I'm someone who needs more than a bit of coverage in sunglasses as I have wider eyes than normal. When I tried the Smith Forum Sunglasses - Polarized, I found that the fit and optics of the grilamid frame and polarized lens were Smith's usual above normal quality and durability. The frame shape itself left me wanting though as the lens height was too narrow for my eye shape. A shame too, as they did look pretty good on me even with that issue. If you have a medium to narrow eye shape, give these a shot for sure.
Surprisingly lightweight, but they feel sturdy enough.
Polarized lenses do exactly what they're supposed to: nearly eliminate glare off reflective surfaces / water. Shades have just enough coverage around the sides for bright Utah sunny days. Nose and temple pads are insanely grippy.
I have a pretty large head / face and these fit nearly perfect. A little close to the eyes, but I don't have any issues with eyelashes dragging on the inside of the lenses. Sounds weird I know, but wear enough shades and you'll experience this eventually IMO.
These are made so symmetrically that I realized my nose is crooked. Too many face-plants.
Polarized lenses do their job. However the lenses aren't as tall as I'd like, so they don't cover my eyebrows like I'd prefer. My fault though I tried them on at REI before-hand.
This is a classic Smith Sunglass. Fits great,lightweight and one of those styles you can wear Mt Biking in the day and to a wedding at night. Love em!
