“It’s our 30th anniversary in 2013, and we’re pulling out all the stops to celebrate,” said Chas MacDonald, president of Costa. “We’ll introduce 13 new styles, including these three new performance sunglasses. We’ll launch 15 new frame colors, like blackout and Realtree AP camo, and several translucent hues. We’re increasing our Rx sun lens capacity and expanding our apparel line. 2013 is shaping up to be Costa’s biggest year yet.”

The glasses feature front frame vents to alleviate lens fogging, as well as a no-slip interior lining to keep the sunglasses comfortably in place all day. Tuna Alley is available in tortoise, matte black, white, crystal and the new blackout frame colors. They also come in the full spectrum of patented Costa 580 lenses and retails starting at $169.
Saltbreak provides a large-frame fit with performance features such as a no-slip interior lining and temple tips for a “forget-they’re-on” fit. It’s available in tortoise, matte black, silver, white and the new blackout frame colors, and retails starting at $179.
The Cat Cay frames are named for the small Bahamian island adjacent to Bimini, and the birthplace of bluefin tuna fishing. These sunglasses combine superior performance and value, starting at $129. They feature front frame vents to alleviate lens fogging, no-slip nose pads, and include an open slot in the sunglass arms to attach a gripper retainer cord. The Cat Cay is available in tortoise, shiny black, and the new blackout and sky frame colors.
Each of the new styles is part of Costa’s core performance sunglass category, with signature features such as a co-molded injected nylon frame construction, sturdy integral hinges and a lifetime warranty against manufacturer’s defects.
All Costa sunglasses are 100-percent polarized, and protect against harmful UVA and UVB rays. Its patented 580 lens technology offers unparalleled polarization and razor-sharp clarity by blocking yellow light at the 580 nanometer from entering the eye. Costa’s 580 lenses are available in optically ground glass (580G) or super lightweight, impact-resistant polycarbonate (580P). Lens colors include gray, copper, amber, sunrise, and blue, green and silver mirror.
Tuna Alley, Saltbreak and Cat Cay are also available with Costa’s authentic prescription (Rx) sun lenses, creating the sharpest, most clear Rx sunglasses available on the market today. Costa’s Rx sunglasses come with a one-year warranty.
