Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic These sunglasses are fantastic. So fantastic I had to order a second pair of them with Chromapop Polarized. Needless to say, I will never be returning to standard or even just plain polarized. Colors really do pop and glare is cut out almost completely. Although these are considered "Liftstyle" sunglasses, I find myself using them snowboarding, biking or playing volleyball over my more expensive athletic pair bought from a different company. Pleasantly surprised and glad I decided to jump off the band wagon and try a new brand. They stick to your head like glue, in a good way.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fitting frame and amazing Chromapop Lenses I spend all my time outdoors and am always wearing sunglasses. I have had pairs from the most expensive companies to the cheapest and I keep coming back to Smith Optics. This time around I tried the Outlier's with Chromapop lenses and all I can say I *** W O W ***. I thought my Maui Jim's and Costa's were clear, the Chromapop lenses are even clearer and really does make everything more pleasant. The frame is a very good medium fit. Large enough to cover they eyes and give good coverage, but not too big that they looks bulky on your face.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Perfect Pair I absolutely love these glasses. I have a large, square face and they fit perfectly. I spent years with glasses that have cheap polarized lens so these are a breath of fresh air. Crystal clear and work perfectly on the brightest, clearest days. The grips on these lens work very well without pulling my hair—I haven't had any problem with my glasses slipping. My favorite thing about them has to be their stylish practicality. They are perfectly safe for biking because of the shatter resistant lens without making you look like you have aerodynamic bug eyes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Buy After losing a pair of old Ray Ban specs that traveled the globe with me I went in search of a somewhat similar style the offered the same stylish polarized optical protection from the super bright days. Smith Outlier's covered all the bases and then some. The frame is durable and flexible (not stretchy) enough for a little rough housing taking on and off, but the lenses are a work of the Almighty haha. Polarized and shield the eyes from all the discomforts of bright light but also make colors a bit more vivid. Greens are greener and things just look better when they are on. My mates call them Instagram glasses, but truly a good buy and I'd recommend them to anyone interested.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not what I was expecting (better) Was actually shopping for brand "O" when I came across the display stand for Smith Optics. Grabbed these off the shelf and I was surprised at the fit, comfort, feel, and especially the price. I'd highly recommend these specific shades. First time owning Smith Optics after having owned a lot of the other mainstream and expensive sunglasses. I'll definitely be coming back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Rx-able Sport Sunglasses! I am a professional optician. I wear my Smith Outliers almost all the time, despite owning other high end performance sunwear from other manufacturers. They are perfect for all my adventures, including high altitude climbing, fishing, hiking, hunting, and skiing. This is such a well thought-out pair of sunglasses. With their medium-large fit and keyhole bridge, they fit most people well. The super grippy nosepads and temples make them very secure when things get hot. Their coverage provides superb sun protection, almost as good as glacier glasses. The Evolve frame material is super tough but also light for all day comfort. I also love this frame because it is a 6 base curvature, which makes them great for mounting Rx sun lenses in. I have put about 10 patients into this specific model and they all love them. The stock Smith lenses are great too, especially now that Smith is offering the Outlier in Chromapop. I see and sell many different sunglass models, and this is what I choose to wear myself. Enough said.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Piece have done it again. I love how these glasses look and feel. I am always outside playing in the mountains and these are my go-to shades for 95% of what I do (hike, run, bike, kayak, ski). Just like any other Smith product, the Outlier is killing it on quality. Only gripe with these are the slip on rubber piece ear pieces instead of a rubber over mold. I can not use coakies and it seems like it was a cut corner. Let me know when you come out with the outlier 2.0 and I will be first in line!!! Overall, great jobs Smith.
