Why We Chose The Julbo Cham Sunglasses: The coolest sunnies you’ve probably never heard of.
Hot diggity dog, we do love a comeback. Whether it’s Sylvester Stallone smashing Dolph Lundgren in the 12th round in Rocky IV or Liverpool fighting tooth and nail to claw back 3 goals in the 2005 Champions League Final against AC Milan, there’s just something special about seeing it.
“Everything about these screams premium, from the tough leather side shields to the Category 4 Lenses”
Our favourite comeback in recent years though, has been The Cham. Julbo’s iconic alpine sunglasses are back on shelves and in the mountains where they belong. And it’s not just misplaced nostalgia that’s led us to this conclusion, these are a pair of genuinely awesome and well thought out sunnies.
Founded in 1888, Julbo made their first pair of sunglasses for crystal hunters in Chamonix who needed to protect their eyes from the harsh environment. They went on to make Glacier Glasses in the 1950’s, used by expert mountaineers to climb the world’s deadliest summits. Since then, they’ve expanded their range to include goggles, helmets and glasses for pretty much every outdoor activity. But for us, the stand out is the Cham.
Who Are The Julbo Cham For?
While any rider could rock a pair of these bad boys, the premium lens quality could lean towards those who spend their time in particularly high altitude (or in sunnier conditions), but also with the side shields they appeal to photographers and videographers.
