Goodbye Wrinkles

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

To be honest... I bought these glasses initially to get as much coverage on my eyes and face as possible. Sun exposure can cause some pretty serious eye conditions, like cataracts and not to mention, wrinkles. No thanks. Prevention prolongs the inevitable, but at least my skin and eyes will stay younger longer. The first time I wore these outside was insane... I didn't think I'd notice a difference with the polarized and choromapop lenses, but everything is super clear and visually appealing. I would highly recommend spending the money for a REALLY nice pair of sunnies.

Another Worthy Purchase

After losing my other pair of Lowdown XL's, I vowed to not lose my next pair. In order to make sure that was going to happen I decided to upgrade to these polarized versions of the same glasses. I didn't expect the lens quality to have such a noticeable difference! The lenses provide for a much more pleasant sunlight viewing experience with brights still being bright and darks not being washed out, while sunlight being perfectly comfortable to look at! Overall, the best pair of glasses I've ever owned, and I know what to get when I lose these again (which should hopefully not be for a couple months!)

Not salty about my Smith Salty Crew's!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

My Smith Salty Crew edition XL's are awesome and deliver excellent vision clarity and protection from the rays in all directions! Always been a Smith Optics fan but haven't bought any in the last few years and must say they have a hit with the chromapop tech. I pretty much only buy polarized lenses now and with Smith's warranty I'll never have to worry about being dissatisfied with their shades! Also, have them in the bronze mirror chromapop version and they are just as amazing...never hurts to have a backup/alternate pair!

Smith does not disappoint

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Great sunglasses! I have a hard time finding shades that will fit my large skull.. They look great, and the ChromaPop is as advertised. I was an Oakley customer for the last 15 years, and so far, Smith has one up'd Oakley.. I may never go back.

Great Coverage

    I like wider fitting glasses with a little more coverage, these fit the bill!

    Wide head problem solved!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This pair of sunglasses has easily become my favorite pair of shades, I use it for just about everything. Super stylish and great clarity! I struggle to find a great pair of sunglasses due to a wider than normal head and once I put this pair on, I was very impressed. Love them and I will continue to buy them as they release more colors and styles in Smith's XL line. I have the Salty Crew color which is blue tint and I love the look.

    Perfect Fit

    • Fit: True to size

    The coverage on these is second-to-none. They are probably the only lifestyle sunny I've owned that protects on all sides as well as a sport shade. If you're on the fence about which lens to go with, just make sure it's a Chromapop - The level of contrast makes the price worthwhile.

    Easy five Stars

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    These shades make anyone look good. Oversized and awesome!
    I have a head like a bowling ball and these fit perfect...the funny thing is my wife (very petite) can wear them too and they have that over-sized styley look when she wears them.
    The polarized chromapop is the best optics in this price category I've come across.
    Yes, they are a little pricey, but worth it. Your getting similar clarity to sunglasses priced twice what these will cost.
    I accidentally purchased the matte olive camo thinking they were matte black. They are more of an army green in person, not too flashy but still noticeable.

    Favorite shades

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I have had the Lowdown for years and recently gave the Lowdown XL a shot. I like the extra coverage and the fit is still great. They have a casual look but hold just fine for mountain biking and other activities. The Chromapop lens is top notch and the clarity and sharpness is impressive.

    Great shades

    I love these shades, good fit that stay on your head easy for any activity. The Chomopop lens makes everything pop and gives you the ability to see through shadows on a sunny day. great buy.
