I agree with you all that a polarizer is a great tool, but ... its not to be used without thinking. The problem of darkening to much a high altitudes also exists a lot altitudes. Get a nice suny summerday around noon, no clouds and ... .

I had that problem last year and it made me think twice before using them again.

Ok you see the result on your camera display but ... that doesn't work so good in the full sun with sunglasses.

Polarizing sun glasses needed in the Pacific NW? Really? J/K! With the glorious weather this past weekend, at least in central WA (Wenatchee/Leavenworth), they were a must.

Seattle is the sunglasses capital. The sun hides for a while then shows up for a day or 2. Everyone runs out and buys sunglasses then the sun goes away. The sun is gone so long that when it comes back everyone has lost there sunglass so now they have to go buy some more. As we are a bunch of moles we need them for even the dim sunlight we get.
