With a name like Maui Jim it's not hard to see how they started on pool decks in Maui, Hawaii. With a start in such an exotic location, with the sun glaring off waves of the Pacific you can expect the them to be a leading brand in UV protection and anti-glare lenses. And they don't disappoint. Key among this protection is the PolarizedPlus2 lens technology.
Maui Jim have developed a special patented polarised lens system called PolarizedPlus2 that protects against three different types of glare: direct, reflected and bounce back. Not only that they are designed to block 99.9% of all glare and, for complete protection, they block 100% of harmful UV rays. This gives you a comfortable set of sunglasses that help reduce eye-strain and keep your eyes protected. All of this is achieved without image distortion to give you a clear image with brighter, more intense colours.
All of this polarisation technology is included on the range of lenses provided by Maui Jim, and they offer more than one type of lens to give you complete control over your sunglasses.
Superthin lenses are glass lenses that are ideal for driving as they offer durability and superior optics. These lenses are 20% lighter than conventional glass lenses and offer Clearshell technology which is a scratch resistant coating to keep them in perfect condition.
Polycarbonate lenses are the perfect companion to an active lifestyle. They're lightweight, durable, impact resistant and offer the Clearshell scratch resistant coating.
Finally, there is the Maui Evolution and as the name suggests it is the evolution of all of Maui Jim's lens technology. It offers the ultra lightweight and impact resistance attributes of the polycarbonate lenses and the superior optics of the Superthin lenses in one package.
The newest addition to lenses range from Maui Jim is the MauiGradient which features a gradient effect to the lenses that is darker at the top and progressively gets lighter as it moves down the lenses. This is to provide more protection in the vital areas of your eye but allows light to filter through in other areas to give you the clearest view possible.
Maui Jim provides frames in a classic nylon material and also offers full metal frames, with plenty of styles in both materials. There are also the shield wraps that provide extra coverage around the temple to provide the greatest possible protection when you need it. To offer the greatest flexibility and comfort, Maui Jim created the Maui Flex frame. The Maui Flex frames are created from proprietary metal that has a memory of the shape of your face and your fit so it can easily flex to the most comfortable position for your face every time you wear them.
Maui Jim sunglasses offer a great, versatile range that is good for the active sports person, or the casual driver who needs a clear vision of the road.
