Not chromapopVerified Buyer Reviewed by Marc from Pennsylvania on Saturday, September 29, 2018These are the techlite polarized lenses and not chromapop. The frame and the lenses are not the same quality as my other pair of chromapop. Disappointed with this purchase as it is not what I expected or as it was advertised. Will look into returning or getting a refund.

Awesome!Verified Buyer Reviewed by Fisherman from Colorado on Wednesday, March 7, 2018These glasses are awesome. They fit terrifically and are perfect for fishing and other outdoor sports.
Great SunglassesReviewed by Gt44ever from Michigan on Sunday, January 21, 2018I've been rocking these for a few years and absolutely love them. They fit well, have excellent coverage and amazing clarity. I have a bit smaller face so lot of sunglasses are just too big leaving them looking goofy and leaving gaps for the sun to peak through. These are the opposite and cover well without making me look like a walking pair of sunglasses.
I have the bronze mirror lenses and find they're great down to a fairly heavy overcast and handle full bright sunlight fairly well. You'll squint a bit if you're looking too much into the sun, but otherwise, it's a great, versatile lens color. Works well sight fishing for largemouth too.
My only knock on them is, while they fit well, they're by no means tight. I wouldn't use them for high intensity activities as I'm not sure they'll stay on as they are very light with a fairly flexible frame. They also consistently fall down if I try to perch them on top of my head and I move my head around too much.
Highly recommend these though, especially for a bit smaller than usual profile.
Great clarityVerified Buyer Reviewed by Cbb from Texas on Saturday, December 23, 2017I use these for fly fishing. I have Costas and I think my Smiths have better clarity seeing in the water

“Is there a warranty with that is offered with Smith optics, the frame and the lease. Either manufacturers or an additional to purchase? Since they are clearance can the lenses be replaced? ”
These are an overstock item, which is generally eligible for a Smith Optics warranty, but you would need to contact them directly about that to make certain. We do not offer lens replacement.
