Product Overview

Not for sale online in California.

Create your own iconic look with this legendary style. Your eyes will thank you for it.

Although originally known as "pilot's glasses," the aviator style of today isn't just seen in the cockpits of airplanes. In fact, this is one of the most popular looks for everyday use. Maui Jim's Castles Polarized Sunglasses are ready to protect your eyes and improve your view on the water, on land or in the air. Their PolarizedPlus2® lens technology goes beyond shielding your eyes from glare and harmful UV to reveal and enhance the colors that define your world. With SuperThin Glass lenses you get Maui Jim's crispest optics and the best scratch and solvent resistance. Lightweight Monel metal frames with nickel silver and acetate temples are durable and resist corrosion. Adjustable, nonslip rubber nose pads are included for comfort, stability and to help keep them on your face. Although, if you want to be extra sure they don't end up falling off at an inopportune moment (like when the media is photographing you landing on a beach in the Philippines), a neoprene retainer or leash (sold separately) is inexpensive insurance.
