Named for the California bay that some of the largest sharks in the world are known to frequent, Costa® OCEARCH® Half Moon 580G Polarized Sunglasses sport a West Coast-inspired beach style that rides the mystique of epic ocean swells. 580G polarized lenses are made from LightWAVE® glass to provide 100% UV protection plus unmatched clarity, contrast, and definition. Costa 580 technology takes lens performance to new heights by eliminating glare from yellow light and boosting red, blue, and green—resulting in deeper colors and sharper contrast. For a better fit, the durable frame is outfitted with Hydrolite nose pads, straight temples, double-cut textures, and integrated spring hinges.
So why this partnership? Costa and OCEARCH have joined forces to create these limited edition shades for an important reason. Sharks are in trouble, and without them the ocean ecosystem could collapse. Your purchase helps fund research expeditions aboard OCEARCH, a marine vessel and at-sea laboratory that generates critical data and puts science on the side of sharks. The Costa OCEARCH Caballito 580G Polarized Sunglasses Kit comes with Caballito sunglasses, a case, a cleaning cloth, and a C-Mask to safeguard your face and neck. Limited lifetime warranty. Imported.
