Rating: rated 4 of 5 stars
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $50 (I believe)

Summary

These are a very good pair of sunglasses for everyday use, but they really excel in the bright sunshine and high glare conditions of snow and ice covered terrain. I use them scrambling, hiking, snowshoeing, and cross-country skiing.

Pros

  • Lightweight
  • Comfortable
  • Well-ventilated
  • Reasonably priced

Cons

  • Lenses can still fog

The Julbo Tensing Sunglasses are the ones I use most days. They are comfortable, lightweight, well-vented (although from time to time they have fogged up), and though they seem flimsy, these glasses have been through some rough treatment without any problems.

They are great for anyone spending time in the snow and ice looking forĀ  reliable eye protection. Another plus: at $50 MSRP, they are relatively inexpensive.

Sunny days at the lake and bright mornings in the mountains don't hurt your eyes thanks to the Julbo Tensing M Sunglasses. The Spectron 4 lenses transmit 5% of visible light so you can enjoy the scenery under blue skies. Julbo recommends these lenses for sunny days outdoors but not for driving). Julbo added a flash finish and an anti-reflective coating to the lens for a mirrored effect that improves filtration, reduces eyestrain, and eliminates interference glare. The lightweight polypropylene frame has a bi-injected construction where the exterior is rigid and solid to withstand abrasion and the interior is soft for maximum comfort at all contact points. The frame also floats in water so you can forget about losing this pair in the lake.
