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 changes lanes and head on over to our Driving Sunglasses Buyer’s Guide.


Frame Technology

You might be thinking that the frame of your driving sunglass 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’s 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 to eliminate glare and harmful UV, which is essential for driving. In addition to polarization, Maui Jim offers a variety of lens tints to enhance colors and contrast as well as some of the highest quality lens materials available.
