No Howler worries.
When you spend your morning sport-fishing and you afternoon trekking around the jungle, the last thing you want to worry about is whether your sunglasses are up to par. Let us suggest the Costa Del Mar Howler Polarized Sunglasses with Costa 580 Glass Lenses. The 580 lenses use LightWave glass that’s 22% lighter and 20% thinner than regular glass, and that still exceeds federal standards for impact-resistance strength. Polarization cuts glare while the hand-built nylon frame rests comfortably on your face.

Tried to find some Costas with frames I liked by going to some top local places. Their selections were not that big. I took a shot with Backcountry. The Howler frames in coconut fade have the look I wanted. Not too oversized industrial. Just a good looking set of shades that work everywhere. I was in need of a little extra help after the sale, and the people at Backcountry came through with good old fashioned professional customer service. I was treating myself to a top shelf pair of shades before my 1st trip to Hawaii. The thing to be aware of, the lenses really are glass, they will break. My 1st day there, exhausted from the flight, I laid down to get a photo of waves crashing against the rocks across an inlet. My new sunglasses, one earpiece hanging conveniently in my front pocket, came up shattered. The glasses were ruined. My vacation wasn't. They will be repaired. Laugh and learn from my mistake.
Costa Del Mar Howler
From the moment I opened the box and put them on I felt like they were custom made for my face. These frames are very comfortable and the lenses are SICK! I can honestly say that I can see clearer and with less eye strain than any other sunglasses have ever provided. You can wear these sunglasses all day without fatigue and the glass lenses are not heavy at all. I would recomend these Costa's to anyone looking for the ultimate in clearity from an optical quality lens.
