Still the One, 20 Years Later

Finally decided to replace my circa late 1980's Micropores. Shopped around for best resolution to my needs, including trying on numerous brands and models including the Julbo Explorer. My target activities are alpine hiking, peakbagging, nordic ski touring ,rock climbing, desert hiking and eye protection when bushwhacking. Light conditions may vary during the day so an all-round, versatile lens is required. The Spectron 3 is a suitable lens for sunny to cloudy light conditions. Other Julbo models address this need but...the fit wasn't it. The Micropore can be adjusted for a super snug fit, it will stay in place exactly where you fit them..... no matter what. For resort skiing I use the Julbo Race with Zebra lens. The design is classic and won't be out of style ten years from now. Do recommend an after-market case.
I have had theses glasses for about a year now and they have treated me very well on numerous backcountry expeditions. The rubber nose piece wore out after quite a bit of use and they are sending me a replacement free of charge. The guys who run this company really know how to treat their customers. I would highly recommend these glasses and this company over the big names. They aren't the best glasses in the world, but are indeed pretty high quality and most importantly get the job done.

Is it possible to get these with a prescription lens, or get the frames only so I can have my optician make lenses for them?
Prescription Julbo can be had from this company.
If you are looking for glasses which you can wear entire day without pain - these are your ticket. Temples can be molded exactly to the shape you want them to be. I am literally forgetting that I am wearing sunglasses!
With temples going around your ears they also will firmly stay on when you move.
I am very happy with them.
Great glasses for outdoor adventures!
I was lucky to get this glasses b/c I got them on final sale/clearence. I only paid $5.99! It's crazy...
Anyway, these are pretty cool looking glasses and they work great on snowy days. I live upstate NY and winters are very long up here, and boy am I glad that I have these julbos! I wish the would have come with cloth.
Wishing I had not forgotten my sunglasses
Proper eye wear is key and on day 13 of a 21 day traverse I was not happy with my glasses. Don't wake up snow blind.

I have been looking for the spec on these glasses do they meet ansi z87 standards.
NO! These aren't safety glasses. The glass lens could really make hamburger out of your eyes.

Can I buy the side sheild only for the Julbo Micropore Sunglasses?
Yes, go to Julbo's site and look up Replacement Parts under the Services tab. It's like 7 bucks for a pair.

We don't have a time frame for arrival, the best advice I have is to keep checking back.
One Size too small
I always seem to have a big head for normal fit glasses. This one size for all, didn't fit me. But they were pretty cool looking glasses I gave to a friend.

Very nice glasses that fit comfortably. I would prefer a little darker, but they work fine. Glasses should have included a microfiber cloth for cleaning but did not.
