Verified Buyer Reviewed by Noelle the runner from Fort Collins on Monday, September 8, 2014Very good for running and biking
Reviewed by Rick avid outdoor participant. from Idaho on Monday, February 10, 2014I bought these glasses to wear when the weather was cloudy or partly sunny. The photogray lenses work great. Clear on cloudy days and dark on sunny days. The shields that are included are a nice bounus. They keep the wind out but allow enought circulation that that glasses don't fog up when you are exercising. I have problems with even a little wind causing my eyes to water when I am running or moutain biking. These glassed solved that problem. Will be buying a second pair so I have a back up. I am looking forward to putting these to the test this summer on river rafting trips.
Reviewed by Ergolad from SoCal on Sunday, February 9, 2014I'm confused what others are reviewing here. My experience with these sunglasses has not been great. I bought them thinking they might be a good solution for trail running, dealing with changing lighting conditions throughout a run. I don't find the photochromic NXT Zebra® lenses adjust at all. Basically, they perform as light yellow glass no matter the condition. I've really given them a fair try having been running with them for 3 months. They just don't deal well with full sun but are OK in indirect light or the shade.
But what really makes them unusable for me is how easily the fog when I'm on a run. I even removed the side shields, hoping the extra airflow might help. No joy. The only way I can keep them from fogging is to push them away from my face, further out on the bridge of my nose. That helps, but is not a practical, or comfortable solution.
I was shopping around on the site here and after reading the reviews thought I'd chime in. I'd expected to keep them, thinking I'd had them too long, but after reviewing the STP return policy, I think I'm going to send them back.
For what it's worth I love other Julbo sunglasses I've purchased here, in particular the Julbo Live aviator style. They're my everyday sunglasses. I've bought probably 6 or 7 pairs. Why so many? Well, the price is right, they have excellent quality, design, aesthetics and… I lose them all the time.
Reviewed by Trout hunter from Gold Country, CA on Tuesday, December 31, 2013A close fitting glass for sports like cycling and spring skiing almost goggles. Secure temples. Interesting lens.
Reviewed by Matt from Anchorage on Thursday, November 28, 2013They fit me perfectly, so if you are me, you will love them. Contrary to another review, the pair I received do lighten and darken as promised. Bonus, you also get a extra pair of side shields which are black, and look a little better in my opinion.
