Julbo Zebra Lens Details
The most dissapointing
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
I had high hopes for these, but in the end they failed me much like the Revo guide did. I was looking for a trail runner and activity glasses that would stay on my face. I had always kept them in the case when not in use and really took care of them. In the end the rubber on the arm grips (both sides) came out. As many times as I tried to put it back in they just would not stay. Finally I lost one on the trail and the other just never went back in. Huge design flaw and for this I can not recommend these. Now I have put these through the thick and thin so this did not happen day 1, but I expect to get more than six months out of sunglasses. Aside from this the zebra lenses are awesome and really do transition well. The fit and feel is ergonomic and they are really light taking press of of the bridge of the nose. The nose grip keeps them on. The curvature of the lens gives your great coverage. Long story short aside from the manufacturer flaws these glasses were awesome, just not worth if with a fail to me.

We do not have an Rx Lab here at Backcountry, if you are looking to but in Rx lenses in a pair of glasses then it might be best for you to contact Julbo directly. Julbo can fill single focus prescriptions (not bifocal or progressive prescriptions) and can be reached at 1-800-651-0833.
I bought these for my girlfriend as a gift, but she soon started to get annoyed that everytime she went to look for them I had em so i got these for myself Mountain Biking and love them, I also use them hiking, climbing and running. The look cool and are light and flexible I hardly notice them except for when they've been under a helmet for a few hours and start pinching behind your ear but what glasses don't... When I bike it's through fields, streets, dense forest, powerline cutouts and more and these serve every purpose. I do notice it may take a second or two for the transition to take full effect when going from field to dense forest, but even your eyeball has to adjust a little and expected glasses to adjust as fast may be asking too much...
Fell a little short.
I got a pair of these to review for Trail Runner mag a few months ago and really have to say I like the feel of these glasses. The frames are light weight and articulate to the faces curvature. The frames allow for enough air traffic to reduce fogging of the lenses. The lenses provide ample peripheral and acute visual fields. They also provide great protection from the elements coming at you. I like the nose grips and the arm grips, however my arm grips have begun to peel off which is offensive, but there could be worse things. The only other problem I have slated for these is I am not totally sold on the zebra lens for all sports and activities. When Mt. Biking in dense foliage to flats and open the lens just does not transition fast enough for safe conditions. I think the same could be said for trail running in much the same environs. Keep in mind, speed is the major concern here. I feel if your involved in an activity that is fast paced, then these might not be great choice, but if you are at a slower pace in any activity the lens will adjust gradually and would not cause a safety issue. These glasses are a medium size frame, and I think would work well with a larger and smaller face depending on preference. If you are dead set on a smaller frame these are not for you.
I really like these. I use them for MBing, climbing and hiking. The photochromic lenses work really well but don't get quite dark enough for bright snow conditions. I was on a snow field on a bright day and they didn't quite cut it.
Gold mirror lenses take a little getting used to.
Strap not included.

Yes and Yes.
but only on the Asphalt colorway for the strap.
Beware! Strap not included on Black colorway!
Well, they look super fast, which can become a problem when you just want to wear them around town. They don't fog easily, the optics are good, and the Zebra lenses adjust quickly and to an appropriate darkness. The strap also works very well. It's great for nordic skiing or technical trail runs... If you have a smaller face they tend to look pretty aggressive, but hey, it works...
