Maui Jim or Julbo. Mostly Julbo because they make a glacier style


Nothing is foolproof to a sufficiently talented fool.

Been through about four or five pair of these. Still like 'em. Glass lens are non-polarized, which is true of all brands, afaik.

Vuarnet for driving, 3M tinted safety wrap arounds for work. I get 4 for $13. When you are cutting hay and hit a gopher mound they work well!
Decot's for shooting, vermillion tinted cause I'm pretty colorblind.

I'm hard to please, I guess, but I can't get along with one pair of sunglasses for everything. I use three kinds. My longtime favorite for driving, either highway or in the field on a tractor, is RayBan aviators with the mirror coating. For shooting shotguns there is nothing better, IMO, than Pilla, and I prefer the aviators with the orange enhancing coating and the maximum percentage of light transmission. I've tried other major brands of shooting glasses but can't leave the Pillas. For work and driving my Allison boat (sometimes up to 85-90 mph) I prefer a pair of cheap safety glasses that have a brown/amber tint, and are wraparounds. If you look back at the motor for a split second, at any speed above 60 mph, aviators blow off and sink in the lake or river. They are branded Bullheads, and will not blow off if you look back. They are the best inexpensive glasses I've ever found. I have to wear aviators as opposed to wraparounds when farming during the summer heat and humidity because wraparounds will make me sweat behind the glasses due to lack of air movement.

Another very good brand of driving glasses are the Serengeti branded aviators with the brown tint.


May God bless America and those who defend her.

I've been using Pilla glasses for hunting the last few years.

I like Costa for my truck and boat.

Stanton, many cycling glasses have vents along the frame to promote air flow.
Oakleys have them.

I have been using Maui Jims because the lenses are glass and yes, they are polarized.

Stan is clearly onto something that I hadn't considered. Each particular situation will have components that are critical for success. I had always treated sunglasses as something of an afterthought until I started wading gnarly rivers or started seriously hunting grouse in dappled sunlight. It sounds much like guns or any other tool, you must focus on your real needs first. My Smiths were my first pair of really good sunglasses (before that they were all basically cheap and disposable) that I got at "cost" at my nice gunshop job. Because the Smiths were so-much better than anything I'd ever tried before, I used them for everything and the surprise here is that they worked so well at all of it. Is there room for improvement now....probably yes, but at what cost? I guess I need to prioritize my needs and then rank-order each first. After that I need to consider the down-side of using one good set of sunglasses for all my applications (if there actually is a down-side). Because good fishing glasses most-directly keep me from getting hurt in a bad fall, I'll likely get a good pair of them first and see if I can make that work again for me. Keeping track of more than one good pair starts to become a pain at some point (which is why cheap sunglasses are just so darn useful). After that then maybe some Pillas....

You folks are a treasure, as always. Thank you all for the input.

Thanks for the correction, mucha. I see Randolph offers polarized glass lenses also.
