A classic alpine design
For more than a century, mountaineers have used side shields for optimal eyewear protection against weather elements. The leather side shields not only block direct sunlight and glare, but they also protect against dust and wind, resulting in reduced eye fatigue and less dry eyes during long days in the mountains.
