Rated 5 out of 5 by Thawkeye 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Larueski Yellow lense is the mirror not the lense
I bought these glasses for mountain biking in shaded light are long shadows for better clarity. Yellow lenses are really good for minimizing the effects of shade. Bummed the lenses are not yellow just the mirror. Not well explained on the web site. Otherwise the glasses are great. Good coverage , clear and lightweight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kozeyshack 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!

I have been a long time fan of Smith Optics from ski goggles to sun glasses. I recently had to warranty my Factors, thinking that just my lenses would be replaced. Upon further inspection the rep stated they were going to swap them out and recommended the Parallel Max as a replacement. Great glasses and great customer support. Thanks Smith for making a great product and standing behind it! I look forward to many more years with my new shades.
