I'm not a big fan of oakleys. I had a pair of ones that cost way too much and after three years the glass started to get what looked like stress fractures or something, tiny hairline cracks all over them. And all the rubber started to deteriorate.
I don't really care for glass lenses as I put my shades in the back of my neck often and the weight causes them to slip off.

Depends on what you are going to use them for. I have a pair of Oakley Radars with the best lens they offer. My friend has a pair of Costa's with the blue lens (don't know if its G or P). We were fishing the other day and I could see in the water to the bottom like he could. The difference was what I was seeing as a deeper spot, he was seeing as grass. I put his on and was like HOLY CRAP, that's grass.
If you are going to go fishing go with the Costa's
If you are just going for looks and feel, go with Oakleys..
Unless you are from Monroe and want to be like all the cool kids. then get Costa's and some croakies.....

Have this happen all the time with my Maui Jim's. Friends just cant see what I see and most of them wear Oakley's. A few have converted. Ive tried many glasses and see better with the Maui's than any other.
