Lost my Costas this weekend...
takeoff in a bass tournament and had them wedged between the console and windshield like I've done a hundred times before.... anyway, caught a boat wake just right and they bounced right between the seats and out of the boat running @65 mph.
Don't suppose Costa replaces them, huh?

anyway, looking like I'll be rolling with some $20 Strike Kings from wal-mart for the time being.

I’ve done just fine with these for many years. And I don’t cry if I lose them.

re: Lost my Costas this weekend...
I stopped setting my sunglasses down or using regular straps.

Found a pair of vistas that have a slot drilled in the ear arm that allows me to use a strap that has a clip so the straps can't slide off anymore. Also the strap is super long with a rubber sliding grommet that lets me put the strap around my neck tightens the grommet up to my neck and now they can't fly off forward or backwards.

Not much of a way to lose my sunglasses now

Now is a good time to try another brand. I know this board is a one trick pony when it comes to shades, but there are other brands than costa.

Well spoken. View this as a gift and use this time to upgrade.

These were actually my first pair of Costas. I really liked them but I've liked other brands in the past too.
I've had Solar Bats, 2 pair of WileyX, and another pair that I can't even remember the brand right now.... plus plenty of cheapos.

I really like the Vicious Vision glasses but don't know if I want to drop 2 bills again for shades....

New Orleans Costco? The Hobie glasses look nice!

SunClouds are great and are in the $50 range.

Also good deals to be had on Smith Chromapops on Amazon
