    Pros: Industry leading lenses, great color clarity and UV protection.
    Cons: Questionable durability of their Flexon and nylon frames.

    Summary: Just before the holidays my wife and I went shopping for a new pair of sunglasses for me as a Christmas present. My friends always kid me about spending too much for shades but in my opinion the expense is well worth it if the lenses are top quality. ... read more

    Pros: Clear lenses (if they were not scratched). Other brands are just as good or better.
    Cons: Bad design. Bad customer service. What warranty?

    Summary: I bought my MJ 311 because it was the only style that fits and the bottom of the lenses didn't rest on my cheek bones. After trying out hundreds of pairs at the store, I paid over $300 for this pair. Well, after using it for 3 months it broke at the nose ... read more

    Pros: Great looking. Excellent functioning. Great service.
    Cons: Break in the same place way too easily.  Design or engineering flaw.

    Summary: I purchased a pair of MJ's Mauna Loa 311 model in April 2007.  They supposedly have the titanium frames. Paid $300 for them at a high end store.  They are absolutley great looking and performing sunglasses.  The best I ever had. ... read more

    Pros: Weightless
    Unique
    Cons: Price (>$200)

    Summary: I've had my Kapalua Titanium glasses for about 4yrs.  Somehow I've managed to keep hold of these same sunglasses for that long without damaging or losing them.  Good thing, because these are the priciest ones I have ever purchased.  The ... read more

    Pros: comfort, optical quality, polarizing effectiveness, customer service, deliver exactly what they advertise.
    Cons: None really, except maybe that they are quite expensive.

    Pros: Great Lenses, Classy style.
    Cons: Sticker Shock

    Summary: Although the Whalers can give you sticker shock, but they are worth every penny. When you read that Maui Jim's have the best lenses, that is right. When I was looking for a set of new sunglasses, I started searching around the web, visited many ... read more

    Pros: High quality optics, styles to meet any taste, awesome factory support
    Cons: Price

    Pros: Terrific lenses, lightweight, comfortable
    Cons: Price, no real extras, fear of losing them

    Summary: Some people buy sunglasses for style but I'm the type of guy who'll buy a pair of Levi's on sale and wear them until destruction. The main reason I considered a pair of Maui Jim's is the lenses. I have bad eyesight and am very concerned about ... read more
