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
tell you the truth i love costa's but i just picked up this 20.00 pair from boaters world and there great.. and 180.00 less... i need to send 2 pairs of costas out to be fixed.. one the frame broke.. i did drop them and the other little piece of rubber on the arms is wearing.. but there 5 yrs old
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.
