  1. Default Smith sunglasses; Mirror or not?

    Hi, Im MartinA.

    Im gone buy a pair of Smith Optics sunglasses to see the fish beneath the water-surface.

    I am going for Polarchromic Copper glass-lenses, but can choose Copper or Copper Mirror..

    Have anyone of you tried both Copper and Copper Mirror for this purpose? Any difference?

    I prefer the 'Copper' over the 'Copper Mirror'. Not sure if the fish care but I would think that the shiny mirrored copper would reflect light. Plus I get images of a 80's era mirrored Rayban aviator wearing prison warden / guard when I see mirrored lenses

    The copper offers great contrast & the right amount of 'photochromatic' behavior to make them very effective in both high and low light environments.

    Smith cooper are great, I avoid the mirror as well because they reduce visible light transmission to your eyes.

    Since trout apparently are not interested in how cool I look in my mirrored aviators, i use non-mirrored.
