Great Stylish Active Sunglasses

I've been wearing the Smith Mastermind for a few years now, and while I'm a big fan, I wanted some sunglasses with a little more coverage, and a more snug fit for outdoor activities. So I went ahead and picked up a pair of polarized Frontman's.
I first tested them out fly fishing on the Green River a few weeks back. Everyone knows Smith crushes it on the optics department, and the polarized lenses did a fantastic job of cutting down the glare on the water and allowed me to spot spot some nice Browns and Rainbows.
I've got a big head and the fit was snug enough to keep them in place without having to worry, but it didn't feel like my temples were about to cave in either. The size of the frame on my face was also just right, providing good coverage all the way around, without feeling bulky or making me look like an alien.
Overall, I give these sunnies 5 stars as they are exactly what I was looking for in terms of a stylish, but very functional pair of sunglasses. I look forward to testing them out on some backcountry skinning missions this winter!

This is my sunglass of choice. Of all the Smith glasses in my sample bag, this is my go to piece every day. Looks great (at least I feel like they look good.....which is all that really matters...hahah) while the block the harmful UV rays and wind. Polarized lenses block all of the glare from all around. I put these on my hat when I go inside. Been wearing the same pair for about a year. They never get loose or lose their shape. Super solid style.
Love these shades!
