From backcountry streams to deep water excursions, we cast with precision thanks to the Guide's Choice Polarchromic Sunglasses giving us a clear view of our target.

Great all around shades.

These polarchromic are incredible. They are very versatile for different lighting. I highly recommend trying them. It’s like having 2 pairs in one. Work great in low light.

Bought the guides choice in Havana brown. Lens is top quality. Would have been 5 stars but they fog really easily for me. Very annoying when wading in a river after trout.

Easy choice

I’ve broke a few pairs due to carelessness. I love them so much that I don’t bother shopping around for new ones. Now I have copper mirror and ignitor lenses both with tech lite glass. Love them both. Smith, please never change a thing!

Great Comfort and Performance

I have finally experienced a true fishing glass with the Techlite Polarchromic Copper Mirror lens. The transition lens is subtle yet works great. I have used these in full sun to mostly cloudy. The clarity and depth of view are great. I can see fish and my flies much better than the "these will suffice" glasses I had been using. Installing the integrated strap is a bit of a hassle, and I think could be done easier. I have almost tore the rubber temple pieces trying to remove and install the strap. Otherwise, the strap is worth putting on and already has kept my glasses from going in the drink. Too bad these glasses cannot actually catch the fish!

Loved them so much i bought 2 diffrent ones....

A good buddy of mine has the Havana with the brown lens and we were out on the lake one day and someway somehow we traded sunglasses for a bit and i fell in love with them. When i got home i promptly ordered a pair right away but i couldnt make up my mind so i ended buying the black with the ignitor lens and copper mirror both are great. I like the ignitor lens when its cloudy and the copper mirror when its just overcast. I have a big head and these sunglasses is a great fit.
