Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love me some Maui Jim! Bamboo Forest sunglasses are the very first pair of Maui Jim and I'm in love! They are very light weight and comfortable. Finding sunglasses is very difficult to fit my face. I have an Asian face that is round with high cheekbones and the bridge of nose is small. So majority of sunglasses sit on my cheeks instead and doesn't touch the bridge of the nose. What I like about these glasses is that they are kind of a hybrid. The frame is plastic but you have the adjustable nose piece like the wire frames. Because of this, the sunglasses is able to be adjusted to fit the nose and not sit on my cheeks. Not only do they look great but also slims my round face shape.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great Sunglasses I bought these Maui Jim's as a gift for my son. He commented that they were the best pair of sunglasses he had ever owned. Lightweight and very comfortable. Then they broke at the hinge. I had them repaired (for free) and gave them back to my son. They broke again. So, again I had them repaired for free. This time my son said they were defective sunglasses and he didn't want them back. So I started wearing them. I loved them! Best pair of glasses I owned and I've owned a lot of Maui Jim. Then, as I was wearing them, they broke. Three times broken. Very disappointed. I strongly encourage anyone not to buy this particular pair.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Second pair broke in 5 months, FRAGILE! I bought the Bamboo Forest due to the light weight frame and lens technology and comfort. I have 15 pair of Maui's and have loved all of them until now, I thought this would be the pinnacle pair of glasses. I've broken two pair in the same place, at the screw hinge, in 5 months. I've never broken a pair of MJ glasses and now twice with this style. Great lens, but Highly fragile frame. Does not live up to the the Maui Jim standard of sun glasses, very disappointed.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Broken in weeks I bought these to replace broken titanium MJs that I had worn for years. I loved the lightness for running, and also because I tend to have sinus headaches. I also like my shades dark, and these were perfect for all that. However, after just a few weeks, I pulled them out of the cloth case, which I keep inside the hard case, and the hinge broke when I slid them on. Not just a loose screw, but the part holding the screw. I do not do extreme sports, no hard wear & tear, & as I mentioned I stored them very carefully. So they are just too fragile for even wearing? Not at that price!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great but..... I,ve owned MJ's for years, over 5 pairs and loved everything about them. Lens technology, colors, construction have been awesome, and loved these specially for how lightweight they were, but these, one of the newer models didn't last more than 7 months!! They broke off from the hinges on both sides!! And not a loose screw they just came off. I was taking them out of their cloth when it happened. I take very good care of them. Very disappointed. So unfortunately for the price can't recommend them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these glasses! I thought $219 was pricey but so glad I spent the extra to get these. I bought these glasses on the way to St. Lucia and they are awesome! We spent a lot of time on a boat and I could see perfectly! I was the first to spot the flying fish! Great glasses!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely Light Sunglasses! I brought these the other day and wow! They feel incredible. Originally I though they were going to be to lightweight but with my Rx Frames they feel fine. With a nice shape and feel I would recommend to anyone looking for lightweight sunglasses and active daily use!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Shades! After 34 years I decided I needed real sunglasses. I've never worn sunglasses on a regular bases so i was scared to make such a expensive purchase. Glad I went with Maui Jims and the bamboo forest are great. Fits good, looks good and protect my eyes.
