Costas polarized sunglasses are since many years the choice of professional guides and fly fishers around the world. And that is for a reason! Their patented lens technologies provide extremely brilliant optics and sharp contrasts that will boost your fishing experience in both salt- and freshwater. Costa glasses come in a wide variety of different frame styles and lens colors for everyone to find a perfectly matching pair. No matter the setting or fishing situation!
With 12 different river systems less than an hour's drive from town, it's no wonder New Zealand's Reefton is world-renowned for its freshwater fishing. These size large frames are the perfect companion to explore any body of water and will stay put on larger heads under any condition thanks to their co-molded temples, Hydrolite™ nose and temple pads, and cam action spring hinges.
As is true for all Costa lenses the polarization effect of the ´Green Mirror´ lenses is truly impressive! Costas blue mirrored lenses are highly popular among blue water (open sea) fishermen and for brightest days to block hard sun light. The lenses offer advantageous optics and vastly enhance contrast enabling you to spot cruising fish on bright substrate effortlessly and in time. Not only fish but also interesting structures pop out way more clear and defined compared to other lenses or the naked eye. Back home these green lenses do a great job when fishing the coastlines of the Baltic Sea for sea trout or big lakes for predators such as pike. In general, blue mirror are one of the darkest glasses to fish with.
The patented 580G lenses are produced with highest quality real glass. They outperform plastic ones in terms of imaging quality, brilliance and clarity. Further they are 20% thinner and 22% lighter than common glasses with polarizing effect. The likewise patented molecular-bounding technology C-WALL® provides the lenses with enormous scratch resistance for long lasting brilliant optics.
