Our View

The thin titanium reverse-groove frame construction of Pele's Hair is reminiscent of the strands of spray formed when lava droplets cool rapidly in the air. MauiBrilliant lenses are nearly as crisp as glass lenses, but with just one-third of the weight.

Maui Jim's View

Pele’s Hair is also the name for the fine threads of volcanic glass that form when sprays of lava droplets cool rapidly in the air. The thin titanium, reverse-groove frame construction is reminiscent of those same strands of lava spray, while the MauiBrilliant lenses are nearly as crisp as glass lenses, but with just one-third of the weight.

    Maui Jim Lenses

    Lens Material: MauiBrilliant

    A proprietary lens material blending the clarity of glass with the light weight of materials such as polycarbonate. The result is incredible distortion-free vision, and light lenses which won't weigh down on pressure points for prolonged comfortable wear.

    Lens Treatments

    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.

    UV Protection

    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.

    PolarizedPlus2 Technology

    Hyper-Precise Polarisation

    Hyper-Precise Polarisation


    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.

    Bi-Gradient Mirror

    Bi-Gradient Mirror


    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.

    Anti-Reflective Surface

    Anti-Reflective Surface


    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.
