I've got a pair of Costa's and love 'em. Solid glasses with amazing lenses. I have the 580 lens they offer and can't be happier with them.

Kaenon's are pretty damn good! Costa del mar used to be good but the last two pair i was not impressed! i've had these kaenon's for close to a yr and the quality of the lense is better than i've seen before with other brands

I had Oakley prescriptions and had to replace the lenses twice because the polycarb lenses would scratch up just by breathing on them.. they were the worst glasses I ever owned.

I bought a pair of Maui Jim Volcanos last year ( also prescription) and I think they are awesome. Solid frame, no polycarb.... I am sold on them.

I had a $100 pair of arnettes that i loved. They fit well and covered alot of my face. But i lost them. I think i will try a pair of Natives for this summer.

I've been getting two years out of my Maui Jim's then the abuse I give them seem to be the end of them. I'll be buying another pair in a week or so.:D

calcuttas:D i ditch about 4 pairs a season over the side, i like the $15 price tag... and surprisingly, the lenses arent bad. no headaches, polarized, and they cut glare pretty well

I have both the Maui Jim's and the Costas. Think I prefer the Costas for lens quality. I'm actually about to order a new pair of Costas (have fathoms now) with the new 580 lenses. I particularly like the rubber parts of the frames that keep them from sliding off your face / nose. In Cape May both South Jersey Marina and Canyon Club are Costa dealers. We've got a bunch of styles at the Canyon Club to check out. Regardless, I think both brands are great. If you don't lose / destroy your glasses then I think it's worth every penny.
