    • Fit:True to size

    These are pretty awesome sunglasses. They are a great blend of retro design married to top notch technology.



    The lens is anti reflective, category 4 for high altitude ventures... or super sunny days at lower altitudes...! You don't need to be in the Himalayas to wear these puppies.



    The leather side shields do a great job at blocking sunlight from sneaking into the sides and look so cool.

    Initial impressions

    • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit:True to size

    Just got these for a trip to Norway. With 24 hours of sunlight, glacier glasses were on the list of recommended items to bring. While I was the only one in the end who had glacier glasses on the trip, I slowly reverted back to using my regular polarized sunglasses. While touring and hiking up couloirs I found that these weren't as comfortable as my sunnies that did the trick just fine for me. I'll definitely give them another chance, but I realized that I didn't necessarily need them.

    Asian Face Friendly

      Looks like old school mountaineering glasses but with new technology. This was actually the only mountaineering glasses with Spectron lenses that would fit my Asian face. I know there are Asian fit sunglasses out there but none of which are specific glacier glasses. A bit heavier than the other styles since the lenses are glass, but other than that great glasses.

      tired eyes

        Lately my eyes have been tired from the sun, so I got these glasses for full eye protection. My eyes are already feeling better. I like the wrap around arms that grab my ears and hang on comfortably. And the sleek case that protects them when not in use.

        Not bad

          The glasses are very nice. Well fitted, not too heavy, good stuff. However, there's a bit of distortion to the lens, so it takes a little getting used to to wear them. Also note that the brown tint is prevalent in what you're looking at. They make the whole world a bit browner. Not a problem for me, but something another buyer might care to know.

          Flexible Frames Slightly Inconvenient

            Great eye protection, lightweight, comfortable. The only inconvenience is that these glasses have bendable wire frames that don't completely hold up in the pocket of my jacket. When I took them out of the case (which I don't carry when I'm climbing), and placed them in the chest pocket of my jacket, they were bent when I put them on. It took me a while to bend the frames back into a comfortable position. Love the glasses, but would prefer to have solid frames like other Julbo glacier glasses.

            fantastic product

              The optic quality is great, as well as the fit. I do a lot of target shooting and the bridge of the glasses block your field of vision when sighting through a rifle scope. I did not purchase the glasses with the intent of shooting, so I can not be critical about this. It would have been an added bonus if they had worked better for this purpose.
              Great product overall.

              I need thes type of glasses due to eye issues but need to use prescription lenses that are polarized. Can perscription lenses be made to fit these frames?

              Are the lenses glass or a poly-carbonate ?

              Hey McDuke,

              Thanks for the question. I checked with Julbo and found that both of the options offered on this page for the Julbo Micropore Sunglasses - Alti Arc 4+ Lens are a Mineral Glass lens. There is an option that has the Spectron 3 lens as well which is a poly-carbonate lens that is available on the site.

              I know these are designed for glacier climbing but i have an eye condition that requires as eye protection as possible from UV, wind, etc....Does anyone know if these are polarized.

              Can you get prescription lenses for them.

              Yes, you certainly can. Various online and brick/mortar vendors will fit these with a variety of compatible lenses for wear in the mountains or on the sea--anywhere that glare and UV is a particular issue. Different filter/transmission levels available. I've seen up to 91% vis light reduction. I also tried on a pair and like them; good fit, comfortable on the bridge of the nose, and not too curved to take Rx lens. Good luck!

              can you put your precscription lenses in the frame

              I was recently in an optometry's glasses store (or whatever you call it). I noticed they had these (and other Julbos and other brands) available. So I asked them about it and apparently you can get prescription lenses made for them. So the answer is yes, but probably not on backcountry.com.

              My qualifications: I am a congenital 4-eyes, since 5th grade, and unable to wear contacts. Any good optician can put good sun lenses in at any good frames, if you can pay. You never, or rarely, get discounts for putting lenses in frames you bring in. I recommend polarized for most conditions. LIMITS: you can't use the frames with curved lenses. Most Julbos will probably hold Rx lenses. Buy a set, carry them in to the optician and ask: if they can't be fitted, return them. I have a pair of Julbo frames that I bought, tossed the lenses, and had fitted with good quality sunglass lenses - sturdy frames, lasted for years. Thinking about getting a new set, which is what got me here (go for ones with detachable side shields). I also have a pair of Persols that - after tossing the lenses - I fitted with Rx no-line tri focal polarized lenses. Top of the line. Lenses lasted >5 yrs of sun, snow, salt water and getting sat on twice. Hope that helps.

              You can get RX lenses in them at www.opticus.com, based in Boulder Colorado. They ship to places all around the world and specialize in RX lenses. I've known a couple people who got Julbo fitted with an RX lense and had great results.
