Los Cabos beach

For over a year now, I have been enjoying Maui Jim sunglasses. 

It took me all of about 1o seconds to say goodbye to my old sunglasses forever after I tried my first pair on. Now, I can’t imagine not having a pair of Maui Jim sunglasses with me at all time. As soon as you slip them on, you immediately notice how lightweight and comfortable they are, and then you notice how much more beautiful the world looks through their lenses. I have had so many of my friends and family try my glasses on, and then go buy their own. It is like seeing the world in a whole new light! Even if you thought everything looked great before, once you wear Maui Jim sunglasses you can’t imagine not wearing them!

My favorite place to wear them is at the beach.

They have been to Hawaii with me, Jamaica, Cancun, all over Southern California, Florida, Aruba, and I am writing this in Cabo with them on! When I planned this trip, I knew Pete too needed a pair of his own. Maui Jim sunglasses help you enjoy the view no matter where you are, but the world looks better through Maui Jim’s. They enhance and make everything look that much better!

In the heat of the day, when the sun is overhead, that is the time when your sunglasses really count. It is a make it or break it situation. Because the sun is so bright you might want to head back inside and miss out on some outside fun… with Maui Jim sunglasses and their patented glare elimination, the bright sun won’t hold you back from seeing the best views and enjoying your time in the sun. This was especially true when we were walking down the beach today. I could feel how hot and bright it was outside, but my eyes never felt it, especially with the UV protection.

When the sun is bright like that, everything can seem washed out, but today we didn’t notice that at all because of the color enhancement from the PolarizedPlus2 lens technology. It doesn’t just darken your view, it enhances it with a higher level of contrast and greater depth perception,

I loved sharing everything that goes into making these awesome glasses with Pete, and he thought it was really cool to know all the technical features. We both agreed that once we had them on that all slipped away and we were just enchanted by the quality, the sleek design, and how lightweight and comfortable they were. 

Pete and I have such different design and style likes and yet we both agreed that we are now going to be a Maui Jim sunglasses couple. We both keep checking their site because they release new styles often and we want them all!

After our walk in the sand along the ocean’s edge, we settled back by the pool with some smoothies. I feel like we blinked and our vacation was coming to an end. This was the best way to spend the remainder of our time here together, sitting back and relaxing with a delicious drink and our Maui Jim’s on!

Do you have any beach vacations planned?

  • I used to have a pair of Maui Jim sunglasses back when I was a teenager. I loved them so much!

  • I’ve never tried this brand of sunglasses before. They really do sound like fantastic sunglasses though and I am tempted to try them after reading about all of the great features they have. I really like the look of the pair you are wearing Heather!

  • Those are really nice shades! If I’ve learned anything in my travels, it’s that all sunglasses are not created equal. I need to give these a try. We’re planning a beachy getaway later this summer so this will be perfect.

  • We’re skipping a trip this summer in favor of a winter getaway. But even then, we’ll need great sunglasses to protect our eyes from the sun.

  • Maui Jim kindly sent me a pair of their sunglasses to try out earlier this year, and I have to admit I thought they’d just work the same as any of the pairs of cheap sunglasses I’ve treated myself to over the years. I was so wrong though! They’re so comfortable to wear, they look great, and best of all I love that they have glare elimination. I can’t ever see myself going back to cheap sunglasses now! 🙂

  • Now these are some of the coolest shades I’ve seen. The PolarizedPlus2 lens technology sounds amazing. Sunny days this summer will be no problem at all.

  • These sunnies sound just about perfect. But they also LOOK amazing! Maybe I should step up from my Target Mom sun glasses I seem to be collecting…

  • I wish I could find a pair of shades I could enjoy. It’s so hard to find a comfortable pair.

  • I love sunglasses! This pair of shades looks so fab and elegant! MY husband will surely love to have this one!

  • Wow. Those sunglasses are not only stylish but they do take away all that glare! I need to get one for me and for my husband too. Will check the website in a bit.

  • I love the range of designs and the colors as well. The quality is evident and it’s definitely a brand that’s worth checking out.

  • I think this is awesome! It’s really important to have good quality shades with you when you travel especially to tropical/sunny places.

  • Those shades are both lovely. I would like to see more of their designs! It’s awesome to have shades that are not only stylish but are reliable as well when it comes to protecting our eyes.

  • No beach vacations planned yet, but we’re considering Atlantis. Just have to figure out the best time to go!

  • My in-laws live close to a beach, so we’ll end up there at some point this summer. As for an extended vacation at the beach? Nothing is planned yet. These sunglasses look great and I know a few people who would love them!

  • We don’t have any beach vacations planned, but we are heading to the lake for our annual family vacation in a little over a month. I do need a new pair of shades before that trip and a pair Maui Jim’s would be perfect 🙂

  • As someone who lives in the sunny Las Vegas desert, I could not survive without quality sunglasses and these sound great. Love that UV protection too!

  • This is such a great gift idea! My husband fishes all the time, and he is always in need of a durable pair of sunglasses. I might have to get him a pair of these for Father’s Day!

  • These Maui Jim sunglasses are a must to have this summer season. I have a pair myself, and I love how it makes everything look so glare free. These sunglasses are great to have when driving too!

  • I can’t ever seem to keep up with my sunglasses. Maybe if I had a pair as nice as these I’d be more intentional about taking care of them.

  • They look really cool. I am always in need of sunglasses. I am always losing mine. I need a pair that I know I won’t lose. Perhaps these are what I need.

  • I need new sunglasses, so it was perfect timing to come across your post about Maui Jim sunglasses. I’m not familiar with this brand, but it has many of the features that I look for in a good pair of sunglasses. Thanks for sharing your experience with Maui Jim sunglasses. I’ll be sure to check out their website. 🙂

  • These sunglasses look amazing! The pictures alone make me want to go on vacation with them.

  • Wow! It looks like you had such a beautiful trip. I enjoyed the images. So beautiful.
