Additional Information

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 my need: Cycling This is my second pair of Costa Sunglasses Readers. I was looking for a lightweight reader sunglasses that I could wear comfortably while road cycling. The copper color is for light/shade conditions which helps transition from full sun to shade conditions as I ride along the roadways. I could not be more pleased. This pair of sunglasses is very lightweight, comfortable, and the color really does provide excellent visibility in full sun/shade as I am riding along.
