Sunglasses recommendations

    I have been a huge fan of Maui Jim sunglasses for years. I like the flexible hinge.

    I broke my latest pair spelunking in a cave with my kids. I did not expect them to be willing go through the cave, or I would have left them with my wife at the entrance. I put them in my pocket and got stuck in a very tight shute and broke my Mauis getting unstuck. I am now in the market for a new pair of sunglasses and thought I might try something different.

    Can you recommend a manufacturer?

    I've always been an Oakley fan.  I tried some highly recommended Tifosi's next year but they weren't for me (the fit wasn't great and I thought the optical quality wasn't great IMO).

    I want to give Maui Jim's a try though.

    I prefer the Oakley's or Revo's.  I like to wear them during the round, but I always take them off when I take a shot or put.  I know RockBottom Golf also has a connection to their sunglasses web-site.  You may want to give it a try.

    Good luck.

    Oakley always deserves consideration.Seemingly endless frame options and excellent lenses. I used to do a lot of competitive sailboat racing and popular brands we used were Revo and Vuarnet. I also love RayBans..Maui Jims? Love their styles and obviously aa heritage born on the water so lenses are excellent. Hard to go wrong buying another pair!

    I will only use Oakley's.

    I have done some research on this earlier this year.  I arrived for my situation and preferences at Oakley's with G35 lenses.  I did not go for polarized since it took away a few highlights on greens etc... FWIW...good luck!

    If you already are used to Maui Jims, stick with 'em.  They're like FJ.  They're the best, in my opinion, don't settle for less.  

  •  

    In my experience, I must say Maui's have the best lenses, just my non official take on the subject!

  •  

    I use the Oakley Flak Jacket with G Series lenses. Have used a couple different types (M Frame) for a while, but I need my prescription optics since I cannot wear contacts. The Oakley prescription program worked well for me.

    And the lenses, IMO, are top notch!

    I'd agree with this.  I've used Oakley's for years and even have a pair of Oakley goggles for snowboarding.  You really can't go wrong with all of their different lens and frame varieties!

    Based on experience with a lot of different sunglasses, I think the Maui Jim's are some of the best.  As far as the lenses are concerned, my eye doctor said that they are the only sunglasses she recommends.

    I only wear Oakley's since they offer a prescription option with most all frames they offer.

    I like Peak Vision.  Their prescription lenses are great and the dual zone feature is hard to beat.

    It's Oakley for me.
