Smith Lowdown Slim Polarized ChromaPop Sunglasses

Live in high-definition.

Give your old, scratched-up shades a rest, and upgrade to the mind-blowing clarity of the Smith Lowdown Slim Polarized ChromaPop Sunglasses. Smith's ChromaPop lens eliminates color confusion, boosting visual acuity and optical definition for brighter, bolder colors. 100% UV protection shields your eyes from harmful solar radiation on the brightest days of the year. And since it's polarized, the lens filters out distracting glare from reflective surfaces, such as blinding ocean bays and shimmering snow.

Based off Smith's iconic Lowdown Sunglasses, the Lowdown Slim takes a narrower shape, making it ideal for female wearers and those with smaller faces. The sunglasses' Evolve Rislan frame retains a lightweight feel for hours of continuous comfort. Plus, it's made of 53% bio-based material for a lighter environmental impact. Other key features include non-slip Megol nose pads and premium Auto-lock hinges for durability.

So Plush

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

The Lowdown Slim glasses fit extremely well and the pads are a nice feature as I was able to wear the glasses all day without any discomfort or them sliding down my nose. I've worn these while biking, paddle boarding and climbing without needing to adjust them during my activity. They make a great casual wear as well. The Chromapop feature is always amazing with clarity, color and definition. They are a game changer and they definitely get the work done!

Great fit and optics. I have a hard time finding sunglasses that fit right as I have a smaller face. These get the job done and work flawlessly. The optics are fantastic. Life in HD.

I have trouble finding sunglasses where the frame fits my face, often times the frames are too big and they are too wide. The slim and women's specific of these sunglasses fit my face, they are perfect when i'm hanging out with friends, hiking, or biking. I'm happy with the lens choice, as they make the sunglasses easy to use for any sport!

I got these for my hubby. His says they are his most favorite fishing lens, ever. He's hard to shop for, so I'm so freakin happy I was able to pick a winner!! He is actually taking really good care of this pair, which is amazing!! He usually trashes everything.

He love the tint, not to red or yellow. He also likes the Chromopop, which is new to him. It just makes everything look better. Plus, it pulls out the color of the fish, which is helpful.

They are really comfortable, as well. No pressure points on this frame! The fit is good, for him. He has a more narrow head, but they don't fall off or slide.

Awesome Sunglasses

Chromapop is the greatest thing that has happened to sunglasses since polarization! I am on my second pair of Lowdowns. They fit snug and tight on my small-ish face so I'm never worried that they will fall off while out backpacking, biking, climbing etc. I can't speak highly enough about these sunglasses!

Lowdown - Polarized

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I love the Smith Lowdown sunglasses so much, I'm on my third pair. They are not too wide or big, so they are perfect for a smaller face. I've worn them both casually, as well as hiking, touring, etc. They are very durable, and do not show any wear from using during activities. They also tend to stay in place really well. I finally dropped in on a polarized pair with ChromaPop, and it was definitely worth the splurge!

Great pair of shades

    Got these as a gift for my Mom. Purchased the SLIM version and they fit her great. She has a narrower dome and these seemed to do the trick. Oh, and the ChromaPop, greatest thing ever.
