From Julbo, a French company that’s been making mountain eye protection for more than 125 years, the MonteBianco and MonteRosa sunglasses are well suited for climbing, cross-country skiing, trail running, and more. The curved temples provide maximum coverage, the grip sections ensure a snug fit, and the removable side shields allow you to adapt to any environment in seconds. The MonteBianco are designed to fit larger faces, while the MonteRosa are geared toward women and anyone with a smaller face. Both models come in four different lenses: Spectron 3CF (cat. 3), Spectron 4 (cat. 4), Zebra (anti-fog and photochromic), and Camel (anti-fog, photochromic, and polarizing).

Note: At checkout, choose the MonteBianco sunglasses or the MonteRosa sunglasses, each available in a range of colors. The base price is for models with Spectron 3CF and Spectron 4 lenses, while models with Zebra lenses will be an additional $40 and models with Camel lenses will be an additional $50.
Named for 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.
