The Smith Rebel polarized sunglasses were first released in 1988 and are back by popular demand. The frame's subtle cat-eye shape and empty lower rim design make these retro classics that any face will appreciate.
- 6 Base Curvature
- Cellulose Propionate
- Carbonic TLT
- Smith Polarization
- Medium Fit
6 Base Curvature - The base curvature corresponds to the curve of the lens. The higher the number, the higher the curve. 6 base styles have a “flatter” look. 8-9 base curves hug closer to the face.
Cellulose Propionate - A strong, flexible frame material that is lighter than traditional acetate and more temperature resistant.
Carbonic TLT - Engineered to be the most impact resistant lens material in the world. Carbonic TLT lenses are optically corrected to maximize visual clarity and object definition resulting in zero distortion; what you see is what you get.
Smith Polarization - Smith precisely aligns the polarized visual layer inside the lenses to filter out 99.9% of this “visual static” for a finely tuned, glare-free view of the action.
These measurements include the width of the lens, the width of the bridge and the width of the arms/temples.
Pro Tip - Are polarized sunglasses better? Are they worth the price?
In many cases, yes. All sunglasses reduce brightness and block some amount of harmful UV rays. However, only polarized sunglasses are scientifically constructed to eliminate glare. Not just reduce it, but eliminate it. Polarized sunglasses are ideal for driving, where you get glare from your dash, your windshield and other vehicles. They perform much better than standard sunglasses – reducing eye strain and helping you see better – around water, snow, sand or any other reflective surroundings.
