Product Overview

Not for sale online in California.

Do you like the looks of a retro wayfarer style, but need the extra protection of a wrap frame?

No need for compromise. These sunglasses have both.

Maui Jim's Kahi Polarized Sunglasses are curved to fit closer to your face to help stop reflected UV rays from sneaking in around your eyes when you're on the water. Their PolarizedPlus2® lens technology goes beyond shielding your eyes from glare and harmful UV to reveal and enhance the colors that define your waterlife. With SuperThin Glass lenses you get Maui Jim's crispest optics and the best scratch and solvent resistance. Durable, corrosion-resistant and lightweight, these nylon frames have a wrap style that works as hard as you do. Their curved shape and wide temples provide extra protection from stray UV light, sand and even some allergens. Nonslip, embedded rubber nose pads and rubber tipped temples are included for 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 when you have to execute an Eskimo roll with your kayak or while checking your steaks on the grill at the beach), a neoprene retainer or leash (sold separately) is inexpensive insurance.
