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.


hi all

if it's a choice I would advise Julbo Explorer Sunglasses - Camel Anti-fog Lens! Very good show.

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.

Anyone know whether these glasses are polarized and can work for fishing?

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.

    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!

    Best Answer

    Kenny . Yes thes will fit RX perfectly . As a metter of fact this is one of the most popular RX frames for Mountaineering. Opticus in Boulder Colorado does an amazing job with RX and has a variety of Lens's to work with

    Visit, like Kirk said, they do an awesome job with RX!!

    What's the status re: fogging? Are these anti-fog?

    Hey David,

    You definitely get enough airflow to prevent fogging, I wouldn't be worried about it.

    Are they all the same size, what if you have a smallish face?

    My experience is that this sunglasses is a little small in sizing. I have a normal to large face but got trouble with the fit and gave them away.

    can you put your precscription lenses in...

    can you put your precscription lenses in the frame

    you could i am sure, but that would kind of defeat the purpose of getting these glasses to begin with...light reduction. you might be hard pressed to find lenses that offer the same amount of visible light reduction.

    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

    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, 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.


    bye bye Julbos

      These are by far the best sunglasses I have ever owned. I use them hiking and kayaking. Only down side is the definatly don't float. After six years they finally landed at the bottom of the Atlantic ocean. Guess I will be getting a new pair soon.


      my julbos

        I have a pair love them big time. I have had them so long I need a new pair. First pair lasted about twelve years of rough use.

        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.

          Will mountaineer glasses work well for mountain biking?

          It's all personal preference, of course, but I wouldn't think they would breathe well enough. I would expect there to be too much sweat buildup inside on the lenses.

          are they good for summer?
