Camo Costas: You See Them, They Don't See You

Just sent the September print edition of FS Magazine off to the press, and in it there's a great story on camouflage for Florida hunters.  Also yesterday updated the Midweek Hunting Gear report for the Web... when suddenly this little new goody came across my console.  Figured I'd post it up for "you to see." Costa's own comments, below. --Jeff Weakley, Editor

This holiday season, Costa Sunglasses has outdoorsmen covered with the introduction of its new RealTree® AP camo line of sunglasses. Available in Costa's popular Fantail, Blackfin, Double Haul and Zane, these limited edition styles are the perfect gift for the avid angler or hunter.

Each of the four Costa styles featuring RealTree AP camo are part of Costa's core sunglass collection – meaning they offer superior wrap shape to protect against glare, proprietary anti-fog vents in the frame front, sturdy integral hinges and nearly indestructible co-injected nylon construction.

The styles are also available in Costa's patented 580™ lens technology. Costa's 100 percent polarized 580™ lenses block yellow light from entering the eye, creating razor sharp color enhancement and superior visual acuity. Lens colors include Costa's new specialty sunrise option, as well as gray, copper, amber, blue mirror, green mirror and silver mirror.

Winner of the American Sportfishing Association's Best Eyewear in 2012 at the International Convention of Allied Sportfishing Trades (ICAST), Costa's 580P sunrise lens is lightweight and impact resistant. More importantly, it allows for maximum light transmission and enhanced depth perception to cut glare and allow anglers and hunters to see more clearly in the early morning or late afternoon prime fishing hours, when outside light is low.

One of the most effective camo patterns available, RealTree AP features lifelike overlapping limbs and hazy background elements for an incredible 3D effect. The natural elements shown including mixed pine and hardwoods to match forests everywhere, and the open light, gray and neutral base colors melt into rocky and open terrain.

Costa's new sunglass styles featuring RealTree AP camo will be available in time for the 2012 holiday season at authorized Costa retail outlets and online at www.costadelmar.com.  Retail prices for these new styles will start at $169.

As the leading manufacturer of the world's clearest polarized performance sunglasses, Costa offers superior lens technology and unparalleled fit and durability.  Still handcrafted today in Florida, Costa creates the highest quality, best performing sunglasses on the planet for outdoor enthusiasts.

For Costa, conservation is all about sustainable fishing.  Many fisheries that should be vibrant and healthy are all but devoid of native fish because they have fallen victim to poor fishing practices, unregulated development, lack of watershed protection or all of the above. Costa works with partners around the world to help increase awareness and influence policy so that both the fish and fishermen of tomorrow will have healthy waters to enjoy.  Costa encourages others to help in any way they can.
