The Julbo Sherpa is the choice of budget minded explorers. Let's face it, expedition costs are not cheap. Add multiple air fares on top of mountains of expensive gear and food and there's not much left over for incidentals. The Sherpa offers full bright light protection, reducing visible light by 88% with Julbo's Spectron X3 lens. Moldable temples, removable side shields, and polycarbonate lens all come included. Huge value at under fifty bucks! (Good lookin' shades, too.) Excellent choice for skiers, snowboarders and mountaineers alike.

PAROFESGood...could be better.

Voted 5/5

These glasses are really great. They provide good coverage, and wearing glacier glasses like these you do look like a Sherpa from the old days. They block a lot of light but are not polarized. Fit securely with bend earpieces and are lightweight. I said it could be better because you my own respiration sometimes it foggs a little bit. For snowy conditions that can be a problem. For dry places, the ultimate glasses ever.

Voted 4/5

These glasses are pretty good. They are really good if you are on a budget, but they aren't the must durable glasses.
