Solid activity specs

Lots of coverage, super light weight. Always nice to have interchangeable lenses - like a swiss army knife of glasses. Smith stuff has always proven durable for me and these are in line with that.

For Da Ladies

I bought these for my special lady friend, and she's stoked. They fit well, don't fog, and she's a huge fan of the replaceable lenses.

Love the extra lenses

These glasses fit so great and I really like the rose colored lens that it comes with. I think they call it Ignitor. Anyway - great for afternoon bike rides and driving around on those cloudy winter days. Love em!

Super awesome value!

I got these on a deal, and they were about half the price of the equivalent Oakleys. I liked the Flak Jackets better for overall sturdiness, but couldn't justify the price difference. These fit my face perfectly, keep out the rays, and I'll probably lose them anyways. Lots of lens choices, but I only find myself using them for super bright days. Great ventilation when you're pushing it, even for a sweater like me. Snatch them up if you need a toss-around pair!
