Completely satisfied

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I have used these glasses for two seasons and am completely satisfied. The fit is good, and their performance has been great. I have used them regularly for running, skiing, cycling, hiking, and everyday driving. I throw them in my car or in my cycling bag, wipe fingerprints off with my shirt, and they have held up great to this kind of abuse. No scratches, no problems. I also value the Smith lifetime warranty, knowing if they do break, I can have them replaced. My one complaint is that they do not stay on my head very well when I move them above my forehead (like when I walk inside a dark building.) This is more likely a problem with my head shape than the glasses, but I haven't had this problem before. On the plus side though, they fit my face perfectly. I can wear them for hours without discomfort. Overall very nice shades...
