Aloha and welcome to the world of Maui Jim. The maker of Hawaii’s premium sunglasses brand has released a number of new items and is ready for the world to have a peak. Now is your turn.
The first thing that is immediately clear is the quality of the polarization and optics of the lenses. Experiencing a clear field of view without headaches, I tested out the polarization on various surfaces. Polarized light (click for more info on polarized light) is not only painful on the eyes, it is distracting and dangerous. The polarized filter in the lenses of every pair of Maui Jim sunglasses takes care of that. Look at the three pictures below of Lehua to see how the filter takes away the polarized light (light off a monitor is polarized, and yes, it is a crude example).
Features: The most striking feature is of course the standard polarized lenses on all Maui Jim lenses. Without them, you are exposed to glare.
