BD’s Fathers’ Day Wish List

1Costa – BDs Fathers Day Wish List

Costa continues its tradition of creating the most fully functional fishing glasses with its latest style, the Cortez. Built for fishermen, these frames offer innovative features like the linear venting system, which allows air in to prevent fogging, while the wrap-around frame keeps the light out. The temple tips have open slots so that you can easily attach a retainer cord. Of course these frames hold Costa’s premium lenses with 580 technology that selectively filters out the harmful UV blue light and harsh yellow elements for enhanced contrast and definition, while cutting down glare and eye fatigue.

So help Dad see more fish with a new pair of Costa sunglasses. Looks, fit and function make Costa glasses the total package.

2- Aftco

The hood protects your head and neck from the sun and helps with the bugs too.
