The fantail is a hardy yet elegant fish, much like these Fantail Sunglasses from COSTA. 

These heavy-duty TR 90 nylon frames are a bit smaller, but definitely akin to the timeless styling of Costa's classic Blackfin® frames. A comfortable snug fit that won't fall off when waters get rougher means the Fantail Sunglasses are ideal for kayaking, fishing, sailing, or any comparable land-based activity. Premium 580 glass lenses are the clearest and most scratch resistant of the COSTA line, and always 100% polarized with 100% UV light blockage to reduce glare and protect your eyes from harmful rays.

Features

  • Comfortable medium fit.
  • Integral hinge.
  • Heavy-duty TR 90 nylon frames.
  • Includes hard case.
  • 100% UV light blockage for max protection.
  • 100% polarization kills reflected glare and reduces eye strain.
  • Built by hand and backed for life. Every pair of Costa Sunglasses includes a limited lifetime warranty.
  • Glass lenses have the greatest clarity and are scratch resistant.
  • Prescription ready.

I bought these a couple days ago with a friend, and couldn't be happier with my purchase. I got the fintail and my friend got the aviator line. Both are extremely comfortable and look great on. I do a lot of kayaking and fishing and was looking for a pair of sunglasses with great polarized lens and and a snug fit so the glasses won't fall off on rapid river's. Cheers to a great pair of glasses!

Let me start by saying the 580g lenses are great and the glasses are comfortable. I do have a large problem with the product though. The rubber on the glasses is the Achilles heel of the product. I sent my glasses back for repair after one year of ownership and they sent me new frames. Less than a year later my glasses are doing the same thing. I do not feel that I should have to pay them to look at my glasses and I don't feel as if i should have to pay for shipping either. These glasses are expensive. I paid up front for a good product and do not feel like I should have to pay for them yearly and be without them for a month at a time. I would greatly advise you to steer clear of these glasses.

Product Defect w Co-Molding

By ryan32808

from Orlando, FL, United States

Comments about Costa Fantail Sunglasses with 580G Polarized Lenses:

First, let me say i will never buy any other brand of sunglasses after having owned several pairs of Costas. They are simply the best. With that said, i write this review in the hope that CDM will take note that there is a problem with the adhesive or whatever method they use for the co-molding process. In full disclosure, i have owned these for 4 years and this is the first time that it has become separated. However, many reviews seem to indicate this is a problem. i especially concur with doctorsus review.

Comfort, Style, & Functionality

Comments about Costa Fantail Sunglasses with 580G Polarized Lenses:

The clarity of the lenses is unmatched with any pair of glasses I have ever owned. The frames provide all day comfort and the hinges seem very durable. The price tag is steep but the quality and life time warranty make this an excellent purchase.

    These sunglasses are great the lenses are extremely scratch resistant and the glasses are overall very durable. I decided I needed a new pair after my last pair I had for over 3 years finally broke when I sat a kayak on top of them. I love the brand and highly recommend the 580 Glass lenses.

    I now have three pair of Costa. Living in Florida, and working outside, these Costa hold up year after year. Would highly recommend them to anyone who wants a first glass product.
