Rated 3 out of 5 by from Kinda let down... These seem much darker than what appears on website. These were an exchange due to the fact my Man O War's were discontinued. I think I would of rather chose white frames. These frames appear greenish to me like algae.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceeded my expectations! I bought a pair of Caballito with the green mirror glass lenses before a recent surfing/fishing trip to Hawaii. I have owned and still own numerous pairs of other brand polarized lens sunglasses and I have to say, Costa is pretty amazing. The clarity and sharpness is really outstanding. I have each of my family and friends try it for themselves because I am so impressed and they end up being impressed too. I have only had these for several weeks, so I can't yet attest to long term durability, but they took a toll on my trip and there are no scratches to speak of. I can't wait to get my next pair!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Imperfect mold or fittings This is my second pair of these glasses, and both pairs had problems with the alignment of the ear pieces which, when fully open, flare out wider on the left side than on the right. This ends up causing an uneven fit and an awkward feel. Either the lens frame mold is out of alignment, or the the earpiece screw holes are drilled off.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed with Quality and Customer Service I purchased the original pair about two years ago. The shiny black coating on the frames flaked off and the lenses had a chip in them. I shipped them back and had the frames replaced but the lenses would cost $70.00 to replace. This was the first time that COSTA had not just repaired/replaced a pair for no cost. This pair came back from COSTA and within 5 months the black coating was flaking off the frames again. I have owned COSTAs for about 10 years now but seems like the quality as of late has been pretty poor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit and style. I bought these for my boyfriend for Christmas and he loves them. He had a smaller face and this frame fits just perfectly. They keep the light out and the 580 lenses make everything sharper and more vibrant. I borrow them from time to time!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kenny Chesney Limited Edition Midnight Caballito I bought these last summer when Kenny Chesney had his limited edition set out. I have the Midnight frame with 580p silver mirror lenses. These glasses work great for hunting,fishing, and straight up beachin! Definitely buying from Costa again

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Many Problems!! I have had these glasses for about 2 years and have had to return them twice due to the frames breaking and cracking along with the hinge points rusting from the salt water while fishing. These are not a very good quality frame, but Costa is very good at standing by their product and replacing them when they fail. Good lenses though.
