Sunnies, shades, sunglasses, whatever you call 'em... whatchu got?

I have Oakley Half Jacket Prizm Dark Golf lenses and Maui Jim's with rose glass lenses.  The Oakley are fine, but the Maui Jim's are superior in every way.  Unfortunately their price reflects that.

I played all last year in Ray-Ban Original Wayfarers polarized and liked them. However, I'm currently looking at Oakleys. Particularly at the Dark Prizm Golf lenses. Haven't quite decided on which frame, it's between the Flak 2.0 XL and the Portal X. Decided it has to be the Dark (not Black) Prizm for brighter sun. I can play w/o glasses in cloudy weather. I've decided I don't want Polarized. I'd prefer the Prizm as they provide better definition. Now just need to snag a great deal on them.

1/26 Update: Acquired a pair of Oakley Portal X with Prism Dark Golf lenses. I tried on the Portal X and the Flak 2.0 XL and preferred the fit and coverage of the Portal X. I like the D Prism Dark Golf for the visibility and the improved definition over my polarized Ray-Bans  I was able to take them outside and test for visibility an sun protection ( it's winter here, with ice and snow) When the sun was out, they were great for light reduction. With some overcast the still allowed my good visibility and definition. On darker cloudy days, I don't wear sunglasses. I used to take my glasses off to putt. I'm going to try putting while wearing these, to determine if the increased definition helps.

So I had Oakley flak jackets with changeable lenses for all different colored golf shirts.....unfortunately in all sports I go 💯 and they popped off my head during a basketball game with my nephew...they were stepped on and very broken so I’m in the market.....

anyone have some suggestions for ones like the flak jacket? I’ll probably get them again because they’re nice and light

I'm sporting a pair of bicycle shades my wife got me for Christmas.  They go from clear to dark as the sun changes, so they're perfect for riding my bicycle or playing golf.  I also have a pair of Tifosi glasses that I like.  Both pair are wrap around style.

Look at Tifosi. They have a couple of styles similar to the Flak Jacket.

I need prescription sunglasses. My first pair was a set Of Oakley's with prizm lens. The lenses kept popping out and after many times putting them back in the thin edge cracked. 

Currently using REKS - half the price of Oakleys; quality is just as good. High quality Trivex Lenses.

Tried our the Flak 2.0 with dark golf lense. Didnt like there was a small plastic piece that was visible on the outside of each lense when wearing. Switched to half jacket with same lense and there great. If its sunny enough i'm squinting i think i'm better off wearing sunglasses than not. The lenses do make the grass stand out a bit.

I just got Oakley Flak Jacket 2.0 XL with the light golf lens. It is making it much easier to follow the ball. Very happy with the glasses.

I have a few pair, but they're all identical.

 

Classic Blues Brothers Ray Bans ground to my progressive lens prescription.

 

That's what goes best with suits and hats, from what I can see.

I recently moved from my Tifosi sunglasses to a pair of Rock Bros Transitional lens glasses.  The lenses aren't as optically good as the Tifosi were, but they're still very acceptable for golf and I like that they adjust the tint as necessary.  For years, I wore Oakley Flak glasses, but got tired of buying them every time I lost/broke/misplaced a pair.

I’ve worn Oakley Flak Jackets for as long as I can remember. I’ve always liked the fit so they are my goto sunglasses on and off the course.

I use the Carbon Professional model from NYX Sunglasses. I originally started wearing those years ago because you could get a prescription insert. Since cataract surgery, I no longer need that insert and they are a nice wrap around style that comes with three different shades of lenses. They are lightweight and reasonably priced.

I find that if I start my round with them on I need to keep them on for the entire round or else it throws me off. Haha I know, call me crazy! I use polarized but honestly don't know if it makes a substantial enough difference to justify the cost increase some brands charge. I've had luck with affordable options from Amazon. I did buy a high-end pair of Oakley's only to find out that the sand from bunker shots scratched them up after a year of wear.

I'm the same. If I put them on, they have to stay on. When I was in high school, my dad taught me how to test glasses: put them on, then look at your feet. lift the glasses up. Your feet will look like they've moved as the edge of the lens passes. But some will move more than others, so you gotta figure out how your vision will be affected by taking your glasses on and off.

I've picked up a couple pairs of Goodrs for $25 a piece. They're not bad for the price! The only real complaint I have with them is they are not wrap-around and so if the sun is behind you, it can reflect off the inside of the lens 😕
