I had cheap ones from Gander or Cabelas. Bought a set of Smiths polarchromatics. Love them. Also broke them, 4 years old, Smith will give me 60% discount on a new pair. They are very clear and just like stated above, you do keep good track of them.

Thanks for sharing this info.

I'll have to give it some serious thought as I fish over 150 days per year when you include boat(yak) and ice fishing.

And my eyes are getting worse over time, not better.

Yeah man, you're on the water that much, do yourself a favor and get some good quality shades...

Thanks for all of the feedback. I'm currently on my 3rd pair of Maui Jim's and they have all been great and lasted for 3+ years. I was just looking for a pair that if I did loose/break while on the stream wouldn't set me back a couple hundred bucks. I think that I'm going to give the Sungait ones I linked to in my initial post a try based on the number of positive reviews and due to:

* HD Polarized Composite Lens - Polarized sunglasses provide 100% protection against UVA/UVB & UVC Rays
* Metal Frame - Lightweight and Strong
* Lifetime Breakage Warranty and Money Back Guarantee

I also like the fact that when I sent them a FB message asking if they provided a veteran or active duty military discount they got back to me within a day with a %15 off promo code which brings them down to a whopping $17. I figure that if I can get them replaced once they come out to about the same price as the Yums sold at Wally World which I've used in the past as well but have not cared for due to their design in combination with the shape of my melon which caused discomfort around the bridge of my nose and around my ears.

I live in a van down by the river.

Walgreens has polarized sunglasses for $20.

Even the tan/lighter tinted ones that work during cloudy days.
