Default Got Some New Glasses

Long story short. Messed up my Oakley sweeps lens and had a polarized one on order. It's not here yet and I am leaving tomorrow for the coast. Living in the podunk town we do there are very little choices for sunglasses so we decided to take a trip about 30 miles away. Forgot it was "tax free" weekend. Freaking people everywhere. Went to Sunglass Hut to look at Revos. With my waterhead, all of them just were too small for my face. Stopped in at Dicks and that was a waste of time.

Finally remembered a small bait and tackle shop that I frequent about halfway home was a Costa dealer. I figured as small as they are they probably would have 3-4 pairs but was pleasantly surprised. Not only was the selection great they were also 20% off! Ended up with a pair of Fisch with the blue mirrored lenses and the wife got a pair of the Frigates with the green lenses. In the past I've either gone with Oakleys or had the Ray Ban aviators and have a local optician replace the lenses with polarized but I'll say we are extremely impressed. Can't wait to try em on the water.
