Specifically built for anglers, more so than the already fishing-centric line, Costa Del Mar will release the “Double Haul” line in 2012. With features that anglers will appreciate like no-slip nose pads and extremely light design, the double haul series will be available multiple lens options including glass or polycarbonate to accommodate the trout fisherman and bonefish fisherman alike.
Chas MacDonald, president of Costa: “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.”
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. The new style will retail from $179 to $249 depending on lens customization.
