The Backstory

Founded by Fisherman

Costa was founded by a group of fisherman who wanted to stay out on the water longer. They pioneered lens technology that stops the sun in its tracks and increases visibility, engineered hinges that stand up to saltwater and incorporated materials to enhance comfort and keep the frames in place. Every detail on these sunglasses is geared toward comfort and lasting performance.

Style and Performance

Costa frames are polarized, durable and provide 100 percent UV protection. The brand offers a plethora of styles, but here are a few top picks that are perfect for all your water adventures this season.

Lido frames come with top and side shields to help keep the light out, and Hydrolite® nose pads and temple tips to help you bring fish in.

The Reefton are large frames that are the perfect adventure companion when exploring any body of water. Crafted with co-molded temples, Hydrolite™ nose and temple pads and cam action spring hinges, they will stay put as you lean over to reel in your catch.

The Paunch pairs perfectly with textured Hydrolite® rubber nose pads to keep these on-trend frames comfortable on your face. Interior sculpting details draw you out onto the water, just like the boats they’re inspired by.

Designed specifically to be on or near the water, these high-tech glasses will help you take your adventures further.
