These sunglasses are the first step on the high mountain kit ladder through a low cost and functional build. They provide comfort and protection from the both light and the elements.
Designed for novice climbers or hikers, with this wraparound, robust model you can tackle the highest mountains with complete protection, without worrying about glare. With their integrated side-shields, polypropylene construction and superior comfort, these glacier sunglasses will also delight the most experienced climbers as emergency sunglasses slipped into the backpack.
Julbo's Tamang Spectron 4 Mountaineering Sunglasses are built to provide high levels of protection. This is achieved through the Category 4 lenses which are specifically designed for high altitude activities where high levels of protection is needed from visible and UV light. The glasses also feature integrated sidewalls to ensure that added protection against the wind, rain and snow you might find up there. The style of these glasses may not be to everyone's taste but they are really comfortable to wear.
This model doesn't have all the features experienced mountaineers might want but this is a great pair of sunglasses for starting out in high mountain environments or keeping in the pack as an emergency pair. The Tamang model has replaced the Tensing but the general shape and style is fairly similar.
