The Outlier 2 are the type of sunglasses that you dream about – so that’s a good start! They have a classic shape with a twist, the vintage look attracts the eye – and we are all a little nostalgic at heart. With their strong angles and fashionable look you can wear them in the city as well as in out in your sports gear.
Ok, so they look cool, but do they work? Firstly let’s be clear, they are not designed for glaciers or situations of very high luminosity – simply because of the shape of the glasses with flat lenses do not protect the side of the face so beware in high reflective conditions like snow, water, and high altitude, the UV rays are not blocked, so respect their limitations. They go up to category 3.
Elsewhere in all domains the Outlier 2 excel! We can’t live without them! These Smith glasses are very pleasant to wear due to the undisputable quality of the lenses and the frame which is sublime top quality. We ran a lot wearing these; you wouldn’t believe it at first glance, thinking they are just a fashion accessory, but the fit and grip are unrivalled.
The arms are flexible and tough enough to sit in place without compressing your head and causing any pain. We felt no discomfort whatsoever behind the ears even after many hours of use. The nose piece Smith use a material that’s called Megol, which is extremely efficient. It works when you start sweating, or if your skin is a bit damp its grip increases! So your glasses stay put!
You could imagine that the Smith Outlier 2 are heavy, not at all, a surprising 25g only.
The slow-closing hinges are a dream, no noise, supple, high quality, just like the assembly finishing – all top quality.
First and foremost we always judge sun glasses by the quality of their lenses. Smith are really up there with the best; attention to detail and extremely clear. Quite honestly the definition these glasses give is really worth noting. They use a technology called ChromaPop, which is well detailed on the brand’s website so we won’t go into detail here. Lightweight, very shock resistant, anti-reflection, these polymer lenses marry well with the top quality frame.
Fabulous and high performant, these sun glasses are stylish, well finished, nice to wear and 100% efficient so long as you are not exposed to high intensity luminosity. This type of quality goes for 139 to 169 euros.
