THE ESSENTIAL SUNGLASSES IN THE MOUNTAINS

Category 3 and 4 lenses

For eye comfort in the mountains, it is essential to have a pair of sunglasses of at least category 3. Indeed, it is necessary to have lenses with a protection index of 3 or 4 to be able to enjoy the landscape, even if the sun is strong.

Category 3 sunglass lenses are perfect for most situations. They filter out up to 90% of the sun's brightness. With a pair of these glasses, your eyes will be well protected even in bright conditions.

Category 4 sunglass lenses are the most powerful and are therefore the ideal lenses for use in the mountains, on glaciers where reverberation is strong. Please note that cat4 glasses are prohibited for driving.

Alpinstore offers you a wide range of sunglasses, which can meet this need for protection. Visit the brands Bollé, Cébé, Solar, Cairn or Julbo which offers you a wide selection.

Photochromy and polarization

Although the category of lenses is extremely important, it is also a good idea to have photochromic or polarized lenses, since they increase the comfort and therefore the protection of your eyes.

Photochromic lenses are lenses that darken or lighten, depending on the luminosity. You will have understood it, these glasses can thus pass from category 2 to category 3 then to category 4 if need be. Whatever the weather, you will be protected and properly protected.

Polarized lenses have a coating against reflections. Polarization minimizes reflections to avoid glare and therefore eye fatigue.

What's better than a pair of sunglasses with photochromic and polarizing lenses?

Side protections

To be protected as much as possible, it is favorable to opt for glasses with side protections. Indeed, the side shells, which can be removable, avoid/diminish all possible light. The glasses will therefore cover your eyes and their contours perfectly, ensuring incredible eye comfort.

At Bollé for example, you will find the glasses Cobalt and Graphite // At Cébé you will have Proguide, Summit, Everest or Lhotse sunglasses // At JulboFor example, Camino, Shield, mountain goggles or Explore 2.0 for example.
