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.

Nice quality, but don't get dark enough

Great sunglasses for low light, but they don't get dark enough in bright sun. They are suppose to automatically adjust to the sun conditions, but I don't notice any difference in bright sun...Read complete review

Great sunglasses for low light, but they don't get dark enough in bright sun. They are suppose to automatically adjust to the sun conditions, but I don't notice any difference in bright sun light, and I end up switching to my old sunglasses. Disappointing, because everything else (quality, coverage, etc) is top-notch.

Churripo with the Chiefs

By 

from Los Angeles, CA, USA

Comments about Smith Chief Sunglasses:

These frames have guided me on many fishing journeys and just recently on trek up Mt. Churripo in Costa Rica. During the voyage we hit a 4 hour monsoon of rain and mist. The Chiefs help up with protection and the lenses helped guide me through the storm and to the top of the mountain. I love the coverage on the face, not a single glare gets in.....a great purchase for the cost. For function and purpose these are a must in the pack.

Don't purchase...Chip / Scratch Very easily!

By 

from Ogden, UT, USA

Comments about Smith Chief Sunglasses:

My friend works for Smith and bought me a pair of these Chief sunglasses. They fit great and I loved them, however after having them for a week there was already a chip in the right lens right in my line of sight. I haven't dropped them or used them in any extreme manner. I sent them back to be warrantied and they wanted $80, the sunglasses didn't even cost my friend that much. I went with the highest quality lens because I wanted them to last for a while. Apparently pulling them in and out of the padded case they came with chipped the lens. Now I am stuck with these and I will be going back to my loyal Oakley brand. They have never steered me wrong and have always backed their products.

My Eyes Are Protected

By 

from Idaho

Comments about Smith Chief Sunglasses:

They don't slip. They don't bend. They are very hard to scratch. They look better than any other pair I've worn. They shade my eyes and improve my depth perception at the same time. I have never owned a better pair of glasses. Fini.

#1 pick

By 

from Jupiter, FL, USA

Comments about Smith Chief Sunglasses:

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.

Chief Copper plaid/Copper Mirror

By 

from Helena, MT, USA

Comments about Smith Chief Sunglasses:

If you like to sight fish, you will love these glasses, from all the flats species (Bonefish, Tarpon, Permit) to chasing Roosters on the beach, I have yet to see a situation that causes me to change from these glasses/lenses. Wou will not be dissapointed with these shades no matter what you're looking to catch.

Great glasses!

By 

from Montana

Comments about Smith Chief Sunglasses:

I got the Chief ChromaPop glasses and they've probably been the best all around glasses I've had. I find the style to be in between a practical/sporty and lifestyle look, which I like a lot. They wrap around my face to block sun from the outside. If you take care of your glasses and don't lose them I'd highly recommend putting money into getting the Chromapops. There is a noticeable difference between them and regular polarized lenses in terms of brightness and definition. I fly fish and they were also great at cutting the glare off the water.

Best sunglasses I have ever owned!

By 

from Santa Barbara, CA, USA

Comments about Smith Chief Sunglasses:

Yadin Nicol was nice enough to let me borrow these sunglasses. I loved them so much I got my own! Other sunglasses have always scratched. I have had these sunglasses now for over a month and they have fallen off my hat, motorcycle, and car. They still look brand new! Flawless optics! And I've been complemented on their style (thats never happened). Smith, you have a new fan.

Chief copper/plaid: Awesome performance for fishing and great style too.

By 

from Orange County, CA, USA

Comments about Smith Chief Sunglasses:

My goals were to find high performance sunglasses for fishing that not only had great optics, but also were comfortable enough to wear all day on the water without discomfort. There are many brands on the market (I have owned or tried most) with good optics but I found myself with discomfort within a few hours from awkward fit. These glasses cover all bases and as fringe benefit they look good too.

Rad glasses

By 

from Winthrop, WA, USA

Comments about Smith Chief Sunglasses:

These are very comfortable, awesome looking, amazing lens quality, great coverage glasses. Only reason I didn't give them 5 stars is I'm trying to be partial and for me, with a smaller face, they tend to slip off a bit if I make erratic jerky movements (which I am know for). Otherwise I love the lenses, look and feel of these shade.

one lens quiver

By 

from Boston, MA, USA

Comments about Smith Chief Sunglasses:

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.

Ideal for Fly Fishing

By 

from Orem, UT

Comments about Smith Chief Sunglasses:

The Cheifs are the ultimate fly fishing glasses. Super comfy, phenomincal clarity, and the versatility of the polarchromic lenses is a huge bonus. They provide maximum coverage to both protect your eyes and keep the sun from sneaking in - no matter where it's at.
