Best of both worlds.

You love the way glacier goggles protect your eyes from intense light when you're on the mountain, but you hate the way they make you look like a mad scientist/space alien when you're back in town. The Julbo Montebianco Sunglasses with Zebra Antifog Lenses give you the hardcore protection you need and the style you want so you only need one pair of shades for everything.
  • Zebra lenses have high-speed photochromic activation and darken almost instantly in bright light
  • Anti-fog treatment is laser finished so it never rubs off
  • Removable wings block light and glare from the side or can be left behind when you're back in the valley
  • Grip tech sculpted inserts on the stems help these sunglasses stay put

Not as dark as expected

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

It doesn't say it here on the backcountry.com page, but Julbo advertises these Zebra lenses as having a darkness range from category 2-4.

I already owned the Julbo Colorado glasses with the Spectron category 4 lens and I liked the idea of a pair of glasses that could get that dark but didn't have to be that dark all the time. I bought these and found that even in direct sunlight they do not get anywhere near as dark as my other category 4 lenses.

I emailed Julbo and was told that these only darken to the "lighter side of category 4". I don't know how they figure out the categories, but saying these darken to category 4 feels misleading. They are not dark enough for glacier travel or even rock climbing on a sunny day without squinting constantly.

Aside from the lens issue, they are comfortable glasses. Good for cloudy winter days skiing or climbing. I have a pretty big head and the glasses do not stay on very securely in an activity like running. If I'm sweating hard, I find myself pushing them back up my nose every 30 seconds.

I ordered another pair with the normal Spectron 4 lenses for glacier travel.
