Maui Jim, but no cheaper than Oakleys. But the best lenses ever.

Love my Maui Jims too! Great after sales service, they repair damaged glasses.

Oakley sunglasses are fantastic. I had a pair last a good 10 years before meeting their untimely end thanks to DS.

However nowadays I buy whatever from TK Maxx has rating 3 (highest that are still good for driving) for about £10-15. Now on a cost per year basis the Oakleys probably still work out better value even though they are the way more expensive choice. Also the lens on the Oakleys are incomparably better (eg less colour distortion and better in florida levels of sunshine). However every Tk max pair I have have been good enough that I don't hanker after my old oakleys and I even if I did I can't afford the initial outlay of Oakleys any way.

In short if you can afford Oakley sunglasses get Oakley sunglasses, but the Tk max ones are good too.
