- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I picked these up for use hiking, skiing, and touring and so far I've been impressed! I'm a person who was pretty religious to frogskins for a while for the plastic hinges. After using these I'm very happy to stick with them. The interchangeable pieces are very easy to swap out and stay nice and locked in place. I'm a big fan of the hook pieces to wrap around your ears that are easy to take on and off, but also do a great job keeping them in place.
Utility Mountaineering Glasses
I was looking for a set of mountaineering glasses that fit my head better than the rest (small). The interchangeability attracted me initially. They are incredibly easy to switch between the curved ear pieces and regular. Its also incredibly simple to include the clip keepers or undo the side shields when not in the alpine. They do great for glare in New England, not sure I'd want to use them at elevations over 14K-Ft since it doesn't seem quite as dark as say a Julbo Spec 4+ lens.
While ski mountaineering, climbing, or hiking, these don't fog up all that often when pushing it, but as with all glasses certain temperatures are more problematic. Seem to have better anti-fog characteristics than my Julbo Dust Zebras.
Frames are holding up well so far and I didnt even bother carrying goggles for my ski descent the other day in spring conditions. They don't look terrible either and can be converted into a casual sunglass.
