    Default Recommendation on Polarized Sunglasses

    There used to be an advertizing link in this forum for polarized sunglasses but don't recall the name of the business. Supposed to be the best out there. Anyone care to recommend a good brand to spot fish and a possible web link?

    Thanks...

    for fishing alaska you have to try the cabela's TR3 fisherman glasses, sure you aren't the most stylished pearson out there but they are the bomb I used them the past two summers on a counting tower in bristol bay they worked on the bright days but also (this is the most improtant feature for most of alaska) they worked just as good on cloudy days and in low light situtaions I have a pair my self now love them. http://www.cabelas.com/cabelas/en/te...sses&noImage=0

    Default Sun Glasses

    Maui Jims are the probably the best, but be prepared to pay a couple of hundred bucks for them. I have the glasses with the rose colored, and polarized lenses. They work great for sunny and overcast days. Easy to spot fish, plus they protect your eyes from harmful UV rays.

    Default Nice

    I own the latest generation of REVO polarized wraps and they are worth the money. zero color distortion and the best protection with quality that I have seen only in Serengetti and some Maui Jim's. Nasa uses the same glass for the shuttle, used to have REVO make it for them... if it's good enough for the astronauts in space with no radiation protection.......

    In Florida I wore Maui Jims all the time.... rose or black lenses in a typhoon frame were great for me.

    Now they've changed the style a bit (I don't like the new Typhoon) and I can't get them up here, so I've found a pair of Costa Del Mars that I wear...

    both are great on the water.

    Smith Action-Optics for me. Their photochromic Clearwater Copper lenses can be worn from sun-up to sundown.

    And their Rx service is first class.

    Default Specific Suggestions

    Can anybody tell me their specific recommendations/experiences for polarized fishing glasses? "specific" meaning brand name, style, lense type, etc....other than whats already been posted.
    My vision is 20/20 so no Rx is necessary,
    Thank You

    i get mine at walmart or even at gas stations, i usually stash a pair in my rig, my canoe bag and carry the pair i like best that way if i lose or break a pair i got a back up. Whoever my fishing buddy might be is always obliged if they came without. cant go wrong for 10$ a pair either. i havent ever tried a pair of nice glasses so couldnt tell yah if theres that big ah difference in the cheapos or nice ones.

    My wife and I chose the Smith Action Optics Guides model with the Polarchromic Copper lenses. No complaints at all and they replaced mine with no questions when I broke the earpiece.

    3 Rivers has them here in Wasilla. You can look at them here http://www.smithoptics.com/Guides-Choice_86_60.html keep in mind you can get a combination of lenses and frames. I chose the black frames and my wife got the Tortoise frame both with Polarchromic Copper lenses.

    You can also do a search for a store, apparently there are 24 stores between Girdwood and Wasilla that carry them. Outdoors and More is another place listed.
