Julbo Explorer Reviews:


Excellent for everyday! I have a pair of these with the X6 Chameleon lenses which just adds the photochromic aspect and I love them! I have eyes that are very sensitive to the light and it gets pretty bright here in Minnesota around all these lakes. I wear them everyday. I get some strange looks once in a while from the folks around my small town because of their "glacier glasses" look that makes them look like goggles, but I could care less! They work for me. They do look a little big at first (and I have a pretty medium sized head!) but they fit very well and I found that the adjustable ear molds and the attached strap will take care of pretty much any slippage during any activity you can come up for them. These are a must have if you need good, all around eye protection.

Great all around! They look huge, but when I got them they were relatively the same size as protective glasses you get at the hardware store. They did not come with a lanyard so I highly recommend you get yourself some. They are also pretty wide so they tend to slide down the bridge of your nose once you start to sweat. The lanyard helps remedy this. Otherwise these glasses are awesome.

These sunglasses are amazing. They are extremely comfortable, easy to adjust around your ears, do not slide down your nose and the clarify everything. Looking through them is like looking through a piece of fine crystal. I highly recommend them and would buy them again.
