For a quick video review of Maui Jim's Maui HT vs. Hawaii Lava lenses, watch with Sunglass Rob below.

Maui HT

The Maui HT (high transmission) lens is specifically designed to be as protective as a traditional sunglass, without being quite as dark. A high transmission lens lets more light in and boosts contrast as well, making it a great option for overcast conditions and sports like biking or golf when you want a brighter, more defined view.

Maui Jim's Maui HT lens is also equipped with a bi-gradient silver mirror that mimics the squinting of our eyes for us.

Hawaii Lava

Composed of an HCL Bronze lens overlaid with a bright red mirror, Maui Jim's Hawaii Lava lens is an attention-grabber. It's a dark lens perfect for bright to medium lighting conditions and sports like fishing, where you're in direct sunlight. Hawaii Lava has a gradient mirror that's strongest from the top of the lens, which provides a two-toned greenish-bronze high contrast view.

In conclusion, the differences are both aesthetic and technical. Maui HT has a neutral look and is engineered for low light conditions, while Hawaii Lava is loud and ready to take on bright light conditions.
