Great Fit & Amazing Comfort
Sometimes, a small break in the shoreline is just the right place to wait for fish to come through. And when you’re wearing these classically-styled sunglasses, made of a tough nylon and featuring integral hinges, it’s a heck of a lot easier to put your line right where you want it.
Costa’s co-injected bio-based nylon frame material is both tough and durable, while offering a comfortable fit. TR-90 nylon is a premier material for sports and performance frames as it is resistant to heat and cold. Though it is flexible, it is still durable. Nylon is easily molded into Costa’s iconic wraparound shape.

580G – Lightwave Glass
Costa’s most high tech lens – glass provides the most superior clarity. Costa’s encapsulated mirrors (between layers of the glass) are scratch-proof. Costa’s glass lens is 20% thinner and 22% lighter than the industry’s average polarized glass lens while still blocking 99.9% of glare.
580P – Polycarbonate
Polycarbonate is the lightest and most durable lens material option. Providing high clarity, impact resistance and light weight all day wear-ability. The C-WALL molecular bonded mirrors provide the most scratch-resistant and smudge-free barrier, repelling water, oil, and sweat for easier cleaning.
Polarized lenses are essential for anyone who spends time outdoors – especially on the water. But, not all polarized sunglasses are created equal. Costa is 99.9% polarized, providing the best efficiency available so that reflective glare is blocked-reducing eye strain and headaches.
Costa’s mirrors are more than an aesthetic and a necessity in harsh sunlight. Made through a high-tech ion beam deposition process, these multilayered thin film coatings make for the most scratch-resistant mirrors out there.
