Costa Del Mar has offered a large selection of quality sunglasses for water sports enthusiasts for over thirty years. Whether you're new to Costa or a loyal customer, you want to find the right sunglasses. But if the finer points of Angler and Voyager are throwing you off for these two seemingly identical frames, read on, and you'll be a Costa Fantail and Caballito expert in no time.

Costa Fantail

Tried and true, the Costa Fantail belongs to the Angler line, the hardcore pieces in Costa's catalog. These frames are designed to meet the demands of fishermen who rely on their eyewear for performance. We reviewed the product before, and believe the Fantail is an excellent choice for any serious fishermen.


  • Extra tough TR-90 nylon frame for incredible fit and comfort
  • Hydrolite along the temples and entire nose
  • Choose either 580P or 580G lenses for superior UV blockage and clarity

Costa Caballito

Now the Costa Caballito belongs to the Voyager line, lifestyle pieces with performance utility. Voyager frames are perfect for spontaneous excursions, because fun comes in so many shapes. Lay back to soak up the sun and then play some volleyball on the beach, Voyagers will keep you looking stylish until the sun goes down. We love the beach look of the Caballito, and its metal accents are a nice touch to the finish on these frames. Pick these up if your idea of fun is being out in the sun.


  • Co-molded bioresin frame
  • Droplet accents on temple tips for increased grip
  • Wraparound style for snug fit

Who Wins Costa Fantail vs Costa Caballito?

It depends on your lifestyle. Both frames feature the same Costa technologies, but the measure of Hydrolite is different. Anglers on extended trips should opt for the Fantail, hands-down. The added rubberized material on the frame makes all the difference when it's time to perform. If you don't need the extra grip, both sunglasses are an excellent choice. Find your favorite colored frame with 580P or 580G polarized lens and hit the beach.
