Are Expensive Shades Worth It? (Maui Jim Mavericks Aviators Review)

Updated: Sep 16, 2022

These days, a pair of sunglasses can set you back twenty bucks or hundreds of dollars. But can they ever be worth hundreds of dollars? The Maui Jim Mavericks Aviator Sunglasses say yes.

Hi everybody! I’m Josh with WiseBuysGuys. Now, I’m not the leading expert on cool — and sunglasses are all about cool — but I know a good buy when I see one. I’ve worn Ray-Bans in the past that I got at auction. They never seemed worth the hype or extra cash. But since I live in Arizona and have to battle the sun all the time, I was willing to try more expensive sunglasses again. I’m glad I did.

Maui Jim makes a premier line of classic sunglasses. I bought their aviators and was immediately impressed by their comfort level. They fit perfectly on the nose and stay on your face.

A big part of that comfort is how lightweight they are. You can hardly feel them on your face when you’re wearing them, and they weigh almost nothing in your hand. In fact, they’re so light that they almost feel delicate.

Even though they might feel delicate, these shades are tough as they come. I have a three-year-old daughter, so these sunglasses have gone through the ultimate test! My daughter will rip them off me or toss them around, and they never so much as take a scratch. You can always polish them up and get them back into stellar condition.

That combined lightweight and durability are thanks to its composite material. It’s just one more sign of quality when a manufacturer makes sure every piece of what they sell is quality.

Last but not least, the lenses are another strength thanks to their patented PolarizedPlus2 technology. That polarization means you can see rich colors and crisp detail in extremely bright conditions. On really sunny days, it can significantly improve your eyesight. That’s a must when driving. Plus, the lenses are impact-resistant, scratch-proof, and smudge proof.

And don’t worry if you want a style other than aviators. Maui Jim’s entire line comes with these lenses.

All these features come together with a strong design to offer up what is just about the perfect pair of aviator sunglasses. It easily gets four and a half stars.

These classic sunglasses deliver big, but they do command a hefty price. Coming in around $300, you should expect something spectacular. But these really do live up to the cost. Now, if you’re someone who loses sunglasses all the time, they might not be for you. If you can hold on to them long enough to get some great use out of them, the price really is worth it.

If you are looking for great men's sunglasses, look no further than the Maui Jim Mavericks Aviator Sunglasses.
