    For really blue blue sky, i believe first and foremost, you need a blue sky. No amount of CPL or PS would do if the above is not satisfied. There is absolutely no need for 2 CPL, you will lose about 4 stops of light, which is quite bad. (assuming you are taking normal landscape shots.)

    I believe 1 CPL would do, Hoya ones would do. As Adam suggest, B+W would be the higher consumer end ones. The build is better, handled their UV and CPl before. But be prepared for an arm and a leg, considering its just a piece of glass.

    But, i believe, some PS is used to up the contrast in many of the blue skies you see.

    Good Luck!
