Guide's Choice sunglasses exceed the needs of the most demanding customer. Incorporating Smith's most advanced eyewear technologies, this style boasts wide temples and an aggressive wrap for superior light protection. It is engineered for those that truly believe in life outside walls. Smith TLT (Tapered Lens Technology) lenses are optically corrected to maximize visual clarity and are the most impact resistant you can buy. Patented film-free polarization coating is bonded to the lens without adhesives. This process eliminates the potential cracking, crazing and delamination associated with other polarized lenses. Polarized lenses reduce the effects of the sun's glare on water and snow, making these shades great for paddling, fishing, skiing and snowboarding. Techlite glass TLT lens option are more scratch resistant, 20% lighter than traditional glass and offer 100% UV protection with an anti-reflective coating to ease eye strain. ChromaPop carbonic lens option optimizes color and increases clarity, enabling you to see the outside world with an unparalleled level of vibrance. Check out the video link here on the page to really see the difference it makes. 8 base curve lenses wrap wide for great peripheral vision. Tough and light Evolve(TM) frames are constructed with over 50% bio-based materials. Vacuum applied anti-reflective coatings on the front and back side of the lens eliminate bothersome sidelight reflections. There are coatings on the lenses that repel moisture, grease, and grime. Water will bead up and disperse without streaking and smudges from fingerprints are wiped clean easily. The Megol nose and temple pads gently grip your skin to help keep your Smith frames in place. The gripping power increases when introduced to moisture. Small springs within the hinge structure keep the temples snug against your head, self adjusting to fit a broader range of head shapes and sizes more comfortably. 100% UVA/B/C protection shields your eyes from harmful rays. Medium-Large fit / Medium-Large coverage. The Smith Guide's Choice sunglasses also include an integrated, detachable leash so your sunnies will always be where you need them, when you need them, and not sinking downstream.


You can't catch the fish if you can't see the fish (or so we've been told), so it's not surprising that Smith's Guide's Choice Polarized ChromaPop Sunglasses are ridiculously popular with anglers of all stripes. The ChromaPop polarized lenses are made to boost color, increase contrast, and cut glare like you wouldn't believe, so staying out on the water all day won't burn your retinas, and the eight-base curve gives the Guide's Choice a snug wraparound fit that prevents rays from sneaking in the sides of your eyes. To keep your shades stuck on your face, Smith included hydrophilic Megol nose and temple pads, premium Italian spring hinges, and even a detachable leash that'll make sure you don't spend the day trying to fish your sunnies off the sea floor.
