In our “Buy It For Life” posts we feature products that are built to last a lifetime. We also give preference to products that are very durable, are warrantied for life, and are made in the U.S.
Maui Jim began selling polarized sunglasses on beaches of Maui in the 1980s. Now headquartered in Illinois, Maui Jim is one of a handful of companies that still manufacture their glasses in the U.S.
Maui Jim offers a lifetime warranty on all their sunglasses. If a breakage or other defect occurs, they will repair or replace the sunglasses for $10 (including shipping). I’ve tested this warranty a few times over the years, and they do indeed repair your glasses promptly. You just mail in your sunglasses with a $10 check, and a “like new” pair is sent to you after a couple weeks.
