        Comments about Julbo, Inc Explorer Glacier Glasses:

        Great glacier glasses. Typically excellent Julbo quality. Tried the standard size and they were too small for my fairly large mellon (size 7 3/4). The XLs were a much better fit. The goldilocks in me wishes the XLs were just a little smaller. That is the one very minor drawback to these glasses, they don't seem to fit every face, but if they do fit yours you can't find a better pair for high altitude exploits and very bright conditions. I went with the Spectron lenses, fantastic optical clarity. Personally I prefer non-polarized lenses for extensive glacier travel. I find the non-polarized lenses make it a little easier to judge snow conditions and differentiate snow from ice. Very resistant to fogging.

        Comments about Julbo, Inc Explorer Glacier Glasses:

        After burning my eyes twice this last season I wanted to find a good pair of glasses. My Oakly half jackets have a gap at the bottom that allowed significant reflection onto my eyes.

        I tried on so many and these fit my criteria: full coverage, comfortable, and dark. Personally I like that they have the old school bug eyed look that glacier glasses have.

        Mgear does not carry the "camel" lenses that are photo-chromatic (changes with light intensity) and polarized. A much better lens option but significantly more cashola.

        Julbo produces the best glacier glasses and these are their top pair.

          The mirrored lens were a surprise. The glasses make you look like a bug, but the fit well, have great clarity, and are dark.

          Comments about Julbo, Inc Explorer Glacier Glasses:

          Great pair of glacier glasses. extremly dark and great coverage even without the removeable side shields. the fit is easliy adjusted by bending the arms as you see fit.

          I do have a concerns with them though i have had them for about a month now and they are already scratched, so i am not too sure about the durability of the lenses (i am deployed to Iraq so this could be part of the problem as my use is probably harsher here than back home) my second concern is that the arms block a significant portion of your peripheral vision, but then again these are glacier glasses and meant to keep as much light as possible out of your eyes.

          all in all another quality product from Julbo
