These are the best sun glasses I've ever owned!!!!!!! I have $200+ REVO's and Oaklys and these blow them away. By far the best of the best. Worth the price!!! I'd buy another par in a flash!!!!! Get the 580 blue mirror type for the best water & snow function.
These are awesome shades! They are comfortable and have the most amazing polarization I have ever seen. I took my son bream fishing and I could easily spot the fish on their beds in murky water.
I purchased the 580s in copper. I like the lense for day to day activities and driving. I have not used them for fishing yet, but so far I am a big fan.
I've had several pairs of Costas, different styles. They have good optical quality, and some do well at speed without causing your eyes to tear (biking, skiing). That being said, they seem very fragile and prone to breaking. One pair broke when I received the most gentle of hugs. Two other times they broke simply by putting them on. When I contacted Costa for warranty repair, every time they refused to honor their 'lifetime warranty' and charged me to 'warranty' (repair) their product. I am used to and prefer dealing with reputable companies that steadfastly stand behind their goods. I will never buy another Costa product, I'm going back to Ray Ban. Same good optics, real warranty protection!
I was and still am a bit dissapointed with the purchase. Reading through all of the reviews I thought I would be more impressed!
The lens are a bit too dark for the fall in Iowa and the spring loaded hinges loosen up a lot.
My impression may change when I'm at our Sarasota home for the winter fishing
