WHAT IS IT?
Costa Fantail PRO
WHAT SETS IT APART?
The widely popular Fantail gets a facelift with technical upgrades that make these pro-level sunglasses even better. The Fantail PRO adds sweat channels and eyewire drains to ensure perspiration never hits the lenses. Other standout features are the vented and fully adjustable nose pads that provide a comfortable fit while minimizing any fogging of the lenses. Frames stay firmly in place with improved Hydrolite grips that keep them from sliding off. Side shields and hooding keep light from leaking in for better vision. Metal keeper slots are more durable for attaching lanyards.
HOW DO I USE IT?
Who would ever think that sunglasses can be considered “technical” with their features? The Fantail PRO fits the bill as the smaller version of its equal, the Blackfin PRO. Like all Costa frames, the Fantail PRO comes in narrow, regular and wide, with most wearers choosing Regular. Available in five lens colors: blue lightwave, copper silver lightwave, green lightwave, polarized and sunrise. Each are designed for specific ranges of light, and you can see how those look in an interactive page on the Costa website. Above all else, Fantails use Costa’s 580G Lightwave Glass, for superior clarity and scratch resistance. The encapsulated mirrors between layers of glass are scratch proof. The lenses are 20% thinner and 22% lighter than average polarized glass. How’s that for technical?
There is a lot to like about the Fantail PRO when compared to the originals. My favorite feature is the all-rubber, fully adjustable nose piece. I set it so the glasses rest above my cheek, which adds comfort and ideal fit. It’s like they were made specifically to fit my face. The new Hyrolite grips keep them in place without any slippage. With the Fantail PRO, you get a technical pair of eyewear for fit and finish, with Costa’s 580G patented glass for clear vision in any light.
