Julbo Eyewear

Julbo Eyewear Logo
The 120-year-old Julbo brand is built on a rich history in alpine-mountaineering, high-altitude, and glacier exploration optics. Including those using prescription eyewear, they have been at the forefront of optical and action sports equipment for the mainstream athlete. From its headquarters high in the Jura Mountains of France, where the company was founded in 1888, three generations have directed Julbo’s evolution from a manufacturer of corrective lenses to a global producer of protective eyewear for all active outdoor pursuits.

Jules Baud, the founder of Julbo began when Crystal hunters, those earning a living by looking for crystals, asked Baud to develop sunglasses to help them better explore the Chamonix Valley. This mountaineering profession has existed since prehistoric times, but it was innovators like Baud who helped set the path for modern mountaineering tech with features like side shields, a horseshoe shape, and lenses made from tinted materials like smoky quartz.

Today, Julbo is an emerging multi-sport eyewear company that makes eyewear for elite outdoor athletes as well as mainstream users. Julbo is fully committed to creating a line of sunglasses with world-renowned optical quality melded with a bold sense of style.

Julbo has also developed a line of affordable, durable, 100-percent UV protective sunglasses for children. Julbo applies the same technology and innovation to its children’s line that it uses to make eyewear for mountain climbers, sailors, and other athletes.

Julbo USA is based in Williston, Vermont.

These are lightweight and comfortable, albeit very small in size. The style is okay, but not great. I am very sensitive to the sun, so I am picky and want a lot of sun coverage, however I was literally squinting with these on?! Very disappointed as these claim to be polarized. I thought Julbo was a good name? I guess not. Going back.

Overall, a great set of sunglasses. I use them for bike commuting, but could see them being a pretty great mountain bike sunglass, too. I've been biking with photochromic lenses for years because many of my rides end up after dark and it's nice to carry just one pair of sunglasses. They have a great construction, with a really solid feel without being heavy. They're large enough for an unrestricted field of vision, but not so huge that they look goofy. And they really do look good. The lenses themselves aren't perfect. They don't get quite as dark as others I've used, the darkest tint is basically your standard MTB "trail" tint that gives great contrast but leaves you squinting a bit in direct sunlight. The red reflective coating also gives some faint visual artifacts like ghosting, something that other manufacturers (eg. Oakley) have solved. But I've yet to find something better in a photochromic cycling sunglass, so those faults can be forgiven for all the other positives these have.

The Explorer is Julbo's flagship mountaineering model. With ergonomic, awesome ventilation, and slimmer styling it makes an awesome pair of mountaineering sunglasses. They have removable shields, adjustable temples and high protection lenses which are designed for any glacier travel. I highly recommend these glasses for any alpine environment or for looking stylish out and around town.

The looping sunglass is awesome for infants! They are indestructible and the sunglass can be put on either way...so the infant can do it themselves! The glasses fit perfectly due to the design of the frames. The lens are 100% UV protective. I also like that the lenses are dark which is great for infant eye protection.

I ordered these for granddaughter and my daughter reports that they fit well (7 month old) and she is willing to wear them for short periods and working on longer periods. I wanted best sunglasses for California baby, definitely needed a really good pair for her first camping trip. They are sturdy and stay on, pretty indestructible so far. You have best customer service ever, with the free shipping both ways. Could have ordered from other sources but wanted my daughter to be able to return them if did not work, very pleased and will fit her for quite awhile.
