Costa Del Mar vs. Maui Jim


I already know the answer...just interested in hearing the OT's opinions on this.

Take into account optics, lens quality, frame quality, and customer service, etc...

I have had both and I much prefer Maui Jim. The lenses are much clearer IMHO.

I've had both 580 Costas and Maui Jim.

Maui Jim.

I thought this was a fighting senario.

I thought a majority of the ill-informed sheep would say Costa.

I bought costas because of the warranty.

Nothing sheep following about it, similar lenses, liked the look of the costas more, and the warranty on the costas is better.

I guess it depends on what you are doing. When I'm in the boat there is not a better lens in the world that the costa's.

I would never leave the house without them! MJ's are nice though, just not as sporty in my opinion.

Not hating on Costa. The 580's are some great lenses, but the optics of the MJ's are better in my opinion. Also, Costa's customer service is a joke compared to Maui Jim's.

Looks like someone needs a grammar lesson, ha. And it really just depends how hard you want to frat. Just got some new costas the other day. Pretty sweet.

Exact opposite in my experience. I have Costas and Mrs Cove had Maui Jims. Mine broke and were replaced, NQA. Hers broke and MJ wanted them sent back at our expense (no prob) then they wanted us to pay $75.00 to have them replace a defective frame with one that they had admittedly redesigned to eliminate the problem. She now has Costas as well. MJ's have great lenses, but I don't care for their frame designs.
