"Dude." (Looking intently at the other guy's sunglasses.)

"Wassup?"

"Dude." (Nodding approvingly.)

Wassup isn't just a greeting or a question, it's Maui Jim's answer to performance sunglasses with a laid-back style. Wassup 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 or taking in the view from your beach chair. Their PolarizedPlus2® lens technology goes beyond shielding your eyes from glare and harmful UV rays 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 high-grade 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 add to their comfort and 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 downwind on your prone paddleboard or nonchalantly retelling the harrowing story about the sharks you encountered to a crowd of enthralled tourists), a neoprene retainer or leash (sold separately) is inexpensive insurance.
