Julbo is a brand that has been around since 1888. They specialize in optics for outdoor athletics including mountaineering, snowboarding, biking, and more and are also great for mainstream use and wear. Julbo is “fully committed to creating a line of sunglasses with world-renowned optical quality melded with a bold sense of style.” They offer durable, affordable, and 100-percent UV protective sunglasses for children. Julbo has its headquarters in France and operates their USA division in Vermont!
We were able to try out 3 different pairs of glasses from Julbo’s line of kids glasses. With different pairs perfectly sized by age, I was able to get a great fitting pair for each of my three little boys. We tried out the Bowl, Booba, and Looping style of glasses. My boys have loved their new glasses especially with the approach of summer and all the extra sunny days lately. Usually I’ll hear complaints of sun in their eyes but we have been grabbing their glasses when we head out the door and now their eyes are being protected from the harmful rays and I hear no more complaints or see squinting faces staring back at me! Each of the pairs we received are such a perfect fit for my boys that they don’t fall off their face and fit comfortably on their nose and ears. The Looping style for babies comes with a detachable cord to help keep the glasses on your youngster. My 20 month old though loved the game of taking them off and on over and over again. I also really love that the infant styles can be worn either direction so its easier for the little ones to put them on without any worry of them being upside down. All of our pairs are very durable and I haven’t noticed any wear at all yet. Glasses we’ve owned in the past have quickly broken the handles or lenses breaking off, which hasn’t even come close to being the case with these glasses from Julbo.
You can find Julbo Glasses available for purchase through their website as well as Amazon, REI, EMS, and many other sports locations. Their baby and kids glasses range in price from $30 to $60 and in size from newborn up to sizes for as old as 13 before transitioning over to the adult line.
