Good - but not too $$ - sunglasses recommendation?

Post by dconnor » May 22nd, 2018, 4:10 pm

In the market for a decent pair of sunglasses that are reasonably dark (I find most sunglasses are not dark enough for bright sun shining off rock/snow), pretty rugged, but not crazy expensive as most seem to be these days!

Has anyone found anything they like that's a good values?

Thanks,
Daren

I like the ones Costco sells. About $29. As pictured in my avatar shot. Cheap enough to lose every now and then and durable to last for at least a year or two from the usual abuse I give every thing I own. I've had expensive sunglasses and these are just as good as Serengetis IMO.

I got the Champion ones at Costco too. Pretty nice and polarized I think. I also picked up some nice Nike polarized ones at the outlet in Woodburn. Both glasses are pretty dark and block peripheral light well.

REI Outlet. Usually 50% off, sometimes more. Frequent 20% coupons for outlet items.
