    Just got them yesterday. I have the Techlite Polarchomic Ignitor and love them. I got these as soon as I saw they had a glass lens version of the Ignitor. I have the Frontman with the ChromaPop Polarchromic Ignitor lens. Love them but have never liked plastic lenses aways worn glass. I also have the Chamber with the Techlite Polarchromic Copper lens. The Guide's Choice are by far the best. I fly fish in different lighting and the Ignitor lens is the best I have ever had. They come with a really cool intergraded leash system. The Ignitor lens makes the trout pop in the water better than any other lens color I have ever had. And as for day to day use my eyes have never been happier. I live in Phoenix AZ where the sun is always blazing and bright and love them.

    These glasses are quality glasses in that they have the clarity of an expensive pair of sunglasses and feel darn near weightless on your face. Let's not kid ourselves, $190-259.00 for a pair of sunglasses is an expensive pair of glasses for the average Joe's wallet. They are NOT worth the price tag! God forbid anything such as dropping them or any other accident were to occur to your glasses. Hold on tight to your glasses because Smith is holding on tight to your money. You maybe eligible for Smith's recycling program, but that is a joke. You are in essence buying another pair of sunglasses from Smith at cost. (60% off retail). In other words you are out another chunk of money. Think long and hard before dropping your hard earned cash on these glasses and don't be fooled by the "Guides Choice" title. A real guide would be replacing these glasses once a month. There is better out there for the money with a better warranty.

    Guides choice with polarchromic lenses

    By 

    from Colorado, USA

    Verified Buyer

    Comments about Smith Optics Guides Choice Sunglasses, Flecked Green Tortoise:

    Let me be upfront, I have a big head. Finding glasses that fit my head comfortably can be a challenge. These fit great. No pressure or soreness on my nose or temple/over the ears. Its great.

    The chromapop and polarchromic combo is spot on. I really like that they aren't to dark and adjust with light conditions. I don't get headaches or eye fatigue after wearing all day. I like the way they fit, look, and how they function. Spent a couple days fishing small streams with them, and could definitely see the difference between wearing these and not. It was really fun to watch the fish come for the fly. I also really like the protection that they provide from many angles.

    They are a roomier size of glasses, but work great for me. The one complaint that I do have is that they can slide down my nose sometimes, but that is only when I am running, so not that big of a complaint really.

    Well worth the money.

    I needed an everyday pair of glasses to replace my beloved Redmond Tortoise TLT polarized that I unfortunately broke. I love the Chromapop plus lenses for their crisp detail and light-as-air comfort. The wrap around frames are perfect and provide full protection without compromising peripheral vision. Thanks SMITH. I LOVE THEM!

    My eyes are not the same without them on. Once you put these on, especially in a state like Colorado and the intense sun, you won't be able to live without these.

    Comments about Smith Optics Guides Choice Sunglasses, Flecked Green Tortoise:

    The lens on these are superb, managed to see fish that I would have otherwise missed. This frame sits nicely under the brim of a cap which my old frames did not do. The nosepads alleviates any slippage and the legs sit nicely. The wider legs give great light protection which amplifies your ability to see fish. Love these glasses, super comfortable and the lens technology can't be beat.

    I have 2 pair of the Guides choice I use for tournament bass fishing. One has he low light ignitor lens and the other has copper. Recently used the ignitors for sight fishing smallmouth bass on beds on an overcast and rainy day and I was extremely happy with the performance. Great Glasses!

    Comments about Smith Optics Guides Choice Sunglasses, Flecked Green Tortoise:

    Great fit and opitcal clarity! Not a the biggest fan of the integrated leash, a little difficult to change out and was worried about tearing the rubber inserts. Inserts didn't quite seat flush with frames and caused some discomfort after the 2nd on the water. All in all, an excellent pair of glasses!

    Comments about Smith Optics Guides Choice Sunglasses, Flecked Green Tortoise:

    I really like these, fit great, lenses are clear and crisp, I've dropped them once and not a scratch so good so far... I was a little skeptical on the fit originally but the ear pieces are flexible and ended up being very comfortable even when they have been on for 8 hours..

    Thanks SMITH

    Favorite all around glasses

    Comments about Smith Optics Guides Choice Sunglasses, Flecked Green Tortoise:

    I've had a pair of Guides Choice for many years. Between falling in the water, falling off a mountain, and everything in between, I am now on my 6th pair. In defense of the glasses, they fell off while either on top of my head or tucked into my shirt (never had them fall off while worn properly). All around ultimate pair of glasses for offshore fishing around the world, chasing bones, or leading climbs globally, the Guides Choice are just that: the ultimate guiding sunglasses in all environments.

    Excellent clarity and definition. Perfect for long days at the Gulf of Mexico or fishing the Mobile Delta. Very comfortable fit without feeling like they are going to fall off. The leash was a little tricky to attach however once attached it's perfect. My third pair of Smith Sunglasses, I'm a fan!

    Great glasses, but they slide down my nose.

    Comments about Smith Optics Guides Choice Sunglasses, Flecked Green Tortoise:

    These Guide Choice are great for seeing fish. My guide has them and he could see fish and I couldn't. My prescription is too strong to get the glasses done with you. So I have contacts. Only problem is the glasses slide down my nose and I have trouble keeping them up tight. I've tried silicone nose guards, but they won't stick. The leash can't keep them tight on my nose. And they work great in low light.

    Excellent Lenses, Frames....Ah

    By 

    from Wisconsin, USA

    Verified Buyer

    Comments about Smith Optics Guides Choice Sunglasses, Flecked Green Tortoise:

    I purchases the Photochromic ignitor lenses for the main purpose of fishing. I ordered both the photochromic ignitor and the photochromic copper lenses, to my surprise the ignitor lens is the one I like better for stream fishing. I wish the nose pads would have a little more padding on them, especially with the heavier techlite lens. One other dislike would be how on the side of the sunglasses at the tips where they go over your ears, smith "flared" out these tips. So, when wearing a hat like all fisherman do, you cannot just slide the sunglasses under your hat. You have to shove them up into your hat because of these "flared" tips. Actually super annoying. Lenses are top in the business no doubt, frames can use some work.

    Did not like fit

    Verified Buyer

    Comments about Smith Optics Guides Choice Sunglasses, Flecked Green Tortoise:

    The fit was loose, so loose that the sunglasses would not stay firmly on my face while wearing, which is a big issue when wearing $250 glasses fishing/doing outdoor activities(they fall off easily).

    I will say the polarized glass lenses were excellent, as expected with premium polarized glasses. The frame is light weight(kind of felt a bit flimsy). All in all they are good sunglasses BUT in my opinion not worth the money, and did not fit my face.

    Really like the Guide's Choice line. Have other lenses, but just bought the igniter lens. Just right for days when darker lenses are too dark. The wider bow keeps light from entering from the side, which would impact vision. Love these sunglasses.
