Smiths for me from now on...

Much like Chris, these were my first pair of "high end" sunglasses. At first I was hesitant about spending this kind of money on sunglasses, but after buying fifteen dollar sunglasses at the local department store for the past 20 years, I figured the cost would offset itself eventually. I really didn't expect the Smiths to be all THAT much better than any other pair of polarized sunglasses, but WOW was I wrong! These things are super clear and really cut down the glare from the water. Sight fishing is improved greatly. Cheaper brands just don't compare. Only downfall of the Chambers that I've found is after wearing them on the water all day long, they are a little bit uncomfortable. But like I said, it's not until after a really long day on the water. I've decided that here on out, Smiths will be all I wear.

Smith Optics Chamber Sunglasses

These are the first pair of "high end" glasses I have ever owned and the first pair of glass lenses for me as well. They are supposed to be for folks with larger noggins but I find them a bit tight for me. If I am wearing them for an all day run I will usually put the frames on the outside of my buff to keep the pressure at a minimum. It only starts to bother me after about 8 hours though. As far as color and clarity, I haven't found an equal. I can wear another pair of my shades for a bit then put these on and the difference is striking. When these bit the dust I will try on some other pairs but I will for sure replace them with another glass pair with the Chroma Pop lenses.
