Rated 5 out of 5 by from Costa Permit - I can see clearly now Kayaking and fly fishing the Texas coastal flat water and Central Texas rivers. Great for spotting fish on the flats and boulders in the river. Tried lots of other poly lenses, no comparison to the glass lenses in Costa.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great service as usual My pair actually broke, I have had them a while but take very good care of them. Costa has a good warranty but requires sending them in. Since I bought them at Orvis I just went back to the store and walked out with a new pair. Excellence service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Sunglasses Ever! I live in Colorado where the sunshines over 80% of the year. Sunglasses are a MUST, and I have had plenty...Roka, Smith, Maui Jim, etc. When in the Orvis store recently, the sales person showed me their products. He explained the difference between all, but the Costa glasses were glass lenses with a truly great look. I didn't hesitate and very pleased with the decision. The model I chose fits firm at the ears, keeping them on my head during activities, and extremely confortable on the nose with a molded rubber cushion. The model number of the one's I purchased is "CE 16 V3", with lense #580. I highly recommend considering these great looking and super fitting sunglasses.
