Eye protection for those who go the distance.
- Zebra Light lenses use photochromic technology that allows the lens tint to change with the amount of available light, when it's bright out the lenses go dark and when it's dark out the lenses turn lighter
- Flexible nose pieces and curved, wrapping temples are shaped for a snug fit with your face
- Grip Tech inserts help the temple pieces comfortably hold on your face without slipping around
- Full lens venting allows for air to enter at the top of the lenses and circulate behind the lenses, which reduces fogging

Great for what they're made for.
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: Runs small
These glasses seem to be great to me so far. I have used them for trail running, and I can tell you they make a huge difference. They allow protection without getting in the way of your eyesight, allowing me to see whats in front of me. ( Trail Running In Luna Sandals; In west texas where cacti, whitebrush, and the rocky terrain could easily ruin your day. ) The only thing I would say about these is that they are not good for driving; at least in my case they didn't get darker. Although, These are by far the best sunglasses I have had for running, biking, and backpacking.

Not great for skiing

I only used these once before returning them, so perhaps they are better in some conditions than others. I have been happily using the normal julbo zebra lens for quite some time, so I thought these would be perfect glasses for me. I tend to fog up glasses backcountry skiing on the up track, so the extra venting of these trail running glasses seemed perfect. I was also eager to try the new 'zebra light' lens of these glasses since I often ski in the low light pea soup of the Pacific Northwest. However, on my first day of using them in cloudy conditions on Mt Rainier the photo chromatic lens was completely off. Instead of adjusting slightly (like my normal zebra lens) to cut the significant glare, they went instantly to the darkest setting making it virtually impossible to see. Despite being intended for trail running the julbo website said these would be good for mountain pursuits but that was not the case for me.
