Our traditional mountaineering sunglasses are timeless classics, and symbolic of our history with the mountains. Rock stars, mountaineers and Julbo fans from all walks of life have praised them to the skies. To celebrate our 125th anniversary and give our fans the sunglasses they expect, we have reissued the legendary Vermont. This is our traditional mountaineering model with round lenses and leather side shields
Makes you feel like you're in the golden age of mountaineering without having to put fresh hobnails into your boots. I have worn them for 2+ years as my main sunglasses (I have another pair to fish with but I never wear them off the water) and they are still killing it. They've survived everything I have thrown at them. Ice, rocks, super glue (whoops!), constant abuse riding in pockets and backpacks before sunlit hours. They are comfortable enough to wear all day (and night, if you want). They kept my eyes safe on glaciers on bright days when my climbing companions complained how bright it was. The ear catch things and leather blinders are surprisingly comfortable. They will severely limit your peripherals so you have to move your head to look around, bummer, I know.
These are marketed as being some of the best mountaineering sunglasses around... maybe if you only intend to LOOK like you go hiking... I purchased these for a trip to Iceland I was planning and thought I’d give them a try. Boy was I wrong. These sunglasses are some of the most uncomfortable eyewear I have worn. The ear wraps dig into the back of your ears that after about 10 minutes they start to hurt. I was able to work with the positioning though so that wasn’t horrible. The main drawback is that these glasses fog up so easy that you can hardly see out of them. I’ve worn 10$ sunglasses while hiking that don’t fog up this much. I kept stopping during the hike and holding up the crew so I could wipe them. Eventually one of the leaders gave their extra pair. These glasses are too dark for everyday Wear and they fog up too much during activity that you should really just stay away from them. Pity too, they do look nice. That’s the one star...
This purchase turned out to be a real bummer for me. I have used the Julbo Glacier style sunglasses for longer than 4 years. This would have been my 3rd pair in this style. When They arrived They came in a bag while my previous pairs came in a hard shell case. The weight of the sunglasses was much lighter than the previous ones I own. The materials were much cheaper from the lenses to the "leather" for the peripheral sun block. The ear hoops were stiff and pushed my ears out while on my head. There was no way to adjust them like previous models. The ends of the ear loop rubber were cut off. The cuts were not even straight. There was no nose piece. The lenses are supposed to serve as the bridge which puts the lenses closer together. It was not a flattering look. I am sad because the previous models were my favorite sunglasses of all time! I will just have to stock up on eBay or something. They put very little effort into these sunglasses. I would not buy them no matter how much they cost. They should not have gotten out of the testing phase.
I'm writing this just so everyone can know that the side shields and nose piece are very easy to remove. The nose piece doesn't look the best and the side shields take away all your peripheral vision. Taking these components off make them look much nicer.
Tl;dr if you are actually going to use these where they were designed to be used, buy them. If you want them for style only, read my dislikes.
I had it for around two months and one day traveling in Perú, preparing equipment to go to a mountain, when I was putting me on in the afternoon before the trip Julbo brokes!
I bought a pair nearly thirty years ago and when I saw Julbo were making them again I jumped at the chance to buy a spare pair, my original pair are still in use today. They are definitely my favourites.
Look awesome, comfortable and blocked the sun out really well on my snowboarding trip. Got lots of positive comments too, don’t see them very often!
Love the sunglasses, very practical for long walks in sunshine
Lovely glasses if this is what you're looking for, very dark so great for snow and really bright sunshine.
Fantastic Sunglasses! Was using them for climbing Kilimanjaro. Life savers!!!
Lightweight and stylish! My partner wears them all the time and perfect for any job. Only down side is they steam up easily so needs removing to clear them.
they fit very well actually I have nothing to say they are great
Excellent product, a bit small but good for my size. The package could have been better. The glasses came in a paper box, no other protection!
As good as I hoped.
Best thing ever
Great quality, great fit!
Los lentes oscuros que Julbo produce son mis favoritos desde que los vi en mi tío hace más de veinte años. Mis primeros Julbo son los Sherpa, muy buenos, ligeros con Spectron 3+. Después conseguí los Julbo Micropore, metálicos, más pesados con Spectron 3.
The most fantastic steampunk style goggles I have ever bought. Five stars for sure.
Poco que decir de ellas. Un tanto llamativas si, pero cumplen una función muy buena.
