Heron Mountain is a more versatile version of our glacier glasses. The main difference between the two is that Heron Mountain has a category 3 lens that lets through 12% of visible light (as opposed to 6% for Heron Glacier). For general outdoor activities like skiing, ski touring and hiking this is more than enough. It is also beneficial for overcast and darker conditions. 

The frame is made from Swiss-invented TR90® polyamide. The sunglasses are therefore incredibly lightweight and comfortable. The brown-tinted lens is optimal for snow as its warm perception enhances contrasts. The 2mm thick polycarbonate lens is shatterproof for added safety. The leather side shields protect the eyes from side glare, while anti-fog coating is applied to prevent condensation. Heron Mountain is truly the ultimate all-round sunglasses for the mountains. 

The frame fits both men and women. The rounded temples ensure the sunglasses stay put at all times. The temples can easily be shaped for a more comfortable fit around your ears. If you have any questions about sizing please get in touch

Really loved them

Bought them for during lunch on winter holiday. Ended up wearing them the whole vacation and especially on the slopes, because the vision was better than with my goggles. Especially when going from sun into shadow exceptional vision.

Amazing old school glasses!

My glasses arrived in perfect time, and they look extremely cool! I haven't tried them on the snow yet, but I'll do soon. At a first glance they look resistant and lightweight at the same time, with good visibility and pleasant sun filter. The eco-leather case they came with is very useful and allows to put them in a backpack without fear of cracking them. Last but not least, they have an amazing "old school" look that made me fall in love at first sight! Can't wait to test them in the mountain light!

Perfect on and off the mountain

These glasses look good, are durable and offer perfect sun protection. No light exposure on any angle. especially good when using contact lenses. Can‘t give a long time usage review, because I only have them for a week or so. But Im very happy so far.
