Default new sunglasses

I was planning on buying myself a new pair of fishing sunglasses for Christmas. At this point i was planning on costa's with glass lenses and was wondering what lens color would be the best. I mainly fish from the surf, or off jetties. Any recommendations are appreciated. Also not completely sold on costas yet so any other brand recommendations would also be appreciated

KAENON! You can get thematMelton Tackle, SunglassHut,& some other places or if ya go to www.kaenon.comyou can buy them str8 from them in Cali (that's what I did & it was much cheaper than stores), they also have a sales area. I LOVE MINE!! I haven't had anything fade, break, chip, scratch, nothing gone wrong so far (1 year of wear...). I have thecopper darkest %lens &Iseem to seefish with those that my husband doesnt see with his new Oakleys. (LOL!)I remember his Costas used to fog up, but my Kaenon's dont do that.I want to get a secondpair witih the gray lens just because, plus I really like the styles they have.

You may want to try on some Oakley's. I have the Flak jacket with polarized VR28 Black Iridium. Super lightweight and you can change out lenses if you want. Highly recommended

I saved up for months and finallyfound the pair of Costa's I wanted on ebay. I got the Permit 580's copper glass with silver mirror. Paid $186.50 shipped (250 msrp). Don't want to sound like "one of those guys" but they are completly badass. They are huge (and so is my head) and fog, so they have three little vents on each side that really work.

how much better are the 580's then the normal glass lenses is it worth the additional price.

to me, they're not in the same ball park. 580's are more like seeing everything in HD.

i have heard good things about some of the guide linesglasses.

Guideline Elites would be my choice.

But if you want to spend the extra money, try the silver Costa lenses. You'll be amazed at the difference from blue or green.
