I purchased these sunglasses mainly for fly fishing, where they are outstanding (I'd say 95% of performance @ 50% price).

They are also excellent for driving. Due to my job as Key Account Manager for a company that supplies robotic products for the mining industry I drive a lot along and across th... Read More

    SMITH makes the best glasses and stands behind their Lifetime garantee. I have owned numerous pairs and SMITH has taken care of any issues I've ever had. The Shelter glasses are great for larger faces/heads. I use these in my sport activities (biking, running, climbing) and they stay on my face so well I forget they are there.

    Love the look and feel of these glasses. The tinting is great. The only problem I have with these glasses is that the shape of them will absolutely not allow them to stay on the top of my head. Lets say I go in to a dark are, pop them up top, lean forward (or backward) plop, they are on the ground. That really doesn't help a quality pair of shades last very long. I haven't owned these for long but they are pretty beat up because of the shape of the glasses. Because of that I actually wear these glasses more than any other pair because I'm not afraid to be rough with them but I get annoyed with them non stop.

    Great product from smith. The copper lenses are terrific and the frames are incredibly comfortable because they are a bit wider. The price cannot be beat from sierra.

    Smith makes a great product, if only my husband wouldn't lose them so often ;)

    I purchased these sunglasses mainly for fly fishing, where they are outstanding (I'd say 95% of performance @ 50% price).

    They are also excellent for driving. Due to my job as Key Account Manager for a company that supplies robotic products for the mining industry I drive a lot along and across the Atacama Desert. These sunglasses excel at cutting glare.

    There is an "elbow" near the tip of the arms: it is a smoother section that allows the tip to bend a little. It is a smart feature because the tips pressure against the back of the ear is smoother. They are really very comfortable in this area.

    They are not your extremely hiper ultra light sunglasses. I do not think they are best for running (although I do not run)

    This is my second pair of Smiths. The polarization is very good, they are comfortable and protective. I would say they are not for the smallest faces. If I could change something I would tint these a bit darker, but no big issue.
