PUNCHBOWL Black/Blue These are absolutely the best sunglasses out there. I have owned a pair since 2013 and only have lenses changed due to prescription changes. I have tried others, due to cost of lens changes, but ALWAYS go back to these. They are the most comfortable, well-fitting/coverage you can find. Will never stray again! Will consider the "regular" glass frames for my next need.
Maui Jim, where have you been my whole life!?!?! These Punchbowl frames are so comfortable to wear, from the very first day. The rose lenses are gorgeous, and so relaxing for my eyes. The clarity and contrast is amazing, and the bi gradient mirror is perfect for driving. Zero eye strain. I don't know how I lived without these sunglasses! Pricey, but worth every penny.
I love these sunglasses, they look to be a revised design, and color of frame. I have 2 pair. First ones are aprox. 10 years old, 2nd pair about 5 years old. I liked the color of the frames & lens in red tint. you should bring them back
Say it ain't so! My Punch bowl frames are Out Of Stock. I've been wearing these frames for over 10 years and they're the only frames I've found that fit me perfectly and are sturdy enough to put up with my neglect. Any chance of getting them in the future?
On my 3rd pair of Maui Jim prescription sunglasses and I absolutely LOVE them. No other brand for me! As a professional yacht captain I am always in sunglasses so want great eye protection, polarization and optics. Also it’s important for me to have glasses that ‘wrap’ as much as possible and can still support prescription lenses. MJ delivers on all and more with great customer service to boot. My eyes thank me every time I put on my Punchbowl shades! Customer forever!! Thank you MJ for a superior product
The fit is perfect for my face....comfort and style all in one frame. The sun blocking quality of the grey lenses is perfection. I wish you made these in a wider variety of frame colors. The chat rep took into account all my requirements, specifications, and cons and recommended 3 styles and this one is perfect!
I was quite excited to receive my Maui Jim sunglasses! I ordered the Punchbowl/Chocolate Fade/Bronze lens bi-gradient/2.5 reader. Unfortunately I was unaware that with readers added it wouldn’t be bi-gradient. The lens was solid dark brown which wasn’t the look I wanted at all...so, sadly I’ll be returning them. Given what I now know I’ll keep my eye out for a frame that will be more flattering with a solid dark lense...so far I haven’t found what I’ve wanted but LOVE the quality of the frames. I hope I can find a pair that will work for me.
Avoid the reflective lenses for the punchbowl style.
Punchbowl is a great ‘headband’ style : good for holding back hair as the nosepiece is flush to the frame. Nice and simple style. I got the blue reflective lenses and they are the reason for the 3/5 rating: they scratch so easily. Brand new in June, going back for lens replacement in Sept. I’m really annoyed to have to spend $100 more on my new sunglasses. Going back to their standard lenses. Avoid reflective! In its standard build (this is my third pair of Punchbowls) they’re durable. I’ve twice previously smashed the glass lenses though. Didn’t know about the repair service, so always bought new ones.
I didn’t ‘need’ another pair but decided to purchase a backup pair of Punchbowls for myself. This is my third pair. I sadly lost one pair, just sent in one pair (black with blue) for replacement lenses, and now own a new color, the chocolate fade. I looked for quite a while, trying to decide on a new style, and kept coming back to the Punchbowls since they fit my narrow bridge and face so well. There really isn’t anything I don’t like about the sunglasses. Of course the price is higher, and I wish MJ still provided the drawstring bag with the case. Have to say, I do like the new triangular case as it fits my small bag better.
My third pair since 2014. FAVORITE SUNGLASSES💖. Purchased 2 at HyaTT Regency Waikiki, I lost one, 2nd got crushed after I accidentally sat on it. Loved Punchbowl so much I ordered third pair online. Except through the mail ... I didn’t receive the bamboo case with sunglasses 🕶
I purchased the black and blue frame Punchbowls with the Blue Hawaii lenses to replace a pair that I thought that I lost. Luckily I found the "lost" pair and that pair now resides in my husband's car while my new pair stays in my car.
These are my second pair of this style. I love both the look and the protection. I have very light sensitive eyes and the UV protection is great and the lenses afford a very crisp view (i.e., they are not too dark). I bought the first pair 7 years ago and I only had to replace them after accidentally crushing them in the hatchback of my vehicle. I was so glad they still had this style and I could buy online because I love them and I did not feel comfortable enough during COVID to venture out to stores to try on sunglasses.
I love these, purchased my first pair in Maui in 2016 and lost them several weeks ago in Florida. Of course no one turned them in and I know they were lost at the hotel. I actually ordered this pair on line while still on vacation. It was difficult being at the beach with out my Maui Jim’s. They arrived the day after I returned from vacation. Life is good again.
This is my third pair...first pair broke and did not realize I could send back to fix/replace...2nd pair was lost looking for golf partner’s ball in the woods...put up on head and branches must have taken them.....could not find tortoise in all the brown leaves.....3rd pair ordered in desperation and was not sure about not being able to try on but all design info helped!! I’ll be back for another pair. These lenses are the best hands down!
My 15 yr old Maui Jim's frame cracked. When parts could not be found to fix them, MJ gave me 50% a new pair. What GREAT customer care! 1st that my MJ's lasted 15years and 2nd that they offered a discount! will return again in another 15 years! THANKS
I bought my first pair of punchbowl glasses in Hawaii and Loved them. I must admit, I wasn’t so diligent with putting them in the case when not in use or with the special cleaning items. If t wasn’t wearing them, they were on my head holding my hair back. I have 9 grandchildren who haves grabbed my glasses off my face, like babies do and NOT 1 Scratch have I ever gotten on them. Mine have Never Peeled and I wore them every day. Especially working in the sun. Unfortunately, they were not fire proof. I am a CampFire Survivor losing everything I held near and dear But, I ordered my new Punchbowl Sunglasses and they should be arriving Tuesday. I’m so excited!!!! Thank you Maui Jim’s team for helping me find the correct glasses!!!! Excellent Customer Support Team!!! Mahalo!!!!!!!
This is my third pair of Mau Jim sunglasses. My first pair wore out and my second pair is floating in the bottom of the ocean in Bermuda. I had to purchase another pair!!! I love the style and overall product!!
This is my first pair of Maui Jim's - what took me so long?!?! After my cataract surgery (which meant no more prescription glasses), I felt like reliving my youth and found the frame shape/size I've loved since the 70s! Some classic looks never fade and these are the best I've ever owned! Perfect fit for my narrow nose and high cheek bones!
Sent them back.. they messed with my peripheral vision and felt like I was gonna get in a car accident with them every time I changed lanes. Love the brand so will continue to try and find something that is small like these but not as bulky frame. I really miss my original pair :(
I love these sunglasses! They are high quality, solid glasses. The spring hinges are a feature I was looking for for a comfortable fit. I am enjoying the anti-reflectivd insides of the lenses. No more aquinting in direct sunlight!
I recently had cataract surgery so I no longer needed prescription glasses. I wanted a pair of sunglasses that would protect my eyes from the glare of the sun. These do exactly what I was looking for. Love them!
I bought my one and only pair of MJs about 5 years ago. They have been the best! I have had no problem with pealing, scratching, stretching, nothing at all. They are wonderful. I got the darkest gray possible because I’m super sensitive to sunlight. I have somehow LIST them - miss them - so I’m looking for another pair. I need readers at 1.75. Wouldn’t you know, the Punchbowl I want offers readers in 1.50 and then 2.00. I will call them!
I wear my glasses daily. I use them while driving, boating, fishing and everyday outside use. I even wear them while I’m inside on top of my head and they maintain their shape and hold on the frame. Love them, can’t wait to buy another pair, might do the black and blue punch bowls next. I did find a pair that had marlin in their name. I don’t know if that’s a color or the name of the glasses. I’m searching again.
Maui Jim sunglasses are a game changer. I love the crisp clear visibility and contrast. The Maui rose lens has a subtle rose tint, but still let’s you see color beautifully. Can’t wait to get another pair.
This is the second pair of Punchbowl sunglasses I have purchased for my wife. She absolutely loves these glasses. The clarity of the lenses and the comfortable fit are the greatest features of these glasses. These have glass lenses which you must take care not to drop, but the quality of the experience is worth it. If you spend time in the sun And want a quality pair of sunglasses, these are for you.
I purchased these for myself as a "gift" and it took a long time to find the right pair. This pair of sunglasses are perfect for everyday wear as well as going out. The lenses provide superb eye protection and the true color is spectacular. The frames are well built and fit me perfectly. Unfortunately, I thought dropped them into my handbag at the Metra station and missed, they bounced out and right into my path as I was walking - the frames are intact, but when I stepped on them I cracked the lenses. I just re-ordered a new pair in Chocolate Fade (before I thought about seeing if my lenses could be replaced). I would have gone for the Tortoise as a second color option. I am a Maui Jim fan for life. Style, workmanship, durability, and eye protection. What more could a fashion and eye protection conscious women ask for1
