The lens that built a brand, Costa Del Mar exists as it does today because of the breakthrough 400G lenses. Costa was founded 30 years ago by a group of fishermen who were dedicated to develop the best pair of fishing sunglasses that they could.
Dedication is the keyword. To be a great angler, one must be dedicated. Whether wading through a freezing mountain stream, canoeing out into the water to find the best spot you can or flying across the world just to have a chance of catching a fish where no one has caught one before. Why settle for a brand that is any less dedicated?
Costa Del Mar's 400G Sunglasses are made with LightWAVE™ glass which is 20% thinner and 22% lighter than average polarised glass without giving up any of its clarity or durability, whilst also being 100% polarised and protecting against 100% of UV A/B/C light.
Costa lenses were manufactured to combat the enemy of yellow light and cut glare which allows the eye to see more red, blue and green light which improves vision as the harmful light is blocked from your eyes

- Co-injected TR-90 nylon frame material is tough and durable. Nylon is fused together with Hydrolite™ which is Costa's own hypo-allergenic rubber which prevents slippage and aids comfort.
- Wire Core temples provide stability and durability whilst remaining easily adjustable.
- Use of corrosion resistant alloy Monel® in hinges and frames prevents corrosion.
