While the answer to that question is wildly subjective, I would like to posit Maui Jim as a front-runner for the best sunglasses to buy. Not only do most of their glasses come with polarized lenses, but the company’s warranty program is second-to-none.
Case in point: back when Lauren worked at Sunglass Hut (circa 2007 or 2008), she got me a pair of Maui Jim Moana glasses—which are incredibly comfortable and light-weight but are also very delicate. Sans receipt, I went to the company’s Repairs page, completed the form to the best of my ability, and shipped my glasses off.
Less than a week later, the glasses had been repaired. As a courtesy, the company also waived the $10 processing and shipping fee, so I got my glasses fixed for free!
So if you’re trying to decide which sunglasses are the best for you, think hard about going with a pair of Maui Jim sunglasses. Yes, they are more expensive than many other brands, but the company’s quality products, outstanding warranty program and fast, friendly customer service make them totally worth it.
