"The Grass Really Is Greener"

By 

from Bangor, ME, USA

Comments about Smith Lowdown Sunglasses:

Ever heard the saying "The grass is always greener on the other side"? Well these Chromapop Lowdowns really are!!! No, literally, the grass and everything else you look at has such vibrant and beautiful color, it's almost unreal. The clarity is incredible. I had been waiting to get my hands on these for about 2 months since they were out of stock. Now I finally have them, and I can see what all the talk is about. The quality is spot on and I love the rubber panels on the nose and ears to help prevent them from slipping off your face. I could see the rubber wearing or splitting over time but so far so good! Seems pretty durable for the most part. The fit is perfect - I'd say I have a Medium sized face and these are an awesome fit. Overall, these are hands-down the best pair of sunglasses I have ever invested in and I am glad I waited. No complaints, even if I tried.

Pop!

By 

from Vermont

Comments about Smith Lowdown Sunglasses:

Just picked up these in the Chromapop Polarized Gray Green and I can't tell you how much I love them. These lenses are unlike any other polarized lense I've tried where the clarity and the rich tones are truly worth every penny. The amount of coverage is perfect for me but I do enjoy a larger coverage, which is why I don't understand why Smith describes the Lowdown's coverage as medium. In my opinion they're a large to medium fit but I do have a smaller face. The nose and temple pads assure me these will not fall off my face even if I'm going on a hike or even taking a run. Sometimes I don't even realize I'm wearing them. The fit/style feels super solid and Smith did an excellent job on these glasses. I will defiantly grab a few more Lowdown's in different lenses in the near future because I just enjoy how they look. The rich tones, clarity and colors that these lenses bring out even on a slightly overcast day is amazing. If you have the money, don't even consider purchasing anything else because the Chromapop lenses will not disappoint.

Comfortable, great quality, but doesn't fit well on my face.

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Smith Lowdown Sunglasses:

Without trying them on I bought online because they looked very stylish. They are good looking , however they sit on my face fairly high. I feel I have a medium face (width and height) with medium height nose and the width on these are fine, just not how high they fit. The tops of the glasses go just above my eyebrows making them look odd on my face. I got the black w/ polarized grey lens and the quality and clarity seem very good. Comfortable and lightweight also. I'd recommend these, but just make sure to try on.

They have done it again...

By 

from Los Angeles, CA

Comments about Smith Lowdown Sunglasses:

I'm a long time Smith user and have owned a pair of Chiefs forever. I was literally convinced you couldn't get better than the lens I previously owned until minutes ago I experienced Chromopop on my band new pair of Lowdowns. I unpackaged the frames and walked outside and the colors and clearness on the Lowdowns are the best lenses I have ever come across. I have used Smiths for fly fishing for years so I ordered the brown lens (works best for me with the water) and can say yet again they have enhanced their product that will now enhance my lifestyle. Can't wait to cast with Chromopop! That or just sit down with a cold beer and stare at the ocean, they are that good. Something else I noticed is how locked onto the face these frames are. They are not going anywhere during any minor physical activity. I ordered the lowdowns as a casual shade for day to day use but they will definitely be accompanying me in my pack for hikes and fishing trips form here on out. Smith does it again, great product.

Great classic shape

By 

from Belgrade, Serbia

Comments about Smith Lowdown Sunglasses:

I have a fairly large head, and most classic shape glasses look and fit terrible. Lowdown's are the first that I truly like. They are light. The lenses are great. And I don't feel them on my head. Great product.

Chromapop Lowdowns - the best!

By 

from CO and MA

Comments about Smith Lowdown Sunglasses:

I've been wearing these glasses daily for over a year now. Snowboarding, bike riding, hiking - they always stay in place. They look great and the chromapop is really nice. I had an issue with the coating peeling off but Smith's lifetime warranty program and awesome customer service took care of that for me. Best sunglasses I've ever owned!

    Great shades, Amazing lenses, but had durability issues

    By 

    from Bloomington, IN, USA

    Comments about Smith Lowdown Sunglasses:

    Chromapop lenses are amazing, the brown lenses in my experience really do make colors much more vivid. Glasses have been great on fishing trips, tooling around on my SUP, on hikes or just hanging out around town. Only problem I have had is that after less than a year the inside of the lenses had appeared to have started to ripple, and wave. That being said I sent my glasses back to Smith and they were promptly replaced with a brand new pair 100% covered by the warranty. Wish there was an explanation for why that happened so I can try and make sure it doesn't happen again. Would be a solid 5/5 if it wasn't for the durability hick-up.

    Great glasses!

    By 

    from Yuma, AZ, USA

    Comments about Smith Lowdown Sunglasses:

    Being a sunglasses "collector", I have owned every type, brand, and manufacturer. With a retail sunglasses dealer in my family, it has allowed me access to even more, and when they asked me go with Smith Optics, I gave them a shot. The Lowdown matte black with red lens catch the attention of more people than my higher end glasses. These glasses are durable and lightweight. I am actually considering selling most of my sunglasses collection, so I can fill my variety of "shades" with Smith.
