AlpinistHigh quality

Voted 5/5

I'm very happy with the Micropore Nickel glasses. They offer excellent visibility and sun protection. The mineral glass lens is very high quality. They are also very comfortable to wear; the leather side shields and nose bridge are both very soft, even in cold weather, and the ear pieces are flexible which provides a very comfortable fit. The glasses are well made and durable.
