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.

Seem to be good sunglasses so far. Really enjoy the lens color because they make everything appear sharp and crisp. My only complaint is that I have not had the Tioga Sunglasses for very long and I have already noticed some minor scratching on the lens and the finish is already chipping away on the frames. Overall nice pair of sunglasses. Really enjoy them when I am out fishing as they take the sheen off the water.

"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.

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.

Love these

By 

from Colorado, USA

Comments about Smith Lowdown Sunglasses:

This is my second pair and I love them. I've only had them for a few weeks, I try to rotate so one pair doesn't get trashed. Last week at work, I put them in a case in my backpack while playing some games on the field only to find the polorized layers had separated leaving lines across the lenses. Hopefully this isn't a bad batch me is just a one-off.

Low- key, do it all sunglasses

By 

from Bellingham, WA

Comments about Smith Lowdown Sunglasses:

Whether climbing mountains in the north cascades to sailing boats down the west coast, these sunglasses were apart of my everyday attire. Wake up, get out of bed, throw the sunglasses on, your good to go. The lowdown provided protection for my eyes while holding down a classy style for casual town days. The Lowdown has a snug fit so you don't have to worry about them falling off your face and the lenses are everything you could you ask for. These sunglasses hold true to the outstanding rep that Smith has in the optical industry.

Fit is perfect for me, the lens are great. My only complaint is they are not as"green" as they appear in the online pictures. they have a touch of green in the frames but I was hoping for more.

Very Cool - Fit Amazing

By 

from San Francisco, CA, USA

Comments about Smith Lowdown Sunglasses:

I'm so happy with the fit of these and love the matte black! I think they are "dude glasses" but as a lady, fit me well enough for sure. I think I'm not a Smithee and may not go back. Used to buy Von Zippers, but constantly had them break on me because of their delicate style, these feel really sturdy. Love.

Best glasses I have ever owned!

By 

from Missouri, USA

Comments about Smith Lowdown Sunglasses:

I purchased the lowdown matte tortoise chromapop and the lowdown black out slim and our handsdown the best glasses i have ever owned. As soon as I bought them they shipped out within the hour! The chromapop is amazing and makes everything look better and they help with my eye floaters!

Exactly what I needed

By 

from Memphis, TN, USA

Comments about Smith Lowdown Sunglasses:

I bought these for my trip to California. I was not disappointed. They were the perfect tint and I could see everything from the shadows to the brightly lit areas. The sunsets were a beautiful gold color, and combined with coastal views it was one of the prettiest things I have ever seen. The chromapop appears to mostly enhance the color green, not that it's a bad thing. The trees and grass looked amazing as well.

Will only buy Smith sunglasses. The ChromaPop is a game changer and will never look back. Lowdown style fits perfect and Smith Customer Service is always top notch.

Great shades

Comments about Smith Lowdown Sunglasses:

The Lowdowns are breathable on the face and eyes, and the nose pads hold well even if a little sweaty. The ChromaPop lenses do a great job of making colors more vivid.

Chroma-Pop Runied My Life

By 

from Denver, CO

Comments about Smith Lowdown Sunglasses:

After slipping these bad boys on for the first time, I knew I could never look at the world the same again. The colors out of the chorma brown are so vibrant, it is hard to live life without them on. I get severely depressed when the sun begins to set, as I know I will soon have to take off my lowdown's. Purchase with caution, you will not be able to wear regular sunnies ever again.

Best pair of sunglasses I have owned

By 

from Montana, USA

Comments about Smith Lowdown Sunglasses:

I went through three pairs of cheaper sunglasses last year and decided to up my sunglass game with a pair of smith Chromapops. So far I love them and they are definitely a higher grade of polarization than an average pair of polarized sunglasses.

Great product!

By 

from Orangevale, CA

Comments about Smith Lowdown Sunglasses:

I have been using my Lowdowns for just over two weeks now and absolutely love them! The fit is perfect and I love how light the frames are for all day use. The Chromapop lenses are just what I was hoping for and easy on the eyes for long days in the sun. My only concern is how well the hinges will hold up over time. I suppose time will tell..they've been great so far!

Expensive, but awesome

By 

from Illinois, USA

Comments about Smith Lowdown Sunglasses:

So these sunglasses arent cheap ($170) but well worth the money. Brown polarized chromapop lenses are super clear and make tones much more pleasing. You notice the difference when you put them on, but when you take them off is when you truly realize what these lenses do. I went from Oakley before, and can say these are definitively nicer than my holbrooks. Build quality is solid and I like the matte style of frames. Very cool, stylish and awesome lenses.

Verified Buyer

Comments about Smith Lowdown Sunglasses:

The Lowdown's look and feel great, they have a simple refined style and with ChromaPop lenses they're clarity and color management is incredible. I got them for casual sunglasses to wear around town but end up doing everything in them and getting compliments everywhere.

By 

from San Luis Obispo, CA, USA

Comments about Smith Lowdown Sunglasses:

I previously owned a pair of Lowdown shades and loved them, so it was a no brainer to order another pair when the time came. Love the new black to tortoise fade! Perfect balance of trendy and a classic look.

Great set of Shades

Comments about Smith Lowdown Sunglasses:

Really good sunglasses, hard to beat for the price. The construction feels like it could be more robust but if they stand the test of time than this is a 5 star product!

Awesome Well-Crafted product

By 

from Alexandria, VA, USA

Comments about Smith Lowdown Sunglasses:

I have been wearing Smith sunglasses for years. The lens quality is the best in the Industry. The Lowdown frame fits great. I got the impossibly black style which is great looking and the lenses are pretty dark. They do not look as dark once you put them on, but the amount of light they block out is great.

Great Lenses

By 

from Beech Mountain, NC, USA

Comments about Smith Lowdown Sunglasses:

I bought the Gray/Green Chromapop lenses. They are better than expected! Provides excellent clarity and really does make blue and green objects "pop". The glasses are lightweight and stylish, Smith's online virtual try-on gives a fairly accurate representation of what they will look like. Smith never fails to produce a great pair of sunglasses!
