Julbo Shield Sunglasses – Editor’s Choice




£145 www.julbo.com

These stylish new sunglasses from Julbo have big lenses giving you a good range of vision. The frames wrapped around my head comfortably, fitting my face well, and staying in place when I was moving. They also come with a strap to keep them in place in case your activity requires it. When you are working hard the ventilation holes around the lenses help to stop them from fogging up. The cameleon lenses are photochromatic, ranging from cat 2-4. They reacted well to changes in the level of light, providing the right amount of protection depending on the environment and I never found myself squinting. There are soft side shields giving your eyes even more protection from reflected light. These can be easily removed if you are using them in an area where there is less glare and would prefer just the traditional frame. I found I needed them attached whenever I was active otherwise I saw light reflections in the lenses.

► Verdict: Sunglasses with both style and substance.

► Best for: High altitude activities requiring excellent protection for your eyes.
