Fantail by Costa Del Mar

On June 28, 2011, in Eyewear, by Ryan & Ben

When it comes to a beach trip, one thing you can never mess around with is the sun.  Not only is sunscreen a necessity to protect your skin, a high quality pair of sunglasses is a must if you are planning on spending time at the beach.  With the sun reflecting off of the water and the sand, your eyes tend to take a beating unless they are well protected.  While function should take precedence over form when it comes to eye protection, many of us tend to worry more about what our glasses look like than how well they protect.  The Fantail ($149 – $249) from Costa Del Mar is a fantastic example of a pair of sunglasses that look great and keep the sun at bay all at once.

If the Fantail looks familiar, that is probably because it is similar to a classic Costa frame, the Blackfin.  With a co-molded frame, the Fantail has a relatively low profile, yet still provides a bit of wraparound coverage that is an absolute necessity for a day at the beach.  Whether you are looking for a sporty matte black frame, or a more stylish shiny tortoise, Costa has you covered with the Fantail.  No matter which frame color you choose, the Fantail has 14 lens options, so there should definitely be a pair out there that will suit your eye.  If, for some reason, you can’t find a pair of Fantails that you like, make sure you check out the rest of Costa’s offerings.  With decades of experience making glasses for sailors and fishermen, you will be hard pressed to find something better for a day at the beach.
