Glass 580 Lenses

580 G lenses are lightwave glass lenses that provide superior clarity and are scratch resistant. The mirrors are actually encapsulated, meaning they are between the glass layers making them scratch-proof. In the lens process, Costa puts the glass on last. This prevents any sea-salt corrosion and makes the lens very hard to scratch. 580 G is 20% thinner and 22% more light than the average polarized glass.

Hydrolite Nose Pads & Temples

Uniquely Costa fuses the hydrolite onto the frame. If glasses are glued, the heat can sometimes cause problems. This is why Costa fuses their frames together, making their sunglasses last long and built stronger. Hydrolite Rubber is used on the sunglasses comfort spots, aka the nose pads and temples. Hydrolite is a hypoallergenic rubber that will prevent any slippage making sure the sunglasses will stay in place during movements. Even if it's a very hot day and you're sweating a lot, the glasses will actually have a better grip to stay in place.


Don't forget the importance of quality hinges. Costa corrosion-resistant and stainless steel hinges are extremely flexible. Costa hinges will retain their shape and give you a perfect fit to your face. The three types of hinges are Integral, optical spring, and five-barrel optical.
