Welcome to another installment of Gear Spotlight from FREESKIER. Here, we provide a close-up look at the gear and accessories that everyone should know about. The goal? To point you towards the best brands and products on Earth so you can trust your equipment whole-heartedly and have as much fun in the mountains as possible. Read up on Julbo’s Vermont Classic vintage reissue sunglasses, below, then visit us again tomorrow for more awesome gear coverage.
Julbo celebrates its 125th anniversary by bringing back the fan-favorite Vermont Classic, an icon of mountaineering culture that dates back to the 1950s. Handmade in France, these glacier glasses utilize burly yet beautiful lenses along with a leather nose-piece and side shields to block out angry high-alpine UV rays. Rubber, hooked arms keep ‘em comfortably on your ears at all times. As part of the re-release, the “VC” now comes in three eye-catching colorways.
