Default Re: Costa del Mar Howler 580G tortoise/green mirror

Yeah, I've figured out that I like to have three pair given my sensitive eyes. I could do two if this were one pair, with the other being my low-light amber Smiths... But my wife gave me a pair of Revo Guides with the "water lens" which is a gray/blue mirror, and for my copper-lenses shades my Smiths just look better on me than these.

I think I just like the style of Smiths better. Based on friends' opinions, as well as the "smith vs. Costa" thread on here, I think I'm in the minority...

FWIW, the Revos are awesome and their integrated leash system is awesome. Caveat Emptor on those: they scratch easier than other poly/plastic lenses I've had, and I'm SUPER careful with my optics, scratches are a huge pet peeve of mine
