Sugar Beach Polarized Sunglasses
Just because they're rimless, doesn't mean these modified aviators aren't durable.
An awesome spot for snorkeling, kite surfing and watching humpback whales breach just offshore, Sugar Beach offers pristine white sand that stretches more than five miles from North Kihei to Maalaea on the island of Maui. The Sugar Beach Polarized Sunglasses from Maui Jim are rimless so nothing will get in the way of your view of this ocean paradise. With their 8-base frames of high-grade nylon, you'll find they're lightweight and extremely durable. Their PolarizedPlus2® lens technology goes beyond shielding your eyes from glare and harmful UV rays to reveal and enhance the colors that define your world view. 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 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 when you're cruising up the coast looking for marine mammals or chasing a toddler at the water's edge), a neoprene retainer or leash (sold separately) is inexpensive insurance.
