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.

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.

      Those are some nice fat bass😉. Avon area is fun, lots of good water out there. Spunk chain has nice green bass and a bonus walleye now and then.  . Pelican and Pine are both worth a try a couple times a yr as well, have done very goid on Pine when its been too windy to get on the bigger lakes. You mentioned a kayak? St Johns lakes are awsome, though I haven't been out there in couple yrs

      Headed up tomorrow for Memorial weekend.  Any tips on walleye patterns?  Deep?  Shallow?  Still chubs/rainbows?  Not looking for spots or secrets, just a little info to get started.   Smallies move up yet with the water temp rising?

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources urges property owners in the southern part of the state to wait one month before removing evergreens that are showing stress after a harsh winter and late spring. Some will recover.  DNR forest health specialists have received reports of spruce, white cedar, and white pine that appeared to die suddenly in Fillmore, Houston, Freeborn, Goodhue, and Hennepin counties. In some cases, up to 90 percent of needles in the upper canopy of spruce trees have fallen off, while the bottom branches remained green. “In most instances, this extensive needle loss is the result of severe winter drying,” said Brian Schwingle, DNR forest health specialist. “Warm, windy days with low humidity in late April caused evergreen needles to lose moisture, and the frozen soil in the root zone prevented water from moving back into the needles to replace that moisture.” Recently planted evergreens and smaller trees were hardest hit. Schwingle recommends that people keep an eye on their evergreens and wait to see if they regain their canopy with new growth. Trees with 50 percent or more of their needle canopy remaining could recover. For more information, see hort.uwex.edu/articles/winter-burn. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      I don't follow things closely, so I just found out about this last night. The Lake Vermilion Fire Brigade is hosting a pig roast fundraiser on Saturday from 4-7pm to support its operations. There are live and silent auctions along with stuff for the kids. Check it out:   http://www.lakevermilionfirebrigade.com/a-squealin-good-time-for-all-ages/ We are going to go.

      I’ve heard phenomenal things about the rivers, willhave to pull the kayak out and get on it. Thank you everyone for the feedback. I’ve checked out Clearwater, I really enjoyed it but lately it seems to tough for my 14ft boat to be stable out there on a windy day.  I’ve had success in Avon lately.
