In fact, the Costa Corbina is only millimeters larger than the Fantail across four dimensions and has a slightly shorter lens height of .8 mm. From a size perspective, grab the Corbina if you need wider frames. Style-wise, however, the Corbina has wrapping Hydrolite temples that are incredibly flexible. Our full Corbina video review demonstrates how much spring its temples have, and the camouflage frame pops with the black Hydrolite.
