Ballast Readers

Product Information

DETAILS

You know that feeling you get when you've been wearing sunglasses all day? Well, forget it. This member of our super-light frame-less collection weighs in at a feathery 16 grams. And with TR90 nylon Ballast is as durable as it is comfortable. Top it all off with Costa's premium lenses, and you've got a pair of sunglasses that's at home in, on, and around the water.


C-MATES Sunglass Readers: the lenses that help you see the small stuff- from tying a fly to reading a map- will no longer have a visible line around the front of the bifocal area. You can also now get them in the superior 580 technology you've come to expect from Costa sunglasses. Many new styles are available for 2015, and we've added a third power range of +2.00 that fits in nicely between the +1.50 and the +2.50.

RATINGS & REVIEWS

BALLAST READERS is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 17.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect fit I bought these 6 months ago because I wanted something lighter on my face for work. They are awesome! Everything I love from Costa in a small light package. This is my fourth pair of glasses and the ballast are my favorite so far for using everyday as a mailman.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for fishing Finally I have a pair of Costas that are also readers. They have the perfect amount of magnified lens at the bottom that does not interfere with my distance vision, yet I can tie fishing line without removing them and switching to my readers.
