THE JULBO RUN, with its NXT lenses, are amazingly clear and literally bullet proof. Does that make them a perfect match for climbers?

$160 Zebra lenses |

THE JULBO RUN, with its NXT lenses, are amazingly clear and literally bullet proof. Does that make them a perfect match for climbers? Hell yes! The wide lenses and curved frames provide full protection from sun. The narrow arms, shock-absorbent nose pads and earpieces grip the head comfortably. I don’t normally wear glasses when I’m actually rock climbing, but the Run fit well enough that I could prop them on my head, look up, take falls, etc., without losing them. I used these glasses extensively while aiding, cleaning and bolting new routes, and they protected my eyes from rock shards, dirt and lichen. Especially if you are into mountaineering, I recommend spending the extra $40 and getting the Zebra lenses, which adapt to varying light conditions, and have an anti-fog coating—perfect in driving snow (low light) and blazing sun alike. Red or orange padding on the ear and nosepieces keeps the Zebra Run readily apparent, even when they’re lying on the ground. At the end of the day, when the light is failing and you don’t need your glasses, this detail might keep you from forgetting them. It has worked for me three times so far!

  • Available with photochromatic or polarized lenses.
  • Colors: Black/grey with polarized lenses and black/blue or grey/orange with Zebra lenses.
  • Excellent fit.
  • Unbreakable bulletproof lenses.

RECOMMENDED USES: Rock climbing, mountaineering, skiing, approaches, aid and bolting.
CONS: The lenses are difficult to reseat if they pop out of the frame. Marmots love the rubber padding—don’t leave the glasses sitting around.
