I'm very pleased with the sunglasses & so far I have no complaints. They suite me well & the lenses provide adequate protection. The frame's lightweight so they're fairly comfortable. The frame appears well constructed & quite solid- I accidentally dropped them on a ceramic tile floor & they remained intact with no damage to the frame or lenses. In terms of the packaging, I thought the hard plastic casing to be very ordinary. They may not be top of the range but nevertheless they serve their function well.

let me say right off the bat that i am hard on things. i buy functional gear and actually use things as they were intended to be used. given that, it doesn't take long to separate the weak from the strong. these glasses are just OK. the weak points out-weigh the strong points here, tho.
the fit of these is probably accurate at Medium. i have a small head/face and they still worked for me, however. great tint, really dark for bright outdoor activities.
i DID scratch the lens tho, probably from wearing them at work.
BUT the single MAJOR drawback with these shades: the hinge is TINY, just a single small connection to the frame. after having these glasses most of the summer, they fell off my head ONCE and broke. first drop and they were done for. come ON Julbo, put some beef into it. this company makes sunglasses for extreme outdoor use? not certain i'd want to stake MY life on the dinky hinge. if you're headed out onto the tundra for a month with these, better take five pairs. really a disappointment.
Best Uses: Any outdoor activity
