Rated 5 out of 5 by from Way cool Prospect I bought a pair of these b4 I headed to Hawaii for two weeks. I don't care how Haole I was, because I was rocking these sweet shades. Chicks dig 'em and so does everyone else. The fit is mid/slim...not too big, maybe slightly on the smaller side of medium. The rubber nose and temple pads kept them in place while hiking the NaPali Coast and golfing at Kapalua. You can't go wrong here, just get 'em!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Glasses For The Money I was looking for a good pair of glasses that would not break the bank and I think I found a good fit. Had them for a month and have not scratched them yet. They seem to be quality. I only wish they did not have the rubber on the side pieces that grip to keep them on. I get the point that it keeps them in place, but I do not like that they do not slide on because they grip hair. Overall, satisfied with the purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid Shades Smith has been going a direction I'm not exactly thrilled with until these came out. The dopey looking squared framed designed to look good with shaggy hair and trucker caps wasn't cutting it for us 30 years olds.. These have a Simple design with outdoorsy style. They are very durable shades and the nose/temple pads are super comfy and keep the shades in place. They fog up a bit on mountain bike rides (most shades do) but its tolerable. Hiking, fishing, and climbing in these are great and they have decent coverage. The only real negative is the lettering/print on the inside of the temple pc rubs off very quickly. Not sure if its due to the evolve eco-freindly design or what? Its not a huge issue but it does kinda of annoy me. Bottom line, these are great, stylish, simple, comfy, and durable shades that will look good on a medium sized head. I'm coming of the ever popular smith methods and these were a nice replacement. They still need to bring back the Method though!!!! They Rock!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfortable But Fogs Constantly These glasses fit well, like the comfortable cushions on the frame for the nose and ears. Most plastic glasses don't have them and it's a nice feature because it keeps it on my face. Not enough venting so these glasses are constantly fogging up and wet because it's such a snug fit on my face. Good for day to day, not my favorite glasses ever, but the quality is good and they are made well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shades I bought the prospect matte black and polarized blue mirror lense mostly for bass fishing. I will probably buy another pair with different lenses for cloudy days on the water. If you have a big round head I don't think the prospect will work for you but for slim guys with a long face, these will fit great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pair of sunglasses I have had my pair for over a year now and I love them. They fit great, the lenses are awesome and the look good. I had a pair of oakleys before and these glasses are way better especially for the price.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Break easily This was my 3rd pair of Smith sunglasses. The frames of all three pairs I bought broke at the joints. The first two were covered, but apparently they recently changed their policy and this is no longer covered. Bought them about a year and a half ago and with REI's new 1-year return policy I am forced to just throw them in the garbage. Stinks, waste of money and bad for the environment.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Fogs up to often. These glasses have a clear lens, yet they are tight and fog up consistently and the arms are bulky. While fly fishing all day on the river or guiding its irritating to have these glasses fog up and I think the fit is weak. These will work and are now my backup smiths and Im trying a different frame and glass lens. Hopefully the price tag is worth it. I have enjoyed many styles of smiths over at least 15 years of use and a variety of different frames. When I find a pair I like they change the frame style so it seems hit and miss whenever I purchase another pair. Sometimes I find a pair I really like though and polarized glasses are key for reading the river while floating and fishing. It would be nice if smith focused on the fisherman a bit more and had a large line of glasses for active fisherman that vary in price and be light weigh and more stream line arms and front frame.
