    Do you have exceptionally odd shaped head or something? I'm trying to picture what they would do to make sunglasses worth $300. For $30 I can get comfortable and durable glasses with good lenses. That's all I'm saying.
    There's certainly a large brand name/fashion mark up.

    And honestly, if that's your thing I'm good with that. I spend more on certain things just because that's what I want and I can afford it. It's illogical but I do it anyway.

    I love them as much as person should love and inanimate object. I bought them on Amazon with an Amazon Credit card and received an additional $50 off. Before this, I had a pair of Ray Bans that did not last (the rubber on the ear stems came off about a year after I owned them), and a pair of Oakleys that were nice, but kind of heavy. These Maui Jims are so light, I usually forget I'm wearing them. The lens quality is also second to none. Now, they are so light, I think they would not withstand a lot of punishment.
    I've heard Maui Jims are the shizzznit.

    Went out shopping and tried a bunch on. Costa Del Mars with 580 glass lenses looked the absolute best, with actual class Maui Jims a close second. I only found a couple Costas I liked though, and they all ended up being too narrow for my fat face. I actually thought the MJ's with plastic lenses were slightly better than the plastic Costas. Glass lensed Hobie were actually right up there with the polycarbonate ones from the other two. And their plastic ones were right in line with Revo, Ray Ban, and Oakley that I tried.

    As far as aesthetics Maui Jim clearly had the best looking frames imo. Also the most durable. And the largest selection of widths. I was all set to go home and order the exact pair of MJ's in exactly the colorn size and style I wanted. I stopped in one more place to try on one more pair, and they had a clearance sale going on and we're no longer going to carry Hobie glasses. So I got 75% off on a pair of $200 glasses. I'm happy with that.

    One dollar and fifty-two cents for the ones in the ad at the top of the page.

    I have a similar pair of MJ's that are about 15 years old and in great shape. They are great, light, and excellent lenses not to mention very durable. 5 years ago I got another pair with more solid frames just for a change of pace and they are fantastic too. Costal Del Mar is also a great sport/casual pair for the beach, sports, water ect... Their lenses are great and really reduce glare, great for protection and durable ala, don't have to worry about messing them up when outside playing or at the beach and in the water.

    Not gonna lie, as an ex-ballplayer I'm biased for the Oakley M-frames...
