How it all began
Now the fastest growing premium polarized sunglass maker in the world, Maui Jim got its start in 1980 as a small company selling sunglasses on the beach in Lahaina, Hawaii. Seeing a need in the market for technology that could combat intense glare and harmful UV while bringing the brilliant colours of the island to life, our fledgling company engineered the revolutionary PolarizedPlus® lens. Incorporated into seven new sunglass styles, the Classic Collection was introduced. And with that, they have steadily built a cult following.
Maui Jim: Banyans Gloss Black HT Lens
Product Review - By Shana - Competition Winner
Style – Stylish enough for everyday use. Score - 4/5
Comfort – Nice and light and did not slip whilst running. Score – 5/5
Vision Clarity – Due to time of year could only test in autumn sun. Lenses are not dark but restrict glare. Score – 4/5
Perfect for the weekend warrior, runner, golfer, tennis player or cyclist who turns "professional" during the week. Rimless, sporty wrap is light and comfortable and provides an unobstructed view.
Neutral Grey: Perfect for especially bright, direct sunlight. Offers rich colour and contrast along with the highest available light production, unlike ordinary grey lenses that flatten light evenly across the spectrum.
HCL® Bronze: For everyday variable conditions, from full sun to overcast. Provides excellent contrast. Great if you love a warm, subtle bronze tint.
Maui Rose®: For everyday variable conditions, from full sun to overcast. The highest contrast available – excellent for fast moving sports. Provides a subtle rose tint.
Maui HT™: High-Transmission for times when most lenses would be too dark — sharper contrast and more vibrant colour for early morning, late afternoon and foggy days. Heightens contrast and depth of field so that low light is perceived with new vibrancy.
PolarizedPlus®2: In every pair of Maui Jims you’ll find our patented, colour-infused lens technology that wipes out 99.9% of glare, 100% of harmful UV and boosts colour via specially designed lens treatments. So your view is clearer, with crisper contrast and amazing brilliance.
Maui Evolution®: When you need an everyday lens for your active life, look to the lens that fuses the best properties of SuperThin glass and polycarbonate. Extremely lightweight. Scratch- and impact-resistant. Patented lens treatments bring the world’s true colours to life. With the high-performance optics you need to keep up with your outdoor sports.
Material: Grilamid, a light, durable polymer with extreme bending strength known for retaining its shape
Finishing Treatment: Smooth and high-gloss as a result of being tumbled in teakwood and bamboo
Hinge: Anti-corrosive, stainless steel pin hinge offers lightweight strength
Bridge: Fixed saddle-style design with adjustable, non-slip, rubber nose pads for comfort
