Do the job ... well!
My light sensitive eyes love these glasses on the mountain. I use them for climbing and have had no issues with fogging. I have a particularly narrow face but it is easy to adjust them for any size. I feel they provide excellent protection. The photo chromatic lenses adjust well, but I prefer no glasses in dense forest and found these a bit cumbersome to raise and lower because of the ear grips - they are of course designed for the mountains not the trees.

Looked at these for a long time...
Havent gotten to test them really but so far I am pleased with my purchase. They are a little smaller than I expected (or hoped) by they are sufficient. The side shields have some ugly neon green accents but as long as they are on my face, I wont have to see that :P Also, Im not sure what the loop above the nosebridge is for, but I wish they had left it off, I dont like it there...maybe it has a yet-to-be-seen purpose though. I really like the bendable arms, easy to get a perfect fit. And after years of scratched up Oakleys...they scratch-resistant lenses are a nice change. At this point, I would gladly endorse these glasses.

Expected a little better quality
All in all...they do their job. They're very large and block out most if not all sunlight completely. The lenses are a perfect tint...however they do fog quite easily. The rubber ear bands are super adjustable, but when I tighten the strap (which works well), the entire rubber side piece pulls off. I'll be in contact with altrec and or julbo about this, otherwise though they're a good pair of glacier glasses.
