From Julbo, a French company that’s been making mountain eye protection for more than 125 years, the Camino sunglasses are great for mountain biking, climbing, cross-country skiing, trail running, and more. Featuring a lightweight, aerodynamic frame made from TPU and nylon, the shades have large lenses that provide a wide field of view for high-intensity activities. The curved temples help keep the glasses firmly in place when things get rough, while integrated side shields block glare and prevent distractions. There are also built-in cord attachment holes on the arms, so you won’t lose your glasses if they fall off.
Note: At checkout, choose the black/red frame with Spectron 3CF lenses, the dark blue/red frame with Spectron 4 lenses, the dark gray/gray frame with Spectron 4 lenses, or the black/black frame with Polarized 3 lenses (+ $15).
Named for its founder, Jules Baud, Julbo has roots in the Jura region of France dating 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 goggles, 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.
