Sunglasses preference's

Well since the thread was started on the low light sunglass's thought I would start a thread on what brand glass's you prefer to wear.Some guys that work up north prefer their Eyres which are supplied by the mining company's which are good for work and play each person has their own preference could even be the Big W specials.

For me I prefer and wear
Mako Barra blue lense
Oakley thumps and Oakley jacket grey lense
Ray Ban Aviators 50 black smoke lense

Maui Jim and Shimano

Thu, 2008-02-28 07:22

I have a pair of Maui Jim's which are great until the sun gets too low. They are great at cutting the glare down and very light. The glass lenses are also tough and resistant to scratching.
I picked up a cheap pair of Shimano sunglasses at a 30 per cent off sale at Kmart and while they don;t have the glare cuting capabilities of the Maui Jim's they work well and because they are wrap arounds they keep out side glare.
And as they were so cheap, it doesn't matter as much if they get bashed around.
I tend toi use my Shimanos for driving and everyday wear and my Maui Jims for fishing.

Spotters Are the Best! Lenses Dont Get Scratched all parts are easily replacable.. yes they come at a price but it is well worth it! with such a vast range of frames and lenses i believe that everyone can find a pair they like in the spotters range

got spotters and Makos

Thu, 2008-02-28 09:07

Got both, both in the orangy sort of tinge. Can't really pick them apart ovbiously they are different but both work well. Makos are photochromatic and both are glass, have held up really well. Mate lost my spare makos barras over the side of the boat in Exmouth - bugger. One thing I reckon is a winner is to buy a really good pair for fishing -creeks flats etc, and then get some shimanos or similar for driving the boat. That way your lenses on your good glasses stay clean for when you need them, I can never seem to get them really clean without a bit of detergent and some hot water at the end of the day.
