Smith Challis Polarized ChromaPop+ Sunglasses $219.00
See things differently.
For those seeking a tighter fit and slightly smaller lens profile, turn to the Smith Polarized ChromaPop+ Challis Sunglasses. Cutting glare and enhancing vividness, the polarized ChromaPop+ lens delivers exceptional clarity, high contrast, and dynamic color optimization to make the world around you, well, pop.
The lens also has a hydroleophobic front and back coating for a super-slippery surface that repels any moisture, grease, and grime you might collect through your adventures. When conditions get wet, the hydrophilic Megol nose and temple pads increase their adhesion for a reliable grip through almost any weather. An eight-base curvature provides a downright vast field of vision, while the stainless steel spring hinges smoothly adapt to different head sizes for a snug fit.

- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
No doubt the best set of optics I've ever worn. These glasses blow Costas away. I wear the Matte Tortoise with Copper Mirror lens. So light. So clear, and the color is incredible. I see more fish than I used to. Do yourself a favor and get these! I have a slightly narrow face and these look awesome. No too big like many other models. I am on my second set - unfortunately lost my first pair to the river while drifting...Had to have another pair!
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Size Bought: Matte Black/Platinum
These are by far my favorite sunglasses I have ever owned! They fit perfectly and are super comfortable, even after wearing them for over 8 hours straight at the beach. The best part is how they make colors just pop! Everything is very crisp and vivid, and the polarization cuts out the glare!
They area also holding up very well to different water conditions and abuse. I have submerged these in the Pacific Ocean, the Caribbean Sea, and even in the fresh waters of Utah's reservoirs. After a quick cleaning the glasses look brand new, even after being dropped in the sand multiple times.
If you are looking for a great pair of polarized glasses then give these a try, they are truly amazing!
