Akau Sunglasses by Maui Jim®


Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love at first wear! I have quite a few pair of MJ's and this is my new favorite pair. They are feather light and fit my face well even though I don't have a particularly large head. Once they are on, I forget they are there as I have grown accustomed to seeing so well while wearing them. They don't move...Love them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight and Flexible Lightweight and flexible frame. No nose or ear adjustment available due to the flexible material but not been a problem. The standard frame is pretty wide so be cautious if you have an oval shaped head...helmet wearers know what I mean.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from AKAU Fits great. Earpieces slide right under a hat and they don't move. Unfortunately folding them up and putting in a case loosens nuts and eventually they'll break off the entire post or screw flies off never to be found. I just want a pack of nuts for when this happens. I keep them tight by using good tweezers, but I lost another nut. This has only happened 5 times. Thinking about loc tite to hold them permanently. Still love them. Had them 4 years now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great pair of sunglasses Love Maui Jims and love the 'Akau rimless sunglasses. They are extremely light weight and not tight on my head. Side note, I do have a small face. Love the blue lenses. The blue lenses work equally as well as the grey ones and go well with my salt & pepper hair. I am prone to headaches and these are light enough where I won't get a headache for the frames. I do play tennis and golf but haven't tried them on the golf course or tennis courts yet. Planning on purchases a second pair, just trying to decide which lense color to pick out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from They work really well for me These lenses are beautiful. The glasses are so light you barely know they're on your face. The base curve of 6 fits my face better than the 8 wrap style. The 8's make my eyelashes make contact with the lenses and I can see the ear bridge mounts in my peripheral vision whereas the base curve of 6, there are no distractions or discomfort. I'm glad I went with these since they fir my face nearly perfectly. Honestly, I have no complaints.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice glasses but not the Maui’s of old. Sent in sunglasses I have had for many years that could not be repaired. Bought these to replace them. Very light weight with plastic lens’. Not as solid as they used to make them, but a nice pair of glasses.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Sunglasses ever I've loved Maui Jim's ever since I moved to Arizona. The desert glare can be terrible on the eyes. I needed good eye protection because bright sun light triggers my migraine headaches. My purchase of the Akau Rimless Polarized Sunglasses were perfect! I was hoping for a little bit more side shielding...so...maybe my next pair of Maui Jim's will have that...I just have to figure out the type. However, the set that received caught the eyes of friends, who ultimately purchased a pair. I now own three pairs of Maui Jim's. These have got to be the best sunglasses ever!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Akau Sunglasses by Maui Jim These sunglasses are expertly crafted, super light with incredible lenses. You barely feel you are wearing anything. Really great sunglasses.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sunglasses! Addresses all my needs while playing tennis ! Love these glasses for tennis! They’re extremely lightweight, don’t apply pressure at my temples to stay on & I can quickly move my head in different directions without them moving from my sweaty nose!! I always need nose pads but these really work & stay in place!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Lens This is by far one of the best lenses you will ever own. I highly recommend these amazing shades!!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Maui’s the Best I love these glasses! I wear them during long bike rides and runs. They stay in place even when I’m covered in sweat and don’t hurt my ears after hours of activity.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great lens, but poorly designed Like other Maui Jim sunglasses, the lenses are of excellent quality. What lets this model down is the design. I treat my sunglasses very carefully all the time, never pop them on my head and always keep them in the hard case when not in use. That all doesn’t matter as the lens will inevitably crack around the nose, as did mine, 3 times. Ive spent enough money on this model - time for a new one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GO GREEN Love these sunglasses. I went outside my comfort color zone and ordered the Green. Nice!!! they are so lightweight and the lens color rocks.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Same Defect as Lighthouse Model Just like the Lighthouse, basically. Has the same nose piece defect. I was told on the phone by Maui Jim this was corrected. Apparently not. It's great that the frame itself is very flexible, but that doesn't matter because the nose piece breaks easily.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Shades Third pair of MJs and my Akau’s are fantastic. As soon as I received them my wife said “I want a pair!” I live in sunny Florida and don’t trust my eyes to any other sunglasses than Maui Jim’s.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome glasses I’m not saying for sure it was the glasses but I bought them for golf. I shot the best round of my life the first time I wore them. Picked up colors, light no fogging up. Better than my prescription sunglasses. The only thing that would make them better is bigger stems.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love them for tennis. Light at and sporty. So convenient to use and the new storage case is small enough for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this brand Beautiful glasses. So lightweight. My husband's favorite and only brand he will wear. It made for a great gift because according to him, you can never have too many pairs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love These, just a little square Have had Maui Jim sunglasses since late 80's. Love the clarity. Unbelievable how light these are. Lenses are kind of square. Really miss the discontinued styles that actually wrapped.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best pair Love these new Maui Jim's. They are so light you don't realize you have them on. I own 3 pair and might say these are my favorite. MJ better and better each year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the glasses but, expected something a little different This is the lightest Maui Jim’s that I own or have owned. Don’t get me wrong, I love these glasses but, I was surprised by the size of the glasses (larger than I thought) and they don’t wrap around as much as I thought that they would.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So light, they are like wearing air sunglasses. Great for driving.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Luv'n my Maui's! They fit nicely and they're comfortable. If you're looking for heavier, noticeable weight wise on your face sunglasses, these are not for you. These are lightweight and stylish. I do recommend them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best sunglasses you can buy! Very durable and resistant to scratches! Love my Maui Jim’s! Light, comfortable, clear and the best sunglasses you could find anywhere! Highly recommend Maui Jim’s!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love Maui Jim’s! I love the quality & brand of Maui Jim’s which I have worn for many years. It is my 6th pair of Maui Jim sunglasses. The line of Mauipure Lt that came out last year is awesome! Super light material. I purchased the Hema style last year and recently bought the Akau style....maybe another color next year! You can’t go wrong with trying them out!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very light and comfortable pair of glasses. My only problem is they are very fragile, but overall I have loved these glasses.
Date published: 2020-09-23
Rated 2 out of 5 by from While they look okay, I'll be returning them. Can't stand how they fit and way too flimsy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These sunglasses are great. I had cataract surgery last year and have struggled to find a pair of glasses that protect my eyes from the bright and almost always shine sun in Colorado. I purchased the Maui Green and I pleased with my choice. They are super lightweight and fit fine, which sometimes is difficult because I have a small face.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from disliked. Returned Look nice, but sorry to say I'm going to be returning these. They do not sit on my face right and never really feel comfortable. This is my 4th pair of Maui Jim's, and the first pair I've ever dusliked.
