Rated 3 out of 5 by Yak01 Pretty good, just not for me
These sunglasses have a lot of good features. They appear to be constructed well, they're light, and they're stylish-looking.
The two major problems I encountered with them are:
1) The nose bridge is positioned in such a way that it enters my peripheral vision and creates a small, but annoying, black smudge whichever way I look. The only way to avoid this was to push the glasses almost as far as they could go up my nose, which was uncomfortable, and also unstable because they were no longer at the natural resting place for sunglasses.
2) The lens color is not nearly as blue as it appears in the photos, at least in terms of what you see through them. If you hold the lenses up in front of a white object, you will see a slight blue tint. However, I did an experiment where I looked at the same scene with both my old sunglasses (which are the traditional black/grey lens color), and the Maui Jim sunglasses. When I swapped the two pairs, almost nothing changed - the scene might have been slightly brighter with the Maui Jims, but it was very hard to tell a difference.
So, overall, these are well-made sunglasses that just don't fit my face particularly well, and which don't fit my preferences for color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LLBeanShopperJE Great Sunglasses!
These are just wonderful sunglasses but that is what you would expect with Maui Jim! They are a little larger size which I think makes them more stylish, and they are super lightweight. This is important to me as I don't like any type of weight. These sunglasses are polarized so they really put your eyes at ease. Yes, they are expensive, but I feel they are very well worth it.

Very comformable to wear. The lenses are crystal clear. Of course LLBean customer service is second to none.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JeffinSeattle Highly suprised
Was at first hesitant to order expensive sunglasses on-line but these looked exactly like what I was looking for. On arrival they fit perfectly and look great. They are my new favorite sunglasses!

While initally I thought they were pricey, the vision exceeds any sunglasses I owned and they are so comfortable, I forget I have them on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PBJT Best ever sunglasses!
I've had the Maui Jim "Sandy" sunglasses for about 5 years, and although I love the comfort and fit I didn't like the look - they were just too small for my face. I finally decided I liked them enough to try for a better look, so ordered these. They are perfect! Both pairs are light, durable (my old ones have survived many falls/squishes), and I can't live without them during daylight hours outside. I have the rose lenses, which are light enough to wear indoors but make the outside glare quite comfortable. Although the lense color is called "rose" I would have called it brown until I saw that there was a more true brown available. The rose isn't pink at all though - more of a purple/blue/brown. Quite nice to look through, and look good on too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by jnort do your eyes a favor
I'm a huge fan. I've tried several other brands in the price range and even above. Maui Jims are just the easiest on my eyes I've ever had.
My wife, kids, even inlaws have become fans. (hard to justify the money for the kids, but they have been good/careful with them)
We only use the rose tint - it's the best all around comfort lens, so that's all I can comment on. I have this frame, my wife and kids have the smaller frame. Maui Jim warranty/lens replacement works GREAT too!
