Smith Frontman Chromapop Sunglasses Climbing Gear

The sun is more intense up high, and that’s compounded by snowfields. Shades are essential for protecting your most valuable sense. With the ChromaPop, our testers found that they got the protection of a high-end polarized lens without dulling colors and rock features. “It’s like putting a high-definition filter on my eyes,” one user said. The Frontman frame has a sporty wrap-around look (which also reduces the amount of bad rays that get in) with just enough flair to keep you from looking teched out. Scratch-resistant lenses provided a clear view even after rough-and-tumble abuse in the talus fields of Rocky Mountain National Park.
