Costa’s New Manta is Designed for Lady Anglers

Daytona Beach, Fla.  Costa is introducing a new style of shades for lady anglers called the Manta. 

Known as graceful, intelligent ocean gliders, manta rays move through the water in with fluid continuity, always searching, always determined. Similarly, Costa’s new sunglass style for active females, Manta, is built for adventure and movement, but full of unmistakable style. 

Manta is one of Costa’s sunglass styles built specifically for active women. Performance features include great wrap-fitting coverage, and hypoallergenic no-slip nose pads and interior lining to keep the sunglasses comfortably in place all day for a “forget-they’re-on” fit.

The medium-fitting frame is constructed of nearly indestructible co-injected molded nylon and sturdy integral hinges. Manta’s frame colors include tortoise, shiny black, white, orchid, crystal bronze and matte ocean.

Costa’s Manta style can be customized in its full array of patented color enhancing polarized 580™ lenses. Costa’s 580 lens technology selectively filters out harsh yellow and harmful high-energy ultraviolet blue light. Filtering yellow light enhances reds, blues and greens, and produces better contrast and definition while reducing glare and eye fatigue. Absorbing high-energy blue light cuts haze, producing greater visual clarity and sharpness.

Costa’s 580™ lenses, the clearest lenses on the planet, are available in either glass or impact resistant polycarbonate. Lens color options include: gray, copper, amber, blue mirror, green mirror and silver mirror. Manta is also available in customized Rx sun lenses.

“We designed the Manta sunglass style for active women who live for the water,” said Chas MacDonald, president of Costa. “The lightweight, form fitting frame combined with the clearest lenses on the planet turn these stylish sunglasses into an indispensable piece of gear suited for any outdoor adventure.”

Manta retails starting at $169 and is available at and at authorized Costa retail partners.
