Julbo Eyewear

Julbo Eyewear Logo
The 120-year-old Julbo brand is built on a rich history in alpine-mountaineering, high-altitude, and glacier exploration optics. Including those using prescription eyewear, they have been at the forefront of optical and action sports equipment for the mainstream athlete. From its headquarters high in the Jura Mountains of France, where the company was founded in 1888, three generations have directed Julbo’s evolution from a manufacturer of corrective lenses to a global producer of protective eyewear for all active outdoor pursuits.

Jules Baud, the founder of Julbo began when Crystal hunters, those earning a living by looking for crystals, asked Baud to develop sunglasses to help them better explore the Chamonix Valley. This mountaineering profession has existed since prehistoric times, but it was innovators like Baud who helped set the path for modern mountaineering tech with features like side shields, a horseshoe shape, and lenses made from tinted materials like smoky quartz.

Today, Julbo is an emerging multi-sport eyewear company that makes eyewear for elite outdoor athletes as well as mainstream users. Julbo is fully committed to creating a line of sunglasses with world-renowned optical quality melded with a bold sense of style.

Julbo has also developed a line of affordable, durable, 100-percent UV protective sunglasses for children. Julbo applies the same technology and innovation to its children’s line that it uses to make eyewear for mountain climbers, sailors, and other athletes.

Julbo USA is based in Williston, Vermont.

The Julbo Monterosa is a great sunglass for mountain travels or around town. I bought these for a backpacking trip. Key features include; excellent eye coverage for high altitude/snow travel, gender specific fit - smaller frame to fit women, REACTIV photochromic lens which changes shade depending on what the outside light is, clarity of vision, awesome fit, removable side shields to wear around town, and all around good looking sunglass. I would recommend these glasses to anybody wishing to purchase a sunglass for mountain travel or around town.

I bought these glasses to replace the Julbo Dolgans I have worn for 15 plus years. Since they are no longer made by Julbo.... I bought these. A tad larger frame but still excellent lenses and sun glare blockage with the side shields. Wish they were the Dolgans still but these are the closest you can get.

The Tamang glacier glass is a great value - it comes with protective side shields which offers complete sun protection, superior comfort and Julbo's Spectron 4 lens which is dark enough to protect your eyes on the mountain. I like the attractive shape of the frames and they stay in place during hard pursuits. I highly recommend these for any mountain activity.

The Explorer is Julbo's flagship mountaineering model. With ergonomic, awesome ventilation, and slimmer styling it makes an awesome pair of mountaineering sunglasses. They have removable shields, adjustable temples and high protection lenses which are designed for any glacier travel. I highly recommend these glasses for any alpine environment or for looking stylish out and around town.

The Julbo Aerospace Goggle has won the National Geographic Gear of the Year Award! Steve Casimiro had the following to say: "It s terrifically efficient any fog dissipates in seconds and easily activated while wearing gloves." What makes the Aerospace goggle so special? The simple, proprietary hinging system edges the lens away from the goggle to clear any fog within seconds. By edging the lens away from the frame, you open ventilation on all four sides of the goggle allowing airflow to enter and prevent any moisture build up. It's simple, easy to use and the only antifogging, lightweight goggle on the market that doesn't require batteries or fans.

The Aerospace goggle has a SuperFlow system for optimal ventilation which allows the user to adjust the lens by pulling it forward to help reduce heat buildup and fog. Awesome when backcountry climbing and/or on the chair to reduce fog! It has a minimalist frame which gives the user a super wide field of vision. Awesome goggles!

The looping sunglass is awesome for infants! They are indestructible and the sunglass can be put on either way...so the infant can do it themselves! The glasses fit perfectly due to the design of the frames. The lens are 100% UV protective. I also like that the lenses are dark which is great for infant eye protection.

The glasses are very cool looking. The lenses are not as purple as the photo. They have amazing clarity. However, the price is kind of steep. The style makes them worthy of the price. Enjoy, I use them to fly RC airplanes and they're awesome for the bright sunlight.

I ordered these for granddaughter and my daughter reports that they fit well (7 month old) and she is willing to wear them for short periods and working on longer periods. I wanted best sunglasses for California baby, definitely needed a really good pair for her first camping trip. They are sturdy and stay on, pretty indestructible so far. You have best customer service ever, with the free shipping both ways. Could have ordered from other sources but wanted my daughter to be able to return them if did not work, very pleased and will fit her for quite awhile.

I'm a cyclist and I bought these to protect my eyes from the elements. It took me a few days to get used to the reduction in peripheral vision but otherwise I've been very satisfied with my purchase. Very stylish and the lanyard and a tough carrying case with a padded interior are really nice extra touches.

These are very specialized sunglasses used primarily while mountaineering. I had a previous pair of glacier glasses that were not nearly as dark as I needed, and replaced them with this pair. Wow! Very dark, adjustable around the ears, and much more lightweight than a pair of goggles. You can take the side flaps off, and they kind of work for every day glasses, but the cover over the nose bridge isn't removable. Not for everyone, but if you need some solid glacier glasses, you can't go wrong with these. My only complaint is that they are not polarized. But that isn't expected with a pair of glasses like these.

Noticed everyone in the Stargate movie wore a pair of these. They all seemed to handle battles with the Goa'uld pretty superbly. Secondly, a friend looked mighty cool with a pair of these at Burning man. Now I am mighty cool too. Thanks, girlfriend, for the awesome birthday present.

Great glasses! The glare reduction on these specs is fantastic! The lenses aren't nearly as blue-purple as the supplied image makes them seem, it suits them better this way as I almost didn't buy these based on how super blue the picture looked. Also the sideguards are removable, I don't believe there was anything that said noted this at the time of my purchase. But they're polarized and stay on your head no matter how much you shake them. Awesome product for walking/biking at sea level up to fun on the mountain tops!

These are exactly what I was looking for, and the price was what I expected. However, the lanyard came without a stop-piece so that I can shorten the lanyard and have the glasses stay in place. That reduces the lanyard to nothing but an idiot string.

Sherpa Spectron X5 - Smart looking. I wear them anytime the sun shines as well as snow covering. No squinting at all. When driving with the top down, the side shields reduce side wind on the eyes. I find the sides do not reduce side vision as I use mirrors extensively anyway. The appearance alone is a cut above the rest. I highly recommend them to replace 'ordinary' sunglasses.

Very nice pair of sunglasses - Very high quality glasses. Lenses are top of the line. Comfort is less than perfect but correct. The side protections don't come off. Still an excellent deal for this price. I use them on motorcycle rides and airplane/helicopter flights.

Great value - I purchased these as work eyewear, specifically exterior painting. Sunlight glaring from siding and windows one foot from your face is blinding; these lenses eliminate that problem completely. While I prefer the wrap around ear piece for security, it was necessary to nip off a bit as that final 1/2 inch or so proved troublesome.These are lightweight,seem pretty resilient so far, and will probably survive when I forget them outside overnight. A Julbo at this price is a no brainer.

Cool sunglasses! These are totally cool sunglasses and my son (who I bought them for) loves them. He gets a lot of compliments. He is a little nervous about driving with them on though because they block most of your peripheral vision. Zappos shipped them so fast I actually received them 20 hours after ordering!

Function Dictates Design... The lenses, the frame, the shields... each stands on its own merit. They have, however, when combined provide an outstanding look. Whether it’s brilliant snow or bright beach, you see clearly and no squinting or eye strain. Should I ever lose my pair, I'd replace them in a second.

Love them - I have been looking for eyeware that has good side shields. I review color all day in my job as a Textile Lab Manager. At the end of the day my eyes have had it and I like to keep the sun out and these do a great job. Thanks.
