On the road with Maui Jim Sunglasses

As a frequent traveler I always find myself in sunny destinations carrying around at least two different pairs of sunglasses. One pair ends up not offering enough sun protection and the other is usually too dark. This might be because I always tend to pick sunglasses based solely on the styling and fit. I have never given much thought about the lens quality… until now. After trying out some new Maui Jim shades with color enhancing lens technology, my world has literally become a lot more beautiful.

Maui Jim Lens

Maui Jim sunglasses use SuperThin ST Glass which is thinner and lighter than normal glass. The PolarizedPlus2 lens technology combats glare and polarized lenses enhance color, I never really considered polarized or designer sunglasses a worthwhile investment, but the quality of our Maui Jim glasses is clear.

I’ve been wearing these for a week and I’m already never going back. The lenses are so clear and they make such a big difference while driving or working outside. I’ve come to realize premium sunglasses with UV protection belong in every traveler’s bag. After all, when you’re traveling to amazing places, don’t you want to see them clearly?


I think a quality pair of polarized sunglasses might be the best gift idea for frequent travelers. Think about it: headed on a bohemian honeymoon? Sunglasses. Going for a solo hiking adventure through the Andes? Sunglasses. Headed to Canada for some snowshoeing? Sunglasses. You’re welcome for solving your next gift-giving crisis. What better way to help someone enjoy an upcoming trip than by enhancing the view of their destination.

The Sunshine have a lighter tint which is perfect for everyday use and a stylish cat-eye shape for a little flair. The frames are lightweight but sturdy and you don’t need to sacrifice the lens quality for style.


The Hang 10 with SuperThin ST Glass are great for blocking glare from water or snow and are very lightweight and comfortable even after hours of use. The earpieces have a little give for added flexibility.

We’re huge advocates for sun protection and that’s something that should also apply to your eyes. If you’re squinting all day during your beach vacation, it’s time to upgrade your sunglasses and protect your eyesight. Adventurers and style-fans will have no trouble finding frames that suit them, with plenty of styles to choose from; all with advanced lens technology and dependable frames.


I know I’ll get a lot of use out of these Maui Jim’s sunglasses and they are an excellent accessory on any adventure!

    Interesting item, especially for those, like me, having very sensitive eyes. I wonder if I can find them in Italy too. I will go and look at the website 😉

  • I also never thought much about the lenses, I always buy sunglasses that look nice, and suit the shape of my face. aside form thought, not much thought about it – my husband looks into sun protection but I really like these a lot and would be great to get a nice set for the both of us.

      The nice thing about these is you can still find a pair in a style you like so you get the high-quality lenses and the shape that fits your face!

    I live in a warm, sunny climate. I wear sunglasses daily! Polarized, quality lenses are critical.

  • What a good reminder to also be aware of the type of lens and not just the style in glasses. I don’t think I invest enough in eye protection from the sun. What a great set of photographs.

    The quality of lenses are important as always not just about the colour or design of the sunglasses, great post.

  • Back when I could use sunglasses, I went ahead and chose carefully the quality of the lenses and how dark do I need them to be. I can’t have sunglasses only now – as I wear regular glasses – so I have to find combined offers 🙂 The ones you presented in this article look great – stylish and they seem to be high quality:)

      They are great! And they can do most of their lenses as prescription, too!

  • I’m sold! I have two pairs of Ray Bans at present and I do like them, but I like the that these have thin lenses, and also I like the style too!

      I can’t compare the two, but I can say I love these! The frames are super lightweight, too!

  • I like to color, the design, and the technology combines to form these super cool sunglasses!

    August 8, 2016 at 11:27 pm
  • Stylish and effective … nice combo for these shades! Will have to try them soon…
