Maui Jim is the world’s fastest growing maker of premium polarized sunglasses. The company’s portfolio includes 98 styles in more than 200 SKUs that range from sport performance frames to fashion-forward eyewear, loaded with the most technologically advanced eye protection needed outdoors. The frames have features like lightweight and durable titanium, Grilamid, nylon or acetate frames; Rabalon earpieces and adjustable nose bridges; spring hinges and anti-corrosive hardware; and wrap-around designs for optimal comfort and protection. Maui Jim makes styles for outdoor sports, including ocean and paddling, fitness and endurance, golf, tennis, fishing and marine, as well as everyday activities.
Maui Jim offers four lens materials, including SuperThin(ST) Glass, MauiPure™, Maui Evolution® and polycarbonate. Their lenses come in four colors that are scientifically free of color distortion: Neutral Grey, a color for maximum light reduction; HCL® Bronze, a warm brown lens for everyday activities; Maui HT™, a high-performance, palm green lens that improves definition and depth perception; and Maui Rose, a high-performance, blush-colored lens for maximum contrast. Maui Jim sunglasses meet ANSI, EN and AS standards. Customers are able to identify authentic Maui Jim lenses by the logo in the upper right lens of their glasses.
All Maui Jim sunglass styles and lenses are covered by the company’s standard two-year warranty that is arguably one of the best in the eyewear industry. In the manufacturing process, sunglasses go through up to 22 separate manufacturing steps and are inspected up to six times to ensure quality. Less than one percent of jobs are returned for manufacturing errors. This is the lowest return rate in the industry.
Over the years, Maui Jim has supported worthwhile organizations that focus on everything from cures for breast cancer, support for children with autism and major initiatives that protect the world’s oceans. Ideas for most of the company’s charitable initiatives come from employees who identify areas where Maui Jim can have true impact.
Maui Jim leads the way in the “greening” of the eyewear industry. The lens manufacturing process at Maui Jim produces between 120,000 and 150,000 pounds of waste materials annually, but none of it ends up in landfills. The company custom-designed its system so that all waste is recycled. They were the first ones to have a lab where all fluids and petroleums were reused; and solids were remanufactured into other products. The system is cleaner than conventional lens manufacturing systems
We reviewed the Maui Jim Mavericks aviator sunglasses (£235) which brings classic style with a contemporary twist, featuring PolarizedPlus2® lens technology and MauiGradient lenses. The style has been inspired by open-minded, free spirited adventurers ready to go where others aren’t willing to follow.
No other sunglasses offer the same level of visual acuity, protection and colour enhancement as Maui Jim patented PolarizedPlus® lenses. modern aviator
The modern aviator frame complements smaller to medium faces and a double bridge design has adjustable, non-slip silicone nose pads. The Mavericks we reviewed featured Blue Hawaii lenses which Maui Jim have developed as a fashionable option for top-selling styles. They provide a stylish new look that offers the same amazing colour enhancement and clarity as all other Maui Jim lenses. A blue flash mirror coating is applied to the outside surface of our PolarizedPlus2 Neutral Grey lens, which reduces the amount of light that passes through, eliminates glare and boosts colour.
