      I bought these a couple days ago with a friend, and couldn't be happier with my purchase. I got the fintail and my friend got the aviator line. Both are extremely comfortable and look great on. I do a lot of kayaking and fishing and was looking for a pair of sunglasses with great polarized lens and and a snug fit so the glasses won't fall off on rapid river's. Cheers to a great pair of glasses!

      bought prescription fantail sunglasses thru a once authorized dealer, less than two years later the co-mold came off of the frame on one of the arms; instead of going back to dealer, i just fixed it with a little glue. now, low and behold the nose area co-mold rubber is falling apart, and off course it is now out of the two year warranty. because the dealer used a third party to manufacture the lenses, costa will not honor the so-called lifetime frame guarantee, because as i was told "they can't touch another labs lenses," what a way to shame consumers. i did make the mistake to recently buy a second pair, but when the co-mold rubber falls apart, i will no longer be purchasing anything costa brand. this is a cheaply made frame, made with inferior material, sold at a premium price. be prepared to use that lifetime replacement if you bought plain sunglasses.

      I've had my fantails for about two years. After reading these reviews, I actually haven't had any issues with the rubber coming off. However, I have had an issue with the arms. This is the second time the arm has broke where there is more rubber than frame on the arms. I am not rough on my costas but I do where them everyday. Both times it has broke, I laid them down in my hat or my vehicle and left them alone till the next day to find that they had broke. I love my fantails and don't want any other pair. Just want them to now break every year.

      Great except they fog up easily

      Comments about Costa Fantail Polarized UVA/UVB Protection Sunglasses:

      I've only had my 580G Fantails a several days and I love everything about them (style, feel, lens quality, etc) but they seem to fog up very easily. When I put them on after working out to drive home they fog up, or anytime the glasses are cooler than the ambient temperature by so many degrees they fog up. None of my other sunglasses have fogged as bad as these, maybe it's because they hug my face closer. Not sure if I'll return them or keep them yet, sometimes I fly fish in humid conditions and these might be unusable for that purpose.

      Hopefully they're fixing the Rubber

      Same problem with mine as most of the posts on this feed. I've had mine for a little longer than most, two pairs, one I got in 2011 and second in 2012. Sent both in for rubber issues last year, one pair was the nose rubber, the other was the ear piece. Repaired and wore for about a year until the rubber separated again. I called in today and it sounds like they've redesigned the frame and will be replacing it under warranty. Still don't agree with having to pay for shipping and then a general warranty fee for such expensive glasses but I guess I'm a sucker because I keep doing it. Hope they'll get it resolved this time with the design change in the frame. Otherwise, love the glasses, fit my face better than any other pair and the lenses are the best I've worn. Will update you all once I get them back.

      At one time Costa cared glasses were great and always dependable last to pairs I boughtt were not so great disappointed in glass fog and frames not holding well. Costa maybe you need to reinspect your quality control.

      I purchased my Fantails w/580G while on vacation in Florida. The clarity of the 580G is amazing. These fit my head very well compared to others that I have used in the past. These are my first pair of Costa's and wont be my last.

      Great Job Costa!!!!!!

      I used to have a pair of Fantails and like most, I had an issue with the rubber molding. So, I was looking at getting a new pair of the Whitetip and noticed a pair of Fantails that were fully molded and a pair not. I assume Costa fixed the problem by taking the full mold off. I bought a new pair and no issues. So, glad because the the Fantails are my favorite as far as fit and looks.

      Great glasses!!

      Comments about Costa Fantail Polarized UVA/UVB Protection Sunglasses:

      Just got my first pair of Costa's .. the glass lenses are awesome. The clarity is incredible. Love the look of the glasses as well. Only complaint is the arms curving to your head after wearing them for a while start hurting/irritating my head where the arms curve tightly against your head. Gave 4 stars for overall but when wearing sunglasses all day long I don't choose these to take w me which kinda sucks because as I said overall I love the glasses

      Great sunglasses for fishing!

      Comments about Costa Fantail Polarized UVA/UVB Protection Sunglasses:

      I bought these sunglasses with the intention for fishing and may I say they are spectacular. I've had the pair of sunglasses for 3 years, worn every day with minimal ware until my dog got ahold of them... apparently I wasn't the only one who loved them. I sent my frame to be repaired to Costa and had my frame replaced with a newer version free of charge! (only paid shipping) I now own a new pair once again, great product and customer service. Items don't last forever only memories, buy some Costas and let's go fishing!

      I bought Fantail BLK 580 ...

      By 

      from Marco Island, FL, United States

      Comments about Costa Fantail Polarized UVA/UVB Protection Sunglasses:

      I bought Fantail BLK 580 glasses in October, 2011 and have loved them. I only wear them 5 months per year so am very disappointed that the rubber on the nose pad is severely cracked through to the plastic. I'm afraid it is going to separate and render them unusable. Reading the many reviews with the same or similar problem I discovered I am not alone! For that reason, I'm reluctant to send them for repair as it seems the problem is a recurring one!

      Love them but needed repair

      Comments about Costa Fantail Polarized UVA/UVB Protection Sunglasses:

      The Fantail fit my face the best out of all the Costas I tried on but I still get some sunlight coming in from the back and sides. Hard to completely avoid but still annoying while fishing at times. Like others have stated, the rubber around the nose also came loose on my glasses within the first year of use. I simply fixed it with super glue in 30 seconds and has never come loose again. Still dissapointing to spend so much and have them fail. But the green mirror 580P lenses are superb for sight fishing freshwater. I highly recommend them but on mine the insides have gotten pretty scratched up. Most likely from using my t shirt to clear off fogged lenses because they still get fogged up due to the close fit when sweating. Now they are a little cloudy to look out and am thinking of replacing with another pair or another brand.
