Maui Jim's View
Whether you paddle, swim, or canoe the channel that separates Oahu and Molokai, you’ll need serious eye protection and glare reduction. Our version of Kaiwi Channel offers both--along with a comfortable, medium fit, and non-slip nose and temple tip pads. Whatever you can dish out, Kaiwi Channel is ready and will offer protected, colorful and clear views along the way.
Lens Material: SuperThin Glass
These durable lenses are scratch-resistant and 20% thinner and lighter than standard laminated glass for long-wearing comfort. For unspoilt views, three rare earth elements integrated into the lens ensure brilliance everywhere you look.
Clearshell is a proprietary silicone-based hard coat that protects lenses for top durability. Water and oil-proof treatments help shed water and repel grease to make smudges easier to wipe away. All treatments are applied to the front and back surface of the lenses.
Maui Jim lenses block 100% of harmful UV, giving the eyes essential protection from long-term damage. Sunglasses which don't provide UV protection can cause greater damage because they shade the eye, causing the pupil to dilate and allow in more UV rays.
Maui Jim fuse their premium polarising film into the lens itself, resulting in superior precision, clarity and elimination of glare reflected from any flat, smooth or shiny surface.
PolarizedPlus2 delivers the highest efficiency in blocking horizontal glare. The most common form of glare, horizontal glare is reflected from any flat, smooth or shiny surface.
The design of Maui Jim's original Bi-Gradient Mirror was inspired by Inuit snow goggles. A reflective surface at the top and bottom of the lens squints for you to relax the eyes.
Intense light from direct sun above and from reflected glare below are both dampened by the Bi-Gradient Mirror. This lens treatment is perfectly suited to strong sun conditions.
Just as glare can affect the view in front of you, "bounce-back" glare from behind can cause the eyes to strain impairing your view of the world and allowing harmful UV to reach the eye.
A patented, essential anti-reflective lens treatment on the inner surface of the lens blocks reflected light and glare from behind, enhancing clarity and eliminating eye fatigue.
