Costa’s Cortez Sunglasses Rich in Features, Style

Daytona Beach, Fla. – Dec. 9, 2014 – The Sea of Cortez – the body of water separating the Baja Peninsula from the Mexican mainland – has been called the world’s aquarium because of its abundance of marine life. It’s no wonder then this region draws anglers from around the globe to try their hand fishing this rich environment. Drawing from this inspiration, Costa’s new Cortez sunglasses feature rugged performance tools anglers need to spot the fish faster and more clearly, combined with a unique styling.

Costa’s Cortez offers a large fit with a bold wrap shape, meant to block glare from entering from the sides. The linear venting system alleviates lens fogging, and the temple tips feature open slots for a retainer cord.

The frames are built of nearly indestructible co-injected molded nylon, with sturdy integral hinge technology. The hypoallergenic rubberized interior lining and nose pads keep the sunglasses comfortably in place all day, providing a “forget-they’re-on” fit.

Cortez frame color options include blackout, tortoise, shiny black, Realtree® Xtra® camo, crystal bronze, and white with a blue Costa logo.

All Costa sunglasses can be customized in its full array of patented color enhancing polarized 580™ lenses. Costa’s 580 lens technology 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, the clearest lenses on the planet, are available in either glass or impact resistant polycarbonate. Lens color options include: gray, copper, amber, sunrise, blue mirror, green mirror and silver mirror. Cortez is also available in customized Rx sun lenses.

“Anglers who use our sunglasses know they’re going to be able to see the fish faster, and their eyes are going to be more relaxed, even after a full day on the water in harsh conditions,” said Chas MacDonald, president of Costa. “Every element of our sunglasses are built with anglers in mind – and the new Cortez style is a perfect example of our patented performance technology features coming together in an incredible piece of gear for fishermen.”

Cortez starts in retail at $169 and is available at www.costadelmar.com and at authorized Costa retail partners.
