You’re a pro at adapting to your changing environment and so are these Smith Barra sunglasses. This pair moves easily between a long morning on the water to an afternoon in town. Slim side shields pair with a 6-base curve for large coverage that wraps your face and cuts backside glare. Thanks to anti-slip nose and temple pads they’ll stay in place whether you’re digging for tackle or digging for your wallet after lunch.
A high contrast brown base lens boosted with signature ChromaPop color enhancement technology and finished with a deep bronze mirror for a touch of style and performance. Ideal for everyday use, especially when scenery is abundant while you’re spending time on the trail. This lens is polarized and built on our carbonic platform. Provides 100% protection from harmful UVA/B/C rays.
Fit / Integration
Polarization cuts glare. Glare off of horizontal surfaces like snow, water, and asphalt, decreases depth perception, and reduces visual acuity which causes eye fatigue. We precisely align the polarized visual layer inside our lenses to filter out 99.9% of this “visual static” for a finely tuned view of the action.
With Smith Polarchromic, we combine the glare-free benefits of advanced polarization with UV sensitive, self-tint-adjusting photochromic technology to bring you lenses that adapt to changing light conditions, so you always have the perfect tint for the amount of light.
When light passes through a medium it refracts, i.e. changes course. If left uncorrected, this refraction can cause visual distortion and eye fatigue. Smith’s Tapered Lens Technology straightens out the incoming light rays by progressively tapering the lens from the optical center toward the peripheral view. What this means for you is that you see with 100% accuracy and maximum comfort.
Repels moisture, grease, and grime. A barrier between your lenses and the world. Water will bead up and disperse without streaking. Smudges from fingerprints are wiped clean easily.
Vacuum applied, Anti-Reflective (A/R) coatings on the back side of the lens will eliminate bothersome sidelight reflections.
The amount of light allowed into the lens is called Visible Light Transmission or VLT. The higher the VLT, the lighter the lens tint. Bright conditions require a low VLT and darker conditions need a higher VLT. SMITH offers a VLT range from 9% with their Sun lenses and up to a 50% VLT in the Storm lenses.
