Titanium sports -- block the wind very well and are very nice sun glasses.
Which set of Maui Jim Titanium Sports did you end up with? They make three styles.

Ka'anapali
Kapalua
Wailea

Try Ocean waves, they will put your Rx in them and pretty good lens, lots of styles, I'm thinking of the goggles? ugly but effective. any feedback,

I have the Smith Slider Series glasses, and they work great for me. I also like the fact that you can change the lens from smoked for the sunlight to yellow for low light situations.

The Spy's or Dragon's are the best I have had, the Dragon's have great lenses real hard to scratch and polarized. Oakley's work OK but you have to treat them like a new born baby they break to easy. You can get a nice pair of Dragons for $60 last I looked that's almost 1/2 the Oakleys.

I bought us some Harley glasses. We have not tried them yet, but the bikers wear them and they withstand wind up to 120 mph. They are wrap around and are magnetized in the middle. Not sure how well they work, but we will give them a try. We also use safety glasses and order the amber colored lenses and they have worked well.

Dan , at 90 the glasses are imbedded in your face

I use Gaurd Dogs, love em!!!
