Why We Like The Lowdown 2 ChromaPop Polarized Sunglasses

Boasting a timeless shape with modern tech, the Smith Lowdown2 Polarized ChromaPop Sunglasses are sure to become your go-to shades for everything from daily commutes to camping trips and beach vacations. They have the same familiar silhouette as the original Lowdowns, just with a slightly updated surface design and flatter 4-base curve for maximum style points. ChromaPop technology delivers crisper, more vivid views of the world around you, and polarized lenses eliminate glare from reflective surfaces so you can see better on open water, snow-covered mountains, and rain-slicked streets alike. Evolve frame material offers ultralight comfort, and hydrophilic nose pads keep them in place through your roughest and rowdiest adventures.

OBSESSED! Sturdy + trendy + polarized

I've used it several times
True to size

I have a larger head but I am obsessed with the larger frames - I wear them when I bike, walk, run, workout, play tennis - they stay on my head and the polarized feature is incredible. Totally worth the $ - I don't have to buy another pair of sunnies for years to come. They fit well under a beanie or a trucker hat. I like the thick frames and side/arms of the sunnies. I know people complain about them being huge but I personally love the fit & would highly recommend these. Great quality, too & love that the bag counts as a glasses cleaner too!

You need a WATERMELON head

Cool glasses... but you need to have a head the size of a watermelon to wear them... not for me :(

Try the lowdown slim style next time my friend

Clean and Clear

I've used it several times

The Smith Lowdown 2 have by far been the best pair of glasses that I've owned. They're lightweight but but to last. I've already dropped them a few times (I know, I know) and have not had any worry that they won't hold up. I went with the deep ink color and am totally satisfied with the look, and the lens that it comes with. The red mirror Chromapop does an excellent job of defining the contrast in color, and the polarization reduces glare making it perfect for any scenario. As far as the fit goes, because I know the Lowdown's come in an XL, I by no means have the largest head, but it's big and the frame, bridge and temple of the Lowdown 2 fit me perfect.

Love this style

This is the second pair I have bought of these, just in a different color. Safe to say they are a favorite

Best Sunnies I've Owned

I've put it through the wringer

The fit is great. The lenses are large enough to provide ample amounts of coverage, without being too large. In addition, the ChromaPop truly is amazing. It offers unrivaled clarity and increased contrast.

I have a slight problem.........

I've put it through the wringer

........I can't stop buying these sunglasses! Haha I just picked up another pair against my better judgement. I will say the Chromapop lenses combined with Polarization is a game changer. Chromapop makes the colors just jump out at you and the polarization will prevent glare. If you have any questions at all, just let me know!

Favorite Sunnies

I've put it through the wringer

I recently lost my last pair of these, so decided to upgrade to the chromapop and boy am I glad I did. The clarity and crispness of vision is the best I have experienced in a pair of sunglasses and the rubber pieces in the nose bridge really lock them in place. Larger lenses offer excellent coverage.

Absolutely Awesome!

I've put it through the wringer

One of my all time favorite frame designs and the chromapop lenses are one of the best available. The new Lowdown 2 version also makes some nice upgrades over the previous. The rubber pieces on the nose bridge work like a charm, especially out on the river. I've lost too many pairs to let my croakies go, but these really stay in place nicely. The frame also feels bomber compared to the originals. Still the same classic look with some of the best light filtration out there. Combo that with the polarization and these are just about the ultimate shades for anything on the water.


How wide are these glasses overall? I understand the lenses are 55mm wide each, and the bridge 16mm. But that doesn’t take into account the frame width on each end for an accurate overall width.
