Medium fit with medium coverage, a very cool new glass from Smith.
The Hideouts feature Smith's Techlite Polarized Glass TLT Lenses which offer a very light weight, visually superior optics.
These glasses feature Polarchromic lenses which respond to varying light conditions by adjusting the density of the lens tint. Bright conditions cause the lens to darken, while low light allows the lens to lighten.

What exactly are TLT Optics?
Visual distortion occurs when light waves hit an aggressively-curved lens causing it to bend or distort an objects true size or position. Imagine looking through a fish eye lens. What your eye normally sees, is stretched beyond reality. Get the picture? Tapered Lens Technology corrects the distortion by progressively tapering the lens from the optical center towards the out edges. Light waves are thereby delivered straight to your eye resulting in zero distortion and true optical clarity. What you see is what you get.
What is a Techlite Lens?
Techlite Polarized Glass lenses produce clarity, optical precision, and comfort that surpass all expectations. By absolutely minimizing lens thickness to provide a 20% weight reduction over standard lenses, total frame weight rivals any sunglass on the market.
Created through a finishing process with controls maintaining 1/200th of a millimeter tolerance, each lens is optically-corrected using Tapered Lens Technology. Utilizing a nine layer construction set up, all available light is managed to maximize clarity and eye comfort.
All Techlite Polarized Glass lenses utilize a multi-layer Anti-Reflective (AR) mirror coating to absorb back light effects. A permanent Oleophobic coating protects the lens and mirror coatings by repelling water, dirt, fingerprints, and grease.
What are Evolve Frames?
By utilizing a new material called Rilsan?Clear, we are creating lightweight, durable, and fully
transparent sunglass frames that are over 53% bio-based. Created from easily renewable, non-
genetically modified castor plants, Rilsan?Clear frame is combined with FSC certified packaging and
a coconut fiber storage bag. Not to be forgotten, each logo plaque is "finished" with a clear water-
based protective coating. The end result is a fully considered sunglass and a clearer conscience.
How good is Smith's Polarization?
In our opinion- as good as it gets! Glare off of reflective surfaces decreases depth perception, reduces visual acuity, and causes eye fatigue. Smith Optics Polarized eyewear uses the highest quality polarized film in the world to filter out 99.9% of this visual static for maximum glare-free comfort. Exactingly pre-shaped in the manufacturing process and precisely aligned in the lenses, Smith polarized film is precisely aligned and pre-shaped in the manufacturing process so that it perfectly matches the curvature of our lenses when installed. Each Smith Optics Polarized lens is in fact two thin wafers of either Techlite glass or Carbonic lens material between which this high-grade polarized film is fitted, protecting it from the elements and ensuring distortion free polarization.
