Sunglass Rob compares the Neutral Grey and Blue Hawaii lenses from Maui Jim so you know which one is right for you. Watch the video or keep on reading below to learn more.
The first thing you'll notice about this lens is that it is a very dark grey lens. This is Maui Jim's most popular lens tint, and it makes sense—if you're after something protective and soothing, this is the lens for you. It's best for sensitive eyes or if you live in a sunny area like Hawaii!
On the cosmetic side of things, the Neutral Grey lens has a bi-gradient silver mirror applied. This is a slight silver you'll notice on the top and bottom of the lens that provides extra sun protection by squinting for you.
Meanwhile, the Blue Hawaii lens is actually the same Neutral Grey lens with a solid blue mirror applied! As opposed to the silver bi-gradient mirror, this mirror is very noticeable and is a beautiful ocean blue color.
To get into the tech, there is one more difference we need to point out. Regardless of which sunglasses you have, adding a solid blue mirror on a grey lens creates a bronze or amber tint when you look through the lens. When people look at you, they'll see that blue, but for you, the lens won't be the same grey you might anticipate. You'll see this warmer bronze instead. This effect is due to a combination of technology and chemicals that alters the appearance of the lens. Regardless, the Blue Hawaii lens is still very dark and protective, so the differences come down to preference and cosmetics.
