I bought first time Maui Jim Island Time with Neutral Grey Polarized lenses. Really nice UV & polarized coverage, my eyes feel very protected. Great fit and no weighing my eyes down. Looks trendy and everyone liked in my family.
The color enhancement from the Bronze lenses still amazes me every time they are worn. My favorite is the greenery from foliage of tress. The colors are just vibrant and captivating. These lenses lend themselves to an impeccable experience.
Really nice UV & polarized coverage, my eyes feel very protected. Great fit and no weighing my eyes down. For the price, I would expect nicer materials, but it is light. I hope they make more women’s styles with some glam options and more color options!
These give me the most sun protection of all my glasses!
I'm on my second pair of these guys, and the only reason for that is the other sank to the bottom of a 300 ft deep lake, so... ya wasn't gettin 'em back : ( (I actually dove into the lake after them while holding my $800+ phone ...i hindsight pretty friggen stupid, but that's how much I loved em). I kinda promised myself no more expensive (like $100+) sunglasses, but after trying a few affordable replacements, I had to go back to my Island Times. I've always had a very difficult time finding shades that looked n felt somewhat decent on my enormous head. To this day, I haven't come across anything near as stylish, comfortable, and durable as these guys. Highly recommended... You will not regret it!
I was so impressed with my first pair of these glasses that I had to buy a second pair when my previous pair were wore out! Going to the ocean and being able to see deeper into the water than the rest of my family, wow. I saw marine life all around me that the rest of the family had no idea was around them! The lenses on these glasses took so much sun glare off of the water and allowed for me to see so clearly. By the way, my first pair lasted almost ten years before the finish on the frame started to give away. My only regret, I wish I could have afforded getting prescription lenses on my new pair to be able to match my first pair!
The quality of the lenses are unsurpassed. I have had these glasses for many years and wore out the temple and nose pads. Maui Jim's customer service repaired them as like new. A great company with great products. Thank you Maui Jim's!
I've had my pair for years and initially I babied them, always putting them in their pouch and case but somewhat abused them overtime as after falling under the car seat, etc.over time and not developing any real scratches I didn't baby them and they still were great!!
It's ironic that my first time to Hawaii, one lens shattered from a relatively low fall which had happened many times before but I"m back to buy another pair and maybe a second newer ones as the Polarization is second to none!
I originally bought these 5 years ago and lost them in a fire about a year ago. Glad to purchase them again, and will continue to do so. Very high quality lenses, flexible and durable frames, great fit and great looking. If you're the kind of person that hangs on to sunglasses for a while, then you can't get better than Maui Jim.
Maui Jim is an awesome company. I have had my Maui Jim's for years. I recently returned my Island Time sunglasses to them to get the lenses replaced. I was pleasantly surprised to find a new pair in the return shipment. Thanks Maui Jim! That's awesome and have made me a life long user of your sunglasses. P.S. Just bought a new pair of Stingrays and hope they last as long.
this is my 4th pair of mj sunglasses and while they have all been good up until this last pair I am disappointed with them as the legs are not even with each other causing them to be less than comfortable
Island Time is ok. Doesn't fit my face and temples bow out (I guess for snugger fit) but isn't comfortable. I was in a time crunch (a trip to Mexico within 4 days of receiving new glasses) with needing glasses that I didn't have time to go try on different style and was having to replace my beloved Hibiscus style.
I love my new shades. I've got a round face and it's hard for me to find glasses that fit. These fit quite well. I also like that they are good for being active with, I've been exercising outdoors with them and they don't slip when I sweat. I'm a fan!
This will be my 5th pair of MJ"s. Love the Island Time for its fit and finish and particularly for the lens clarity. I spend a lot of time on the road and the IT's really cut down on the eye fatigue and the super thin glass is a big plus.
This makes Maui Jim #5! Island Times are Awesome, and fit me perfectly; however my Island Times with the Glass Lens vs the readers I just purchased. The readers don’t sit as far down on my cheeks as my glass lens frame does. Which is fine with me. I bought the Spartan Reef readers, and Loved them, but they were a tad bit small for me, so I had to return them, and got another Island Time! MJ returns are easy, and hassle free, with quick turn around with your money! MJ’s customer service is second to none! I have Kahuna, 2 Island Times ( glass, and 2.50 readers), Peahi 2.50 readers, and Ikaika. If you’re listening MJ, Please make the Spartan Reef in a little larger version! :) Also, when they put the readers lens in the frame, it makes them super light! The Glass Lens are phenomenal, but the readers are almost just as great without the weight! Slight variation difference from the Glass Lens! If you are thinking about MJ; just do it! You will be hooked for Life!!!
Had them for a few years now absolutely love them fit just right on me ..BUT.. the rubberized coating collects any fibers from any cloth you use to clean them with. Also i got them wet after having them for a few years and the rubberized part got all grey and started peeling off until they dryed and the greyness went away but now they kind of have a sticky feeling to them... wish i could get them in black without the rubberized frame
Glasses smelled horribly like burnt rubber. I let them air out for several days and no improvement, so had to return them. Very disappointed by this. When I call MJ to report this, the rep didn’t seem very concerned or apologetic. When you spend this much money in glasses, they better be higher quality.
I bought the same pair over 5 years ago & went on vacation over seas & lost it. I had a lot of great memories with them. They look very stylish & they definitely protect your eyes from the harmful rays of the sun. These glasses add so much clarity to everyday life that you won’t wanna take them off. Not to mention they are the most comfortable sunglasses I’ve ever owned or wore. I 100% recommend these shades to anyone & you won’t ever need another pair so long as you have the island Time from Maui Jim. This is a very strong & well built quality of sunglasses. I have never had an issue with mine for the 6 years that I’ve owned them except for when I lost them. But guess what? I just bought the exact same pair. I sincerely hope Maui Jim continues making the island time because I plan on buying more in the future just in case I loose this pair as well. Congratulations to Maui Jim for making such a fine pair of sunglasses.
I’ve only had four pair sunglasses my entire life. I am 53 years old and my head is XL so I have trouble getting glasses to fit however these fit perfectly. However that’s why I’ve only had four pair it’s difficult to find glasses that fit and when I do I keep them.
I bought these a few weeks ago. I had 2 pair of ho'okipa readers, one bronze, one grey. Both going on 12+ years, little long in the tooth, a few scratches, etc. Looking for something comparable to Wayfarers. Tried Costa with readers. Didn't fit well at all. Fit so low on my nose that the frames sat on my cheeks. The reader portion was very low as well, had to raise the glasses to use the readers. The Maui's were a bit tight for my head, 7 7/8 size hate, but my local optometrist adjusted them for me. He hadn't seen this model, so ordered some for his stock. Really like the rubberized matte black finish. Terrific glasses! Very glad that Maui Jim will put readers on all of the glasses now! Although, I believe the lens is a different material when they do that.
Have gone through two pair over the past 10 years. First pair sent in for new lenses after about three years when I scratched accidentally. The glasses wrap around slightly and cover your eyes really well. Clearest vision ever with these lenses. The lenses are absolutely awesome. Best sunglasses I ever had. Buying my third pair.
Je vient de casser ma paire que j'avais depuis bientôt 5ans et je m'empresse de racheter la même paire car elle sont vraiment génial dans toute les condition météo!!! Étant très photosensible je recommande vraiment cette paire qui ma accompagnée partout et mon permis d’apprécier les journées ensoleillées.
Bought these back in summer 17’ in Toronto regular $370 got them 30% off, I can honestly say worth every penny I was always and Oakley fan but I’ll always buy Maui Jim’s. Most comfortable frames and they have the clearest lens, incredibly happy!
I’ve owned the Island Times for about four years with a prescription lens. I needed a new prescription so the eye doctor mailed these back to Maui Jim to replace the lenses. Ten days later my new sunglasses are here with new frames too! I couldn’t believe It. The old frames were fine except for the tip of one side, but MJ is legendary for their service. I got the HCL bronze lens this time after having had the neutral grey. The grey were fine but I think the bronze will be more versatile since the grey is very dark. These are excellent and rugged glasses. They are expensive yes, but it’s hard to go backward after wearing Maui Jim. I felt that with cheaper sunglasses, my eyes would get tired after a few hours, but I can wear these all day. I had two other brands of prescription sunglassss and there’s really no comparison.
Yes without doubt these are the best lenses on the market but I have now smashed 2 pairs in under a year . I wear prescription reading glasses and have owned lots of Oakley but never experienced such a fragile set of eye wear. both sets fell whilst seated so no great height ..MJ need to look at producing these in a tougher glass.
I recently bought these and they are awesome! Having taken my Raybans with me to Hawaii and then trying on these sunglasses there was no comparison. It was like comparing a ford to a Rolls Royce. The lenses are outstanding, amazing clarity, no glare and light. Worth every single penny, don’t think I’ll ever wear anything else.
I bought these sunglasses with prescription in 2012. They cost a pretty penny BUT well worth it. I wear every day in sunny climes (Caribbean, Spain, South Florida) and they are comfortable. Besides the clarity the best thing for me is that after 12 hours out in the sun i have no eye strain. 5 years of wearing daily and they are still holding up. Maybe another pair for this Christmas?
I bought this pair of "Island Time" shades and i was suprised at how well they fit as well as how they look and how much better i can see even if the sun is right in my eyes. One of my favorite pair of 'Maui Jim' shades, of which i own several pairs as does my wife. We love them.
The Island Time glasses that Maui Jim produces are worlds beyond any other sunglasses you have ever tried. If you have extremely sensitive eyes, these polarised, neutral grey lenses really darken the world - however, contrast is exceptionally vivid leaving you with absolutely stunning visual fidelity and 100% UVA and B protection so you can drive, beach, swim, ski, fish at your leisure without worrying about your eyes. Above and beyond anything though is the way Maui J treats their customers. Very best customer support in the industry :)
I changed to Maui Jims several year ago, Best sunglasses I've ever had!!!!! Best clearaty I've ever had with sunglasses, I spend a lot of time on the water and in the sun. Several months ago I dropped them and broke one of the lenses, looking on line to replace them, I saw Maui Jims warranty. I sent them back to have the lens replaced for $60. And within 10 day I had my glasses back. When I open the box to my suprise it was a brand new pair. I will wear Maui Jims until the end!!!!!
I got the shades at the begging of the year and have not gotten damaged at all I have dropped them many time and not a scratch I also go in the water and paddle a ton with them they are great and the lenses are not to dark and not to light these are by far my favorite shade I have ever had and I recommend the highly to Anyone looking to relax on the beach or to a hardcore athlete
I've owned my Island Time's for 2 years now and I have to say, I love them. Lens clarity and color are perfect, and still not showing a scratch. I live on the lake in the summers, and also do quite a bit of driving, but the versatility of the lenses are astonishing.They cope very well with everything I've thrown at them. Even the frames still fit tightly even after being accidentally sat on. These are the best shades I've owned, and are a well kept secret as I haven't seen another pair on campus yet. Highly recommended!
