Gibson. ... That guy keeps it real.

For everyone who enjoys a good mustache or at least a well-manicured mane of chest hair flying free underneath their Hawaiian shirt, allow us to present the Smith Gibson Sunglasses with polarized lenses. A new spin on classic, Havanna-style frames, the Gibson brings the phrase, "large and in charge" to mind. Shortly after sliding on these large-coverage shades, we immediately felt the urge to buy a vintage Italian sports car and investigate crime too. Weird, no?
  • Polarize lens coating reduces glare from reflective surfaces and water so you can see clearly when the sun beats down
  • Lightweight, optically-precise TLT lenses adapt to high or low amounts of UV light to provide just the right tint for the situation
  • Anti-reflective and hydrophobic lens coating keeps your lenses pristine by resisting
  • Grilamid TR90 frame material is lightweight, flexible, and resistant to impact
  • Hydrophillic Megol nose pads grip your nose and temples even when wet or sweaty so they won't slide off

Killer shades

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

Good coverage, and nice clean polarized lenses. They do scratch easily though and tended to slip down my nose a little when active.

The Gibson of Sunglasses

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

These are great, durable and stylish sunglasses. I've had people on the street stop me to try them on. I've had them for over a year now and haven't lost them. So, that means I truly do like them. The lenses have light scratches now. But I really don't take of care my sunglasses very well. The only reason I didn't give them 5 stars is that I think the polarization could be better. Overall great sunglasses for the price.

Cool beans

Pretty sweet glasses. The polarized lenses are definitely an upgrade from my cheapo sunglasses. Really like the style too, although the plastic side pieces seem a little bit flimsy.

Durable and stylish

I love the Gibsons, its a classic profile backed up with great lenses and a bombproof frame. My only complaint is that the hinges on these aren't as robust as some other Smith glasses, and that means you'll need to whip out a micro-screwdriver every few weeks to tighten them down. Not a big deal really, but if the hinges are loose, they can fly off of your head.

I dig em

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Stylish... AND durable. I've put my pair of Gibson's through the wringer for sure. . . as in=thrown in ski backpack fast without a case . . . then I've fallen with them floating in my pack: They've been pretty smashed and they're still kickin'.... I'm impressed. They end up being my "if I only take one pair of sunglasses" type of shades. . . They do hold up and they'll work for ski-touring/ give you great coverage & sun protection, but then look sweet for round-town . Dig em

So Awesome had to get 2 pairs

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These have an awesome shape to them and fit well. Super light! I got the Red/ black frames - love the lens color on those and the Matt black/ gray. The polarized lens are pretty good too.I would say the face size could be a medium/ large. I tend to go for large but these worked well.

Style Shades

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

These shade are fantastic! Not only are they stylish, but useful outdoors as well. I use them while i'm biking, fishing, running and just hanging out. Overall a light weight and tight fit.

Pretty Great

These are pretty sweet glasses- they fit really well and the optics are really high end-all colors in the outdoors look super great. My only gripes are that there isn't a rubber nose pad, and that the arms feel a bit cheap and plasticky. However this does help them be very light.

Overall a great lens that you can take into the woods, but at the same time not designed for intense outdoor activities.

Smiffs

These sunglasses are sick! I have the brown wood/brown combo and I wear them everywhere. Super light, super comfortable. I've kept them safe from scratches so can't comment on durability.

Rad Shades

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

These glasses are by far my favorite. The polarized lens is ideal. I use these for every occasion so pretty much every day. The only issue is the screws holding in the arms of the lens frequently comes loose but it's a quick fix. Loved these so much I got a pair to give as a gift! Would def. recommend these!

Style

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These are my favorite Smith shades yet. Besides being super stylie they function super well. From climbing to skinning up in Turnagain pass these shades do it all, when it comes to protecting your eyes that is.

Stylish and Optical

  • Gender: Female

Optically superior to anything out there. Seriously. Your eyes will experience a crispness of color and light that will make you an instant convert to the cult of Smith - I like these so much that I am going to get another pair in the green for me. Got these as a present for the BF and man he looks hardcore in them - that is when I have not covertly borrowed them... :) and yes, that is bacon.

Phenomenal optics

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Phenomenal optics (as usual for Smith), great look, super cool shades, but the large frames pressed into the sides of my nose. I think a pair of grips/pads on the nose bridge would lift them up a bit off my face and solve the problem (I don't have a wide nose, either, so...). I sent them back and went with a pair of Oakley Dispatch IIs. Five-star shades if you like the look and can pull it off. It's always tough buying shades online...
