Effective & Stylish

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I purchased these sunglasses for the lense technology. Style, fit, and comfort were also important. This product has satisfied me in all of the above. They look great and do an excellent job bringing out the colors (filtering) and reducing glare (polarization). So far so good (1 month). I did not like the internal soft case because it would leave lint, dust or other particles on the lense, so I don't use it anymore. I purchased a generic cloth at the local grocery store for $1 and it by far exceeds the cleaning/polishing performance of the internal soft case provided with these sunglasses. Personally, I insist on having clean and clear lenses all the time and I have found that keeping these sunglasses in that condition requires a bit of effort as the polycarbonate lenses seem to be high maintenance when it comes to keeping them clean. OVERALL, I am quite satisfied with this product. I will note too that I returned the external case (made in china) because it had a defect in the zipper. Backcountry exceeded my expectations with handling the return/exchange.

Amazing!

I love them. These are sports sunglasses with style. They stick on your face no matter what you're doing. I recommend!!!

Light

Fit is great for smallish - medium faces, super light, contrast and color is great. Stays close to my face, I never have to worry about it falling off, even while running hard. Look great too, that's always a plus.

Awesome!

I have been an Oakley sunglass wearer for 15 years. I decided to try Maui Jim's and they are the best sunglasses that I have owned to-date.

Contact Maui Jim. They don't sell replacement parts, but they will fix them for you and the service is warrantied. Much better than taking them to some random shop.

Great for the outdoor actives!

After being a poor and stingy student for so long, I held out before buying a nice pair of polarized lenses. When living in Miami, I really needed a pair of sunglasses that were stylish and funtional at the same time. These sunglasses are lightweight and stay put on your face! which is great for outdoor actives - playing beach volleyball or hiking. They cut glare, and are even great when just driving. After buying these, I can't believe I waited that long! I would not recommend any other pair of sunglasses!

Are these available in bifocal?

Sure are. Maui Jim does the lenses themselves and they're amazing! Quick turn-around too.

Responded on

Yep, and you can buy them right here on Backcountry.com! They come in powers of +1.50 or +2.00 or +2.50 in Brown or Grey lenses. Look for the "Makaha Reader"

Write your question here...Have had a pair of you glasses for about a year and broke them. Can you repair or replace? If so would there be a charge?

Responded on

Get an RMA from Order History, send them back, get refunded, get a new pair. Easy.

Incredible Glasses!

I've had these for about a year and a half. The best glasses I've ever owned. Very lightweight, but sturdy. One day while out biking I tucked them into my shirt, they fell out and landed in cinders underneath the bike and I rode over them. I was sure they would be totally ruined, I actually had to push a cinder out from between the lense and the frame. Incredibly, they weren't even scratched!!! I'll never own anything but Maui Jim from now on.

Better than expected

I am a pilot and I have never owned a pair of polarized sunglasses before. I was worried that the polarization would prevent me from reading the guages but this is not the case at all. Polarized sunglasses turn an LCD screen black but I put these sunglasses on and I can still see my guages. If you are wearing these sunglasses and you tilt your head at about a 45 degree angle, an LCD screen will black out, but when does anyone look at anything with their head tilted this much?
Another great thing about these sunglasses is how light and durable they are. I can wear them all day and not have any sort of discomfort. I mentioned that they are durable because I watched an in store demonstration and the salesman literally bent the part that rests on your ear in half! I would not recommend doing this on a daily basis, but it is nice to know they can bend that much if they are sat on. I have always used cheap sunglasses but I decided that I should buy an expensive pair because you really do get what you pay for (in most cases) and I couldn't be happier with my purchase. I highly recommend these!

Can I have my prescription put in these...

Can I have my prescription put in these lenses?

Responded on

Sure can. Buy them here, take them to an optometrist who deals with Maui Jim and you'll get them back very quickly. I got mine back literally in 4 days from the day I dropped them off.Hope that helps.

Maui Jim Makaha Review

This is actually my second pair of MJ Makaha glasses. I've owned a number of different brands of sunglasses, and without question the Maui Jim's provide the best glare reduction and eye protection on the water. As an avid fisherman, the glare from the water is a big enemy in tracking my prey, and the polarization on these shades cut through it like no other glasses I've owned. The frames are the only reason I replaced the first pair. The lenses held up well, but the frames got loose which caused the mount for one of the lenses to fail, but this was after almost 2 years of use, so in the end, the first pair owed me nothing. Great product if you like the water!

These kick some serious ass!

I can't even tell you how amazing these sunglasses are...If you don't have a pair of these GET SOME!! I have had 3 pairs of Oakleys and they don't even come close to these.

Great glasses

This is my second pair of Maui sun glasses and I love them. Stupidly lost the first pair in the waves in Costa Rica. They are great in the sun, fit well and great for eye pertection.
I love them.

Maui Jim Sunglasses

I ordered a pair of Maui Jim Makaha sunglasses and were just like the pair you'd find at the mall, only the price was a bit better than the mall. I'd certainly do future business with this group.

Great glasses. If you are planning to spend a lot of time on the water these lenses are the best you are going to find. (All Maui Jim lenses are great). For the price, I don’t think you will find any better.
