Description

Nothing fishy.

You can't catch the fish if you can't see the fish (or so we've been told), so it's not surprising that Smith's Guide's Choice Polarized ChromaPop Sunglasses are ridiculously popular with anglers of all stripes. The ChromaPop polarized lenses are made to boost color, increase contrast, and cut glare like you wouldn't believe, so staying on the water all day won't burn your retinas, and the eight-base curve gives the Guide's Choice a snug wraparound fit that prevents rays from sneaking in the sides of your eyes. To keep your shades stuck on your face, Smith included hydrophilic megol nose and temple pads, premium Italian spring hinges, and even a detachable leash that'll make sure you don't spend the day trying to fish your sunnies off the sea floor.

First pair of ChromaPop - BOOM!

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

These sunglasses have been awesome for hiking, mountain biking and general use. The clarity of ChromaPop is second to none, this being my first experience with the technology every time I put them on I'm blown away! Great protection from sun, I have fairly sensitive eyes so this is a big plus for me. Do smudge up extremely easy, but I guess that's why you take care of them. These also look great, at least on some people.

I own 3 pair!

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

I have 2 pair of the Guides Choice in the techlite (glass) and one pair of these Chromapops. The fit on my face is incredible as I have a larger-than-average melon. If you haven't tried Chromapop, I would highly recommend it to you. Colors appear deeper and more intense, especially on bright spring days :) I have the bronze mirror lenses and I really enjoy them for everyday activities. I usually use the Techlite Green or Ignitor lenses for fishing, but the Bronze would work well too. Get yourself a pair, you won't regret it!

I own 3 pair!

Great Fishing Option

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

Picked these up with the polarized chromopop+ amber lenses, replacing some Costa Blackfin 580P Green mirrors, for fishing the local rivers. The chromopop+ polarized lenses work great for spotting fish without straining my eyes. While still a big fan of my Costas, the Guides Choice are noticeable lighter on my head. They also feature a detachable leash, a thoughtful touch on some well-rounded fishing glasses. Lastly, I highly recommend springing the extra $ for the chromopop+ lens.

Would Be Amazing For Fishing

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Seeing how most reviews I've read about the Guides Choice are from a fisherman's perspective, I should say: I don't fish. I got these to replace my 6 year old Native Trango's for everyday wear, hiking, and as a backup for mountain biking.

The first thing I noticed is how stunning the world looks with these on. I've never experienced sunglasses that make the day look so great - the colors pop and everything looks like it's in HD. To match the lenses, the fit is spot-on. It has a great base curve, for full coverage, and the large arms do a great job at blocking out the sun. While wearing them casually, there's not much to complain about.

Now, for the negatives. Being someone with very sensitive eyes, I need a darker lens for very bright days. While these are great in the afternoon, they're not dark enough for me when it comes to the morning/evening sun. Also, I haven't found the megol nose & temple pads to be very effective. While great against dry skin, while wearing them backpacking this past weekend, they consistently slipped down my nose. It wasn't a pain to deal with, but it worries me for future activities.
