Just got them yesterday. I have the Techlite Polarchomic Ignitor and love them. I got these as soon as I saw they had a glass lens version of the Ignitor. I have the Frontman with the ChromaPop Polarchromic Ignitor lens. Love them but have never liked plastic lenses aways worn glass. I also have the Chamber with the Techlite Polarchromic Copper lens. The Guide's Choice are by far the best. I fly fish in different lighting and the Ignitor lens is the best I have ever had. They come with a really cool intergraded leash system. The Ignitor lens makes the trout pop in the water better than any other lens color I have ever had. And as for day to day use my eyes have never been happier. I live in Phoenix AZ where the sun is always blazing and bright and love them.

These glasses are quality glasses in that they have the clarity of an expensive pair of sunglasses and feel darn near weightless on your face. Let's not kid ourselves, $190-259.00 for a pair of sunglasses is an expensive pair of glasses for the average Joe's wallet. They are NOT worth the price tag! God forbid anything such as dropping them or any other accident were to occur to your glasses. Hold on tight to your glasses because Smith is holding on tight to your money. You maybe eligible for Smith's recycling program, but that is a joke. You are in essence buying another pair of sunglasses from Smith at cost. (60% off retail). In other words you are out another chunk of money. Think long and hard before dropping your hard earned cash on these glasses and don't be fooled by the "Guides Choice" title. A real guide would be replacing these glasses once a month. There is better out there for the money with a better warranty.

Great glasses, poor leash instructions

By 

from undisclosed

Verified Buyer

Comments about Smith Optics Guides Choice Sunglasses, Flecked Green Tortoise:

The glasses are great. Light, good fit. The lens are bigger than I anticipated, so I probably won't wear them a lot for general purposes.

My only complaint: the instructions on how to attach the integrated leash would be my nominee for "Least helpful ever in a high-end product." They don't do any more than point to where the leash attaches. I think I may have torn up one of the plugs where the leash goes, trying to get it out. Not sure still that I see how it's supposed to go in.

Comments about Smith Optics Guides Choice Sunglasses, Flecked Green Tortoise:

Removal of megols and installation of leash difficult. Instructions inadequate.

Sunglasses fit too loosely.

All of that does not matter, lenses are of highest quality.

Game changer

By 

from WI

Verified Buyer

Comments about Smith Optics Guides Choice Sunglasses, Flecked Green Tortoise:

I've been a Smith fan for years and worn several different models. I guide streams in the Driftless region of Iowa/MN/WI area and light changes frequently with water and weather conditions, shadows, and sun. I need some sunglasses that can combat all those. I loved my backdrops and own several pairs, loving the optics that the glass lenses provided. I was skeptical about getting a new pair of glasses, but it was time. I was blown away by the comfort, fit, and clarity that the Guide's Choice provided. Holy smokes. They are lightweight, providing comfort all day long. Second, I love that they are full coverage. Very little light seeps into your field of view. Wearing them and seeing the world in polarized light becomes the norm. Lastly, they fit under a hat very comfortably and fit a guy "blessed" with a big head very well.

Guides choice with polarchromic lenses

By 

from Colorado, USA

Verified Buyer

Comments about Smith Optics Guides Choice Sunglasses, Flecked Green Tortoise:

Let me be upfront, I have a big head. Finding glasses that fit my head comfortably can be a challenge. These fit great. No pressure or soreness on my nose or temple/over the ears. Its great.

The chromapop and polarchromic combo is spot on. I really like that they aren't to dark and adjust with light conditions. I don't get headaches or eye fatigue after wearing all day. I like the way they fit, look, and how they function. Spent a couple days fishing small streams with them, and could definitely see the difference between wearing these and not. It was really fun to watch the fish come for the fly. I also really like the protection that they provide from many angles.

They are a roomier size of glasses, but work great for me. The one complaint that I do have is that they can slide down my nose sometimes, but that is only when I am running, so not that big of a complaint really.

Well worth the money.

Perfect Choice

By

Verified Buyer

Comments about Smith Optics Guides Choice Sunglasses, Flecked Green Tortoise:

I needed an everyday pair of glasses to replace my beloved Redmond Tortoise TLT polarized that I unfortunately broke. I love the Chromapop plus lenses for their crisp detail and light-as-air comfort. The wrap around frames are perfect and provide full protection without compromising peripheral vision. Thanks SMITH. I LOVE THEM!

My eyes are not the same without them on. Once you put these on, especially in a state like Colorado and the intense sun, you won't be able to live without these.

X-Ray vision

By 

from Connecticut, USA

Verified Buyer

Comments about Smith Optics Guides Choice Sunglasses, Flecked Green Tortoise:

The lens on these are superb, managed to see fish that I would have otherwise missed. This frame sits nicely under the brim of a cap which my old frames did not do. The nosepads alleviates any slippage and the legs sit nicely. The wider legs give great light protection which amplifies your ability to see fish. Love these glasses, super comfortable and the lens technology can't be beat.

Best glasses!

Comments about Smith Optics Guides Choice Sunglasses, Flecked Green Tortoise:

Great fit and opitcal clarity! Not a the biggest fan of the integrated leash, a little difficult to change out and was worried about tearing the rubber inserts. Inserts didn't quite seat flush with frames and caused some discomfort after the 2nd on the water. All in all, an excellent pair of glasses!

I really like these, fit great, lenses are clear and crisp, I've dropped them once and not a scratch so good so far... I was a little skeptical on the fit originally but the ear pieces are flexible and ended up being very comfortable even when they have been on for 8 hours..

Thanks SMITH
