I have to say I use Oakley Sunglasses exclusively. I have tried others (Native, Smith) and for Sunglasses I find nothing works like Oakley. These glasses are great for most uses. On the water, chilling around town, city rides on the bike, the BBQ, at the pool. For longer rides, backpacking trips, etc, I find they are a bit heavy and there is not enough air that gets in, so they get hot. But then again, if you are looking for glasses for this purpose I recommend another pair of oakley, anything more sporty will do. Also these are durable and the polarized (for me anyways) is a must. Once you see that well, it is hard to go back.
