Your face is the most common place to forget the Julbo Aerolites. Built on the same platform as the Aero, the Aerolite is an equally high-performance optic, only slightly narrower and even lighter. A rimless lens design paired with massive ventilation cutouts on the sides come together to form a pair of glasses so light you’ll forget they're on your face while frantically searching your gear satchel. The 3D Fit Nose and Air Link Temple system use a rubber compound that dampens vibrations and remains grippy throughout the day. The Zebra Light Photochromic Lens is versatile enough to use any time of day, whether an early morning dawn patrol or Sunday-Funday ski outing.

  • Panoramic lenses and full venting encourage airflow even at low speeds, yet provide enough coverage for protection from the elements.
  • 3D Fit Nose and Air Link Temple provide a secure fit while remaining comfortable throughout the day.
  • Photochromic Lens transitions between a dark or light tint based on UV Exposure.

Very nice design overall: large vision coverage yet low profile, secure fit yet feels like it's barely there.

The outstanding characteristic though is the Zebra Light lens. I bought these in large part because of a PDG race report by Patrick Fink at his Mountain Lessons blog where he reported that he used the Zebra Light lens during both the day *and* night portions of the race?!?

Sure enough, I used them for a nighttime skimo race yesterday. The lens might be cutting down on *some* portion of visible light, but placing them on and off my face, I could not tell *any* different at all!

I am really looking forward to using them on tours that start with just barely enough light to see ... as well as tours that finish up a bit too late in the evening, although hoping not to have *too* many of those.
