Top Three Maui Jim Sunglasses Styles

Consumers purchase Maui Jim sunglasses because they have chic style and are made from high-tech materials that protect eyes from the harmful rays of the sun. The company names their sun glasses with Hawaiian words that relate to the beach, surf, and sun. Here are three of the most popular Maui Jim sunglasses styles:

Maui Jim Hookipa Sunglasses
These glasses get their name from an awesome windsurfing beach. They are made with stainless steel pins at the temple and are salt-water safe. The frames are rimless and provide clear vision for sports such as surfing. They have an attractive, modern look; and the lens colors come in neutral grey, Maui rose, and HCL bronze.

Maui Jim Mahaka Sunglasses
Mahaka glasses improve visibility during activity due to the frame’s small strip around the lenses. They give excellent coverage against dust, windblown sand, and salt spray. The temple end pads and rubber nose pads help keep the glasses securely on the face. This model offers a wide range of lens colors.

Maui Jim Stingray Sunglasses
The Maui Jim Stingray sunglasses are full framed with wide temples. Most people use these for driving or sunbathing. The wide temples allow for additional shading from the sun; and simple, individual fitment is permitted due to the bendable metal cores. HCL bronze and neutral grey are the color choices.

Why Safety Glasses are a Good Buy for Cyclists

Most cyclists buy sports glasses as part of their cycling gear, but safety glasses can work just as well and look just as stylish. Here are five reasons to consider buying safety glasses for your outdoor rides.

• They meet ANSI standards for safety, which means they resist breaking or cracking if hit at high speeds by objects kicked up from the road or flying in the air, and protect you from insects, dust and wind.
• They have UV and IR protection, which is certified by the safety regulators who oversee safety glasses manufacturing.
• They come with a pretty cheap price tag compared to a specialty sports glasses. Some are only around ten dollars or less, which also makes replacing them easy if you damage or lose them.
• Surprisingly, safety glasses also have the color tint options of the designer glasses: yellow or amber will make the world appear brighter and works well in low light; copper, orange, and brown enhance contrast and depth perception which makes it easier to see road conditions.
• These glasses also are made in a variety of fashionable styles, so they don’t just look like something you wear only for work. They can come with other amenities such as adjustable frames, nose pieces, anti-scratch lenses. Some brands are even fog free.
