  • 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 1 additional set
  • 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 rose-base lenses are ideal for low and medium to nighttime light
  • Scratch- and impact-resistant Carbonic™ lenses use Tapered Lens Technology from Smith™ 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
  • Grilamid® TR90 lightweight nylon frames offer a consistent fit and flexibility in all temperatures and are extremely impact-resistant
  • 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)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Proud Smith Optics Sponsored Rider Always a bit primpy when it comes to buying sunglasses. Got a small mellon and small nose, so I'm a bit stupid when it comes to stepping out into the unknown when it comes to buying a new pair of shades. Decided to step into these sunglasses from the Hideouts that I've previously bought for a different look and loved them from the second I opened the shipping box! Fit and feel on the face is just awesome. Don't even feel like you have shades on at all. Already looking into my next colorway and order coming in again soon. As always, order was sent out same day I placed it, customer service has always surprised me by the way it goes out of their way to cater to their riders. Thank again for the support and keep pumping out the great products!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight, stylish and surprisingly durable As a climbing and canyoneering guide in Moab, Utah, I am constantly putting gear to the test. Sunglasses are an essential piece of equipment. These sunglasses have stood up to hundreds of days on the rock and in the sand. They are lightweight enough that I barely notice them on my face, but durable enough to take the constant beating of 40 mph sandstorms, unrelenting UV and guarantee that I'll drop them, drag them and cram them in my pack on a daily basis. The interchangeable lenses are a quick and easy to deal with. Bottom line...These are the most practical sunglasses I have ever owned and they're pretty cute too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply the best I have been wearing either Ray Ban Aviator or Smith slider style sunglasses (when introduced) most of my life. These glasses provide me with the most versatile eye protection I have experienced. The wraparound interchangeable lenses are stylish as well as functional for most every activity. Driving, flying, golfing, biking, river rafting and ocean sports are but a few of the activities that I find them excellent in use. I especially like the coverage without any visual obstruction. These glasses are ultimately the best.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Love the frame, hate the lenses After the first week of wearing around town, I would have given them 5 stars. Then I wore them for 4 long days of biking and am giving them a generous 2 star review. I have the pearl with bronze lens and there are little tiny spots all over that the mirror has come off. We can't figure out what could have caused it. We don't use aerosol sunscreen, nothing I use on my bike is ever sprayed, its very strange. I have 2 other brands of mirrored lens glasses that were half the price and after biking thousands of miles with them (one pair I've had for almost 15 years) there is only one tiny scratch. These made it one week and and the lenses are shot. Very disappointing. However, the frame is awesome; no fogging, stays put on your face, and they look super cute when I'm running or biking or just running errands. I haven't contacted Smith about the lens issue yet, but hopefully a replacement lens won't have the same problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Sunglasses! I've always worn Smith sunglass, but they've never been with the replaceable lenses. When I was a raft guide, I worried I'd lose a lens while out and about. Now that I have a pair of Parallel sunglasses, I realize that my worries were unnecessary. Lenses are very easy to remove, yet they are very secure while in use. If I had to list a con, it would be with the selection of additional lenses included in the box. In addition to the polarized brown lens, mine included an ignitor (purple/red-ish) lens and a clear lens. I don't know if will ever use either. I would have loved a gray or a platinum lens. I don't think REI sells additional lenses... Overall, a great product. I'm glad I bought them!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Sport Sun Glasses I've had these glasses for almost a year now, and I've been very pleased. The frames have maintained their shape, and the pads have not shown any sign of deterioration. Very comfortable even for long periods of time. These glasses stay put during runs and bootcamp workouts. They have even managed to stay on a few times when I've gotten knocked off my board into the water!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Spectacular!! The Parallel series are flawless!! I have very sensitive eye's and with these polarized lenses I don't feel blinded by the sun or snow. They are great from snowboarding to golf. A quick change of the lens and off again. I compared to a lot of models from Oakley and Spy... and for the price it's a must buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Impressed I did a lot of research and kept coming back to this brand and model. Upon reciept of my glasses I was happy with my decision. The fit is excellent, finish is outstanding, and the polarized lens works very well with my contacts. Already had one friend order his own pair after trying mine.
