Sunglasses that fit over prescription glasses

7 posts in this topic

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.

      Has anyone tried out the polar bird hub houses? The floor looks like a neat concept I wonder how well it works. Looking for a small 2 man hub so I don't have to drag my huge heavy 6 man thermal hub when I go alone.

      I don't care if dnr checks me multiple times a day or I have to prove that I am not doing anything wrong. That is how they catch the guys who are doing stuff wrong. I am always legal so What do I care I have been checked what like 5-6 times in my life so far even if every time they were a bad_boy ( they were not ) who cares I have to deal with them 10-15 mins out of my day? Think about how many pricks they have to deal with every day.

      I did that with tango and saw a world of difference ... I started at Sand Pines and they helped me tons. The kid brought me out kept all the pheasants caged and would plant one at a time in a easy spot where I could see where he planted. I would let tango out we would flush it shoot retrieve come back I would put him in the car and we did that 3 times. After that he then planted the rest of the ones I bought and we found all but one. Next spot I brought him was Golden Meadows and they were helpful as well I had them flag the general area the pheasants were planted. I went there a couple times and each time they used less flags and planted the birds farther away from the flags they did have out. Until the last time I went used no flags at all.

      As if there was any question...definitely be careful on those high current lakes.  I went through (walking) on Koetter tonight. Thankfully I only plunged one leg in to the hip and was able to scramble away.   Its a spot I have been a dozen times in the past few years.  I knew the ice got thinner in this area but was always passable and I followed a 4 wheeler or tank track and then a foot/sled path so I thought I would stay dry.  I was ON the path when I got wet.  Had picks around my neck and glad I did even if I didn't use them (happened SO fast).  The walk back to the car was more than a little nerve wracking.  Not sure I'll ever fish that spot again.  And in the future I wont be so trusting of other's tracks.  Spud on...   tg
