In the how-to video below, Costa’s vice president of product development Ed Moody talks about the differences between a typical offshore blue-mirror lens and a more inshore-specific copper lens. He demonstrates with Costa’s new Tuna Alley sunglasses, which won the ICAST Best of Show award for the eyewear category. Costa offers a wide variety of lens colors besides blue mirror and copper, but Moody offers a concise explanation as to why these two lens colors prove optimal for those highly typical fishing environments.
Here’s a little more about the Tuna Alley:
Costa kicked off its 30th-anniversary year in 2013 by introducing the Tuna Alley frames — among the first of 13 new styles for the year. Tuna Alley ($169) features front vents that help prevent fogging and comes in tortoise, matte black, white, crystal, and blackout. Its wrap-around style helps eliminate any outside glare coming from the water’s surface. Signature Costa features include co-molded, injected nylon construction, sturdy integral hinges and a lifetime warranty. Tuna Alleys are available with the full spectrum of Costa 580 lenses.
