ABOUT THE DESIGN

VALLON's first-ever product, now in its 3rd edition, are our most technical glasses to date and have made their way up many of the highest peaks in the world. The vintage round silhouette is protected by leather side shields and comes with a removable centerpiece, combined with mirrored lenses that provide unmatched protection for your eyes. We originally set out to develop the best performance sunglasses for ski touring and mountaineering, and with Heron Glacier we’ve also ended up with the most stylish.

PERFORMANCE

Protective side shields

Inspired by classic alpine design, Heron Glacier feature leather side shields and a detachable centerpiece to block out sunlight and protect against glare, dust, and wind.

OPTICS

High-performance lenses

The brown tint is optimal for snow as the warm perception enhances contrasts, while hydrophobic coating prevents condensation during long ascents. The ultraclear Cat. 4 lenses have a 6% VLT which reduces eyestrain and provide all-day comfort. The lenses have been cut from 2 mm polycarbonate and are shatterproof for maximized safety.

MATERIALS

Adjustable temples

The frame is made from Swiss-invented TR90® polyamide and is incredibly lightweight yet durable. Our fully adjustable and unique temples can be shaped around your ears entirely to your liking, allowing maximum comfort for long days in high alpine territory.

gift for wife

my wife is doing a trek to the Everest Base Camp in 2022 and I bought these for her and she loves them already. I was amazed by the quality and fit of the glasses and the coolness factor is very high. From the box to the beautiful case it reeks of class all around. I certainly made some points at home with this purchase

Diseño espectacular

Las gafas cumplen con lo ofertado, vengo de unas Julbo Vermont Classic que en calidad son un poco superiores, aunque también más caras. Las Heron Glacier son plásticas y el único inconveniente es que en la parte trasera de la oreja molestan después de un rato en la montaña. Ya he contactado con Vallon a ver qué recomendación me dan para solucionar estas molestias. Después de 10 días, siguen sin contestarme.

Hi Alejandro, glad you were happy with the product! We checked and it seems your email was never received by our customer support. In any case we have now sent you an email with instructions on how to easily adjust the temples behind your ears. Best, VALLON
