I love these sunglasses. The most apparent advantage for me is how solid and sturdy the Spartan Reef pair is. While the feel of a good, light pair of sunglasses is great, I actually prefer how durable these seem to be. I love that I don’t feel like I need to treat this pair delicately when I put them on, take them off, set them down somewhere, or put them back in the case.

The frames and earpieces are thicker than most and very smooth. They don’t catch or snag at all when I put them on. The rotation of the arms is a bit tighter than other Maui Jim sunglasses but not so tight that it feels like you’re prying them open. The nose pads are actually embedded in the rims which causes the sunglasses to rest a little lower than those with the extended pads. I have a slightly smaller nose which results in a slight feeling of nose-pinching (also barely noticeable). The shape and size of the lenses are perfect and could not possibly be better for my personal preferences: not too big and boisterous but not so small where you are forced to rotate your head to see everything within your frame of sight.

In terms of visual quality, Spartan Reef is second to none. Why? Because Maui Jim made them. The clarity is amazing and the “pop” of color is incredible. We went on a mountain drive last week to see the changing fall colors. It was a bright, sunny day at high elevation, so I had my Spartan Reefs on. When we stopped, I took them off for a moment and did a double-take. The colors of the leaves were somehow more bright and vivid with the sunglasses on than with them off! I don’t understand how that’s even possible, but my wife can vouch for me.

My very favorite sunglasses are those where within 10 seconds of putting them on, I don’t even notice they are there. I don’t notice the frames within my vision, I don’t notice the weight on my nose or feel the arms behind my ears. The Spartan Reef doesn’t quite meet that criteria given the slight increase in weight and size of frames, but the look, fit, style, and durability far outweigh any cons I would give these sunglasses. The negatives are so slight that I still give them a resounding five out of five stars.

I wear my Oakleys every day. They are fashionable enough for any outfit, but also durable enough for outdoor activities like running, biking, hiking. Definitely worth trying!

The optics are fabulous. I personally like the bronze lenses the best as they make colors unbelievably vivid. I was driving in a rainstorm one black night and couldn't see much. Finally I put on the Maui Jims and they really brought definition back. Well worth the $200 paid for them.

I use them for practically every outdoor activity and sport(Volleyball, Mountain biking, Running, Hiking, Fishing, Shooting, Racing, etc.).

You could buy a frame and interchange the frames according to whatever the occasion; polarized for fishing, full colored Iridiums for those bright days, Persimmon for those cloudy days, high bright yellow for night motoring, or just clear for working in the shop.

I recommend the Oakley M-Frames to anyone that is very sport active.

Absolutely the best that I have ever owned. I have had other "high" end sungasses, Oakley, Ray Ban highstreet, Bolle, Costa Del Mar and have been more pleased with the Maui Jims than any of them. I have the Titanium Sports and they are extremely light weight but highly effective. No hint of glare. No eye strain or squinting.
