Great looks, high performance and unbeatable protection from the Shield sunglasses. Some nice stylish touches added to the versatile design mean that you can rely on these in technical mountainous terrain or feel comfortable with them looking good at the beach.

Julbo says:

Julbo has produced a stylish frame for those who climb, run or ride in the mountain to reflect both their spirit of adventure and technical ability. All terrain and all protection, SHIELD will open both your field of vision and your mind to what's possible: REACTIV Photochromic lenses for perfect vision, and non-slip curved temples with Grip Nose so they stay on your head when things get bumpy! Air Flow ventilation and removable soft feel side shields guarantee maximum comfort. The sleek rectangular shape ensures style and bold moves go hand-in-hand.

Julbo's Shield Reactiv High Mountain 2-4 Sunglasses do a great job of balancing style, protection and performance all round. The glasses feature removable sidewalls to ensure that added protection against the wind, rain and snow you might find up there. The style of these glasses makes them much more versatile than some of the other high protection glasses so still look good worn around town. The adjustable arms and strap provided will keep these on your head no matter what shape it is or what activity you're doing.

These come with high performance Category 2-4 Photochromic Lenses. Category 2-4 lenses are specifically designed for high altitude activities where high levels of protection are needed from visible light, UV light and increased glare but conditions can vary.

Optically great, but not a good fit for me

I really want to love these, as they are AMAZING optically. Hands down the clearest, sharpest, overall best lenses I've ever had on a pair of sunglasses. However, as with all Julbo models I've tested, they sit too low on my nose, which means the lenses only shield 80-90 % of my field of vision. Simply put, too much light is leaking in from above. This seems to be a common problem with many Julbo models, I tried the Explorer as well and it was even worse.
