Product Review - Maui Jim Peahi

Oh my gosh, have you seen the new Maui Jim – Peahi sunglasses?

My favorite time of the year is spring, because I try to be on the water as much as possible to fish and pleasure boat. Last week, I had the opportunity to be on the water for six days at the Georgia TBF Top 6 on Clark Hill Lake. All week I wore tried out the new Maui Jim – Peahi sunglasses. 

Pe’ahi (“peh-AH-hee”), the name comes from an area located on Maui’s northern shore; known for its big waves and extreme high waves, 0 feet tall. This area is a legendary reef break and respectfully referred to by surfers as “Jaws." Peahi is where classic fashion meets versatility.

Maui Jim Sunglasses, newest style sunglasses are called the Peahi. Not only are these glasses stylish, but they are very comfortable. These Maui Jim’s sunglasses will continue to give you the ultimate coverage and protection against wind, debris and UV rays in a generously proportioned wrap that’s big on style. They are very lightweight, flexible, sporty and hypoallergenic. The Peahi’s come with a built-in non-slip nose pad to ensure total comfort. These sunglasses are designed to be worn in salt water with its corrosion-proof nickel/silver alloy hinges. All Maui Jim sunglasses have scratch/impact resistant lightweight polarized lenses that provide incredible clarity on and off the water.

The Maui Jim Peahi Sunglasses are made to block out harmful glare and still allows you to see the vivid colors around you. They come with a super-thin glass (ST Glass) lens that can be used for general wear. The ST Glass is 20% thinner and lighter than conventional glass giving you a superior optic that is durability and scratch resistance without the weight of a conventional glass lens. Polarized Plus 2 technology purpose is to block the glare and UV from all angles. This allows the lenses to manage blue light and then boost colors for unmatched color clarity and contrast. HCL Bronze Lens is perfect for low-light conditions or for those who like a subtle bronze hue for everyday wear. I personally really like the excellent contrast a bronze lens offers you. The adjustable metal core temples create a personalized fit to anyone face. Spring hinges gently hug a person’s head for a lasting comfortable fit. Interesting fact I noticed is these sunglasses are made in Italy. A case is included with all Maui Jim Sunglasses.

When you purchase a pair of quality sunglasses, you expect a good warranty. Maui Jim's warranties its products against damage and defects. This is effective for the first two years of original ownership with proof of purchase. Though the company will repair or replace the product free of charge at its discretion, shipping fees are the owner's responsibility. In addition, Maui Jim is not responsible for repairing prescription sunglasses' lenses, but the company can repair a damaged or defective frame from a prescription pair.
