Costa Del Mar Blackfin Sunglass Review


Shannon, our fabulous female tester, takes gear testing to a new level for women. When not at work or school, she is most likely training for a marathon, climbing one of Colorado’s tallest peaks, riding her road bike, or skiing down a mountain slope. Like many women, Shannon gets cold easily, therefore, we try to test the best all weather gear to help her stay warm and dry during all day outdoor pursuits. In the warmer months, Shannon enjoys exploring the Colorado backcountry with her friends and dogs and attempts to escape for as many trail runs as her schedule allows. Shannon is a great women’s tester because she gives readers true insight into how a product may perform for an active woman.

    Their warranty is nothing short of hoops for you to jump through. what they call a temple (the arm) broke on mine 3 times at the same place and they charged me. Even the “warranty proccess fee” of $11. would more then cover 95% of repairs.

    I have a pair of $160 Blackfins. After 9 months, the rubber coating is peeling off the bottom of the frames. Their warranty dept told me send in and if they cover it, it will still cost me $12. In my opinion, that’s poor customer service on overpriced sunglasses.

    I was considering buying a pair of costa’s but after reading how there warrantee apears to be nothing more than an advertising gimick I will buy a pair of glasses from some one with a decent customer svc program I don’t beleve I should have to pay for warranty after I pay $200 for a pair of sun glasses

    Great service for me! I had a pair of costas i bought in 1999. A friend of mine broke the arm off around 7 years ago. I put them away and forgot about them. A friend told me costa would cover it under warranty. I sent the discontinued pair to costa and for $11.95 plus shipping they sent me a new pair of blackfins. They stood behind their product and i will always do business with them!
