      I owned a pair of the Costa MP2 sunglasses that sadly broke after 11 years; however, I'm impressed they held up as long as they did. I wasn't sure the repair/replace lifetime warranty would cover it, but it in fact was covered. I found out they couldn't be repaired so I began searching for a different pair. I came across the Blackfins and they fit perfectly. They arrived really quickly and I'm loving them so far. I'm hoping the rubber on the frame holds up as I've seen some issues with other Blackfin owners. One post from Costa in response to another review stated that they have been re-designed so fingers crossed!!

      RUBBER SEPARATING FROM FRAME!!!! AGAIN!!!!!

      First I would like to say I have been a huge Costa fan for the last 14 years. The 580G lenses outperform the rest and I don't buy anything else. With that being said - I HAVE HAD THESE BLACKFINS FOR A YEAR AND A HALF, AND I AM SENDING THEM IN FOR THE 3RD TIME! I currently own 5 pairs of Costas (many more over my lifetime) and I have not had any problems with the other 4. I do not keep them in my car, I have not used anything other than water to clean them. There is clearly a problem with the design, or it was someone's first day on the job assembling them. I am extremely disappointed in this frame. Unfortunately for me these are my favorite fishing glasses they fit me very well, so I feel stuck. With the cost related to shipping, shipping insurance, and what Costa charges to do warranty repair I could have bought a new pair of glasses. I sincerely hope this is not a sign of what Costa Del Mar has become. Unless they fix the design, or craftsmanship of this frame - DO NOT BUY!

      Defective within 1 month

      Comments about Costa Blackfin UVA and UVA Protection Polarized Sunglasses:

      I purchased my Blackfins based on the recommendation of a local sports store. They raved about the durability and quality of this particular model. Mine have been anything but that. Every part of my glasses are showing defects. The rubber under the eye piece and by the hinge has separated. The wood looking finish is wearing/disappearing from the frame. The arms also looses up quickly. I thought this was a loose screw until I attempted to tighten it. I discovered the screw used to attach the arm to the frame is bent. The arm is now pushed out slightly from it's original position almost to the point of losing all contour and now straight. And the worst part is the lenses. I have not cleaned them with abrasive materials, used or hit them on anything and only cleaned them with the cleaning cloth and the lenses are scratched. They also appear to be losing clarity and get a film that looks like oil covering the lense that is next to impossible to clean. I am very picky with my glasses and as a result handle them very carefully. They do not stay in my vehicle and if I am not wearing them they are in the hard case. This is my first pair of Costas and may be my last. I wanted to love these but can't get over that they have been the worst preforming glasses I have owned. I can not justify paying shipping, shipping insurance, and at a minimum a processing fee to repair a pair of glasses that cost as much as these. Very disappointed with quality and durability.

      AWESOME GLASSES...CHEAP RUBBER

      Comments about Costa Blackfin UVA and UVA Protection Polarized Sunglasses:

      I have had these Blackfins for about a year now and love them. They fit great and feel great as well. However the rubber piece that goes around the bottom of the lenses is coming off and quite frankly is annoying. I hate the fact that I'm going to have to go without any glasses to send these of for repair. All in all..they are a good set of glasses minus the rubber lining.

      Great glass but not great frames

      By 

      from Florida, United States

      Comments about Costa Blackfin UVA and UVA Protection Polarized Sunglasses:

      Purchased the blackfins in April of 2013. Live in Florida, work and play outside all year. Loved the clarity but after a year or so the rubber on the frames started peeling off. I removed the rubber so I could wear the glasses until they slipped off and broke one of the glass lenses (obviously because of the rubber coming off). I've heard they upgraded the frames but nervous to purchase another pair. Again. Love the lenses but frames need some quality control.

      Just got these a couple weeks ago with blue glass and absolutely love them. I use them for fishing and it's incredible how clear everything looks and how much better my depth visibility is in the water.

      Got these as a xmas present to myself. The fit is very good, and the quality/vision on the glass lenses is amazing. I got the green mirror ones for fishing, haven't bee out on the water yet, but they are great for driving and general use too. Well worth the price.

      I have always used copper lenses and this time I decided to go blue. And it's fantastic. Looks great from the inside and the outside. Great product. Thank you!
