Gear Envy - Costa Double Haul

Costa Del Mar has begun releasing a few new styles for the new year with the Double Haul starting off 2012 righteously.  The Double Haul is available in three frame color choices and a mix of glass or plastic lenses.  I also like seeing another large diameter frame model with vents on either size to help prevent fogging and enough width to block out light from either side too. 

I have a thing for Costa sunglasses and now that I've figured out the best frame sizes for my face (I am a medium/large to large) it's made choosing the right fit easy.  The recently updated Costa website allows you to compare glasses by frame size which takes the guess work out of figuring what will work best for you.

From the Costa press release...

The New Year brings new styles to Costa’s collection of performance sunglasses, with Double Haul being first in line to debut. Serious anglers will appreciate Costa’s patented vent system in Double Haul’s frame front to alleviate lens fog in extreme weather conditions, as well full eye coverage to allow full range of vision while on the water.

Double Haul features a large fitting frame with Hydrolite™ no-slip nose pads, sturdy integral hinges and durable co-injected molded temples for a comfortable “forget-they’re-on” fit. The new style is available in tortoise, black and the new translucent crystal frame colors.

Anglers can customize Double Haul in Costa’s patented 580™ lenses in either glass or polycarbonate (580P). Costa’s 580 lenses block yellow light at 580 nanometers on the light spectrum. The result is unparalleled levels of polarization and razor sharp color enhancement, so outdoor enthusiasts can see fish and other objects through the water more clearly. Costa’s 580 lens color options include gray, copper, amber, and blue, green and silver mirror. Double Haul is also available in Costa’s 580 Rx program.

I have a trip to Louisiana planned for later this month for redfish and might have to try to score a pair of Double Haul's before leaving.
