This is actually my second pair of MJ Makaha glasses. I've owned a number of different brands of sunglasses, and without question the Maui Jim's provide the best glare reduction and eye protection on the water. As an avid fisherman, the glare from the water is a big enemy in tracking my prey, and the polarization on these shades cut through it like no other glasses I've owned. The frames are the only reason I replaced the first pair. The lenses held up well, but the frames got loose which caused the mount for one of the lenses to fail, but this was after almost 2 years of use, so in the end, the first pair owed me nothing. Great product if you like the water!
