Cebe 4000 mineral vs Julbo Micropore

I have owned two pair of Cebe's and I couldn't find another pair in the USA. So I bought the Julbo Micropore. The one thing I noticed with the Julbo right off was the glass tint in very bright snow conditions was slightly tinted yellow. I like that. The world around me was sharp and in focus, no distortion and they felt real good. I don't like the nose bridge. That will not be very durable. Julbo should just use nose pieces and leave the rest off.
Also the bridge between the lenses leaks small dots of light that took some getting used too. I fixed them with black silicon used for windshields so now it's no prob.

I know they are not for driving but on a bright sunny day these are awesome because you are in a cab where the sun doesn't bounce thru the tiny holes. But overall-not the quality of the Cebe 4000, nor the overall fit and finish. I am giving these Julbo's to my brother and buying another pair of Cebe's.
Would I recommend Julbo's to a friend- you bet.
They just weren't the glasses I was hoping for.

Nice Glasses, but they could be better

I added leather around the bottom of the lens ( looks professional ) as the lens needs to pull in closer to the cheek. There is a finger ( small ) width space, between the bottom of the lens and your cheek, so in reflective situations such as snow/ice, light is visible reflecting up from the ground. Also, the area above the bridge of the nose will let light in annoyingly so, so you always need to wear a cap or hat with brim ( same with the Sherpa model also ).
I live at 6000ft, so I need good glasses. These things are minor annoyances, but not deal breakers. Driving at any other time other than high reflective times such as sun on snow covered roads or along coastal areas where there is a lot of bright reflection, is not recommended due to the Cat4 tint. I use the Julbo Sherpa ( CAT3 ) for all other activities and keep the Glacier handy for really intense situations.
I'm happy with these and they cost less than my vuarnets, and are just as effective.
Hope this helps.

Great Glacier Glasses Batman

I give off A LOT of heat and sweat profusely, yet the Julbo Micropore glacier glasses stayed fog free 85% of the time and resisted my sweat mixed with Aloegator sunscreen on a 15 mile 7 hour hike.

Also met with 30+ mile an hour winds on one peak and the glasses with wind shields on performed perfectly; no tearing. These glasses are not polarized but use another UV coating that protects as well but lets filtered light in with better clarity. The rims and lenses allow for optimum visibility.

The only negative is that the nose piece can get a bit uncomfortable after long durations. Not bad discomfort but what doessn't get a bit uncomfortable after a while when your hiking.

Fabuous, but far too big

Brown tinted glass lenses are high quality and distortion free. They provide awesome protection in the extremely harsh sunlight found on snow/glaciers. Glasses provide really solid hold on your head because the ear pieces are rubber coated and bendable, but the glasses are made to fit a really big head.

They are a bit heavy and cold, but that's to be expected when you buy glass/metal rather than plastic. They didn't scratch during the 5-6 days I wore them. I just wish they fit. I would for sure recommend them to .... Humpty Dumpty

Overall good buy

I'm a truck driver and spend several hours during the winter months directly facing the sun and it's reflection from other vehicles. These glasses are the best I've found to help me see what's in front of me in direct sunlight. Very important when driving 80,000 lbs down a busy highway. The glasses are great but the case that they came in seems very cheap and it clamps down tight on the glasses themselves with a latch that is difficult to open. I swapped the case out with something more appropriate for really protecting these beauties.

Excellent Glasses!

The only real complaint we have is regarding the nose piece. Very curious that it is not actually molded to the glasses, rather it is detachable and if that breaks....what then? These glasses replaced a pair we had from another outdoor retailer that they no longer make. Very hard to find glass lenses with soft leather sides and moldable arms. Love that we can just wipe paint overspray off the lens without scratching or don't worry about sparks melting the lens.

glass is nice

Glass is glass, plastic is plastic. You would have to drop these in the gravel, step on them and twist to scratch them. Yes they are a little heavier, but there is nothing more annoying than a scratch across your pupil, weather you're walking a scree covered trail or watching a trout rise. Like my daddy always said "The weight is worth it." I think he was talking about glasses.

Got another pair for the airplane!

The Julbo Micropore, I have found to be the best sunglasses in the cockpit of my plane. I have been asked where I got them and even had a few people ask to buy them from me. I should get a few more pair and sell them to all the linemen I meet on the ramp.

Airplane Driver

I give these Julbo Glasses to Line men/women, who go that extra mile when I fly into an airport and need my aiplane serviced. I have been very happy with the 1st pair I bought over 3 years ago.

Scratches to easily for adventure use

I had these for a week before they were so terribly scratched that they were irritating to wear. New scratches would appear, and I had no idea how they got there. I went to the store to exchange them thinking they were defective and the other pair the store gave me were scratched as well. They were delightful for the drive from LA to San Francisco. It was when they got near dirt and nature where they failed.
