What to Look for in Maui Jim Driving Sunglasses

Before we hit the road, we'll briefly cover what features to look for when selecting your dream pair of Maui Jim driving sunglasses. For the full scoop, simply change lanes and head on over to our Driving Sunglasses Buyer's Guide.

Frame Technology

You might be thinking that the frame of your driving sunglasses isn't that important. After all, you're seated with your hands on the wheel. Your sunglasses just need to stay in place, right? Well, yes, but they should also be comfortable, lightweight, and offer ample coverage where it matters. With Maui Jim driving sunglasses, you get the fully loaded upgrade without the auto-dealer upcharge. Maui frames are going to offer comfort perks such as their padded nose grips and temples. High quality spring hinges give a relaxed but snug fit, while these ultra lightweight frames are designed to keep the sun out of your eyes.

Lens Technology

All of Maui Jim's sunglasses are equipped with their patented PolarizedPlus2® technology which is essential for driving. It eliminates glare and harmful UV rays. Maui Jim also offers the highest quality lens materials available with a variety of lens tints to enhance colors and contrast.

What Maui Jim Lens is Best for Driving?

Although I wish there was a distinct answer to this question, this answer doesn’t come that easy. Fortunately, this means that the answer lies in your hands and is based on your visual preferences. If you don’t know where to start, let's cover the two most popular Maui Jim lenses for driving.

  • Neutral Grey: The darkest of the Maui Jim lens options, Neutral Grey lenses are great for those who really need to dim down sunlight. It keeps your vision neutral so you see colors as they are.
  • Maui Rose: See the road through rose-colored glasses. Maui Rose lenses are great for a range of light conditions, and give you a pop of color and increased contrast.

Maui Jim Keokea

Kicking off our list is a brand new Maui aviator that you'll be seeing on a lot of our best-of lists in 2022. The Keokea, differentiates itself from other aviators in a few unique ways. When it comes to aviators, typically you get a metal frame and simple silicone nose pads. In this instance, you get an ultra-lightweight nylon frame, with Maui's adjustable rubberized grip in the temples and nose pads. Maui implemented a new adjustable nose pad system for this frame, which offers extraordinary comfort behind the wheel, as well as a custom fit. Needless to say, aviators have always been cool driving sunglasses. And the Keokea is a step above the rest.

On the road, these frames offer a wide flat front to eat up all that front facing glare and those harmful UV's. The simple design rests easily over your temples and adjustable nose pads give a custom fit.

The unique wrap differs from the design of the previous wrap frames on this list, offering a flared lower lens that gives a little extra coverage. This might not seem like a big deal, but once you wear these frames, you'll understand the importance of a little extra coverage.
