These versatile sunglasses are ready for sand, surf or open water with their polarized polycarbonate lenses.

The Panamanians have a name for a popular baitfish they use—Caballito or "little horse." Anyone who knows horses knows that even little ones are exceptionally strong. Costa's Caballito Polarized Sunglasses embody that character with their extremely durable, heavy-duty TR-90 nylon frames that are made with resin from the castor plant. This bio-based resin offers a 70% reduction in emissions over petroleum-based resin, helping to reduce the overall carbon footprint. 100% polarized, scratch-resistant 580P polycarbonate lenses ensure reflective glare and eye strain is minimized or eliminated altogether. Hydrolite nose pads and flexible integral hinges will keep them firmly on your face whether you're on the hunt for GTs or just a prime spot on the beach. Although, if you want to be extra sure they don't end up in the drink, a neoprene retainer or leash (sold separately) is inexpensive insurance. Blue mirrored lenses are the way to go for offshore use with bright, full sun on open reflective water.
