The Maui Jim Hema is the lightest pair of sunglasses out there. Honestly, if it wasn't for the grippy temples and nose pads, we'd feel like these frames were more at risk to fly away than your poorly secured umbrella at the beach in a hurricane. All natural disaster scenarios aside, the Hema is an excellent new rimless option and we're excited to give you all the reasons why you need them now!

Maui Jim Hema Review

When it comes to high-performance frames, the Hema checks a lot of boxes. We've already hinted at some of the reasons these Maui Jim rimless sunglasses set themselves apart from others, but let's dive into the deep end and get into what makes them so great.


As we mentioned in the start of this review, the Hema is exceptionally lightweight. In fact, the Hema weighs a mere 10 grams. This is the beachy equivalent of 150 grains of sand. To put that into greater perspective, a teaspoon of sand is equal to 3,300 grains of sand. The extraordinary weight of the Hema is partly thanks to an impossibly thin nylon frame. Despite the lack of weight, nylon is a highly durable material, which makes this frame great for running, hiking, or simply spending a lot of time outside. The non-slip silicone nose pads have also been weight-optimized by a hollowed-out design. Tacky temple tips give extra reassurance that these frames aren't going to slip off or fly away when you're out in the elements.


As for lens material, the Hema is fitted with Maui Jim's lightest and thinnest option: MauiPure® LT lenses. Similar to the Hema's frame material, the lenses don't sacrifice quality in the wake of thin and light. They still manage to deliver optics close to the clarity of SuperThin Glass while gaining superior impact and shatter resistance. We hope you won't need it, but who knows? Those beach volleyball games can get pretty wild and sometimes you unintentionally use your head instead of your hands. It happens. You should also be aware that all Maui Jim sunglasses lenses will come with Maui's proprietary PolarizedPlus2® lens tech, which eliminates glare, harmful blue light, and HEV light. On a final note, the Hema comes in almost every Maui Jim lens color available, which is always a fun way to customize your look.

SportRx Frame Width (SFW): 140mm, which means a large to extra-large fit for men and an extra-large fit for ladies.
