Born on the sunny beaches of Hawaii in the early 1980s, Maui Jim Sunglasses were born out of need. In this case, the need was for a sunglass that would eliminate the harsh Hawaiian glare without distorting the beautiful colors of the island scenery. Everyone said it was impossible, but after years of research and development, the impossible became a reality and PolarizedPlus® emerged. Maui Jim incorporates a bi-gradient mirror, waterproof coating and an anti-reflective treatment in their lenses. The result: glare is wiped out and colors are stoked!
