Daytona Beach, Fla. – Jan. 3, 2012 – The New Year brings new styles to Costa’s collection of performance sunglasses, with Double Haul being first in line to debut. Serious anglers will appreciate Costa’s signature vent system in Double Haul’s frame front to alleviate lens fog in extreme weather conditions, as well full eye coverage to allow full range of vision while on the water.
Double Haul features a large fitting frame with Hydrolite™ no-slip nose pads, sturdy integral hinges and durable co-injected molded temples for a comfortable “forget-they’re-on” fit. The new style is available in tortoise, black and the new translucent crystal frame colors.
Anglers can customize Double Haul in Costa’s patented 580™ lenses in either glass or polycarbonate (580P). Costa’s 580 lenses block yellow light at 580 nanometers on the light spectrum. The result is unparalleled levels of polarization and razor sharp color enhancement, so outdoor enthusiasts can see fish and other objects through the water more clearly. Costa’s 580 lens color options include gray, copper, amber, and blue, green and silver mirror. Double Haul is also available in Costa’s 580 Rx program.
“Costa was born on the water, founded by anglers in 1983. This is the heritage we bring forward into a style like Double Haul – the full eye coverage, the sturdy build of the frame, the unrivaled clarity of our 580 lenses – all of our sunglass technology works together to help anglers see more clearly and comfortably ,” said Chas MacDonald, president of Costa Sunglasses.

For Costa, conservation is all about sustainable fishing. Many fisheries that should be vibrant and healthy are all but devoid of native fish because they have fallen victim to poor fishing practices, unregulated development, lack of watershed protection or all of the above. Costa works with partners around the world to help increase awareness and influence policy so that both the fish and fishermen of tomorrow will have healthy waters to enjoy. Costa encourages others to help in any way they can.
