Default Re: Polarized Sun Glasses question

My polarized prescription glasses from Costco have worked well for me. I use them mostly for driving, but I get funny looks when I'm wearing them as I fish at dawn or during rain showers. If I was able to fish more often I'd probably add a brown/amber set to the gray ones. Different colors can be better suited for different conditions.

I've been considering bifocals so I can tye knots, but I haven't gone their yet. Of course I'm usually tying 12lb mono, so I might actually need bifocals if I'm tying tiny tippets & leaders.

My last few pairs have all been Oakley with the most recent, Fives Squared with Fishing specific lenses. Never had a problem with any of them, New smiths are on order though....

They're a couple years old, so the frames have probably been updated. Basically, you can put tinted, polarized frames in any frame at Costco. These were the only non-aviator type sunglasses when I went in. However, recently I have seen a greater selection.
