  • Polarized lenses reduce 99% of visible glare from water, snow, sand and pavement for increased visual acuity and decreased eye strain
  • Each frame includes 1 set of polarized lenses (tint depends on frame color) and 2 additional sets of lenses for a total of 3 sets of lenses
  • Brown frames feature polarized brown lenses that block reflected glare while providing increased depth perception and reducing eye strain
  • Black frames feature polarized gray lenses that block reflected glare while preserving natural colors in order to provide true color definition
  • Non-polarized, additional lenses are ideal for low and medium to nighttime light
  • Scratch- and impact-resistant Carbonic™ lenses use Smith Tapered Lens Technology to provide distortion-free vision
  • Tapered Lens Technology contours the thickness of the lens so that light travels through without distortion—what you see is what you get
  • Hydrophilic Megol™ nosepiece and temple ends become tackier when wet for reliable grip during exercise and hot weather
  • 9-base-curve lenses; (the higher the number the more curved the lens—Smith features sunglasses with 6, 7, 8 and 9 base curvature)

by fromNice glasses I purchased these Smith sunglasses after I returned a different brand of sunglasses. The lenses are much clearer and do not show distortion the way the other brand of sunglasses did. They come with three sets of lenses, dark polarized, a lighter set and one clear. I used them on vacation in Hawaii. The dark polarized lenses were great in the bright sun. This is the second pair of Smith sunglasses I have owned. Next time I won't bother trying a different brand.

by fromGreat sunglasses! this product is great. I have tried many different sunglasses mainly oakleys, raybans, some arnettes but they all where more concerned with style and cost. I feel smith really created something special with these. I use to get headaches with the other glasses contributed largely to the concavity of the lense. These glasses are really clear when you put them on and I can wear them all day without headaches. They stay on no matter which way you are looking thanks to the inner grips on the inside of the ear arms on the glasses. Comes with 2 other lenses clear and a pinkish hue. those are great too since I also shoot with these glasses. The other brands cannot compare these glasses are great.

by fromComfortable and good value These glasses are light weight, comfortable and fit well. The different colored lenses are a great feature. The dark lenses are great for sunny days but the rose and clear are better options for cloudy and dark days. They don't slide off when the sweat is coming down, or even when I rode several miles in a rain storm trying to get back to the car. They did fog up a bit when the humidity and perspiration were high; but most glasses do that.

by fromGreat multi-lens glasses. These are great performers and the design and value surpass the more expensive Oakley models I tried in the store. They do a good job protecting my eyes when I wear contacts. The Max and D versions have lots of coverage. Know that Smith has many lens color options to further tune or customize the performance you can get. The Ignitor lenses are a perfect color if you are a MTB rider going in and out of tree cover. The grey polarized lenses are very dark and the clear are just what you want for night time mountain biking. The product might only be topped if the mid lens were also polarized but non-polarized can have advantages such as reading a watch, phone or your car's displays.

by fromComfortable, Minimalist Design These are very comfortable sunglasses with a minimalist design that make them very light. They provide great coverage and crystal clear views of our lovely world. I have a fairly small had and these fit me very well, unlike many sunglasses.

by fromAwesome shades This shades are awesome. I have owned other brands and these are excellent! A good fit and good optics. Someone stole my second pair, and I just bought my third. I'd recommend them.
