Default Wiley x

Someone stole my Costas out of my truck a couple days ago and I just ordered a new pair of Wiley X P-17's.

It seems to me the last 2-3 pair of Costas Ive had just havent held up, granted I am a little rough on them and maybe im expecting too much out of them considering I wear them to work, play and everthing in between.

I decided to try some of the Wiley-x's, a couple guys I know have them and speak greatly of them , has anyone here have any experience with them?

I've worn them for years. Can't say enough good things about them. I'm only bummed that the frames I have aren't made anymore, they fit better than anything else I've ever had. I wear them twice as much as the costas I have.

Heard the same about Costas. Poor quality for the cost. I have one pair for inshore I rarely wear- I prefer Maui Jim, but have heard some good things about Wiley X.

I had a pair of X's years ago and really liked em....but now that I have finally found a costa style frame I like after having a few pair, I'll stick with them.

Only used wifey x for tactical stuff but they are super nice when it comes to ballistic glasses. Always wanted to swap out lenses just never have.

I had a pair of Maui Jims that I bought in Hawaii in 1999 and loved them. Last summer I set them on the deck of my bass boat and forgot about them and took off and that was the end of them. I have a pair of Costas and just donít care for them. Iím now using Guidelines and theyíre OK. I guess I just got spoiled on the way the Maui Jims felt on my face and the customer service is outstanding. I had a broken arm and sent them back to Mau Jim with a check for $20 I believe it was and they put on a new arm, cleaned them up, and sent them back in a new bamboo case with a new cleaning cloth. I guess it comes down to how they feel for you and of course the customer service with the price of these glasses now a days.

I've worn Wiley X for many years in the Corps but that was for tactical reasons not for their polarization for fishing so I couldn't really comment on that aspect. Different glasses. Just go with what works for you.

I've been wearing them for at least three years and I cant say anything bad about them, tough, hard to scratch the lenses, comfortable, decent price.
