    I tried on every pair of performance sunglasses I could, expecting to buy Oakley's. Oakley's tend to be overstyled, trendy, and not actually comfortable on my face. The Parallel Max's are perfect--true performance glasses. They've been with me on hot (6 mile, 100 degree) mid-summer Texas hikes, long runs, countless mountain bike rides, backpacking trips, all day drives, and even look good with a suit and tie. I lost my first pair on a backpacking trip and immediately replaced them. The fit is perfect, they never move (even when sweaty), the colors look clear and brilliant. I highly recommend!!!

    I purchased this style because it was listed under performance. I assumed that meant for sports. I bought these with the intent of using them on a 50 mile trail run. I currently have Smith (Approach frame) and love them just wanted a large area around my eye to be covered at higher altitudes. I love that the nose piece on my approach lenses can be adjusted to either sit close or father away from my face. The parallel max does not have that option and fogs up immediately when I start sweating. They care stylish and look great on, just not good for running.

    I got the gold lenses (and the radiator of course) for mountain biking, and the glasses are great for that. The frames are solid, and the gold lenses accommodate a wide range of light conditions.

    Comments about Smith Optics Smith Parallel Max Polarized Sunglasses, Brown:

    I love these glasses! I own a road and mountain bike and wear them anytime I'm on either. I also wear them on day hikes or runs with my dog. I have a small face and they look great on and fit snug which was my main concern for when mountain biking. I strongly recommend them to anyone considering purchasing them.

    amazing fit, great tint

    By

    Comments about Smith Optics Smith Parallel Max Polarized Sunglasses, Brown:

    This is my second pair of these, my son made the other pair his own. I've run long trail races in them, the brown polarized sense is unparalleled for dappled shade and sun while trail running and also great in bright light for cycling. They never slip on the face, don't fog and pretty much rock all around.

    As expected Smith quality

    Comments about Smith Optics Smith Parallel Max Polarized Sunglasses, Brown:

    The quality of the frames and lenses are incredible. The Parallel Max glasses are minimalist and offer a low profile frame. I've only worn Smiths for the last 15 years. Every pair has consisted of quality design and construction. I've never felt the need to buy another brand after having nothing but great experiences with Smith.

    Quality product that comes with a spare set of lenses as well. With so many options out there you must try them on for fit, but these are comfy and fit me very well.

    Minimal and Versatile Style

    By 

    from Denver, CO, USA

    Comments about Smith Optics Smith Parallel Max Polarized Sunglasses, Brown:

    I bought these with a primary use in mind: wearing under a motorcycle helmet. So, I wanted a slim design, but with good coverage. I wanted interchangeable lenses, and I wanted straight temples to slide into the helmet easily. Typically these requirements add up to a very sporty design - but, I also wanted a somewhat versatile style - something that looked good off the bike, for casual wear. These fit the bill. Only comment is that I was afraid the "max" may be too large. Now that I've got them in hand, I think there would be room for a super-max, with a bit more coverage at the bottom of the lenses. Same frame, bigger lenses.

    Comments about Smith Optics Smith Parallel Max Polarized Sunglasses, Brown:

    I wear these mountain biking and on the road as well as trail running. the fit is great and does not interfere with the helmet, no frame on the bottom is the way to go so as not to impede on any visibility. very lightweight and even wearing for several hours there is ZERO discomfort. the lenses are pretty amazing, not too dark and complete removal of glare. Great brand! great product!

    Comments about Smith Optics Smith Parallel Max Polarized Sunglasses, Brown:

    Absolutely love the glasses. Tried to add to the replacement lense stock, but not one is in stock. Worried that I got such a great set of glasses but no longer can add lenses to the interchangeable lens deal. Hope that changes, if so, I will be most satisfied

    I purchased these glasses for my husband to use when mountain biking. He loves them. He loves the fit and the lens provides perfect coverage. The best part is the interchangeable lenses.

    SMITH Parallel Max

    By 

    from Orange County California

    Comments about Smith Optics Smith Parallel Max Polarized Sunglasses, Brown:

    I use this product for beach volleyball. I bought SMITH because I have used them for fire fighting in the past and know their strong reliability. Sand Volleyball requires complete protection from flying sand, cutting wind and other players fingers during play. Volleyball also demands optimum field of vision with the glaring sun on the beach and water. The Parallel Max covers the entire eye without being bulky and the cut of the frame does not impede vision of the field. The included lenses provide choices for changing conditions, I would not trade these glasses for anything else while in play! Thanks Smith for another great design - Steve Blackwell

    Comments about Smith Optics Smith Parallel Max Polarized Sunglasses, Brown:

    I've probably had about 5 to 6 different pairs in the last 15 years, the are durable & definitely built to last! At this point I wish I got buy 5 or so & get a pair free as my most recent pair was lifted as I watched football this past weekend =( I am usually able to keep a pair for 3+ years, but not the case this time around. These are definitely the only sunglasses I will ever own!

    Comments about Smith Optics Smith Parallel Max Polarized Sunglasses, Brown:

    I purchased these glasses for mountain biking, and they are working perfectly. They fit snug so they don't move around much. Clarity is outstanding, and no issues with the glasses fogging up. Love the flexibility offered with the interchangeable lenses. I'm super happy with the polarized gold mirror lenses that came with the glasses so I have not tried the others yet.
