Product Overview

Not for sale online in California.

Sometimes looks can be deceiving. Not with these sunglasses.

They don't just look like high-performance sunglasses. They are high-performance sunglasses.

A popular surf spot in Lahaina near the Puamana community, Hot Sands has a big performance wave, but not much beach. Maui Jim's Hot Sands Polarized Sunglasses with their edgy 8-base frames of lightweight yet durable Grilamid are ready for high-performance sports and your active lifestyle. Their PolarizedPlus2® lens technology goes beyond shielding your eyes from glare and harmful UV rays to reveal and enhance the colors that fast-action sports demand. If durability and protection against shattering are a priority, Maui Jim's polycarbonate lens material is also up to the task. You'll find nonslip rubber nose and temple pads to ensure your comfort 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 just as you're starting the 32-mile Molokai to Oahu stand-up paddleboard race), a neoprene retainer or leash (sold separately) is inexpensive insurance.
