Comments about Julbo Vermont Classic Glacier Glasses:
I contacted Julbo last year about reissuing old-school glacier glasses and was thrilled when they wrote back to tell me about the Vermont Classics to be released on January 30th, 2013. I quickly ordered a pair and I absolutely love them.
The classic retro-style fits my personal tastes well, and the leather side shields and nose bridge are extremely comfortable. The Spectron 4 lenses are perfect and distortion free. These are just like the glacier glasses I remember wearing in the 1970's and 1980's. Excellent eye wear for those who have an affinity for the past but still want highly functional outdoor eyewear.
The lenses, side shields and nose bridge are all easily removable for cleaning, repair or adjustment. The frames have small thumbscrews at the top which make field servicing easy.
Just a note that being true glacier glasses, peripheral vision is restricted. Also the Spectron 4 lenses are very dark to prevent snow blindness, so casual use on cloudy days or in average or dim light is not recommended. Julbo recommends that these not be used for driving.
Service and delivery comments:
Unfortunately I was forced to get these from a competitor when REI took more than 30 days and still couldn't deliver. They're still an excellent product and I prefer REI as a retailer because of their excellent customer support.
