Costa Fantail

Each time the Fantail has stood up to the competition, because the Costa Fantail is a great pair of sunglasses. All anglers depend on their equipment, and the Fantail is built to perform.

So Costa Fantail or Costa Tuna Alley?

Both Costa Fantail and Tuna Alley are designed for the rigors of angling. Yet, there are three key differences. First, sizing. The Costa Tuna Alley is larger than the Fantail, and is designed for a larger fit. But not so fast, the Tuna Alley is not just a larger frame. The Tuna Alley has small details that give it a more aggressive appearance. Case in point, the vents on the face of the frame. These functional accents and the angular lens set the Tuna Alley apart from the Fantail, which has a rounder look. If you want the added details for performance, grab the Tuna Alley. For a more lifestyle piece, choose the Fantail.
