Maui Jim® Ka'anapali Sunglasses
Quality for cash
This review is based on every day wear from sun rise to sun set . First the good points ,the weight of these sun glasses will allow you to wear them all day if needs be ,it's light and comfortable and after few minutes they are hardley noticable.The lens are clear and work as advertised, it filters the glear off the water allowing you to see what's below the surface. There is one more thing worth mentioning and that is, there was little or no eye fatigue while wearing these glass may you be at land or sea. And now the bad points , for set of shades that are runnig betwwen $250.00US and $300.00US you should get better service from the stores that sells them and not some prerehearst "sorry sir or mam ,we can't or you just have to call this number" .Thats not coustmer service so take note.The next bad point is the attachment points, were the bridge joins the lens, needs to be more durable.For this the weakest point on thses glasses and should be address A.S.A.P to maintain coustmer satisfaction and faith in this product. Now to show that Istill have faith in this product this will be my forth pair, of Maui Jims but this time bought at store with much better service and reputation I hope.

there are two sizes
I didn't know there are larger and smaller lenses. The larger ones are more rectangular.
These are the lightest weight best sunglasses I have ever seen. My husbands first pair got scratched when he put them in his briefcase-oops-so I bought this replacement pair. The frame is springy so you cant crush it or bend it out of shape. When you put them on your eyes, its like , ahhhh, now my eyes can relax! I'm thinking there will be less wrinkles on his face and less damage from the sun to his eyes.

Used for everyday and all day!
I fly for my profession and these glasses work very well wether I am in the cockpit of the aircraft or out all day on the boat. I absolutely love the weight and feel of these glasses. The only downside it that they are a bit expensive but when you spend all day almost everyday in the sun, they are by far better than any other pair I have ever owned, which is a lot. Many end up at the bottom of the lake but these have never fallen off even when I jumped in forgetting I had them on.

Extremely Comfortable/Extremely Disappointed
Very light frames that have a forget they're on fit. It's like wearing air. The lenses are polycarbonate, so they are susceptible to scratching, but this is also a reason why they're so light weight.
As a sunglass salesmen, I have dealt with many unsatisfied customers regarding their durability. the spot on the arms of the frame where there should be a henge breaks in a matter of months more often than not. However, I've seen people wear these for years without breaking, it just seems to me that I get a lot more angry customers than I do satisfied ones.
Also, about the warranty the customer previously spoke about. It's not that Bass Pro doesn't want to help the customer out, it's that Maui Jim will not allow us to cover the warranty, aside from that we don't have a sunglass repair shop even if we wanted to. I do empathize with someone who only gets 2 months out of a $259.00 pair, because it's happend to me before, but I still ahd to send them into Peoria, IL., where they're located. This is how it is with almost every company selling these brands, whether it be Costa Del Mar, Maui Jim, or Oakley, they the manufacturer will not allow BPS to handle the warranty adjustments/repairs. Costa and Maui both help their customers when dealt with, and I do receive quite a bit of comments about how much they do help their customers. It's just a matter of going through the process of sending them in.
All in all for this particular pair of sunglasses, I say buy them at your own risk and be extremely gentle with them if you do buy them.
