I was wanting to get a pair of Costa Permit 580G green mirrors. What other sunglasses should I check out before I make this purchase? I've checked out Maui Jims, but are they really any better than costa or oakleys? Open to any suggestions.

Thanks,
Clint

Get the Costas dood. I have a few pair and never buy anything else. What I meant was every time someone brings this up there's always a peepee match. Kinda like truck brands and cat vs mono!
Seeing HWs post I do have several pair of the magellans stored on the boat for when dummies like me forget to bring the costas offshore. It's happened more than once.

Maui Jims > Costas. Much better construction and since Costa blew up with marketing to the frat crowd, etc their quality and service has declined, IMO

I pulled the trigger on Maui's with Rx lenses 18 months ago and it has been a complete game changer.

Smith optics only.
I like Smith Optics too. The resolution is very good, price is right and they fit my big fat head. :D Only thing I didn't like is the rubber piece on the leg. Felt like they were digging in real hard after wearing them all day.

Finally found a pair of Costas that fit in 580 green and they weren't that much more than the Smiths.

all of them are good, people will say i broke my costas in a week, well if you freakin sit on then and treat them like they are made of steal, they will break. Yes the elnses will crack if you throw them around like a rag doll. Costas, by far are the best, just take care of them and they will last a long time. I have 3 pairs and have not had one issue with any of them. Thee guys saying they broke 3 pairs and ****, just too rough on sunglasses period
