Default Re: Sunglasses

Another vote for the Smiths. I opted for the frames with the Polarchromic copper techlite lenses. These are terrific against glare and the polarization is fantastic. They are also photochromatic so the tint changes with available light. I have found this great when fishing early in the morning or into dusk. The copper tint is particularly good in bringing out the contrast in freshwater (shady, small streams with vegetation)

Another thing is that the Techlite lenses are made from glass (not polycarbonate) so there is little chance of scratching them & they have very little 'birefringence' (distortion) issues that can sometimes exist in polycarbonate lenses.

Finally, I don't work for Smith ...just love them after experimenting with some of the other comparable brands.
