Maui Evolution

When you need an everyday lens for your active life, look to the lens that fuses the best properties of SuperThin glass and polycarbonate. Extremely lightweight. Scratch- and impact-resistant. Patented lens treatments bring the worlds true colors to life. With the high-performance optics you need to keep up with your outdoor sports.


A proprietary, silicone-based hard coat that protects your lenses. Glass is naturally scratch resistant but MauiPure®, Maui Evolution® and polycarbonate lenses perform better longer with the added durability of our optically correct CLEARSHELL®. Applied to the front and back of the lens.


In every pair of Maui Jims you’ll find our patented, color-infused lens technology that wipes out 99.9% of glare, 100% harmful UV and boosts color via specially designed lens treatments. So your view is clearer, with crisper contrast and amazing brilliance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best pair of sunglasses I've ever owned I've had these for about 4 or 5 years. When I first bought them, it took a few days to get used to the lenses being darker at the top than on bottom (I got some headaches). But once I got used to it, they were (and still are) fantastic. I've owned plenty of Maui Jim and Oakley sunglasses and these are definitely my favorites. Durable, comfortable, they look great and everything looks beautiful through them. Would not recommend them for sports though (golf, tennis, etc.) since they're a little bit heavy and they don't stay in place if you're moving around a lot, especially if your head is sweaty. But for driving, relaxing, hanging out, etc, you can't beat these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Comfortabel and great fit i purchased the Sand Island glasses a month ago and i am very happy i did. They fit perfectly, they look great and they are extremely comfortable. i really like the spring movement on the arms of the glasses. it allows them to fit perfectly around the ears and temple area. overall very happy with my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love Maui Jims These were a gift for attendees at a conference I attended. Nice gift, huh? They are very comfortable and lightweight. I will get a lot of use on the beaches of SW FL. I am normally not a gradient lens fan but these are very subtle and work well, even for driving.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent I bought these glasses for a trek in Nepal to Everest Base Camp. Best decision ever. Lightweight comfortable and the polarized lens and gradient allowed for an even better sensory experience. Unfortunately after 2 years I lost them. I have since bought a new pair of MJ's

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite pair of Maui Jims! This is my 3rd pair of Mauis and they are my favorite! They look great, are extra comfy and you can't say enough about the quality of your view in these lenses (I have the bronze). I'm also extremely pleased with the Maui Jim repair department. I have had to send some of my sunglasses to them and have been extremely pleased every time. I would highly recommend the Sand Island sunglasses and Maui Kim in general to anyone!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from NIce looking but problematic I bought my Sand Islands about a year ago, and although i like them, I've been disappointed with the quality. For the high price ($339), the frame has cracked once, and the lens has popped out twice. I'm sending it back to Maui Jim today for the third repair. I wish I could advocate more positively for the Sand Island. Unfortunately, I will never buy them again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gradient lens... Didn't realize I was getting gradient lens when I bought these. Not a big fan! Majority of viewing area is darker than my prior pair of MJ's even tho both are called bronze.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great polarized lens I got my Sand Islands through an incentive program sponsored by one of my suppliers. I am extremely happy with the fit, polarized lens, and overall quality. I would gladly pay the retail price if I need another pair.
