West "By" God
I'd give them a 4.5 if that was a rating option and that's just because I'm stingy. They are a sweet set of shades whther ripping waves, snow or pimping. I never have gotten into the aviator piece preferring functionality over chic. Smith rocks as a company and their products exhibit that rockedness. I have had a pair of smiths on my noggin for over a decade. Sad to say but every pair I have owned so far have had burials at sea (river, lakes, etc). So run up the flag!
This might be the best jacket for the price on the market today. When you need to keep dry yet be light and flexible, this jacket is for you. Because of it's affordability you don't mind wearing this jacket when paddling or fishing. You can depend on it taking what you can dish up too, from hiking to wearing it out on the town.
