Costa Sunglasses is growing its hybrid category of frames for spring with Mainsail and Aleta for wearing on land and water. 

Mainsail (unisex) gets its name from the mainsail on a sailboat, and Aleta (women) from the Spanish word for fin; both offer a relaxed look and feel with technical features for wearing when out on the water. 

Integrated micro side shields and hooding keep additional light out for improved view, the vented Hydrolite nose pad​ keeps the frames locked in place and helps prevent fogging, sweat management channels and eyewire drains keep sweat out of the eyes, and keeper-ready temples keep the frames in place.

 “Our new hybrid category is our most versatile. It has it all, water-ready performance and a stylish, modern design,” said John Acosta, Costa Sunglasses vice president of marketing NA. “We took the performance features that Costa is famous for and added them to a more relaxed frame shape that is equally comfortable and durable on any adventure.”

Mainsail and Aleta use Costa’s polarized, color-enhancing 580® lens technology for next-level clarity. The scratch-resistant lens cuts haze and blur and enhances key colors for clarity and definition. Built with Bio-Resin, Mainsail and Aleta are lightweight and durable.
