Maui Jim Brings back a Popular Sunglass Style from the Past


From Maui Jim:

In fashion, styles that were successful many years ago often reappear in re-imagined ways because of their original popularity. This is certainly the case with Maui Jim’s re-introduction of one of its most popular styles – Voyager. Twenty years after its original debut, Voyager joins the 2012-2013 ON THE WATER COLLECTION because of its classic lines that never go out of style. Loaded with the most sophisticated lens technology on the market, Voyager combats the sun’s harmful rays with renewed power.

Voyager (Style #178, $199 US MSRP) is a mid-size frame made from high-grade, injection molded nylon that is lightweight and affords a superior fit. With its slightly masculine appeal and modified rectangular shape, these sunglasses have some superior features, like spring hinges and anti-corrosive hardware, for outdoor enthusiasts who enjoy fishing, boating, stand-up paddling, sailing, canoeing
and kayaking.

Unique to all Maui Jim sunglasses is PolarizedPlus2® lens technology that protects eyes on both sides of each lens. This technology uses nine layers of protection to reduce 99.9 percent of harmful glare from any flat, smooth, or shiny surface, which makes it possible to see below the surface of water, an invaluable feature for boaters and fishermen. Additionally, Maui Jim sunglasses cut 100 percent of all UV rays. The unique, bi-gradient mirror technology adds protection from light through the top and bottom of each lens – basically, Maui Jim sunglasses squint for you to reduce eye fatigue. Oleophobic lens coatings repel water and grease. The lenses also have scratch-resistant properties.

Voyager comes in two different frame and lens colors for different light conditions. Voyager in Gloss Black with Neutral Grey lenses is designed for bright sunny days. In Tortoise with HCL® Bronze lenses, these sunglasses are good for variable light conditions. All Voyager lenses are made from SuperThin glass that is 20 percent lighter and thinner than conventional glass lenses.

An added benefit of PolarizedPlus2 technology is color enhancement. Maui Jim is the only company to use three rare earth elements embedded in its lenses which, when combined with the glare-protecting elements of each lens, result in significantly truer, more vivid colors.

Voyager is available with MauiPassport® prescription lenses in powers from +3.00 to -4.50. This style has an eye size of 60 mm; bridge size of 15 mm; and temple length of 135 mm, as well as a 6-base curvature.

Other unisex sunglasses currently available in the ON THE WATER COLLECTION include Waimea Canyon, Seawall, Blue Water, Surf Rider, Nine Palms, Dorado, Island Time, Canoes, Peahi, Longboard, Stingray, Akamai, Lagoon, Navigator, Offshore, Banyans and Olowalu. Three styles are specifically designed for women, including Palms, Rainbow Falls and Punchbowl.
