Courtney Dean wrote a review of Julbo Explorer Sunglasses - Alti Spectron 4 Lens on October 7, 2014
Fit: True to size
I took a pair of Julbos with Zebra lenses up Rainier and in bright sun my eyes were really overwhelmed. They just couldn't get dark enough. I found myself resting my eyes closed periodically and was concerned about how well my sight would persevere.
So for my next trip i picked up the Explorers. I made the buy for two reasons: the SPectron 4 lens is as dark as things get, and the Explorers have LOTS of coverage. I wasn't always convinced that the frames on my glasses were large enough. Now, I can go up with confidence that i can tackle a variety of conditions.
I'll probably bring both glasses and make the call based on weather before heading up.
The Explorer with Spectron has great coverage with removable blockers. They still aren't fashionable, but they work. That's more important than anything else. They also feature a nose clip if you want to add the nose cover.
The case is spacious enough to put my other glasses in it. I'm a little bummed there was no cleaning cloth or bag. fortunately i have lost enough pairs of glasses to have a spare.
The lens is dark. Really dark. Perfect for super bright, blue bird days at elevation.
They fit my average sized face nicely and reach my uneven ears pretty well.
I have not tested their resistance to fogging yet. Hoping that doesn't turn out to be a problem.
