You don’t realize how much you take your eyes for granted until the sun is so bright you can barely see. That was me this past week while I was at the Four Seasons Resort Nevis relaxing by the pool. Just days before my trip I lost my favorite pair of sunglasses and painfully regretted not picking up some new shades before my trip. A mistake I won’t make again.

Just in time for my next adventure, which just so happened to take place in beautiful sunny San Diego, I got word Maui Jim would be sending me a few pairs to test out. I was thrilled. You see, years ago, I worked at a sunglass shop in Santa Monica, and remember selling hundreds of Maui Jims to customers looking for top notch quality lenses, so I knew my eyes were in for a treat.

Born in Maui

Born on the beaches of Maui, one of the most lush and vibrant places on earth, Maui Jim developed their PolarizedPlus2® technology. This unique lens technology not only protects eyes from glare and harmful UV, but also enhances what you’re meant to see – Vivid colors and detail.

You know the saying, “you have to see it to believe it”? Well, this is how I feel about wearing Maui Jim sunglasses for the first time.

I was in San Diego for a test drive event where myself and 40+ other media were going to take cars in and around the famed Gaslamp Quarter. Being out on the road for more than a few hours in the bright sun calls for good eye protection. For such an occasion I decided to wear the Cliff House sunglasses with Maui Jim’s Blue Hawaii Lens. I’m a fan of the blue flash mirror look.

A common threat to drivers is the glare you get from the sun, which is nonexistent wearing Maui Jims. Thanks to their PolarizedPlus2® lenses, 99.9% of glare is eliminated, leaving you with clear vision for the open road. In addition, Maui Jim lenses are designed to enhance the colors your eye’s see, rather than darken your view like other sunglass brands.

Obvious Conclusion

It’s really no wonder why I sold so many pairs back when I was in sales. They practically sold themselves with people coming in asking them by name.

Visit Maui Jim’s site to learn more about their technology and to shop their different styles. I think you will find that they have effectively bridged the gap between fashion and function; providing styles for everyone. You can also scope out how people wear their Maui Jims by visiting their social channels: Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
