Full Coverage

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

I bought these to replace a pair of Smith Vanguards that got run over. The fit is similar but I like these a lot more. They are lighter and stay on my face better. They are a great lifestyle piece but stay on great while fishing or even climbing a few mellow rock pitches.

These shades are awesome! Huge coverage which alows for great protection from the elements. I got the black/red w/ gold mirrior and super happy! The gold mirror is much more melow than the picture shows which I was super happy about. Great style and comfort and super light, not much to not like and at an amazing price point. Snag a pair while on sale or you'll be dissapointed.


    These sun-haters stole the show for me on all levels. The Swindler provides function, class, and comfort in a lightweight package that doesn't disappoint. The frames provide full coverage without creating blind spots that can be bothersome when you’re moving around. I overlooked the grips hidden in the temple tips, but that is definitely a cool add-on as a last ditch effort to keep the glasses on your face. Plus, they compliment a Hawaiian shit perfectly.

    All around great product, and I would recommend to anyone.


    Killer Style Shades

      I've used mostly Smith for last few years and I've put myself away from wire framed sunglasses (I keep bending them). I've also inherited a slightly larger face and needed a bit more coverage than normal and the almost aviator style to the frame does that and more. The lens clarity was excellent as well as I went with the Black Red/ Gold Gradient combo which fended off the most intense sun.

      Two issues to note of though. It does utilize the Evolve material so the frame is a bit softer than the grilamid and if you have a high nose-bridge, the Swindler will tend to sit slightly higher on your face than you would like.

      one of my favs

        The Swindler is a GREAT pair of sunglasses. HUGE FAN. They look great and provide a lot of coverage. I have the "brown" lenses- they're marvelous. I dig the "gap" above the nose brim as well. I've had my pair for a long time and they're still my "go-to's" .. noteworthy- they have a nice gentle curve around your head. Super comfy- but aren't going to slip down the nose as much because of it

        Good-lookin but fragile

          These glasses are super-stylie. I've got a small face and they still fit well for big glasses, but a lot of people with larger faces rock these as well. The only thing to keep in mind is that the arms have a tendency to break at the hinge-point, so they aren't your ultradurable shades- gotta take care of 'em.
