I've been using a great pair of Smiths now for over 20-years, for both hunting and fishing (& even driving) but they're getting a bit long in the tooth these days. I know the technology in eyewear has advaced several steps from where it was when I bought these units, so who's got the better option these days? Costa "sunrise silver" mirrors were reccomended to me a while back, to deal with that strobe-like tree shadow, open light, tree shadow stuff that makes it tricky for a lot of sunglasses. I used-to flyfish alot here (before Colorado became overrun by all the refugees from the left coast) but I still really rely on my shades to navigate the local (& other) waters when wading, so very good polarizing is absolutely essential as well. Cheap sunglass have also come a long way but... cheesy plastic stuff leaves me cold, so I'm willing to pay the freight for the right suff. What says the cognosenti here?

I don't need prescription shades just yet, so I'd still be looking at over-the-counter options. Maui Jim and Glacier have also been mentioned to me as well.

Keep in mind that if you have a car with a HUD (heads up display) like my wife's Hyundai Palisade you cannot see the HUD display with polarized glasses. Polarized glasses also don't work with the tablet I use in our airplane for navigation. I now use polarized sunglasses only for fishing.

I just spent six weeks shooting quail in the desert wearing Bolle’s.

Prescription, bi-focal, polarized, poly carbonate, wraparound.

Absolutely no complaints whatsoever.

1 caveat though.

Some automobile surfaces are tinted with polarized film. And if you look at them wearing your polarized glasses, you will get constructive interference, and the surface will look black, or striped. That’s just physics.
