Costas are garbage IMO, but the lenses are the best for what I do, therefore I have 2 pair.

What do you do that requires Costa lenses? I know people have different needs in gun glasses (I have two pair of specialty biker glasses for both day and night for example) but I was unaware Costas had different lenses than other brands.

nothing, but i'm on the water all year and the polarization cuts the glare on the water better than other shades I've used.

Gotcha. I'm very glare sensitive myself. And to be honest, the best glasses I've found in this regard (even better than my Ray Bans) is my pair of Harley Davidson daytime riding glasses. The only problem with them is that if I try to wear them when I'm not actually going down the road, they fog up due to the the padding under the lenses. But as far as knocking out glare, they are great.

That is it. I ordered a pair of Oakley flak jacket XJS, or something like that, a week ago so you would think I would remember the name of the site and the glasses. I really like the glasses and they were very cheap.

I paid $80 bucks for the Flak Jacket xjs with non polarized lenses. I am sure I will suffer for being a cheap skate as I could have gotten the polarized ones for $110. I can order new polarized lenses for $40 so i figured that would be the better route.

Downside is, the black polarized goes on backorder all the time. I was thinking about getting a new pair of greys for everyday and converting my old frames to black iridium polarized for high glare/on-the-water situations.

Exactly what I am planning to do. Non polarized greys are fine for now. I won't be in a hurry when I order polarized black lenses.

Can get these garage rock from standard issue for $85 or so. Been meaning to try on a pair before ordering. Never owned any Oakley's but can't pass up that discount.
