I have used the Oakley G30 flak jackets for years.  They provide the basics, no sight line below your eyeline and they are light.   But the downside for poly carbonate lenses or plastic lenses is that they scratch very easily.  right now my Oakley's have a fairly significant scratch on the left lens.  I still use them but lately also use a pair of Kaenon  Kore glasses that I bought for fly fishing.

The Kaenon glasses, like the G30 lens, are pretty light weight and  light colored and for fishing I found them to be the lightest lens out there for late day fishing.  I think a lighter lens is good for golf as well.

Fly fishermen are the most experienced sunglasses users.  As the optometrist (?) said earlier, the best glasses are Maui and Costa580.  I use the latter with glass lenses and they are the best lenses I have ever used.  Smith is also a good choice.  I fish with fellows that use chromapop lenses and they swear by them.  But for golf I don't think it is necessary to spend the extra money for polarization.  I only spent the money on the Kaenons because they had the Best low light lens that was also polarized for fishing.

What about Nike Cross Trainer glasses?  Any thoughts on those?  They seem to be relatively cheap ... and certainly a good brand.

I have a few pairs of glasses that I mainly just use on the course (Oakley & Arnette) with a few different kind of golf lenses (VR28 Iridium, G30, Prizm, Fuse F30 Amber) and I have to say out of all the lenses I've played with the Fuse F30 are my favorite. Don't get me wrong the G30 & Prizm are both amazing but it all depends the weather conditions sunny/cloudy/overcast etc on which worked better. The F30's perform for me in all conditions it seems. I also pick up the ball flight with them the best off the tee on really bright sunny days. If you already have a pair of name brand shades I'd give them a shot... you can get them off their site or ebay for $18 or so shipped. Alot cheaper then buying a whole new pair.

BTW all my lenses for golf are non-polarized.

I completely agree with everybody else that I would not go cheap for sunglasses. I had LASIK surgery on my eyes so they are very sensitive to the sunlight. I currently wear Oakley Thinlink that have the prizm lenses which are incredible and well worth the money.

I have had my Radar Path frames for a while. I started on the G30 and moved on to the Prizm Golf lens. They were great until I played on a really bright day. I ended up getting the Prizm Field lens, and they are great too.

Now I use either the Prizm Golf or the Prizm Field depending on the conditions. These lens were definitely both worth the price, even though I only use them to play golf.

Yes, REI does. It's pretty hard to find an outdoor retailer that does not carry Smith.

http://www.smithopti...Max/p/PMPPGDMMB

Being a self admitted sunglasses ho (about $8000 in sunglasses laying around the house and cars at this moment), Smith with their photochromic chromapop ignitor polarized lenses are hands down the best I've ever worn, out of all Oakley products (Prizm, etc...I have all sorts of spare lenses aroubd), Maui Jims, Costas (hate them)...Any major brand I have.  The chromapop ignitor lenses enhance color and definition so well and so pleasing to the eye, that looking at things without the glasses on (normal, natural light) makes things look dull and lifeless. And the photochromic tech changes the darkness of the tint with sunlight intensity, so even on overcast days you can wear them without worry of things being too dark. And they get plenty dark in bright sunlight to keep you from squinting.  

I've really always felt like any glasses/lens combo have were a compromise somewhere...Changed color tint too much, too dark for all but the brightest days, or too little tint for bright days, but the Smith products with the Chromapop photochromic polarized ignitor lenses (what a mouthful) are damn near perfect in every way.

The problem with Oakleys is that they make you look like david duval or kenny powers or some other such terrible look from 1993.

I own and wear 5 pairs of sunglasses and all of them are Maui Jim's.  I've had Oakley's and Revo's, but the polarization and clarity of the Maui Jim are the best with very little distortion.   Much more comfortable on me than any other sunglasses I've had.   My brother was a big Oakley person, especially when we're out on the water fishing.   One day, he forgot his sunglasses and I usually carry an extra pair or two so he wore one of my Maui Jim's.  Since then, he's gone all Maui Jim.  Even bought a pair for his wife which she absolutely loves.   My goto pair are the Ho'okipa.   Very light and comfortable.

This is all you need to know IMO. I use the the Smith Captain's Choice frame with Poloarized Ignitor Chromapop Photochromic lense. I wish Smith had a referral program considering the amount of people I've turned on to these in the last month since buying them.

It really is the best lens I've ever experienced, and as I stated (rather embarrassingly), I've tried/owned them ALL. The most telling thing is letting people try on my Smiths with these lenses and watching/listening to their reaction.  I never really want to take them off, they make things in all light conditions look that good.

I have a stupidly large head (about an 8 hat size) and I love the Drake model with the lenses I've mentioned above.

I am a sunglasses ho as well (albeit nowhere near Chris's level :to_become_senile: ) but have been almost all Oakley for a long time.  My current gamers are the Radarlock Path with Prizm Golf lenses, but I am not a big fan of the look overall.  Definitely function over fashion.  

Based on this thread I placed an order for the Captain's Choice with the Poloarized Ignitor Chromapop Photochromic lens.  I wanted a Polarized lens that was good for golf so it sounds like this is the best choice. We will see how this goes!

Which Smith models fit a large head?

I have a stupidly large head (about an 8 hat size) and I love the Drake model with the lenses I've mentioned above.  

How about for a pinhead?

Oakley Prizm only way to go

I put on a pair of these on #1 Tee Sunday morning......OMG, I must own a pair now.

I designed a pair on Oakley @ $190.  Do we have a way to get discounts at oakley.com?

This is what happens when you leave your sunglasses on the bumper of your car while you change shoes and forget about them.  Luckily, Maui Jim has a lifetime warranty.  I called them and the woman said "if they can't fix it..."  and I stopped her right there.  I told her "Ohhhh, these aren't getting fixed."   For $60, they'll send me a new pair.

sign up for their emails. they'll do a F&F discount a few times a year with i believe a good % off. sometimes in stores do it more often than online. check you local O store and see if they have any promos? mine had one get a 2nd lens half off when you build.

After reading this thread, I might try some Smith Chamber Elite's w/ the Chromapop+ Photochromic Ignitor lens.

Eventhough, I have a few pairs of Oakleys and other brands... after watching this: https://www.youtube....hRUpt7jrMuf2vs9 on 60Min a few years ago I kinda got the bad taste in my mouth that I'm just buying overpriced junk plastic. :swoon2:

Reks Optics. The best 50 bucks you will ever spend for a pair of polarized sunglasses.

I have worn Oakley Bottlecap sunglasses with amber lenses for almost 10 years now (2nd pair), and have always loved the fit and feel of them (barely feel like I'm wearing them). However, my eyes have gotten dry enough where I can't wear contacts for more than an hour or two before I feel like I'm blinking over sandpaper. So now I have Rx sunglasses that I wear. For Rx sunglasses (and glasses in general, if you're not wearing a bifocal), make sure your optician measures for an optical center height (puts the Rx right in front of your eye instead of the middle of the lens). This will make it so you don't get too much distortion when looking out of the bottom of the glasses and also won't mess with your depth perception as much.

For me, I prefer a brown/amber lens or something similar to G15 (greenish/grayish). I wear polarized lenses because I also use them for fishing, but haven't had any more trouble reading greens that I would without polarized (but that's just me).
