Default Fishing sunglasses in South Calgary

I lost my polarized sunglasses on Friday at Chain lakes or Bear Pond or somewhere in between.

I live in Cranston deep south Calgary and don't want to make the trek to the fishing hole just for this. Any recommendations on where to go? Can't do online since I wear eye glasses and need to find a pair that fit comfortably on top of them. Not looking for expensive pair 20-30ish rangel

Thanks

Thanks whelen that was soooo helpful. NOT what I meant by "recommendations". By recommendations I meant actual members who might have first hand experiences to share.

Not all shops have full websites. Not all stores carry good low priced glasses (Cabelas is one that does not).

i own 3 pairs, all purchased at Costco.

They fit nicely over my glasses and are polorized. Dark grey or amber colours. Don't remember the cost but I think it is around 50 per pair.

you will find them in the glasses section.

I think the best sunglasses for the money are Ryders, they are directed to the cycling market, but they are solid and polarized. Plus its a Canadian Company. You can by from most cycling shops or direct via the website. Ive been wearing Ryders for over a decade now, my only complaint is after 5-6 years the rubber nose pieces just loose integrity.

Looks to me like someone took the time to locate what you were looking for and you decide to open the dumpster.

Yes Troller I might have over reacted. Look at his first post and my answer. Clearly I am not looking for a "web search". If you think he really was trying to be helpful and not troll then I understand your reply. I don' t think it is helpfull or necessary to tell me to look it up online rather then post here and then precede to do the search for me when title of thread is "looking for Sunglasses in South Calgary"

Thanks for all those who have contributed genuine recommendations. I will check out costco next time there. Like to buy in store to check fit over my glasses or wait until I head north someday and go to the fishin hole.

I'd try Costco. I don't know if they will have sunglasses to go over your Rx glasses. But they tend to have quality sunglasses that work well for fishing, and their price will be hard to beat if they have what you're looking for.

EDIT: Just read TROLLER's post. Should have just put +1 for Costco.

Thanks the ones I lost weren't special over glasses type but fit well and didn't look super big as most over glasses type.
