from New Jersey, u,s,a,

I love the comfort and style of the Kahuna (mj 162-23 59/18-130) and (mu 229-16 58=18 135). I use the when I go for a run...I am sad to say i stopped to tighten my shoe and my glasses fell off my face on to side walk. One lens on both glasses were shattered. I know it's asking a lot would it be possible to get replacements and in the future, can I purchase warranty. I have been wearing this make for several years. I usually do not use them for running but I have problems with my retina and must have proper protection. Thank you. M. Dothard

Review for Zappos Rewards Points
(What's this?)

Barbara C

from Bossier city Louisiana

I purchased the sunglasses for my son as a Christmas gift. He absolutely loves them. I tried them on and was very impressed with how they cut the glare and bright light, but yet they do not diminish colors. They are attractive and well-made. Buying them from Zappos was just a bonus. Their customer service is unbeatable. After accidentally sending the wrong pair initially, they compensated me very generously and made the situation right. I love this company!

They may seem a little pricey, but when you look through these lenses, you will know where that extra money went! Best optical quality of any sunglasses that I have ever had (and I have had them all). They have superior glare reduction and fantastic color enhancement. They are also well constructed. I own both the black and brown pair because the metal frame and classic tortoise stems make the glasses sophisticated enough to wear with a suit. Yet, they are still sporty enough to wear with casual summer attire. It is true that they are a bit on the heavy side, which is an expected compromise for the higher optical quality of glass lenses. What is more of an issue for me than the weight, however, is that they are not a great fit for smaller heads (I am a 6 7/8 hat size). The stem extends so that the curved part is about an inch beyond the back of my ear. This, combined with the weight, means I have to be careful when bending over or not to move my head too abruptly. Still, that is a small compromise to make for this combination of optical quality and style. I highly recommend these glasses!

This glasses are wonderful. In a very shiny day you use them and reduces all glare and gives you very clear sight.

I really like these sunglasses. They have an old school look. The lenses are great… everything looks clear and glare is practically non-existent. I did find that after a bit of wear the frame needed adjustment. However, I'm keeping them. The metal frame takes a bit of getting used to after years of wearing plastic.

I ordered replacement sunglasses after breaking my Kahuna's from Zappos. I ordered the wrong shade of glass and frames, only realizing this after receiving my order. Zappos shipped me the correct sunglasses in one day from the east coast free of charge to replace my mistake. I did not have to wait until they received my return. The glasses are perfect and the customer service is the best I've ever received, ordering most of my stuff from the internet for the past 15 years. Absolutely unprecedented service!

I finally made the jump to a higher priced MJ. I've only purchased the lower priced versions until recently. I bought the Kahunas and I love them. The only issue I have is they seems to "creak" when I hold the arms and put them on. I think the plastic covering the arms isn't perfect causing the noise. Aside from that these are the best sunglasses I've ever had on my face. The color is incredible, even when it's not direct sunlight. Plus they look great, very distinguished. I will be buying a pair of these for my wife very soon. I purchased these from Zappos because they have the best service and they are so easy to do business with. Don't buy these, or anything else, from another retailer. I bought a pair of Oakleys from Sunglass Hut and they would not exchange them for a different pair (brand new, never worn). Horrible customer service. Thanks Zappos!

Had a pair of Kahuna sunglasses for over 3 years and LOVE them. I recently lost them and immediately replaced with a pair from Zappos. When I got them, something had changed. The frame-sides have either been changed by MJ or these are some type of manufactures error and that's why Zappos can sell them for $50 less than you can find them anywhere else. I wore these every day for 3 straight years and the second I touched the new pair I could tell the frames were cheaper. They made a clicking noise when opening and closing them (the plastic clicking pieces clicking off of each other) and it felt like the kind of cheap material you would find on a cheap child's toy. It's not a matter of "breaking them in" and my original pair was higher quality from the first time I held them. I was and am VERY disappointed. I didn't even try them on because it didn't matter, they were being sent back. I will be replacing these either from Maui Jim directly or in person where I can verify the quality.
