As you know from my posts here and here, I’ve been partnering with Maui Jim all throughout the summer. This time though, I wanted to do a shoot in cooler weather and talk about the importance of sunglasses in the fall/winter.
Many people assume that sunglasses are meant strictly for the summertime, but that’s far from the truth. There are many benefits to rockin’ sunnies in the fall/winter. The obvious being the automatic upgrade your winter outfit will receive. For example, here I’m wearing a wool suit with 70’s style sweater. To complete the look I threw on these super lightweight Maui Jim Guardrails. Now don’t let the name throw you off, these sunglasses are meant for all conditions are perform extraordinarily no matter what the season is.
The Guardrails I’m wearing offer Maui Jim’s PolarizedPlus2 technology and here is how the technology can help you this winter!
UV Protection. As fall approaches, the suns position changes – making it sit lower in the sky. This can result in some annoying patches of sun and obviouslyimpair one’s ability to see clearly. PolarizedPlus2 technology lenses block 100% of all harmful UV rays, protecting your eyes from damage and long-term health risks. Sunglasses that do not provide UV protection can actually cause more damage because they shade the eye, causing the pupil to dilate and allow in more UV rays.
Eye Comfort & Strength. In snowy/frosty climates, the snow can act as a mirror, reflecting an annoying and dangerous dose of UV into a person’s eyes. By eliminating 99.9% of glare and reducing the impact of the sun’s brightness, Maui Jim lenses allow your eyes to stay relaxed. Without the need to squint and strain, you can avoid eye fatigue, wrinkles around the eyes, and even headaches. Your eyes also maintain their ability to rapidly adapt to changing light levels and potential hazards like headlights at night. With Maui Jim’s your eyes stay more comfortable, allowing you to spend more time enjoying activities in the sun.
Scratch Resistance. Let’s not forget about the insane winter winds that bring up dust and debris. Maui Jim glasses naturally provide a high level of scratch resistance. Maui Jim Guardrails come with their most advanced lens material: MauiBrilliant®. Their durability and long-term performance are enhanced with the application of proprietary CLEARSHELL® treatment to both the front and back of the lens.
As I mentioned in my other posts, the best part of Maui Jim’s is that they offer such a large variety of stylish options that you never sacrifice looking good in order to receive a premium quality lens!
