Smith Optics® Parallel Max Polarized Sunglasses
I tried on every pair of performance sunglasses I could, expecting to buy Oakley's. Oakley's tend to be overstyled, trendy, and not actually comfortable on my face. The Parallel Max's are perfect--true performance glasses. They've been with me on hot (6 mile, 100 degree) mid-summer Texas hikes, long runs, countless mountain bike rides, backpacking trips, all day drives, and even look good with a suit and tie. I lost my first pair on a backpacking trip and immediately replaced them. The fit is perfect, they never move (even when sweaty), the colors look clear and brilliant. I highly recommend!!!

I have several Smith sunglasses. They range from safety glasses to the expensive dating frames. I recently received the Parallel Max. They turned out better then expected. I was amazed at the quality of the frames. I was expecting a light fragile frame. They were far from it. The lenses slipped out easily and the new ones went in flawless. I used the rose color for cocktails the night I got them and worked great. I would highly recommend these lenses for anyone who is active and wants a well made product.

Most comfortable sunglasses for casual use and outdoor active lifestyle
As a longtime happy Smith sunglass wearer, I replaced the pair after years of demanding use with the Parallel Max right before a golf tournament on a very bright day in San Diego. I was reminded how comfortably light and securely Smith glasses wear. I did not notice i was wearing them through all 18 holes, they were so comfortable, allowing free air flow. I also like that I can flip them up securely over my forehead or place them over my golf hat. The polarization kept my eyes rested. Awesome!

Highly Recommended for all activities
I wear Smith and only Smith sunglasses. Constantly being exposed to every element imaginable working in the outdoors I rely heavily on protecting my eyes from sun, wind, and glare. After losing my other pair, I instantly bought the Parallel Max again after the cover they provide and the lightness of them. I love the polarized lenses and the fact that Smith warranties are outstanding is a huge selling point. I recommend Smith products to all of my buddies.
