Heron Glacier was the foundation of VALLON as a brand. We set out to re-invent glacier glasses and create an affordable pair, inspired by classic alpine design, that incorporates the latest high-performance materials.
The frame is made from Swiss-invented TR90® polyamide. The sunglasses are therefore incredibly lightweight and comfortable. The brown-tinted category 4 lens is optimal for snow as its warm perception enhances contrasts. The 2mm thick polycarbonate lens is shatterproof for added safety. The lens is also fully mirror-coated which has the bonus of being anti-reflective. The leather side shields protect the eyes from side glare, while anti-fog coating is applied to prevent condensation. Heron Glacier is a must-have for ski enthusiasts and explorers alike. You will never again want to go ski touring without them.
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.

This product is the perfect one if you’re searching for very high quality sunglasses and you don’t want to renauce to style
Work good, feel good, look good.
Amazing sunglasses! Fits well. Looks cool. Lenses are great!
Удобно, красиво, необычно. Отлично защищает от солнечных лучей.
I bought these glasses for an alpine tour in Austria and I really enjoyed them a lot. The glasses are of good quality and they really look cool compared to other (non-Vallon) glacier glasses and I definitely intend to use them on my next alpine adventure. Two "minor points" that I would like to highlight are the following: (1) when using sunscreen it tends to get into the leather after a long day (and I still need to figure out how I can get it out); and (2) while the glasses are very stable on your ears, it sometimes was a bit clumsy when you want to take them off -particularly when wearing a helmet- so I just kept them on the whole day until I got back to the hut.
