Julbo: A necessity in Andrew Tuckey’s running kit

I discovered Julbo sunglasses when I was in France for the UTMB race. 
Since then they’ve become a standard part of my running kit because of their weight, comfort and performance in varying conditions.

The main reason I choose Julbo’s are the excellent photochromic lenses which work well when running on trails. The ability for the lenses to adapt quickly to the changing lighting conditions is important, especially when running through forested areas where the lighting 
conditions vary so much.

Secondly, the Julbo anti-fog lenses stay clear even when working hard in trying conditions. A lot of sunglasses claim to be anti-fog but in my experience these are the only sunglasses that live up to it. 

I’ll be using the Ultra and Trail models in my upcoming trail races including the North Face 100, Western States and UTMB later in the year.
