Smith Basecamp

Best for small faces

Brand: Smith

Model: Basecamp



OUR TAKE Don’t have an XL noggin? Get top-notch coverage in a compact package with the Basecamp. Smith’s latest offering—which the company touts as best for “medium” faces—sports slightly smaller-than-average rectangular frames that protected our eyes without swallowing our faces on trail runs, hikes, and ski tours. With Smith’s performance ChromaPop lenses, grippy Megol temple and nose pads, and locking hinges, these shades have top-of-the-line tech.

TRAIL CRED “Most performance sunglasses make me look like the Terminator, but not these,” our Gear Editor says. (“Can confirm,” reports a companion.)
