Polarized perfection

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These sunglasses by Smith are great, the polarized lens provides clear and protective vision, the light weight frame is extremely durable, and the nose padding is very comfortable. I would certainly recommend these glasses for anyone looking for a sport specific option, I use them skiing, biking, and running!

Great lens but maybe wrong frame color

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: Runs small

I ordered the matte graphite frame, but what came was very dark black. I got three lens: platinum (polarized), ignitor, and red (don't know exactly what red). I decided to go for a ride in them with the red lens. The red lens were great for dappled/sunny/shaded areas. I used to think polarized lens were a must, but I've been changing my opinion because they are so dark in shade and low light, which tends to be the conditions I ride in. The problem was I spent the entire ride totally aware of the black frames. However, I liked the 2-position nose piece, and they definitely seem to fit well (i.e., female face). Because of the fit and lens, I was really torn about keeping them or returning, but will return. I gave them 5 stars because I think they are great glasses, but I just couldn't live with the frame color.

Not for Men

    Despite navigating to Men's glasses, this pair shows up. But the description suggests these are not for men! "Smith Approach Women's Polarized Sunglasses" Just wanted potential buyers to beware.

    Great Sunglasses

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs small

    I've never really been one to get sunglasses, but finally decided it was time since I'll be getting eye surgery soon. These sunglasses are incredibly comfortable, look sleek, and feel really durable. Additionally, they come with two extra pairs of lenses. I would recommend these for anyone looking for a decent pair of all-around sunglasses. Absolutely worth the money.

    Lenses too small

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: Runs small

    My head is normal sized, the lenses are too small, I gave the glasses to my 12 year old who needed a birthday present. Unless an adult has a very small head, forget it.

    I have a longer, bigger face. These fit fairly small and high up on my nose bridge. Just didn't fit.
