Backed for Life: Costa Del Mar Sunglasses Warranty

Every pair of Costa Del Mar sunglasses are backed by a limited lifetime warranty.  If your Costas are damaged due to  defective materials or craftsmanship, then Costa will replace or repair them.  It’s pretty much that simple and that awesome.

Costa charges an $11.95 fee for all claims, and the process is easy and worth it. Costa does not require a receipt, and they make all repairs by hand.  They even back limited edition shades.  If they cannot repair a limited edition pair of sunglasses, and they no longer carry the model, then they will send you a comparable pair.

To send your Costa sunglasses for repairs, simply fill out an online request form, print the shipping label, and send your Costas to the shop. Costa will get back to you with repair options.  We tried it, and it was simple and fast.

Because Costa hand cuts all of their lenses in Florida, they take them very seriously, so if you replace your lenses with non-Costa lenses, then you’re not only incredibly silly, but you’ve also voided the warranty. Oops.

Need a new pair of Costa Del Mar sunglasses but don’t qualify for the warranty?  No problem.  Here are some of our favorite Costa Del Mar sunglasses:

Oakley Frogskins Sunglasses: Own a Piece of History

Big hair: Check.  Leg warmers: Check.  Giant boombox and crushing beats: Check!
Neon Oakley Frogskins: COWABUNGA, Dude!

An icon of 80’s fashion, Frogskins sunglasses put Oakley on the map, making the company one of the world’s top sunglasses manufacturers.  First released in 1985,  Oakley Frogskins became a style staple and made celebrity appearances in music videos, on the red carpet, and on the big screen.  Without compromising performance, Oakley developed a uniquely contagious design that also held up to everyday wear and the revolutionary trends of one of fashion’s most memorable decades.

Since their release over 30 years ago, other manufacturers have imitated the Frogskins’ standout design.

Native Highline
Native Eyewear’s Highline adds a modern twist to the 80’s classic.
Costa Prop
Costa Del Mar’s Prop sunglasses are a contemporary, chic take on Oakley’s original design.
Firedrill
Arnette’s Firedrill sunglasses take on the Frogskins’ iconic shape and bold colors.

Discontinued in the mid 90s, Frogskins made a comeback in 2007 with improved frame, lens, and hinge technology.  More popular than ever, Frogskins are now available in a variety of original and new colors.

Go retro with your own piece of Oakley history.  Check out our collection of Oakley Frogskins sunglasses.
