Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bye bye Oakley! I am a VERY loyal follower of brands and Oakley has has been my go to brand for all things glasses from goggles to biking glasses to everyday prescription glasses. Even though the fit and comfort weren't there I kept telling myself that they were "fine." After wearing the Smith Redmond's for a day I knew that my obtuse, close minded brain needed a lobotomy! The comfort, fit, quality and the spectacular range of vision is uncompromising yet extremely affordable. Thank you Smith for making me reconsider my way of thinking as I start to "age in years!"

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent sun and glare protection combined with crisp, clear vision. The Techlite polarized, photochromic lenses provide excellent sun and glare protection under varying light conditions. This combined with crisp clear vision/imaging makes these sunglasses excellent for a wide variety of conditions from driving to being on the water and pretty much anything in-between. The Redmond frame/shape has a nice 'wrap', providing excellent side coverage. Techlite lenses offer excellent clarity while at the same time being substantially lighter than traditional glass lenses. A great pair of shades!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great optics These are replacement glasses for some other Smith Glass, glasses. I thought I would try the Copper Mirror and have really enjoyed them. Super sharp optics and the photochromic lens are fantastic. Unlike other light sensitive lenses the Techlite lens is very subtle. I never really notice a change in the darkness or lightness. Seems to change seamlessly and un-noticable. Nice wrap-around frames and light weight. Great glasses. I have a Medium to large face and they fit nicely.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not what I expected I've had many pairs of Smith sunglasses--- I always purchased the glass lenses. I thought that's what I was getting with the Redmond. The sales blurb said "...utilizes our premium Cromapop and Techlite glass lens..." I looked around the website to try and get some clarity on what this means and couldn't find any, so I ordered them thinking Chromapop was an enhancement to Techlite. It is not. These came with plastic lenses, although I'm told that somehow Chromapop is not really plastic. I guess I'll see how they hold up. That's where glass really shines is in the durability and resistance to scratches--- most "premium" sunglasses have good clarity when new. Besides that, the frames have cheap looking and feeling shiny plastic frames. These just don't seem to have the quality I've always associated with Smith and don\'t seem like $219 sunglasses.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great glasses. This is my third pair of Smith glass lens sunglasses. I love the lens tint, they're perfect for our mountain sunny days. My one nit-pick is that they're a bit larger glass area than my previous glasses (Maverick) and they move around a bit when I put them up on my head going indoors. Have to be a bit more careful of abrupt head movements or off they fly. It's worth the trade off to have glass versus plastic lenses though for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vintage Smith Smith continues to put out the highest quality products on the market and has long had the best warranty and customer service to back it all up. The Redmond is no exception to the rule. I love these glasses and the Chroma-pop feature is noticeable and a wonderful feature. I have had Smith sunglasses since 2007 but this was my first new pair in 5 years. Thank you Smith for putting forth such a wonderful product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional Sunglasses I've used Smith sunglasses for 10+ years. All have been polarized. This is my 2nd pair of polarchromic sunglasses. I love the spring hinges on these glasses. They make the fit perfect. I also love the new chromapop lenses as they produce a very pleasing visual quality. One wish would be to have them available in matte black with the polarchromic lenses. Love my new glasses!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight and Great Coverage I have been buying Smith sunglasses and MX goggles exclusively for years. I especially like the glass lenses because of their durability. They hold up well, its nearly impossible to scratch them and unless you drop them from an aerial ladder 100' in the air to asphalt they are pretty hard to break (which is why I needed new ones!). You will not be disappointed with them!
