    Smith has shown up on some of my searches. You like them? I am not familiar with the brand.

    I should start by saying I haven't worn, or even really closely examined, a pair of new Smith sunglasses in years, but they have been around for decades. The ski goggles I bought in 1992 were Smith. They're a brand that is common to ski shops and other outdoor sports shops. They tend to be cheaper than "brand name" (read Rayban, Oakley, Persol etc) sunglasses but are much better than the cheapo drug store/gas station ones. The other brand that slots in with basically the same MO is Suncloud. You probably wouldn't be totally blown away by them but the quality should be decent for the price.

    Yes, I also have Maui Jim, Kaenon, and Persol.

    Older article, but they are mentioned towards the bottom. https://www.hatchmag.com/articles/be...5-2016/7712725

    And the lenses are personal preference. I have brown Maui Jim, and reserve them for the brightest days. Day to day, prefer rose/grey tint.

    Not sure how much you are looking to spend....

    I have these and they are amazing in low light. My eyes are pretty sensitive to sunlight so I have multiple pairs of sunglasses. My Rayban Wayfarers are great in full sun, but these Maui Jim’s perform in all light conditions. I often wear them while driving in the rain because they cut down the glare significantly.
