I am a member of the National Ski Patrol and I love Smith Products. I have used Smith products for the last 15 years. I have had 3 pair of sunglasses, three pairs of snow goggles, and 1 pair of motocross goggles. I've always been impressed with them. They are top performers. But please for the Love of God fix the cases. I have the Parallel Sun glasses Black with Polarized Gold Mirror Lenses. My wife left the windows down in the car and the sunglasses case got wet. The next day when I went to use the sunglasses the lenses had waves in them. It appears the water soaked cased caused the lenses to delaminate. I returned the lenses under warranty which Smith replaced at no charge. The only problem is they don't have Polarized Gold Mirror lenses as a replacement so I was bummed when I had to pick different lenses. I do have two complaints...1 major and 2 minor complaints. Minor complaint #1 is not being able to get a Polarized Gold Mirror replacement lenses. Minor complaint #2 Design a case that springs closed for both the sunglasses and the goggles. I'm willing to pay for a case that works. The zippers are cheap and you always feel like they are going to break when you open the case. The MAJOR complaint is this: These sunglasses have interchangeable lenses. I have 4 sets of lenses, yellow, clear, igniter and Polarized Gold Mirror. The case has a silk section to house the spare lenses. Problem is this. Because the lense holder is silk and the lenses are slick all 3 sets of lenses fall out of the silk lense holder and either into the main section of the case or onto the floor. This makes me mad more than anything. I've even be willing to pay for a case and long as it retains the lenses. The silk case for the sunglass lenses is a good idea but please give it a flap that will Velcro down to hold each lense securely in it's appropriate section. This may seem like a small thing it's a HUGH frustration, especially when you put and take your glasses into and out of the cases multiple times daily. The same is true with the snow goggles case. The spare lenses are always falling out. Again the sunglasses and goggles are a Great Products.....the issue with the spare lenses falling out of the sunglasses and goggles case is go bad it angers me just thinking about it. Even though I love your products I may not buy another Smith product just because of this problem. Honestly, I know you can make great products, figure out how to make a great case. If you buy this product be prepared to get mad regarding the case.

After the first week of wearing around town, I would have given them 5 stars. Then I wore them for 4 long days of biking and am giving them a generous 2 star review. I have the pearl with bronze lens and there are little tiny spots all over that the mirror has come off. We can't figure out what could have caused it. We don't use aerosol sunscreen, nothing I use on my bike is ever sprayed, its very strange. I have 2 other brands of mirrored lens glasses that were half the price and after biking thousands of miles with them (one pair I've had for almost 15 years) there is only one tiny scratch. These made it one week and and the lenses are shot. Very disappointing. However, the frame is awesome; no fogging, stays put on your face, and they look super cute when I'm running or biking or just running errands. I haven't contacted Smith about the lens issue yet, but hopefully a replacement lens won't have the same problem.

Comments about Smith Optics - Parallel Sunglasses:

I've been buying this style for years as it is a classic! Great sporting shades with changeable lens with numerous colors to suit the sun brightness! Highly recommended for sport activities. Lens are changeable so when they are scratched you do not have to buy the entire frame, just the lens. Wish they wouldn't scratch as much and that a non scratch coating could be put on but over time maybe...

Love these!

Comments about Smith Optics - Parallel Sunglasses:

I bought these & wore them for a half marathon. I am so pleased with this purchase. It was cloudy most of the day so I wore them on my head mostly. I didn't even notice they were there. When the sun did come out, they worked wonderfully. They stay in place but are so lightweight! I highly recommend these!

Comments about Smith Optics - Parallel Sunglasses:

This is my second pair, having lost my last pair. Great fit and good wind protection on a bike. I like being able to replace the lens. I have destroyed two sets of lenses over the last few years. I think that the max lens also works in the frame, but I haven't tried it..

Comfortable fit for smaller faces!

Comments about Smith Optics - Parallel Sunglasses:

Finally, glasses that fit smaller faces! Very stylish, but durable for activities. I'm an outdoor enthusiast and love how these glasses fit whether mountain biking, hiking Colorado's 14ers, or simply running the trails. Lightweight and comfortable, these glasses stay in place during any activity. LOVE the interchangeable lenses and will probably purchase lighter ones for evening rides and hikes.

Comments about Smith Optics - Parallel Sunglasses:

I like these sunglasses. I have a slim face and they do not overwhelm me. I like that I have two lenses that came with them. I wish there was also a clear lens I could purchase but overall, I think these are great glasses.

I bought these glasses because I needed something that wouldn't move around while I'm running. These fit so nice and stayed put. Wonderful eye protection as well.
