Product Overview

Like the apex predators they're named after, these sunglasses are fearless when it comes to seeking out prey.

Unless you're at the top of the food chain, the last thing you want to see is a pair Costa Whitetip Polarized Sunglasses on the other end of a fishing line. Even the vent holes next to the lenses convey their aggressive stance. Everything about these sunglasses is focused on improving your view on and around the water. They're extremely durable and reliable thanks to their heavy-duty TR-90 nylon frames 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 580G Lightwave glass lenses ensure reflective glare and eye strain are minimized or eliminated altogether. The Hydrolite nose and temple pads will keep them firmly on your face should the battle heat up. Blue mirrored lenses are the way to go for offshore use with bright, full sun on open reflective water. Green mirrored lenses enhance your vision and provide high contrast for sight fishing in full sun inshore and on the flats.
