Sunglasses that fit over prescription glasses

Recommended Posts

Questor

I found a really great concept at Walmart a couple of months ago made by Overcast. It's a pair of good quality polarized sunglasses that fit over glasses. In other words I can wear my glasses and then put the sunglasses over them without clipping anything onto my prescription lenses.

The problem with those glasses is that they are poorly made, and the two pairs I bought, one for my son and one for me, both broke at the same spot on the leg. It's a design flaw.

Do you know of another brand of this type of sunglasses that is reasonably priced?

The concept has worked very well, we just need a durable product.

Thanks.

I have sunglasses that fit over regular glasses, I bought them at Remolds welding supply store in Mankato.

Have you ever consider getting some prescription sunglasses? I had a custom pair made for my dad for his birthday. They were costa del-mar polarized with a progressive bi-focal, and he won't fish without them.

There's a brand I've had for a while called Cocoons. You can get them at Gander or Cabelas for about $40. They work great.

Thanks for the advice.

I did try a pair of prescription sunglasses but didn't like them because I do a lot of fishing where there are transitions from light to shadow (trout streams, for example). Up to now I've had a strong preference for clip-on flip-up style sunglasses because I could wear them in the sun then just flip them up in the shadow.

The kind that slip over glasses are very nice when used in conjunction with a neck strap.

My dad has used Fitovers and likes them.

I have fitovers and they are nice, although they are pretty clunky. I've had the same pair for years and they hold up nicely, esp. if you store them well.

      Been a brutal hard water season for me as well, figured it was a continuation of my fall fishing luck.

      Thanks guys.  I checked out Modis for ice coverage and Navionics to help understand how things are laid out.  Knowing what areas certain fish prefer and those typical depths is a big plus.

      My wife and I are hoping to get up to Mille Lacs this Saturday and spend the night on the ice.  Does anyone have any last minute availability?  All the resorts I've contacted are booked. Thanks!

      Lots of nice fish!  Central Mn is cranking out some nice panfish.

      Great Idea Rick

      A plus is that the forecast is for a much nicer day Saturday.

      Thanks for your work guys! You were showin' some serious team spirit being out there today. I would have helped but I had a few appointments today I couldn't reschedule. I know I'm available Friday to do any last day scouting/fine tuning....

      Definitely a grind out prefishing cats today for the gathering.  Weather made it to tough but I Jeff  and his brother pushed through the elements to try and find a few active schools .   Locating the schools were tough took a pile of holes and the augers got a workout for sure,  but fortunately  we did find a couple active schools. Jeff and his brother found a few on one lake and I found a decent school on another lake. The good news was that both schools were cruising shallow flats in both locations and about the same depths. Great news as this is a good indication they are feeding on these flats.   Amazeingly both schools were found on a inside corner. Bingo looks like we have a pattern formed. We iced and marked  a fair number of cats in both locations so things are looking good for Saturday. Plus is we added a few for the fish fry already  Jeff I'll keep plugging away out there hopefully I can dial them in even more I have a hunch there are a few more close by where we ended.
