Guiding bonefish in the winter months I need the best glasses not only for protections, but for the ability to help spot fish.
I've used sunglasses from the other major companies and none give me the confidence as much as Smith.
The photochromic finish is THE BEST out there- hands down.
Having pretty much been given the opportunity to join the pro-purchase program from a different company, I actually declined them and applied for Smith- that's how much better I find Smith's lenses to be.

These are my personal favorite. Black with polarized lens. The hinged frame allows for a perfect fit. Slightly heavier but still easy to wear all day.

The optical clarity of Smith polarchromatic ignitor lenses is excellent. I like the contrast pop that the lenses provide. The Chiefs have become my go-to sunglasses for traveling, cycling and around town. They're stylish with excellent coverage.
These are my favorites and I have had many brands of sunglasses over the years.
I have used them for summer skiing and like the chromatic effect. The ignitor polarchromatic is excellent when you're going from high contrast to low contrast situations- like the ones you experience mountain biking in the PNW. Also a great driving lenses- I prefer the ignitor tint to gray or brown lenses.

I have always searched for the one lens quiver and found it with the polarchromic copper lens. I bought these for casual use but find myself wearing them for just about all of my outdoor pursuits. I had to ding the quality due to crack I endured on the second day of owning. They slipped off my hat and fell right on the apex of the lens and cracked. Yes, a total bummer and my fault but it's really not all that noticeable and the wide range of use and conditions allowed me to overlook the crack and it really doesn't mess with my vision. Five stars with one cracked lens speaks volumes to how amazing I have found this pair of shades. The Chief provides fantastic protection without the feel or look of an over sized frame.
