Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth every penny and more! Shortly after moving to Southern Cali, I sun burned my eyes by using cheap sun glasses on my light blue eyes. MJ's were recommended for the polarization, so I purchased my first Ho'okipa's. After several years of faithful service, the dog ate them. Of course I sprinted to the store for another pair, same style. It's been 18 years and 2 pair now. They have been dropped, thrown, sat on, stepped on, and slept in and only recently lost a nose pad. Thanks to the outstanding customer service of MJ, they will be repaired. Now my only dilemma is what do without them during repair...I see a second pair in my future! I think it's safe to say, MJ's rock!!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Serious Concerns I can't put on a cap, a wide-brim light weight hat, headphones without them lifting the nose pads ever so slightly off my nose so as to have the lens shake rapidly when tilting head down while doing all sorts of house chores and projects. I also can't put my motorcycle helmet on wearing this frame. I love the lens though and will be talking with my prescription retailer about taking advantage of Maui Jim's 100% customer satisfaction and choose a rimless frame which won't interfere with wearing hats, headphones, and helmets. If you're not planning on wearing those items on your head, then I would strongly recommend these frames.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best sunglasses ever! The tiltle says it all.. I've had two pairs of these over the past five years, and the overall quality can't be beat. They're so light you don't really "feel" that you're wearing them, and the overall clarity of vision is something that you just have to see for yourself. After four years of various drops, scrapes, and other mishaps that would have destroyed most pairs of shades, the lenses on my first pair still don't have a scratch on them. The frame finally snapped recently when they accidentally got crunched under a heavy bag in airport security. When I got in touch with customer service, they responded in less than an hour, and they'll be repaired for me soon. Although I love the look/image quality from the Neutral Grey lenses, I decided to pick up a second pair yesterday in HCL bronze. I'm equally impressed with them, and would highly recommend these to anybody! Unlike some other brands where you're basically paying for a name, you truly do get what you pay for with Maui Jim's.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't live without them Truly. I have these as prescription Maui Jims and I wear them everyday. I hardly ever wear my contact lenses anymore and theses glasses correct my vision so much better than lenses. I plan to get another pair cause when they broke once while on vacation I realized how much I needed them. Really light weight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic glasses I'm confused about some of the negative comments. I have been wearing these glasses for more than 10 years- they are better than anything else I have tried. They are my primary mountaineering/glacier glasses. Like any lightweight sunglasses, of course you can't sit on them or otherwise beat them up- if you take reasonable care of them they will last years. I have used them for everything from driving around town to climbing at over 6000 meters in Bolivia. They provide plenty of coverage and sun protection. I used them in New Zealand when the ozone hole was large (i.e. huge UV levels)- no issues whatsoever. They probably won't fit everybody (I have a large head), but that's to be expected. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great glasses I've had my Ho'okipa's for 3 years and love them.I've dropped them numerous times times,sat on them and lost them in the snow for 2 days and they still look good as new.These glasses are great in the sun and when driving in the rain they actually give a little clarity through the haze.I recommend these sunglasses to anybody.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love my Ho'okipa's! I purchased my first pair of Maui Jims 2 years ago and have never had a problem. They still look and feel like new! Last week I purchased the rose colored Ho'okipas and love them too!! My husband has two pairs of Maui Jims as well. No other brand for this family. :)
