Maui Jim’s Summer Sensation – Ahului Harbor and Maliko Gulch

Cruise through summer with Maui Jim’s new Kahului Harbor and Maliko Gulch aviators

Metal aviator sunglasses are this summer’s best fashion statement. However, Maui Jim has significantly improved the performance of this classic frame through the use of a proprietary memory metal – MauiFlex™ – that bends and twists, and remembers its original shape longer than traditional metal frames. Helping you cruise through the season in style, two new MauiFlex sun-glasses are making their debut in stores – Maliko Gulch (Style #324) and Kahului Harbor (Style #325).

Maliko Gulch

This style with a modified rectangular frame has an adjustable rubber nose bridge and anti-corrosive traditional hinges. Kahului Harbor has angular rectangular lenses that fit medium or larger faces and has an eye size of 65 mm, bridge size of 18 mm, temple length of 120 mm, and an 8-base curvature that fits snugly around the face.
