I'm done with Costa. The rubber is constantly falling off on my blackfin frames. They do warranty them but I'm tired of sending them in and paying shipping for a product that's just not up to par for the cost. What other sunglasses brands would ya'll recommend these days?

Excellent. Thanks for the insight WAWI. What frame are you using that doesn't have constant quality issues? Do you take them some place to get a religious blessing or just keep them in a climate controlled safe so the rubber doesn't fall off?

Once Costa sold out to Luxottica they ain't been the same. Also goes for Ray-Ban and Oakley. I have switched to Wiley X.

I also switched to Solar Bats, for simliar reasons. cheaper and better quality, lenses seem to be as good as my BlackFin 580gs.

I really like the Solar Bat HP3s. I can help you out on your first pair to try out.

I have fathom Costas. No problems. Maybe your body chemistry is all funked up when you sweat. You may be half alien and don't even know it....

I plan on getting a pair of strike king s11 at some point. I have heard they are good for the price.

I feel like each time I send mine in, they redesign them to have less and less rubber on them, But my Permits have held up surprisingly well over the past 2-3 years. They just fit my face so well I don't see myself looking for another brand.
