Smith Interlock “Trace” Sunglasses — New Model Offers Good Coverage

Post by blogger | August 8, 2007      

Believe me, I wouldn’t even mention these things if I wasn’t a fan. I’ve been testing the Smith Interlock O1 model sunglasses for months now and can offer a thumbs-up for their performance and durability. One problem, however, is during spring backcountry skiing I found myself wanting a bit more surface area protecting my eyes. Not to worry, the other day Smith sent over a pair of their latest offering in the Interlock lineup.

Trace model of Smith Interlock sunglasses have interchangeable lenses, good coverage, and style to boot. We love ’em. And with 14 choices in replacement lenses we’re feeling covered — though we’d still like some totally clear ones.

    I own some Smith Mavericks. I lov’em, but I can’t use them in differente light conditions.

    Do you happen to know if the Traces are about the same size? I’m looking at something the same size/form/shape as the Mavericks, but with interchangeable lenses.
