Costa Offers New Sunglasses Built Just for Women

Posted by admin On August - 9 - 2011

We’re not the type of folks who sit back and pine about the good ol’ days before women were really interested in outdoor sports like hunting and fishing. Instead, we’re the type of sportsmen who applaud the growing population of women in the outdoors.

That’s why we think it’s a great idea that companies are starting to take steps to create products directed specifically at outdoor women, like Costa Del Mar and their four new women’s sunglass styles.

The company, which makes incredibly efficient and cool sunglasses and has a catalog that features something for everyone, announced last month the release of the Hammock, Little Harbor, Tippet and Islamorada styles.

Each of the new styles gives outdoors women what they’ve been looking for:  Costa’s premium performance sunglasses with fashionable on trend styling.

“We didn’t take one of our existing frame styles, paint it pink and call it a women’s sunglass,” said Chas MacDonald, president of Costa Sunglasses. “We built four entirely new styles, each with the performance technology Costa’s known for, but specifically designed with the progressive fashion trends happening now and engineered to fit women’s face shapes.”

Costa’s Hammock sunglasses feature a classic big-eye, soft oval shape, in a lightweight nearly indestructible nylon frame. The flexible anti-rocking spring hinges allow the sunglasses to easily stretch to a comfortable fit when worn on the top of the head, where many women wear them when not on their face.

Little Harbor also boasts a bigger eye in a rectangular shape frame.  It’s a medium fitting sunglass with mid-temple placement.

Tippet, the smallest of the four new women’s styles, features an upswept rectangular profile with added fashionable stainless steel “bling” on the temple.  This style provides Costa’s “forget-they’re-on” fit with flexible spring hinges and no-slip Hydrolite nose pads to keep the sunglasses comfortably in place on the face.

To round out the new collection, Islamorada style has a classic butterfly frame shape and full eye coverage, and also sports some temple decoration. It features Costa’s no-slip nose pads and anti-rocking spring hinges for maximum durability and comfort.

All four of Costa’s new women’s styles retail from $149 to $249, depending on lens choice.  All of them have various colors available. Each of the styles are available in Costa’s premium 580 lens technology, which blocks yellow light from entering the eye, eliminating glare while providing an unparalleled level of polarization and razor sharp color enhancement.  They’re also available in Costa’s new 580 Rx program.
