A Look Inside Smith MFG

August 22, 2023

Our story starts in 1965 with a groundbreaking ski goggle design featuring a sealed thermal lens and breathable vent foam to address fogging. Guided by product innovation, the outdoor community, and a focus on US manufacturing, we have been pushing sport and optics for nearly 60 years.

MFG: Born in the USA

Born in the garage of Dr. Bob Smith, an orthodontist and OG ski bum, we have a long history and a dedication to US-based manufacturing. From our humble garage beginnings, we have maintained assembly and manufacturing facilities in the US since 1965, creating a nearly 60-year legacy of US-driven innovation and manufacturing.
