For years, Costa’s polarized sunglasses have been a staple for world-class guides and everyday anglers alike - all around the world. The color brilliance and clarity performance of these patented glasses have earned many fans of both salt and freshwater fishing. With a wide variety of frames and tints, there is a model for every fly fisherman, whether they’re chasing Golden Dorado in Bolivia or Sea Trout on the Baltic Sea.
Santiago sunglasses by Costa are made from sustainably sourced nylon from recycled fishing nets - an innovative idea that helps reduce plastic pollution in the oceans. The stylish, masculine design with textured details and recycled aluminium logos fits almost any head - anytime, anywhere. Thanks to flexible hinges, the pressure of the temples is adjusted to your head shape. And the rubberised nose and temple pads made from PLUSfoam®, another recycled material, ensure a very comfortable and slip-free fit. The patented lenses offer your eyes maximum protection from aggressive UV radiation and reduce light reflections on the water surface, which can tire your eyes.
Sunrise Silver Mirror:
As in all Costa lenses the polarization effect of the ´Sunrise Silver Mirror´ lens color is nothing short of impressive! The yellow tone glass is especially suited for the prime time fishing in dusk and dawn situations. Generally these lenses shine in low light conditions making them the ideal companion for trout fishing in streams where they allow you to locate structures and fish holding close to the bottom. Where other lenses kill to much light the ´Sunrise Silver Mirror´ offers outstanding vision during the evening hatch. Also, the mirror effect makes for great ´Hero-shots´ ;).
580G Glass Lens Material:
The patented 580G lenses are produced with the highest quality, real glass. They outperform plastic lenses in terms of image quality, brilliance, and clarity. They are also 20% thinner and 22% lighter than common polarized lenses. The patented C-WALL® molecular-bonding technology provides the lenses with enormous scratch resistance for long-lasting brilliant optics.

On adh-world we explain how polarized sunglasses work and what to keep in mind when purchasing a new pair.
„Polarized sunglasses play an important role in fly fishing. They not just protect the eye from erred flies or streamers and dangerous uv-radiation, but also reduce glare from the surface and help you spotting fish and reading the water more effectively.“
