Default Any Costa Del Mar experts here?

Wife has had a pair model Vela VL 24 that she broke when closing the car door. Looking to purchase a new comparable pair but not sure what current model matches up. She loves the size color etc. so trying to get as close a match as possible.

Thanks.

Send them in for repair, I have sent in half dozen over the years.

2nd - send them in for repair. Most I have ever paid for a repair was $80 and that is because I shattered one of the glass lenses. I am pretty sure they just sent me a new pair instead of fixing mine.

Send them in if she likes them. Have sent two so far and replaced if they couldn't fix or get to choose a new pair.

Even if he sends them in I too would like to hear from some knowledgeable people on woman's Costa's as I am looking to get a pair for the GF for Valentine's.

Whatever you go with, make sure to go with the 580 lenses

Mine fell off while mowing, and looked similar.

Let Costa worry about how to fix. More important, if they have stock, they will send a new pair, isn't that what she wants, the same style, but new?

If it can't be repaired and they don't have stock, they will tell you what the next closest model is. Just worth a shot if she really likes them, it's what we did for my wife.
