If you’re an avid Maui Jim fan, you may have already thought to yourself, “the Huelo looks a lot like Maui Jim’s, Red Sands!”. We agree, and we LOVE it. Adding a frame that resembles their top seller allows everyone who loves the look of the Red Sands options when it comes to finding a frame with the perfect fit. But enough about that! Let’s talk about the Huelo sunglasses.
As we’ve mentioned multiple times, the Huelo and Red Sands have a lot in common. Therefore, it may not be a surprise that the frame is comprised of the same thin-injected nylon as the Red Sands. The reason behind this, is that nylon works extremely well when it comes to looks, weight, and performance. Package those together and you get a frame that’s as adventure-ready as it is relaxation ready. Whether you’re off for an adventure or kicking back with an ice cold beverage, these are a great choice. In fact, considering how water-capable these frames are, why not grab your rod and reel, and take the Huelo for a coastal fishing trip with that ice-cold drink in hand.
But what about coverage? The Huelo, like the Red Sands offers a 6-base wrap giving you plenty of extra coverage from the sun. If you are the adventurous type, the Huelo offers rubberized, adjustable grippy nosepads and temple tips to keep them in place. This doubles as a comfort feature that comforts any concerns of these frames slipping off your nose at the worst possible moment of outdoor bliss.
The shape of the lens is one of the slight differences from the Red Sands. The MauiPure® LT lenses in the Huelo have a shorter vertical size giving them a sleaker look. In terms of the MauiPure® lenses, they happen to be Maui’s most popular plano option. With their high shatter resistance, incredibly low weight, and astonishing optics, it’s easy to understand why they chose these lenses. They of course come with Maui’s proprietary PolarizedPlus2® lens tech, which eliminates glare, harmful blue light, and HEV light. Now, if you were concerned that you wouldn’t be able to get the Huelo in prescription, don’t worry. You have the ability to customize your prescription build with MauiBrilliant, Polycarbonate, or MauiEvolution lenses in a wide variety of Maui Jim’s lens colors.
