Costa, formerly Costa Del Mar, makes sunglasses for life outdoors. Fishing enthusiasts and adventurers count on the rugged, sporty frames to stand up to hard use, and patented Costa lens technology offers 100% UV protection and glare reduction.
Costa, formerly known as Costa Del Mar, is a leading maker of sunglasses for anglers. Made to meet the rigors of a rugged outdoor lifestyle, Costa sunglasses are in high demand among men and women who spend time on or near the water. Light reflecting off the water during peak sunlight hours can be hard on the eyes, making it difficult to see details. These conditions require specially designed sunglasses. Costa sunglasses are carefully engineered to give anglers the edge they need to land their catch. But these sunglasses aren't just for fishing anymore—stylish frames with versatile performance sun lenses by Costa are ideal for golfing, driving, other outdoor activities—and simply for fashion.
Yes! Costa sunglasses come standard with polarized lenses that filter the wavelengths of light that cause glare, enhancing contrast and allowing for greater depth of vision, especially in water. The brand’s proprietary 580G lens technology improves blue/green contrast for clear, distortionless views. While all of Costa's lenses offer 100% UV protection in a range of tints, we always suggest that you check the specific product details to ensure that they come with the features you are looking for.
Costas are clearly the best fishing sunglasses, which is why we picked the Costa Blackfin Pro as the best fishing sunglasses overall, when comparing all brands. The Blackfin exemplifies Costa’s obsessive attention to detail with its durable plastic construction. In fact, all Costa shades are made in corrosion-resistant materials, including TR-90 nylon, sturdy Monel metal, and even recycled fishing nets. Paired with specialty tinted lenses, they're perfect for fishing—or any outdoor pursuit.
Yes, but it is a limited lifetime warranty. Costa will repair or replace any pair of sunglasses they deem to have defects of manufacturing or craftsmanship for the lifetime of the sunglasses. Costa does not cover damage from normal wear and tear: Scratched or broken lenses, hinges, or frames may be covered by the “Out of Warranty Damage” program. You can find more information on the associated fees with repairs or replacement frames for “Out of Warranty Damage” at www.costadelmar.com or by calling 1-855-MY-COSTA.
No. If you prefer floating sunglasses or are nervous to lose your state-of-the-art frames in the water, it’s easy to add a floating leash or cord. This will keep your Costa sunglasses on the surface should they accidentally slip off while pulling in nets, or get knocked off the boat while you’re landing that record-setting catch.
