Frigate sunglasses feature MauiPure™ lenses, the world’s clearest non-glass lenses that are also scratch and impact resistant. The lenses have waterproof and oleophobic coatings to shed water and repel grease and smudges. All Maui Jim lenses are distinguished by the company’s patented nine-layer PolarizedPlus2® technology that cuts 100 percent of UV rays and 99.9 percent of glare from above, below and behind each lens. Maui Jim is the only company to use three rare earth elements and other treatments to white-balance its lenses, resulting in true color vibrancy. PolarizedPlus2 technology also increases definition and depth perception.

All Maui Jim sunglasses have been recommended by The Skin Cancer Foundation as an effective UV filter for the eyes and surrounding skin. Proper UV protection is critical, as ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun plays a significant role in the development of skin cancer. About 86 percent of melanomas and 90 percent of non-melanoma skin cancers are associated with exposure to the sun’s UV rays.

Maui Jim’s more than 112 styles of sunglasses are backed by one of the most reputable warranties in the industry that is valid for two years from the date of purchase against any defect in materials and workmanship. Nose pads and temples are replaced for free, as long as the parts are available.
