I made a rookie mistake and placed my new Costa Corbinas on the boat seat as I was dealing with small crisis on the boat and didn't have time to put them in a "safe place." I'm sure you can guess what happened. Anyway, here is how their warranty reads: Costas are built by hand and backed for life, and if you have a manufacturing defect, the folks in our repair shop will fix them for a warranty processing fee of $11.95 to get you back on the water as soon as possible." Looks like I'm screwed and I have to cough up $139 bucks to get my new/broken Costas replaced. I'm sticking with Costco Hobie or Maui Jim shades after this pair is 86d. Break a pair of those and there are no questions asked.
