Maui Jim sunglasses are designed for comfort in any outdoor conditionsbut especially on the water. Patented PolarizedPlus2 lens technology ensures you're getting the best view with vivid, boosted colors and improved clarity for crisp vision.
With a mission to create sunglasses with polarized lenses that reduce the sun's harsh glare off the water, Maui Jim has achieved award-winning greatness with their proprietary lens technology. Men's and women’s sunglasses from Maui Jim come standard with patented lens technology and deliver optimal clarity and comfort in any outdoor conditions. The frames come in fashionable and sporty styles for men and women, including aviators, wayfarers, wraparounds, and other distinctive profiles.
Maui Jim makes superior quality sunglasses that block 100 percent of UV rays from reaching the eyes and surrounding skin area, and for this, the sports eyewear brand’s sunglasses hold a Seal of Recommendation from the American Skin Cancer Foundation. To achieve their award-winning status, Maui Jim lenses go through a multi-step process to make them ultra-strong, scratch resistant, and lightweight. First, a Clearshell treatment is applied, which acts as a primer for other applications. Then, an anti-reflective treatment blocks the glare from the back of the lens, and special blue light filters reduce High-Energy Visible Radiation (HEV) rays. Each step in the process elevates Maui Jim's lenses, giving them top-quality durability and crystal clear views you can rely on.
Yes! All Maui Jim sunglasses are polarized with the brand's exclusive PolarizedPlus2® lens technology, with mirrored and gradient options available. When shopping for your next pair of Maui Jim sunglasses, check to make sure you’ve selected the correct tint color and lens type before proceeding with the purchase.
Maui Jim recommends selecting sunglasses that are no more than two millimeters larger than your head size for the closest, most protective fit. If you are unsure of your measurements, follow our guide on how to measure and fit your sunglasses.
Yes. Maui Jim’s SuperThin Glass lenses are made from ultra-thin, lightweight glass, but not all Maui Jim lenses are glass. The renowned sports eyewear brand uses five different materials to make their lenses, including SuperThin Glass, Maui Brilliant, Maui Pure, Maui Pure LT, and Maui Evolution. Each lens type is fully polarized, scratch and shatter resistant, and offers optimal blue/green contrast, with each type excelling in certain areas more than others. Thoroughly review product details and options to make sure you order the correct pair of frames and lenses before making any purchase.
Yes! All types of anglers prefer Maui Jim lenses for fishing in saltwater and freshwater. The high-tech polarization helps minimize glare from the water and provides improved blue/green contrast for better visibility. The brand’s polycarbonate lenses are the most impact resistant of the brand’s offerings, perfect for protecting your eyes while fly fishing, driving the boat, or exploring riverbeds on foot. Lens colors include grey, rose, bronze, and Maui HT—a special hue that allows the highest usable light transmission while enhancing colors and details.
Maui Jim treats all of their lenses with a scratch-resistant hard coat for added durability, and an additional treatment helps repel water and oil from sweat and sunscreen. While Maui Jim uses several different materials to make their lenses, those crafted in polycarbonate are the most impact-resistant. Other options to consider include a bi-gradient mirror that reflects light from above and below—the lenses "squint" so you don't have to—and prescription-ready sunglasses tailored with lenses in your Rx to match your vision needs.
While all Maui Jim sunglasses are built to withstand damage from saltwater, sun, and sand, they do not float. We recommend adding a floating leash or strap to the frames so they don’t sink if they happen to slip off while you’re pulling in lines or reeling in a particularly large catch.
