CABALLITO is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 148.
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 4 out of 5 by from 4th pair I've owned this model for the past few years because it's the only plastic frame glasses that fit my flat Asian face. The older versions fit better, but the newer ones fit alright with the help of some nose pads I found off of amazon. I prefer the plastic lenses to the glass since they seem just as clear and much lighter. I have/had the blue, green and brown lenses, and the blue/green are my favorite. Marginal difference. Costa has the best repair service as well. The spray sunscreen tends to eat-up the plastic frames so try not to use that type on your face. -1 star due to fit issue but I have a workaround.
