Maui Jim Hots Sands Sunglasses


The Hotsands by Maui Jim are gorgeous sungasses. I was travelling around Australia and wanted a good pair of sunnies that were going to last me and be effective as the sun is exceptionally strong over there. The Hot Sands stood up to the test, not cheap but not expensive and for quality you don't mind paying that little bit extra.

I used them for sightseeing and extreme water sports they were a great all round product, the non-slip temples and nosepads were a must as I have worn top sunglasses before and one pair I lost while climbing in Africa as the grip just wasn't good enough.

If you are thinking about purchasing a pair I would recommend these, they come in many different colours.

Thanks Maui Jim
