Designated the Hawaii state gem in 1987, black coral in Hawaii is the host to unique marine life all around the islands. Like their namesake, the rectangular Black Coral sunglasses from Maui Jim are vibrant and unique, made from lightweight SuperThin Glass.
I buy at least one pair of high end sunglasses per year. I have owned multiple pairs of oakleys, ray ban, revo, and Serengeti.. This is my first pair of Maui jims, although I have always wanted some. After only a week this is already my favorite pair that I own, knocking out my previous favorite Serengeti. Why? Well first let me start by saying for years I loved the looks of the oakleys and other brands/ styles that you can only get with plastic lens but for the last 5 years or so I will only buy glasses with real glass lens. The plastic lens no matter how much "anti scratch" coating they put on them, they still scratch or in my case with revo glasses actually crack them. I have yet to scratch or break a pair with glass lens. Back to the mauis... The glass in these is so thin, light, and the clearest. A lot of sunglasses I have a problem with seeing the reflection of my eye in them while wearing them, but no problem at all with these. Compared to my photochromatic Serengeti glasses and my ray bans these are a darker tint but they are a nice neutral grey which does not affect color.
I have owned Maui Jim's for years and love them and these are another great pair of glasses from them. Maui Jim has an incredible warrant program and the techs are great when the products need repair. This is the first time i bought a pair of Maui Jim's from Amazon and WILL BE the last time i do. I have sent many Maui Jim's in for repair, to include these. On this set, i was notified by Maui Jim, that Amazon.com is not an authorized retailer of there sunglasses and that the warranty is not valid (you have to send proof of purchase to get the repair for free under warranty). This cost me a ten dollar processing fee and the cost of a new frame (even though it was a warranty item) to have them fixed. This put me out the over 70.00 in all to have the repair done. (this on top of already paying over $200 for the glasses).
Came NIB with factory packaging. Nosepieces were completely out of alignment. Had them adjusted, within about a week the glasses were loose again. 2 months later the temple pieces are already loose at the hinges.
The short and sweet of it is Maui Jim's knocks the socks off of my old standby, Ray what's? The clarity on these lens are incredible. I was set on picking up another pair of Rayban's (Polarized) and the sales associate pulled out a pair of MJs. It was like night and day. Where have you been all my life?? Highly recommend if the style fits your fancy as the lens are top notch. 3 large is a bit pricey, but it's well worth it!
Bought a pair of these for the first time maybe 4-5 years and am currently on my 3rd pair because previous ones were misplaced/stolen. Even so, I still come back to these because once you see through Maui Jim lenses there really isn't going back. Colors being more vibrant through the lens and resulting in a higher contrast really does make a difference during the day, and I often find myself wearing them until the darkness starts to inevitably obstruct/hamper my vision. The construction and materials also feel really solid, having gone through several pairs I did crack the glass on one after dropping it repeatedly (obviously my bad).
Perfect. I've owned a pair for about 4 years, and lost them. I ordered these and they were exactly the same... only without the 4 years of wear. I did take them into a local office and have them fit to my head. After that, they were perfect.
Awesome glasses! You can not find glass than could possibly be any clearer. The seller I purchased them from was excellent as well.
There is no such thing as a bad Maui Jim sunglasses. I keep owing back to them year after year
Fantastic sunglasses. Excellent build quality and optical performance. The only thing stopping me from giving them 5 stars is that every time they get dropped, a lens breaks and incurs a repair bill from Mr Maui which is not insignificant. Other than that, very nice. If you're clumsy like me, maybe a pair with polycarbonate lenses would be a better choice.....
Bought these for hubby. He usually wears Ray Bans. I found these fitted his face better. They are hinged swell. No not cheap, but a very nice pair of glasses.
Fits great. Excellent quality.
