Costa Sunglasses

Don't waste your money on them just a fashion statement.

My frames are falling apart (the rubber part) after a few months. Even though they have a warranty this is my second pair doing this.

I'm going back to polarized Oakley's.

Have had the same pair for 3 years..wear 12 hrs a day 6 days a week and have never had an issue. I think I even still have the pair I bought before those. Are you sure you didn't get knockoffs or something?

Get a hold of the company. I am not a customer of their but they advertise on a local radio station which I know one of the host. He swears buy them and the customer service ..but then again his are free.

I stick with cheaper sunglasses ...that way when I bend over and look at something and they fall into the mower....it is not the end of the world.

I own three different sets of costas and I love them. Wear them every day and wouldn't go without them.

Try 3M's Orange County Choppers or Fuel lines of safety glasses: very stylish and built well.

I love my costa but not at work.

Why would you buy a $200 pair of sunglasses for lawn mowing or eye protection? Wouldn't last very long.

I quit buying expensive sunglasses years ago. We all wear Jackson Nemesis safety sunglasses about $6 a pair and hold up well.
