Costa Del Mar
1983: Born on the Water
Costa builds the clearest sunglasses on the planet for those who live to be on the water. Born on the water and we're still inspired by it. Costa wants to be on it, to protect it, and to inspire others to do the same.
In 1983, a group of hardcore fishermen who spent their days exploring the globe and battling extreme elements came to realize that the sunglasses they were relying on weren't as hardcore as their adventures. Seeing the world in absolute clarity and protecting their eyes was a must. So when they couldn't find worthy sunglasses, they decide to build their own. And Costa was born.
After all these years and all these adventures, Costa's mission has never wavered: to create the clearest sunglasses on the planet for life's great adventures. And the patented technology like those found only in Costa lenses and frames are proof that they're succeeding.
Whether fishing trout in a mountain stream or watching chains of tarpon crossing sand flats toward your skiff, angling moments completely absorb us and everything else fades away. We might sleep in our truck for days just to catch the hatch just right or fly thousands of miles to fish where none ever has. Meticulous in fly selection, enamored with the fish we pursue and joyful to release them after the catch, Fly anglers go to great lengths to protect the fish and where they live. It is a pursuit made for the eyes and the soul. Now you know why Costa is the sunglass choice for fly fisherman around the world.
