Purchased these at the sporting goods isle in the Alhambra, CA Costco this afternoon. Item #1049420 Ho' Okipa model with MSRP $189. Only color available was a dark orange frame (with dark grey lens) so not the best looking color but for $40 for polarized Maui Jims, cheapest I've ever seen them for brand new, and perfect if you just need a pair for running/biking.

Checked with my local CT Costco and they advised that that item # is not a warehouse item. She then did a search for the glasses and said that model was not listed. Where these carded for display? In a box and case?

These were not sold in the optometry dept., but in the sporting goods isle along with other less expensive sunglasses (think there was a pair of cheap Timberlands & recall Nikes were there previously). Included a nice, though heavy, hard sunglass case and cleaning cloth - and the case and the glasses were in plastic packaging that looked specifically made for Costco.

Sorry but maybe its a West Coast or CA specific item - though item ends in .99, not .97 so probably isn't a clearance item and therefore assume would be in at least a few stores.

I bought a couple pair of Maui Jim's at my local Costco a couple years ago. But they were in the optometry dept and were around $100 each. I'd love to find a pair like you got, OP.

Saw them at the same costco. Available in orange and red frames. They feel cheap to me.

Please, folks...the term is 'Aisle'. There are no secluded segments of land amidst a body of water in Costco.

I have never seen the orange frame on these before but have owned the black frame ones for close to 6 years. If they come with the same warranty as all Maui Jim sunglasses, you can have them repaired for $10 including return shipping if they ever break, for life. The unfortunate disclaimer to that warranty is that it does not cover the lenses, but replacement lens prices are pretty reasonable.

After 4 years of taking meticulous care of my original pair, not so much as a scratch on them, my 2 year old daughter got a hold of them when I was in the bathroom. She bent them in half the wrong way and broke the frame, as well as one of the ear pieces. Filled out the online form, included a check for $10 and got them back in about 2 weeks.
