Product Overview

Looking for a retro style, but want the latest protection and color enhancement technologies?

You're going to love these sunglasses.

A snapback is a Hawaiian surf term for a quick, short turn at the top of a curl that's usually done to gain speed. Maui Jim's Snapback Polarized Sunglasses have that kind of effortless style, but they will also protect your eyes and improve your view on the water, on the beach and on the boardwalk. 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 give this wayfarer style a look that works equally well for men or women. Nonslip, embedded rubber nose pads 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 your ski boat throttles up for that first run across the lake or when you're waxing your surfboard in front of a crowd of admiring tourists), a neoprene retainer or leash (sold separately) is inexpensive insurance.
