Differences Between Tasman Sea & Jose

The Tasman Sea is one of the larger fitting Costas with a lot of coverage to protect you from the sun. They tend to fit large to extra-large heads. On the other hand, the Jose is more suited to medium to large heads. Secondly, there is more Hydrolite material in the Jose. Hydrolite is the rubber material that makes the sunglasses comfortable and cozy to wear. The Tasman Sea has Hydrolite material under the nose and along the ends of the temple. Whereas, the Jose has Hydrolite material under the nose, along the frame, and all over the temple. Because it's grip if far superior, the Jose is closer to actual fishing equipment than the Tasman Sea. Another big difference is that the Jose has spring hinges, while the Tasman Sea has pin hinges.
