    I have 3 pairs of shitty Walmart sunglasses. $15 and polarized. They look like Oakley knockoffs, sorta squareish with red/orange mirror lenses. I have broken and lost far too many pairs of $300+ sunglasses to justify the cost.

    I've never got into wearing sunglasses. Everyone I hunt with is addicted to them like a drug. Almost don't function with out them.

    Maybe I'll have to find a pair I like and try em out...

    I couldn't get by without mine in a duck blind or dove field...
    If you haven't ever fished with POLORIZED glasses.... you don't know what your missing.
    My kids think I have "magic glasses" because they let me see more fish than they can.

    Haha I don't have the patients to fish... and duck hunting isn't for me, id rather stick to the lions. But I'm sure they'd help in the snow.

    As long as they are POLORIZED sunglasses, any pair would be fine for taking the glare off while in the snow.

    My opinion is that you more or less get what you pay for with any "OPTICS"... be it scopes, cameras, binocs, and even sunglasses.
    With the hazards of expensive glasses... you just have to be OK with loosing or damaging them sometimes.

    I am sure you might know... but different color lenses are designed for different types of activities.

    Maui Jim, amber lens. BEST clarity I've ever had. Much better than ray ban. Still on the first one I bought 16 years ago. no scratches. Those lenses are bulletproof. Great driving glasses.

    Ha! Still have 2 pair of frogs from the early 90's ( clear frames w/purple lenses). My kids (in college) think they are pretty cool.
