Costa Pargo Polarized Sunglasses

Clear days on the water are the best for cruising around, and the Costa Pargo Polarized Sunglasses are the ideal companion for both clarity and protection. The shaping offers optimal coverage from the searing sun when we’re on open water and the polarization eliminates glare so we can enjoy the scenic views more clearly. With hooding and side shields, keeper ready temples and Hydrolite rubber the Pargos remain in place even when you pick up the paddling intensity. The design lends us both the style and performance we need on days out where the sun is the only thing that threatens to get in our way. It is also a good for the environment gift, as the frame is made from 97% recycled fishing nets. A win-win. MSRP $226 costadelmar.com
