Costa has added Realtree® Xtra® camo to several of its most popular styles of fishing sunglasses.

Costa has announced the addition of its new frame colour, Realtree® Xtra® camo, to select sunglass styles, hats and other gear.

The Daytona Beach, Florida, sunglasses manufacturer says that while the camo pattern blends perfectly year round in a variety of habitats, it does so best from the leaf change of fall through winter and then again in early spring before ‘green-out’.

The Realtree Xtra camo pattern was created through a patented printing technology and is offered in several of Costa’s most popular premium performance sunglasses, including Blackfin, Fantail, Fisch, Hamlin and Zane. These styles are made from nearly indestructible co-injected moulded nylon material and offer a large wrap shape to protect from incoming backlight glare.

Other features include proprietary hypoallergenic Hydrolite™ interior lining and temple tips to prevent slippage, frame vents to alleviate fogging (Fisch and Zane) and sturdy integral hinge technology. The Realtree Xtra styles also showcase Costa’s ‘C’ logo.

All Costa sunglasses can be customised in its full array of patented colour enhancing polarised 580™ lenses which features technology that selectively filters out harsh yellow and harmful high-energy ultraviolet blue light. Filtering yellow light enhances reds, blues and greens and produces better contrast and definition while reducing glare and eye fatigue. Absorbing high-energy blue light cuts haze, producing greater visual clarity and sharpness.

Costa’s 580™ lenses are available in either glass or impact-resistant polycarbonate. Lens colour options include Grey, Copper, Amber, Sunrise, Blue Mirror, Green Mirror and Silver Mirror.

The pattern is also available in a mesh trucker hat and other gear, including keepers, retainer cords and lens cloths.

“Our sunglasses are meant to serve as an integral piece of gear in your fishing arsenal,” said Chas MacDonald, President of Costa. “Every element from the 580™ lens technology to the durability and comfort fit of the frames, to the authenticity of the Realtree camo patterns is meant to help you see more clearly and blend more effectively into your outdoor surroundings.”

Costa sunglasses featuring the Realtree Xtra camo pattern start in retail at $179.
