From Julbo, a French company that’s been making mountain eye protection for more than 125 years, the Resist sunglasses boast an array of sporty features and a casual styling. Featuring a lightweight, aerodynamic nylon frame, the shades have large lenses that provide a wide field of view for high-intensity activities. The curved temples help keep them firmly in place when things get rough, while Grip Tech on the arms and nose prevent the frame from bouncing or being lifted up by the wind.
Note: At checkout, choose the gray tortoiseshell frame with red Spectron 3CF lenses (base price), the translucent black frame with green Spectron 3CF lenses (base price), the black frame with red REACTIV Zebra Light lenses (+ $40), or the translucent blue frame with pink REACTIV Zebra Light lenses (+ $40).
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.
