The Julbo Sherpa are a lightweight mountaineering glass that will provide protection form the suns rays in all but the brightest of light. These are a much better option for climbing where there is little snow and bright glare is not going to be an issue.
Polycarbonate Spectron 3 lenses will allow 12% of visible light through and are further improved with a light mirror coating on the outside and an anti-glare on the inside. The removable leather patches provide further protection from harmful rays. The arms of the Sherpa can be adjusted by bending, allowing for a perfect and comfortable fit.

Customer Reviews of Julbo Sherpa
Very cool, very retro, if you like that kind of thing. Had a pair very similar in 1974.And they keep the sun out.
Bought these as an alternative to ski goggles for walking in winter conditions in Scotland.
They do the job nicely. They take care of the glare from the snow on a good day, and the side panels help cut out the wind when it picks up.
They are also much, much lighter than goggles, and much easier to pack. Even the case provided is pleasingly lightweight and small. The frames also wrap around the ear, so fit really securely.
