It’s been over a year since we first tried on a pair of Costa Del Mar Tag sunglasses, and we have yet to find another pair of shades that are better suited for a day of activity.  From a day on the boat, to a day at the beach, if we know we’re going to be spending a full day being active in the sun, the Tags are the glasses we grab every single time.  Below, you will find our original post on these fantastic sunglasses, it ran on May 28, 2011.

Other than interacting with our readers, one of the coolest thing about running Bows & Boats has been the ability to interact with some of our favorite brands.  Many times, we reach out to them to ask questions about specific products, but it is always a thrill when they contact us.  After our post about the Costa Del Mar Harpoon, we were pleasantly surprised when Costa reached out to us to ask if we would be interested in testing out a couple of different models.  Already huge fans, and customers, of the brand, how could we say no?  A week or so later, we received a couple of test models, one of which was the Tag ($149 – $249).

The first thing you will notice when you put on the Tag is that they feel like they aren’t even on.  Made for smaller faces, the lightweight, co-molded, frames feel like they are barely there.  Pair that with the fact that they are extremely comfortable, and you will literally forget you are wearing sunglasses.  Available in three frame options (Shiny Tortoise, Matte Black, and Silver) and over a dozen lens styles, there is certainly a Tag for you.  If you are planning on spending your holiday weekend outdoors, and are in need of a new pair of sunglasses, make sure you try on the Tag before making your final decision.
