Best Sun Glasses for the buck?

I am pretty well set with my other gear but know very little about what is out there in polarizing sun glasses.

What kind have people been happy with for the money?

Depends on how much you are willing to spend. You can get effective glasses from a big discount retailer for about $10. Some of them even look ok. However, you could spend big bucks on a pair of something like Maui Jims and have the best made glasses in the world. Both work. I suggest you start browsing the local fly shops, sporting goods stores and sunglass speciality places and trying on some of the different designs and see what fits your face the best, which are the most comfortable and which design style effectively shades your eyes. Maui Jims, Oakley and Action Optics all make good glasses.
