TU Field Testers Pick: Costa Half Moon Sunglasses


Recently, I was able to try out the Costa Half Moon sunglasses and they are some of the most comfortable frames I’ve worn. There is nothing worse than frames which either slide down your nose or have your head in a death grip. Costa’s Half Moon avoided such issues, fitting perfectly and staying in place without that headache-inducing pinch.

The polarized lenses, a must on the water, are available in seven different colors for different light conditions. I tried out the blue mirror for open reflective water conditions and it was a perfect fit for flats or lake fishing. I notice and appreciate when a company gives back to environmental causes. And Costa has done just that with their OCEARCH Collection, which includes the Half Moon frame. $249; costadelmar.com.
