I love these sunglasses. The most apparent advantage for me is how solid and sturdy they are. While the feel of a good, light pair of sunglasses is great, I actually prefer how durable these seem to be. I love that I don t feel like I need to treat this pair delicately when I put them on, take them off, set them down somewhere, or put them back in the case. The frames and earpieces are thicker than most and very smooth. They don't catch or snag at all when I put them on. The rotation of the arms is a bit tighter than other Maui Jim sunglasses but not so tight that it feels like you're prying them open. The nose pads are actually embedded in the rims which causes the sunglasses to rest a little lower than those with the extended pads. I have a slightly smaller nose which results in a slight feeling of nose-pinching (also barely noticeable). The shape and size of the lenses are perfect and could not possibly be better for my personal preferences: not too big and boisterous but not so small where you are forced to rotate your head to see everything within your frame of sight. In terms of visual quality, Spartan Reef is second to none. Why? Because Maui Jim made them. The clarity is amazing and the pop of color is incredible. We went on a mountain drive last week to see the changing fall colors. It was a bright, sunny day at high elevation, so I had my Spartan Reefs on. When we stopped, I took them off for a moment and did a double-take. The colors of the leaves were somehow more bright and vivid with the sunglasses on than with them off! I don t understand how that s even possible, but my wife can vouch for me. My very favorite sunglasses are those where within 10 seconds of putting them on, I don t even notice they are there. I don t notice the frames within my vision, I don't notice the weight on my nose or feel the arms behind my ears. The Spartan Reef doesn't quite meet that criteria given the slight increase in weight and size of frames, but the look, fit, style, and durability far outweigh any cons I would give these sunglasses. The negatives are so slight that I still give them a resounding five out of five stars.

It pains me to give any pair of Maui Jim sunglasses anything less than 5 stars because I love the brand. It took me ordering 12 different pairs of sunglasses to finally find a (nearly) perfect pair. The reasons I'm given these a 4-Star Overall are threefold. 1)I wish these were the SuperThin Glass lenses instead of the plastic lenses. 2)This pair does NOT have the higher quality spring hinges that are on my Palms and Pearl City sunglasses. Seems a needlessly cheap shortcut, especially given Kalenas cost $50 more than Palms or Pearl City. 3)I have nothing against things made in Japan, but the Maui Jim sunglasses I have are both made in Italy and are considerably more substantial and well made than the ones I've tried that were made in Japan. I don't know the reasoning behind some MJ sunnies being made in Japan vs. Italy, but I wish they were ALL made in Italy. Since this pair was the closest to meeting all my very specific needs though, I would recommend them.

Fairly good glasses. Reasonably comfortable. Optics don't seem to be as crisp as Oakley, but hopefully they don't scratch up as easily or as badly as Oakley lenses do.

I am absolutely disgusted with the product that I received. Not only did the glasses have smudge marks on them as though they had been previously worn, but both lenses were scratched. I will never purchase from Zappos again.

I returned these glasses simply because they were too wide. I needed glasses that would fit a smaller face. Otherwise, Maui Jim's are great.

Love these, but they hurt after a while. I wore them around the house for a bit and they started to hurt the top of my ears and mark the bridge of my nose. They are gorgeous, however, and I absolutely love the lenses. They really cut the glare and enhance your vision in bright light. For reference, I am part Asian so they hit my high cheekbones and the bridge of my nose is small so the weight of these isn't supported by my nose but by my ears which render them uncomfortable for me. If you have a more Caucasian or higher bridge, then these are super awesome sunnies!

Maui Jim sunglasses does it again. As part of the new Pure Air collection, the Twin Falls pair surpasses all sunglasses that I have tried to date that is, until Maui Jim somehow ups the game yet again. For me, the lower profile a pair of sunglasses, the better. Honestly, I barely notice that I am even wearing sunglasses when I m sporting my Twin Falls. I don't notice them at all when my face is still, and I barely notice them when moving, laughing, smiling, etc. They fit so perfectly on my face and are so lightweight, they really do feel like pure air. Apparently they nailed it with the new ultra-light frame technology combined with the preexisting MauiPure light-weight lens. Needless to say, the Twin Falls look is just me. My mid-to-large-sized, oval-shaped face does not handle all styles and sizes of sunglasses well. Twin Falls feels and (I believe!) looks good. They fit into that elite group of sunglasses that I grab for anything and everything: the poolside, the bright summer drive, a date with my wife, anything. Other pairs I use for specific activities. Not so with these. The lenses are incredible. I don t understand the technology behind it, but the colors and clarity are beyond compare. Colors are vivid and noticeably pop without feeling false or overdone. The level of clarity truly seems no less than not wearing sunglasses at all. Now, about the little (but important!) stuff. The folding of the arms is flawless. Some arms are too tight and stick a little, and others are too loose and feel floppy. Twin Falls is perfect. I can hold one arm with one hand and place them on my face without any eye-gouging collapsing. Also, the nose pads do not get sticky or slippery with face oils or sweat. I don t know how, but the sunglasses stay in place without a tight feeling around the bridge of the nose and with leaving minimal indentation after removal. The tip of the earpiece is well rounded and does not poke if not placed perfectly. I know most people don t care about this level of detail, but I do! Do I dare make the claim that these are my favorite pair of sunglasses I have ever owned? Yes, I believe I can. Yet again, thank you, Maui Jim, for producing another fine pair of sunglasses to add to my collection! Well done!

This is my third pair of these glasses, and I will continue to by a new pair each time a lose or break one! They are worth it! Scratch resistant lenses and great for sports. The polarized lenses are great.

These are my favorite go to sunglasses! They are a bit like Ray-Bans without the steep angle and the mirroring on the front always gets compliments! I should note that they don't fit in krokies well.

I really loved the comfort and style of this Maui Jim. Smaller than other aviators, so it is not a big teardrop running down my cheek. Great comfort and felt stable. I had to return them because they just were not dark enough for me. I was still squinting in the sun. The gradient lenses (fading from dark on top to lighter at bottom) did not help matters. If you like searing sunglasses indoors, these might work.

These are the best polarized lenses and glasses I have ever had. I bought them on my honeymoon last year and they flew off the top of my head yesterday jet skiing. I got on Zappos immediately to replace them and they should be here today. I will never wear another brand other than Maui Jim. worth every penny.

Love these Maui Jim's, fit perfectly and great for outdoor sports, hiking, biking and causal wear! They fit my smaller face perfectly and they wrap around just enough for good sun protection.

I love the look of these sunglasses. I've gotten several compliments on them. The protection and color is also top notch. Where I feel these sunglasses fall short is when you get just a little sweaty. They tend to slip down the face a lot. Also, don't bend forward, they will fall off of your face. With how flexible the frames are (which is good because you honestly can't bend them) they do not retain much grip on your face. If you are looking for style, go with these MJs. If you are looking for protection while active, maybe grab some Oakleys.

I had read the reviews on the Maui Jim Lani regular fit and I wondered if I should order the universal fit as the reviews for the regular fit were not too good. Boy, am I glad that I ordered these sunglasses. The fit is perfect and I have a very small narrow face. The lens color Maui Rose is fantastic. It makes everything very sharp and clearer than any other lens in sunglasses that I have and I have too many to count. If you were wary of buying the Lani, go ahead and try them in the Universal Fit. You won't be disappointed. And as always, Zappos service was excellent. I received my glasses the very next day. Way to go Zappos.

I love these sunglasses they are very light weight half the time I forget they are on my face, and the colors of everything are still there and there is no glare. I use to only wear Oakley's and swore by them now I will never wear anything but the Maui Jim's. Love them!

Love these shades! Very lightweight and comfortable, but I have to be extra careful not to drop/lose them. They do not stay folded up on my shirt collar. They flip out easily. I have to place them back in their case every time I take them off.

You get what you pay for. These are VERY comfortable glasses and very stylish. I love the flexible frames and soft bridge. They do tend to slide down the face when you are very sweaty but that is normal for over sized sun glasses. Either way, I love these shades.

The bifocal is quite small and not directly in my line of vision. I think a smaller frame would fit me better, sinceI have a small face, and maybe the bifocal would be better suited to me. If you have a regular sized face, these should do well for you.

These are fantastic sunglasses and I actually have another pair in bronze/gold. You really can't get better lenses than Maui Jim. Being polarized on both sides actually does make a difference. They only block out bad light so everything is still super clear. You can easily wear them inside or when it's not all that bright. Grey lenses are very neutral. My favorite features: amazing lenses, titanium frame is strong, ultra light and doesn't heat up in the sun, nose grips are non-slip silicone making them very comfortable for long periods of time, and finally I like the smaller aviator frame. Lenses are scratch resistant, but they will get scratches if you drop them on pavement. Biggest downside is obviously the price.

These are the best sunglasses I have ever owned. They are nice and dark and they really protect my eyes against the harsh Southern sun. And the semi-wraparound style is perfect to keep the light from getting to your eyes from the side. And they are stylish also and look perfect with everything!
