Costa Del Mar Sunglasses
Costa sunglasses are some of the highest quality specs on the market today. Sunglasses from Costa are designed specifically for fishermen, constructed to meet the unique needs of their sport. Costa Del Mar sunglasses boast the clearest lenses and most comfortable frames - we can't disagree. Every pair of Costa's are made with quality components, stylish designs and backed by a lifetime warranty. We carry a broad selection of their most popular fishing sunglasses all with their renowned 580 lenses.
In 1983, a group of hardcore fishermen who spent their days exploring the globe and battling extreme elements came to realize that the sunglasses they were relying on weren't as hardcore as their adventures. Seeing the world in absolute clarity and protecting their eyes was a must. So when they couldn't find worthy sunglasses, they decide to build their own. And Costa was born. After all these years and all these adventures, their mission has never wavered: to create the clearest sunglasses on the planet for life's great adventures. And the patented technology like those found only in Costa lenses and frames are proof that they're succeeding.
Costa Del Mar Warranty Details
Costa Del Mar warranty their sunglasses against manufacturing defects for the lifetime of the product...not for a year, but a lifetime.
Since eventual wear and tear can be expected, reasonable repair charges will be levied if repairs are necessary as a result of normal wear, scratched lenses, broken hinges, accidental damage, misuse or any other problems not determined to be a manufacturing defect. Costa Del Mar will repair or replace, at our option, any product determined by Costa Del Mar to be a manufacturer's defect. A processing fee of $9.95 (plus sales tax in FL, TX, NJ, CO, UT, SC, AZ and MI) will be charged for each warranty claim processed.
Prescription Limited Warranty
PRESCRIPTION SUNGLASSES MUST BE RETURNED TO YOUR LOCAL RETAILER OR DISPENSING OPTICIAN WITH PROOF OF PURCHASE.
All Costa Del Mar frames for prescription lenses are warranted for one year from the time of purchase for defects in materials and workmanship, with proof of purchase.
Costa Del Mar provides a repair service for sunglasses that are damaged by accident, normal wear and tear or misuse and are not covered under our lifetime warranty against manufacturer defects. For a nominal fee, and if the parts are still in inventory, Costa Del Mar will repair or replace scratched lenses, frames and other parts as required.

Costa Frame Fit
Sure, a pair of sunglasses might look great, but how do they fit? Our hinges, temples and nose pads are the best in the business. Pushing the limits and rethinking what's possible. This attitude guides how we design our frames and choose the materials we use to make them.
Costa Del Mar Sunglass Components
Wire Core Temples
Wire core temples provide stability and durability that's adjustable with a simple tweak for the perfect fit.
Tough nylon and Hydrolite™ fuse together to make our most hardcore frames. Most makers glue or slip such material together to make a frame, but with Costa's co-injected frames the two materials literally become one. The result is a frame that grips the skin the more you sweat.
Stainless Steel Hinges
Our hinges cost more than some of our competitors' entire frames. They're made of stainless steel so as to resist corrosion. And they're flexible so that they keep their shape and adjust perfectly when worn.
The corrosion-resistant alloy that we use in our metal frames and rimless sunglasses is a super tough material called Monel®. We know that you'll likely spend some time on the water and in humid environments, Monel is up for the challenge.
