With a sporty design, lightweight construction, and premium optics, the Smith Parallel Max Interchangeable Sunglasses are equipped to handle your most challenging pursuits. A lightweight rimless design keeps these glasses from weighing on you when you head out for a run, climb, or ride, and the Slider system allows you to quickly swap lenses when lighting conditions suddenly change. Hydrophilic Megol nose and arm pads actually get tackier when wet, meaning your shades won't slip when you work up a sweat or get caught in the rain.

- Q & A
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Ordered these after having tried them on at a store and loving them. The first pair I received was visibly misaligned with the left arm pulling in. This caused the frame face to sit with the left side out more than the right.
Backcountry sent out a replacement set immediately, with a super quick turn around on the next pair.
Next pair wasn't as bad, but suffered from a lesser degree of the same issue. The frame face sits probably a millimeter or two different on the right vs left side. That'd be negligible if we weren't talking about something sitting right in front of the eyes. It's distracting how the glasses sit, as they're either close enough that only side side touches the face on the right, or far enough that you see more out of the frames on the left.
This is probably a brand I'll be now purchasing in person to make sure the fit is perfect before committing to a purchase.
