|Costa Del Mar, the company that changed the way people see the world outdoors, kicks its sunglass performance technology into even higher gear with two new co-injected models: Blackfin and Permit. Perhaps the most unique part about both Blackfin and Permit is Costa Del Mar’s signature co-injected Hydrolite® rubberized composite compound found lining the sunglasses from one temple tip to the other, as well as the nose pads. The hypoallergenic, lightweight material is naturally adhesive, giving the sunglasses superior fit and grip properties, no matter how extreme the wearer’s adventure becomes.
Besides the no-slip, comfort fit Hydrolite lining, Blackfin and Permit feature a more aggressive, contemporary large eye frame shape. Each touts flexible stainless steel integral hinges and wire core designed to fit the consumer perfectly, providing comfort and stability all day, every day. Permit, similar to Costa Del Mar’s Fathom sunglasses, offers innovative side venting in the frame.
Both Blackfin and Permit are available in nylon frame colors shiny tortoise, matte black and gunmetal, and come in the full array of Costa Del Mar’s 100 percent polarized CR-39 and glass lens technology, including COSTA 400 and the patented 580 mirror and non-mirror options.
“Blackfin and Permit are serious performance sunglasses for today’s extreme adventurers,” said Chas MacDonald, president of Costa Del Mar sunglasses. “Whether you’re skiing black diamonds, shredding waves or catching the big one, Blackfin and Permit have built-in enhancements, like the Hydrolite lining, to let the wearer experience the adventure in a whole new way–and look great while doing it.”
The new sunglasses join other co-injected perennial best sellers from Costa Del Mar, including Fathom, Brine, Stringer, and the new ‘birds of prey’ line featuring Man-o’-War. Available in February, Blackfin and Permit will retail from between $139 to $239.
