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!

Let me start by saying the 580g lenses are great and the glasses are comfortable. I do have a large problem with the product though. The rubber on the glasses is the Achilles heel of the product. I sent my glasses back for repair after one year of ownership and they sent me new frames. Less than a year later my glasses are doing the same thing. I do not feel that I should have to pay them to look at my glasses and I don't feel as if i should have to pay for shipping either. These glasses are expensive. I paid up front for a good product and do not feel like I should have to pay for them yearly and be without them for a month at a time. I would greatly advise you to steer clear of these glasses.

Comments about Costa Fantail Sunglasses:

Sturdy, good looking, comfortable, and great image definition. What else could you want? I would recommend glass lenses instead of plastic though.

I am in the process of sending back my Fantail for the 2nd time in 2 years. Nose piece comes off. Is a known fact. May have to stop recommending costas and try a different company.

The nose pad defect

By Dwayne 2192

from Warner Robins, GA, United States

Comments about Costa Fantail Sunglasses:

Hey guys I bought a the fintails about year ago I love them. I also had the nose pad come unglued so I just sent them in a 2 or 3 weeks ago and still haven't received them but I called Costa and they said they have had a lot of those defects so they changed the design of the nose pad whether that works or not I don't know we'll have to see.

don't buy unless u want to send back every year

By JCeezer

Comments about Costa Fantail Sunglasses:

I've had to send these back for the third time. the rubber inside keeps coming off. paid way too much for these things to fall apart on me. Wish Costa would refund me or give me a pair that will last.

Product Defect w Co-Molding

By ryan32808

from Orlando, FL, United States

Comments about Costa Fantail Sunglasses:

First, let me say i will never buy any other brand of sunglasses after having owned several pairs of Costas. They are simply the best. With that said, i write this review in the hope that CDM will take note that there is a problem with the adhesive or whatever method they use for the co-molding process. In full disclosure, i have owned these for 4 years and this is the first time that it has become separated. However, many reviews seem to indicate this is a problem. i especially concur with doctorsus review.

I originally bought them for my birthday unfortunately about 10 days ago someone stole them but I love every aspect of them would recommend them to anyone! Being in the military I guess I should have kept a closer eye on them. Very lightweight
