Costa Del Mar Flamingo $189; costadelmar.com
Heady Info: These combine an aviator look (and protection down to the cheekbone) with heft. Costa is among the dominators in eyewear among anglers because of the 580 lenses, which in our testing warded off direct light and glare better than any others , while maintaining the optimum clarity of glass.
In Our View: Don’t let the name fool you: These are for the manly boater who doesn’t mind a little weight on his face — and it takes prominent cheekbones to make the style work. The Flamingos have more individual pieces than wraparounds have and could become too heavy for bony-bridged noses during a long day. That said, of all the sunglasses tested, these feel as if they’d be the most durable.
