    Honestly, both at this point. I like to have options. For example, I have two watches, one for casual wear, the other for dress wear (I wear suits/dress shirts a lot). This is exactly what I want with sunglasses. I want aviators for casual wear to school and around town, but at the same time, I want a pair of sports sunglasses for when I'm out on Mount Diablo rock climbing. I looked at Ray Bans and Oakleys, but I don't have upwards of $200-300 just laying around for sunglasses.

    Most oakly and ray bans I see go for under $200. Lots of oaklys for under/around $150

    Exactly. I'm not about to drop $150 on sunglasses. $50 is a bit too much for me for a piece of plastic with 2 glass pieces in it.

    Sorry my confusion came in when you said upwards of $200-$300, and them being priced below $200. Anyway try native brand for some nice glasses in your price range. Sports style and most their lenses are polarized I believe.

    Thanks for the Native advice :). And sorry for the confusion with the $200-300 thing, I meant $200-300 when I buy BOTH pairs, not one.

    On-Duty I wear Spy Logan's. $49.99 at Costco. Off-Duty I wear Costa Del Mar Sunglasses! These work Fantastic in the Bright Florida Sunshine! They are a bit pricey, but well worth it. I get zero Eye Fatigue!

    Even with the price the Juliet's are so comfortable and cool (titanium, worn by Cyclops).

    Still rocking my Oakley Flak Jackets - black iridium Polarised lenses.

    I won't wear anything but oakleys now, and the FlakJackets XLJ fit my head perfectly

    Oakley Gascans. Great looking and can also double as shooting safety glasses.

    I have at least two pairs of prescription sunglasses specifically made for me after a thorough examination by my ophthalmologist. Along with footwear and bedding, this is one aspect of my my existence on which I do not hesitate to spend my money.

    All I wear is Oakley sunglasses. I've never found any other sunglasses that fit my head and are as comfortable as the 3 pairs of Oakley's I own!
