From Julbo, a French company that’s been making mountain eye protection for more than 125 years, these photochromic ski goggles feature a frame designed for larger faces—so you can stay comfortable on the slopes all day long. The cylindrical ventilated screen allows them to self-ventilate and provides direct airflow to the inside to prevent fogging. The anatomic frame offers flexibility and comfort while increasing your field of vision up to 30 percent over traditional goggles. Combined with the sturdy, adjustable silicone band, the large overstrap ensures an adaptable fit with a variety of helmets.
Named after its founder, Jules Baud, Julbo has its roots in the Jura region of France, dating all the way back to 1888. Baud started out designing optical eyewear, and at the request of crystal hunters braving the mountains of Chamonix, began making protective sunglasses for the most extreme conditions. In the 1950s, the company revolutionized the market with the Vermont glacier sunglasses, built for mountaineers conquering the highest peaks in the world. And that’s exactly where Julbo tested its products—on 8,000ers like K2, Gasherbrum II, Broad Peak, and Nanga Parbat, among others. In the ‘90s and early aughts, Julbo expanded its line to include a wide range of sports and terrains, and today it even makes eyewear for children.
