- Polarized lenses reduce glare off the breaking waves

Really wanted to like these
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: Runs large
These are great looking glasses if you have a large head. These would fall off when I bent over and if I put them on top of my head, they would slip off because they are so wide. Perhaps this is why they are called Hammerhead? Make sure you have a wide face and larger than average head or these will not fit you. Had to return them.

great lenses but the frame is not for everyone
The 580 are top of the class lenses but the frame is a bit bulky. Glass lenses are becoming considerably lighter these days but this one still weighty on the nose (maybe thats only my problem). I am still not sure if I could take it for a whole day though you can get used to it.
Be aware of the size (medium to large). Hammerhead differs from Swordfish only with the prolonged shape at the temple otherwise these two glasses are of the same size.
I believe my face is standard. From Costa I may need the large size frame. I keep the Swordfish. Even with sunglasses you could be better off by trying on before you order. (I use glasses only for reading.)
Best use for open water conditions. For driving the copper lens could be a better choice.
I bought the Swordfish for fly fishing. No glare whatsoever. Great look.
Perfect optical clarity, wonderful color enhancements, and a stylish design. I chose these sunglasses (2 pairs) for an upcoming expedition to Antarctica, and believe they will work perfectly. In the meantime, the sunglasses are ideal for life on the beach, kayaking and strutting through the city. Although the description of the sunglasses states that they do not have nose pads, they do. Medium to Large face is accurate. The "Hammerhead" name could describe the slight, square-like shape, as the sunglasses slightly divert from the rounded contour around the face. Although a good looking choice, I worry about the potential sun/wind exposure in the Southern Ocean winter. I would certainly recommend the Hammerhead sunglasses and further caution normal sized adults from buying the child proportioned Rincon style sunglasses that Costa del Mar offers. Picture in Antarctica to come...
Love'em - highly recommended
I have two pairs of Costas now, one pair of Green Tint 400 and now the Copper 580 Hammerheads. I bought them both for inshore flats fishing here in Florida. The Copper 580s cut through the water glare and allow sight fishing with ease.
