Maui Jim Ho'okipa sunglasses

These are my second pair (I broke the first pair through my own clumsiness).

Anyway, I really like 'em because:

- excellent optics (no distortion, polarized so they cut glare, great colour transmission)
- they're very light
- the rubberized tips keep them in place, even while running in hot weather
- they're very comfortable
- decent sun protection from all angles
- cool-looking but not too "high fashion"

Bear in mind that "scratch resistant" coating doesn't mean "scratch proof", but with normal care they should last a long time. Just don't repeatedly drop them on rocks or in gravel like I did with my old pair.
