Costa® Ballast 580 Polarized Sunglasses
Lifetime warranty is dead
Great glasses but Costa does not back it's warranty. I had a broken bridge piece from an unknown cause and they refused to repair the glasses. They must have inadvertently put some notes in with the replacement glasses I had to pay for (discounted but still..) that stated "Approved for Repair" and "Defective Bridge". I called them on this and was told it must be an error. That same person told me he had inspected the glasses personally but two days earlier he told me the glasses had been discarded and he had no way to verify my claim. Believe it or not this senior Costa staffer said "Placing the glasses in your shirt pocket is a misuse of the product and voids the warranty" Huh???

not my first pair of Costa del Mar shades; very light in weight; great for general purpose use/driving.

Very Comfortable Glasses
The Coasta Del Mar sunglasses that were purchased for me for christmas, were the lightest and most comfortable glasses I have ever owned. The quality of the glasses were top notch. Now when I am out in the sun light there is no more squinting while driving. Cannot wait until spring to use them on the water. Thanks for a great pair of glasses.

Ballast Sun Glasses
This is the second pair of Costa's that I have purchased. (Also have a pair of Turbines)
These are super light weight and excellent. Can wear them long hours without the irritation behind the ears that comes with many other sunglasses. Great pair of sunglasses for the money.
